So, Shutterfly (www.shutterfly.com) asked me to tell you all how awesome they are!  And I will.  Cause they are awesome!  I order all my Christmas cards from them and have also made numerous photobooks for myself and for grandparents.  I also made a First Year Photo Book for Tyler and plan to do so for Tanner also.  These are the photo books I made (http://www.shutterfly.com/photo-books).  Their products are wonderful.  The new line of Christmas cards are my favorite.  (http://www.shutterfly.com/cards-stationery/flat-photo-cards).  I love the versatility of picking 1, 2, 3 or more photos to add to your card.  My goal this week is to take pictures to use for our Christmas cards.  The shipping is fast, the pricing is great, and the quality is phenomenal.  So keep an eye out in your mail box for our Shutterfly Christmas cards :)
OH!  And right now, there is a code for free shipping when you spend $30 or more.  Use the code SHIP30.  You won't be disappointed!

This year was an exceptionally fun year with the boys and Halloween.  I find that as they get older, every holiday (4th of July, Christmas, Halloween, etc) get more and more fun.  They get so much in to the spirit of things and just have a great time.  This year, Tyler was a fireman and Tanner was a (recycled) lion (Tyler's costume from 2 years ago).  We got to dress up for a fun day at Tyler's school, for a carnival at church and to Trick or Treat.  A group of our friends all got together and took the kids out to trick or treat.  Not only did the boys have a blast, it was an enjoyable night out walking with our friends!

          The best picture I got of Tyler's class!

Fall Fun

I love fall.  Despite the fact that we have had days in the 80's and 90's, I still love the fall scents, cool nights, Halloween fun, Thanksgiving, and the gear up to Christmas!  We spent some fun time at the Pumpkin Patch with Ryan and Noah.  Megan and I find it quite great that we can get four tickets to the big slide and sit down and chat for close to an hour while the kids go up and down, up and down.  Then we take them home tired.  Works out really well!  I love that our four boys are all the same ages and so close!
