The Holiday Spirit

Here's something to perk up your holiday spirit! Shutterfly is giving away 50 free Christmas cards to all bloggers!

(random card from Shutterfly)

DH and I's first Christmas together was about 10 days after we got engaged. We got engaged on 12.15.07. He had to go push snow after we got engaged early that morning. We were on some snowy banks where my furbaby "found" the ring then I also had to go to work. I got home before he did so I created our first Christmas card together.

When he FINALLY got off work, we'd picked up the cards and took them to his parents' house where we didn't say anything about getting engaged, instead just handed her the card. On the bottom of the card, it said, "P.S. We're engaged!!!" It took her like 5 minutes to catch on then she got really excited! It was so much fun. We headed over to his sister's after that and told her, she noticed it right away. Then we mailed the cards to all our friends and family the next day and that's how we told everyone we were engaged.

When we started TTC in October 2009, I knew it would happen right away and we'd be 7-8 weeks at Christmas time so we'd be able to do the same thing with our Christmas cards except write, "P.S. We're having a baby!!!" No such luck but maybe one day...

So jump over to Shutterfly and check out their Christmas cards, address labels and lots of other fun items!
