Christmas pictures!

I have so fallen in love with my StoryBook Creator Software.  Today, I designed my Christmas picture on it,  super cute and easy, and the best part?  I ordered them on Snapfish...had a coupon code...I got 140 pictures for $1.40!  With shipping the total was $9.90!  For 140 Christmas cards!!  That will fit nicely in the budget! :)

Children love Albums!

This is one of the reasons why I scrapbook.   I walked into the living room the other day to find both of my kids sprawled on the couch looking at their scrapbooks.  I believe kids having their own ablums is important.  As a child, my aunt made me a scrapbook with my name sewn on the cover.  Nothing like we have today...I think it was the old magnitic kind where the page is sticky and the pictures stick to the page. (gasp!) Often as a kid I would go through the album and rearrange the pictures and play with it.   Looking through the album gave me a sense of belonging, an identity.  As a mom, I want to pass that along to my children.  And I hope they enjoy their albums as much as I did mine...but please don't rearrange the pictures! :)
