For a while there our camera got misplaced. It is now found for which I am very thankful but I just didn't post since I didn't have new pictures to go along with it. :)
As the title implies we are planning a trip, to Pennsylvania to see Charles family! The last time we went up there Caleb was 6 months old so it has been a while. The children are hoping to get to see some snow while we are up there but we'll see. I told them to pray hard since we'll be there the end of Nov/beginning of Dec which isn't the most common time for snow. So if you didn't mind joining us in that "silly" prayer request cause Mercy really wants to build a "towman" as she calls him. ;)
Next on the docket is Christmas Cards! I love sending them out this year but was trying to figure out how I was going to do this when we were on a trip. I had considered gathering supplies to have a work in the car project but then I never seem to get things done well in the car and I have to worry about them getting messed up. So I was very excited when I saw this offer for 50 free cards for Bloggers on not one but 3 blogs I read!
I have used Shutterfly in the past and most recently for having some hard and soft cover books printed. I love the way they turned out. I really, really enjoy sending out picture cards at Christmas. I keep all the photos I receive each year on my fridge so I am excited to send out photo cards again this year thanks to Shutterfly. :)
I am hoping that we will have a photo from our trip that I will be able to use for our cards but since I have no idea what that picture will be I am having a hard time deciding on a design! I have a hard time even when I do know. ;) But these are some ones I was attracted to:
Snowfall Flurry Christmas
Which is interesting because I'm not normally a red person, maybe it's the oval. :)
Snowflake Wishes Noir Holiday
This one was crisp clean and different to me, they also had it in other colors.
So why don't you hop on over and browse around their Christmas cards to see if you see something you like! If I really wanted/could splurge this folded card is absolutely gorgeous. :)

We've made it one month, whoo hoo! ;)
And even in that short month Caleb's reading skills have greatly improved and it is very encouraging.
Charis I have found to be an extreme perfectionist and she doesn't want to try something new if she's thinks she can't do well at it. (I wonder where she got that from?) Her coloring skills have amazed us all as she get down to shading and everything.
Mercy is loud, and busy and trying to keep her occupied during school is a challenge! :D
Julia sleeps for part of school (yay!) but with her shortening morning naps she inevitably wakes before we are done. I have to keep an eye on her as she eats crayons, marker tops and pencil erasers EVERY second I turn around!
School is a very busy time around here. :)
