|CJ's first Christmas with Santa|
One of the signs that Christmas is coming soon to our house is a visit to the mall Santa to have CJ's annual photo taken. I think that RJ and I are usually more excited about this visit than our son. But this year as a 3-year-old, he at least knows who Santa is.
In order to make our lives easier, we've used Shutterfly the past two years to make our Christmas cards. They let you choose the cover photo and then your own inside design. We go with the Santa photo on the front and then a couple of winter photos inside with a Scripture verse and Christmas greeting. I also love the Cranberry Swirl and Holly Frame card designs.
To make Christmas gifts easy, we also make CJ calendars for his grandparents. These adorable calendars feature a CJ photo for each month, tailored to each set of grandparents.
Using personalized photos helps connect us to family and friends at the holidays. If you have a blog (Facebook profiles/postings and private blogs are not eligible), you can get 50 free holidays cards from Shutterfly -- sign up here.
