Love holiday weeks!

So I have had a super long weekend off and will return to work tomorrow! Boohooo! However, can I say that I truly enjoyed my time off! I got some scrapping taken care of! Hung out with the boys! Visited with my SIL and her family! The boys really love playing with their cousins even though they may be 8-10 years older than them! LOL! I joked that having my nieces spend an afternoon with my two rough and wild boys was the best birth control imagined! LOL!

And the motivation for the next few days is that I only have a three-day work week! WHEEEEHEEEE! Can you tell that I am pretty pumped about that!?! Church is also starting to kick up in activities too! So I am really glad we missed the fall sports sign up cutoffs because Jake and I would not have cut it this season!

I also got some shopping in and that was actually enjoyable! I was able to shop in the misses' department instead of plus/womens' and could've gone down another size...but I am still timid to show off my shape (or lack of shape!) so opted for a little loose! Then after dinner I dragged the family out for a walk/bike ride! Of course, Zach was dragging towards the end of our 2-mile trek and I had to push his bike. It was exercise never the less!

So playing around with photoshop more and trying to decide what do next...so I played with Christmas photo cards. I don't know about you, but choosing the perfect card each Christmas is a chore for me because I want to be unique but also chose one that fits our family...religious, colors match, etc. Plus this year, I want to venture out and make one that is not the run-of-the-mill store generated card so I am going to make my own. So I am in need of your feedback...

And for giving me some advice...I have a freebie for you! Here's a template of the card above.

Don't forget to leave me some love!

Blessings to you all!
