I have used Shutterfly in the past for pictures and have never been disappointed. However, this will be my first year to get my Christmas cards from them. I have been looking at different websites the past couple of weeks trying to find the perfect card to send to our family and friends this holiday season. I had decided on Shutterfly even BEFORE finding out about this GREAT deal. I just love me some good deals, so the free cards just made my decision that much easier. :)

Birthday Festivities/Halloween Fun

We have had quite the busy schedule around here recently. Here's what happened for Jacob's 2 year birthday fun. Oh, and I went and threw Halloween in too!!
We made cupcakes for Jared's office.
We also took cupcakes to Jacob's class at school.
Aren't these little cookie monster's so cute!?! 1st Happy Birthday

Last week, we had a parade/family picnic for families at Jacob's school. Jared and my parents were all able to come. The kids all looked absolutely adorable in their costumes. To start off, the kids walked down the hall while the parents took lots of pictures. Jacob got a little upset when he saw us, so I didn't get very many.
after the parade

Wednesday night we went to Fall Fest out our church with our neighbors. It.was.crowded. There were tons of games, food, fun, silly costumes, and of course....candy.
