Remembering Mom on Thanksgiving

It was mom's birthday yesterday. I wish she were here to take part in the feast tomorrow. It was one of her fave holidays (because there was glutonous feasting involved). It would fall on her birthday some years. I miss her dearly and think of her daily. Click here for pics and a post I did this time 2 years ago. She was a fun-loving, crazy lady that loved us like no other. I know that she would be proud of Matt and I. I hope I get to see her again someday.

Mel and Jimmy play in Flagstaff!

We trekked up to Flagstaff last Saturday and played till Monday! It started to SNOW on Sunday! It was the first snow of the season. We loved seeing Mark, taking him to Lunch and Dinner and getting him some groceries! Here's some highlights! We got to relax and enjoy each other. Little America has one of the largest fire places that I have ever seen! We got to sit by the fire and read the newspaper Sunday morning!

We also got to meet Mark's new friend Maria. We of course ate at Oreganos and she joined us.

50 Free Holiday cards from Shutterfly!

This is the first time I have ever tried this so here goes! Thank you Charlotte for the info! I am excited to get free cards but now the hard part is trying to decide which design is best. Unfortunately I won't be able to have all the kids together this year for a family portrait so I am going to have to get creative!

If you are a blogger and want to get in on the action, click here. I really like the card pictured here and I toyed with the idea of not doing cards at all. OR maybe doing New Years cards since I will get the opportunity to get all of the kids together for Christmas Eve.

Every card has to have a picture. Check out this link and pick out your favorites. There so many cool things to choose from and I am surprised that the prices are so reasonable! This card is pretty festive and I would be so torn on which pictures to choose. What do you think? Please drop a comment and let me know which design/direction I should do.

Now that I get free cards, not doing cards is not an option right?
