The One With Our Little Indian

This might be the whitest Indian you have ever seen, but at least she's a cute one!

I hope you all had a happy Thanksgiving, Black Friday, and now Rivalry Game Day! :)

PS- I got my Christmas cards, and I love them! I can't wait to get them all out in the mail. I'll post a picture of which one I picked later.

The One That Might Just Be My Best One Yet

Oh my goodness. I am excited and have to show something off.

Well, for those of you in blogger land who like to read craft blogs, you know that subway art is HOT right now. I decided that it would be cute to make some subway art with a picture in the middle. It could be done for a baby, a family, a holiday, etc. I have no idea where this idea came from, but somehow I imagined it up and it wouldn't leave my mind. Luckily, it's a Saturday night in November (AKA College Football Saturday) so I had some time to myself after I put Paige down and while Rick watched the game.

Sooo..... what do you think!?

I think I'll edit a couple of things after I have time to think about how I can make it better, but until then, I'll just be happy.

How cute would a few of these be on a wall. There could be one for the mom, one for the dad, some for the kids. You could even do one per year with the child's favorite things, age & qualities.

Now I'm just getting ahead of myself... :)

I'm linking up with the following linky parties:

The One WIth The Great Deal!

You know me, and I love great deals! I recently found out from several other bloggers about Shutterfly's blog deal that lets bloggers (like you and me) receive 50 free Christmas cards! Here are some of my favorites...

Which one do you like best? I originally was leaning towards the first one, but now I'm loving the third one...

I've used Shutterfly for ordering prints and photo books for myself and for clients, and I have been very pleased with them. They have great customer service & usually have frequent deals that I like to take advantage of.

The One With Some Great Fall Photo Shoots

I've loved this longer fall season this year. Last year it seemed to come and go too quickly. I've had some fun photo shoots lately too.

About a month ago, I took some autumn senior pictures for Mary and Maddie... twins! They are the cutest twins! We had so much fun goofing around, and the camera loved them!

A week or so ago, I took some pictures of my friend's 2 boys. They love each other so much, I was so impressed! Almost every time I turned around, they were tackling each other, or making inside jokes. I hope my kids get along as well as they did... especially when I'm trying to take pictures of them!

The One Where I've Been Featured & A Little Craft

I've been featured!! Check out A Little Tipsy to see my blog post. She's having a baby, and wanted to have guests all week for a baby themed week. She asked me to post some of my nursery crafts.

* * * * * * *

I was blog hopping as I often do and I ran across this idea for a gift for your spouse.

Have any of you ever been in a date slump? Maybe even when you have a kid or two, and it's harder to get out as often?

Or maybe it's just us...

As soon as Paige goes down for the night we cuddle on the couch and catch up on tv. Although, I love that it's something relaxing, usually entertaining, and something we can do together, it's just that... well... it kind of gets old sometimes and even though we are technically together, we aren't really spending the most quality time together.

So... I decided to make my own version! (surprised?)

I made an envelope out of card stock and put my ideas in, along with a note to Rick. I gave it to him as part of an early Christmas present.

I put ideas like: a trip to our favorite frozen yogurt shop (something we can and often do with Paige), cuddling on the couch while we look at his baby pictures (I've been wanting to see them again now that we have Paige), and other ideas. Some take more planning than others, so we might have to plan ahead first.

What are some of your favorite date night ideas?

The One With A Day In Our Life

Besides sleeping and eating, we do a lot of this...

and cute little Paige likes to always hang out on her side like this...

and she LOVES it when we get to do this...

We're gonna miss it when these are covered in snow...

I've had some great photo shoots lately, I'll try to post pictures of them soon. :)
