Oh Yeah Baby...

Well, I recently shared with you guys Tyler's birth announcements, and they turned out FABULOUS! We do so much business with Shutterfly right now - I had to tell you about some other things that we're planning on getting for the holidays.

We are in the process of working through which Christmas cards we are going to use - and Shutterfly has an incredible selection! I'm having trouble deciding if I want to go with the traditional 4x8 photo style card or if I want a card stock folding card. I am planning on including my regular Hawkins Family newsletter so the cards will just be one more opportunity to share a photo of our adorable little men. The styles I'm thinking of are:

There are just so many - I can't decide! I'm also waiting for our newborn session photos to come back from the photographer to see what images I want to use... 

In addition to the Christmas cards - we are planning to get our families or at least certain members of our families a 2011 photo calendar with the boys photos through out the year... and I'm thinking of getting some of their Christmas gift tags... or possibly some of their other photo gifts (like mugs, playing cards, coasters, ornaments, and much more!) - so much to choose from!

I'm very excited to get everyone a little something with the boys picture on it this year... but in addition - here's a little something fun for all of you bloggers out there - if you join in and write a post like this (wait until they send you the instructions) you can get 50 free Christmas cards of your own! Just follow this link to sign up and they will send you the instructions on what to post and how to submit your post for the free cards.


  1. I really like the last two; not just because they are faith-based (although it's certainly a plus!), but the layouts are nice. For the red one, you'd be able to do it just like they did - family photo up top, then each of your son's featured beneath in their own frame. I like the last one in that the layout is broken up - pictures on top and on bottom. Although for a Christmas-y feel, I'd probably go with the red one. Brown isn't very festive!

  2. I added myself to follow your blog. You are more than welcome to visit mine and become a follower if you want to.

    God Bless You :-)
