I love Shutterfly

I love Shutterfly! I have been using them for years. I have several photobooks that I have made for me as well as ones I have made for gifts. They are so easy to use and the quality of the products is really outstanding. I have also been making these wall calendars my family as Christmas presents since the kids were born. They make great grandparent gifts.

So I am so excited to get my Christmas cards together this year. Shutterfly has lots of different kinds. So far I am loving these ones:
Shutterfly makes it so easy, just upload the pictures you want, pick the card you want and boom your done. Anything that is easy is great for me. You can check out all the different choices in cards that they have here for photocards or here for Holiday cards. Hurry over there and check them out. They only hard part is picking the one that you love the best.

Lombardi Ranch 2010

Yes, I'm trying to play catch up. I have fallen off the blogging waggon. So here are a few pics from our annual trip to Lombardi Ranch. I love that we have a place where through pictures I can see the different stages of our lives. This year the kids were into the train ride and eating corn. Just a great way to kick off Halloween time!

3rd Birthday Party

The twins are 3!! I can't believe the Bridget and Ethan are three years old. This year we decided to throw them a birthday party. We invited a few friends from church and had a Mickey/Minnie party at the park. The kids had a great time.

My friend Angel made the cake, its so cute! It was minnie on one side and mickey on the other.

Best part of a party is eating the leftover cake!

Disneyland! I LOVE Disneyland. I know its crowded and a long day, but I love the feeling of being there. I love to watch peoples faces when they first get there and when they come out of a ride or show. I have been waiting till I can take my kids. I had been hesitant because Disneyland is a commitment. Its not far but traffic can make for a long trip and its expensive and could be horrible if moods are not right. Joseph had a conference in Anaheim and had to stay over night at a hotel. I saw this as a perfect chance to stay and be right there in the morning, took out traffic out. The kids were not quite three yet so they were still free, I was given a free pass so that took the price out. The next big thing was is I wanted to take two two year olds to Disneyland for the day, by myself. hmmmm.

Well I decided to go for it. And I am so happy we did. We had a wonderful day. It wasn't too crowded and the kids were such great listeners. We were able to do everything that we wanted ans so much more. We had such a great time that we got passes for the whole year form my parents for the kids birthday! Yay! Hope the next times, go as well as this trip.

Small World:
Buzz Lightyear -a hit for Ethan

We rode the tea cups three times!

My only complaint - can not have chains at all the rides, this is how Ethan waited for everything

But its worth it for that smile :)

On Labor Day we decided to have a new adventure and take the kids fishing for the first time. We went out early in the morning at Castaic Lake. Ethan and Bridget were so excited. The practiced the night before at my parents house in the swimming pool, so they were ready to take on the lake. Ethan really got the hang of it and was able to cast his line perfectly by himself. He was really proud. We didn't catch any fish but still had a great morning.

First Day Of School

The twins recently started their second year off preschool at College of the Canyons. This year they are in the yellow room. We are very excited because they have most of the same kids and they have the same teachers. This can always make the transition easier. Bridget and Ethan love school. They go 3 days a week for 3 hours and it is the perfect amount for them and for me. Its nice to have a bit of a break to have some me time where I can run errands, shop, go to the gym, read, etc. This was them so excited on the first day back.

Travel Town

On a beautiful Saturday morning we decided on a whim to go to Travel Town in Griffith Park. I had been there many times as a kid and we used to take my brother there when he was little. I was really excited to take the kids.
We had a wonderful time. It was not very crowed so we were able to go in and see all the trains with no problem.

Mountasia Golf

Ethan and Bridget have herd about golf since they were born. Joseph loves golf. They have had play golf sets and played with daddies golf clubs sometimes. So, they were so excited to go play golf with daddy. We went to mountasia and had a blast. Bridge was really into it, she would take her ball put it right up to the hole and try to get it in. Ethan on the other hand thought that rolling the ball around and swinging the club like a hockey stick was the correct form. Either way you do it, its fun!!

Knotts Berry Farm

Josephs parents and oldest nephew Brett, came to visit us from South Carolina. It was fun to have them visit us. One of the things we did was take a trip to Knotts Berry Farm. I had not been there in years and it was really a great place to bring the kids. They had a blast! They did a lot of things with their grandparents while I got to ride a bunch of the roller coasters. Then we meet up and I got some fun pics of them enjoying themselves. We really had a wonderful fun filled day.
