Check this out! Shutterfly is offering 50 free holiday cards available for bloggers!
Every year since 2006 when Emilia was born we made a photo book for her year in photos. Since I'm not a scrapbooker and I'm not good at printing them (http://www.shutterfly.com/prints) and putting them in an album, this is what I do with the thousand pictures I take during the year. We make a hardback 8x8 album and I usually finish the week of Thanksgiving since there's usually a good offer going on. Like right now you buy 1 album and get the others 50% off.
We always get 3 copies - 1 for my parents, 1 for Chris's parents, and 1 to keep. So this year I'm making 2 books - 1 for Beau (Volume 1) and 1 for Emilia (Volume 5). Granted Beau's is more sparse trying to fill up 20 pages with 3 months of pictures and I added 10 pages for Emilia!
We're also making a Christmas card this year since we can add more than 1 picture.
