Free Christmas Cards, Of Course!!!

http://www.shutterfly.com/ is offering bloggers 50 free Chrsitmas cards when you blog about their great products. I have not used http://www.shutterfly.com/ for Christmas cards before, but have used them for storing and printing my digital photos and have never been let down.

This year I have had a difficult time finding an online Christmas card service that would allow me to upload my pictures I was determined to use for my Christmas cards because they had too many megapixels. I am not a computer wiz with pictures and after I played around with the pictures to try to make them fit into another card site, I gave up. I was so distraught on what I was going to do about my card because I was determined to use my pictures. I saw an add in a magazine about http://www.shutterfly.com/cards-stationery/christmas-photo-cards Christmas cards and immediately went to this site. I found a Christmas card I loved almost immediately, uploaded my pictures and had a card ready to order within 10 minutes. How excited was I? I found a few cards that were great, but just were not the right color scheme, didn't allow the right number of pictures, or my husband and I could not agree on. Here are a few of my favorites!

I'm not telling you which one, but one of these cards will be in the mail to you with some sweet little pictures of my darling babies wishing you a Merry Christmas.

2010 Final Home Game

Last Saturday, MSU played Arkansas in Starkville for the final game of the year. Our normal tailgate folks were not able to attend the game, but we have some others join us for a fun afternoon. Kelly, Noah, Kimberly, Tim, and Lyla came to spend the day with us. We had a great time seeing everyone even if Tim is an Arkansas fan. We even got Noah to ring a cowbell and Julia had already taught him to say, "who let the dawgs out?" Christy Kent and her sweet kids and mom dropped by the tailgate as well.

The game was great, but ended with the wrong team on top. After two overtimes, Arkansas won by a touchdown.

We had a great fall spending the Satrudays in Starkville. We made new friends from the Tupelo area that tailgate beside us and great Bulldogs in the stands that we cannot wait until next year to see again. Julia made a special friend this year. A little old and not to mention that he is married, but he was a doll. Julia brought him an MSU plate to the game on Saturday to say thanks for being so sweet to her this season. We are going to miss not spending our Saturdays in Starkville, but look forward to cheering our bulldogs on in the Egg Bowl Saturday for a win over the Ole Miss teddy bears and then on to bowl time!

State vs. Bama

Trey and I took Jack to the State/Alabama game in Tuscaloosa last weekend. Unfortunately, Alabama won the game! We still had a great time spending the afternoon and evening alone with Jack. We got to Tuscaloosa in time to see the MSU Bulldogs get off their buses as they headed into the stadium. It was a very exciting and yet sombering time all at the same time. As the coaches exited the bus they headed over to the railing and hugged Mrs. Bell. The players all waved and headed into the locker room. As we were leaving that area of the stadium, Jack asked if he could go talk to Ms. Bell. We showed him which one she was and he headed over to her. He waited patiently until she finished talking to some other people. Jack gave her a big hug and told her he was sorry about Nick and that he was praying for her. I just love this little boy. He is so loving and concerned about others. It was a great time to be a bulldog even if we didn't win.

Turkey McPhee

Jack had to decorate a turkey so he would survive Thanksgiving Day. The story behind his turkey was: "I am Turkey Pernell McPhee trying to survive Thanksgiving Day so I can play with my Bulldogs against the Black Bears in Oxford, MS." I sure hope he makes it to the game. I don't know if the Bulldog defense can play without him. GO STATE!!

Julia's Scarecrow

Julia had to decorate a scarecrow. This is her creation.

We had a very eventful Halloween this year after we convinced the kids that it was more fun to go to the MSU game instead of staying in Winfield and trick-or-treating. The fun began on Friday morning with a party at Julia's preschool. She had a great time playing games, getting her face painted, decorating a pumpkin and going on a hayride. Thank goodness Trey was able to go with her so I could get some pictures of her.
Friday after school we headed to Starkville for Pumpkin Palooza. The kids were able to trick-or-treat down town Starkville at all the businesses. While we were downtown, the pep rally for the MSU vs. Kentucky game was going on. The kids were able to see Bully and the MSU cheerleaders. Julia was infatuated with being so close to the cheerleaders. After a fun evening of trick-or-treating, we went for dinner and then headed over to the Hampton Inn for the evening.

Saturday was a great day. We went to campus early to set up the tailgate and then went for breakfast at Waffle House (yummy)! We had to go by the Lodge to get Jack some new fall/winter MSU clothes. Finally we got to campus for the day. We were able to go to the Hump to see the MSU Basketball team scrimage. And then finally it was time for Savannah to go to cheer clinic. This is a special thing for Savannah. She waits on this for the entire football season. She had a blast at the clinic that ended with her cheering at the MSU pep rally before the game and finally cheering at half time of the ball game. Saturday ended wonderfully with the day being wrapped up in Maroon and White with a win over the University of Kentucky Wildcats.

Sunday we had a special day a church. Every 5th Sunday we have lunch after church and then a short service to follow. Savannah was able to take the Lord's Sumpper for the first time. It was a very special time. After a short nap, we got dressed up in our Halloween costumes and went trick-or-treating again.
