Well another year has flown by! Looking at all my pictures taken this year it's hard to believe how much my kids change in just one short year. Today I'm thanking God for all he has done in 2010 and looking forward to a new year where I know He is going to do even more awesome things. He is writing a story for my family. And I can't wait to see what's going to happen next. It was January 2010 that God began to change my heart for the orphan. I think it started with the earthquake in Haiti. Seeing the children on the news did something in my heart. Ever since then my heart has been broken. I talked about it with my husband. And we both decided we wanted to adopt as soon as we can. I also want to be used to advocate for them to spread the word about adoption. What ever God wants to use me for. This year was a year of changing our hearts. Letting us see that things like a life with a huge house and fancy cars and two kids may be the American dream. But not HIS dream. We are learning to save more, spend less. To trust that even though things are tough lately that God is our provider and He has a plan for us. I can't wait to see what you do Lord in 2011.

Sunday night Alex woke up with a fever. Now Rory has it too. So the last few days have been full of taking care of two sickies. Which has been kind of relaxing..instead of cleaning for my big Christmas Eve party we have been laying around watching Veggie tales and munching on pretzels and ginger Ale.:) And of course they want to snuggle all the time :) Right now Alex is sleeping. And Rory is laying beside me as I blog. But with all this staying in and snuggling I am so praying that I don't get this flu! Christmas Eve we are having both mine and Eric's parents over for a Christmas Eve party. Then Christmas morning we will drive up to moms exchange gifts, stay for a big lunch. Then head over to Eric's parents to exchange gifts with them and a big dinner! So as you can see I don't have time to get sick :)

We also had our first big(ish) snow of the season recently...thought I would post a pic up for you guys :)

Yes I know they are dressed kinda funny looking. Rory has a dress over a skirt, over sweatpants...she is very ummmmm expressive in her choice of clothes lately.
So I gotta run, But I hope your having fun these last few days before Christmas!

Shutterfly makes me smile :)

Every year I want so bad to get some beautiful photo cards sent out to family and friends. But I never get around to it. This year I heard about an awesome promotion from a blogger friend. So I am taking part in the Shutterfly promotion. I love Shutterfly. This will be my first time ordering their photo cards. but we have used their services before and just think they are great. We also use them to store our photo's online. Which is awesome assurance for me that if something happens to my computer, my pictures are safely online. So as you can tell I am really excited about this and can't wait to get my photo cards in the mail for everyone to see! I wanted your help on picking out a card! It's a hard choice because I seriously love so  many of them. Plus I wanted you to see how cute they are just in case you are looking for some for yourself! I selected a few of my favorites from the Photo cards tell me which you like!
I love the simple elegance of this one.Pretty Poinsettia 
I also love this  one. I love how I can get two picture on it instead of just the one.And it's just so cute! Peppermint Dots
This one is called Royal Elegance 
These are just a few of a whole bunch of awesome cards you can check out for the Holidays 
I am also thinking about getting my kids to send out some Thank yous
It would be a great thing to have around the house with the holidays coming and all. Well that's what I wanted to show you today. Some adorable cards and ideas for the holidays :) And also know that even though this is a promotion, I wouldn't promote a product on here unless i truly thought it worthy. So you can be sure shutterfly is an awesome place to check out!! Hope you guys have a great day.

Baby It's cold outside!

It is so cold outside today! I wish it could just be a stay inside in my jammie's day for us. But I have an eye doctor appointment. I have had an eye infection since September! So please pray it's cleared up this time. I am sooo ready to have my contacts back.

So about my day..Before I head out I plan to do some homeschooling..clean the house..maybe bake.. lol. Ok probably not all that! But I did check blogger :) Oh and I just registered on Shutterfly to participate in their 50 free holiday card promotion! I'm super excited about it! I really need to get Christmas Cards out and this would be a  great help! Check it out! Well  I hope you guys have a great day :)
