Christmas Came Early

My mom called last night and said that she and my dad were coming over. I didn't know it, but they were delivering my Christmas present. They bought me the sofa table that I had my eye on. They are so sweet and I'm not sure what I'd do without them. Now, if I could just figure out what to put on my new table!

Then, I found out about this deal from a fellow blogger for 50 free photo cards. (And if you're signing up as a new customer you also get 100 free prints!) Needless to say, I called my mom and had her bring over Maggie and Ellie's Christmas dresses and we had a quick photo shoot. The girls (including Callie) are having professional Christmas portraits taken this weekend, but I wanted a shot of them together in their little dresses for our family Christmas card.

I wanted to share this because if you're like me, your paycheck is small...or non-existent. While I always do some sort of photo in our Christmas card, I often narrow down the list of people who will receive them to save on the cost of pictures and postage. This year, I'll be able to send them to lots of people and I may even have a few left over! We spent quite a bit of money on preschool pictures this year and we will have very few to share with friends and family, so this will be a nice way to share Maggie & Ellie in their Christmas dresses.

And speaking of Baby Ellie...I think we're going to get through our sleep troubles. I should point out that I'm so concerned and trying to be proactive because The Muffin had sleep issues. "They" say that good sleepers aren't born, they're made. We'll see. So far things are going well. :-)
