Halloween Costumes 2019

They picked well this year!  We decided to let the girls select costumes that made them happy!  So we jumped on Amazon/Target online and let the girls browse and pick what stood out to them.  As an added bonus we let the big sisters select Kensie’s costume, and I am pretty sure she is not thrilled about the head piece.  HaHa – The life of the littlest sister!

2018 Christmas Cards | With Shutterfly

Shutterfly outdid themselves this year with their amazing 2018 Christmas cards selection.

As you know, we are big Shutterfly fans in this house, and once again I was pleasantly surprised with their adorable cards.  Now that we are a family of five, I found that I gravitated towards the card options with more than 4 photo slots, so that I could highlight each of the girls.

This year I found that they really up-ed their game on the total card package.  Not only are their card options fabulous, but their envelope liners and pre-addressed envelopes are so creative and colorful!  I am all about the feeling you get when you pick-up a card out of your mailbox; the happy mail experience starts with the envelope! 2018 Christmas Cards Season is here!

Halloween Costumes 2018

Yet again, this year I decided to let the girls pick costumes that resemble their personalities.  My girls are the epitome of opposites, one is a perfectionist that likes pretty and sparkly things and the other likes to be goofy and silly most of the time.  So their costume choices this year did not come as a surprise to me.

Cute photo ideas with candy corn! Our candy corn photo shoots is a scrumptiously adorable tradition that our family will always remember.

Candy Corn Photo Shoot | Scrumptiously Adorable

When my oldest daughter, Paisley, was 4 months old, I got this crazy idea to take photos of her in a tub of candy corn.  Don’t ask, I have no idea!… But to this day, those photos definitely have a “sweet” spot in my heart.  So of course, I had to reenact this photo-shoot with Payton, when she was 7 months old and yet again for Kensie who is now 6 months old.  Each photo shoot has it’s own personalized touch, and it is so much fun to see their “sweet” personalities shine through.

One thing I learned through the years of doing this photo shoot is that the older the baby, the “sweeter” their sweet tooth!  At 7 months old, Payton already had a desire for all things yummy and we had a heck of a time keeping the candy out of her mouth, where Paisley and Kensie just thought they were surrounded by toys to play with.

Without further ado, enjoy these SCRUMPTIOUSLY ADORABLE photos! Continue Reading

2017 Christmas Cards | Shutterfly

December is here so you know what that means… 2017 Christmas Card Season is upon us.

YAY for Happy Mail! 🙂

This year I decided to order our 2017 Christmas Cards through one of our favorite online stationery companies… Shutterfly!  If you are a regular here at Espresso Ever After you already know how much I adore partnering with Shutterfly and all of their personalized options; they make beautiful and quality goods for all to love! To tell you the truth, this pregnancy has really slowed me down this year and I am so thankful that I can trust Shutterfly with this aspect of the holiday season.  The tired mama in me wanted to skip the photos and the card making, but since Shutterfly was able to help me with the heavy lifting… It was worth it.  Their online program is extremely user-friendly and their options this year are unique and creative.  As usual I loved so many of them, that I had a hard time narrowing down my favorite card styles.

We went with a bright and colorful look for our photos this year, and I knew I wanted to pick a card that offered a happy and cheerful theme.  When I found this 5×7 Gate Fold Card, I knew it was the winner.  It offered multiple text areas, different sized photo slots, 2 types of paper styles and a fun flip-open effect.  Thank you Shutterfly for always bringing a winner!
