Shutterfly 3 sets of 25 Holiday Giveaway

November 11, 2011

When I was a nanny in Southern California, my last family was one that totally stole my heart. To keep the memories we had made, I gave them a Shutterfly book filled with all the pictures we’d taken over the past year and a half together.

When Bella was born, we used Shutterfly again. That Christmas, we had cards done with her – her tiny toes and hands captured when she was just a month old. Last Christmas we gave Grandpa Shutterfly mugs with pictures of Bella. (Huge, huge hit.) 

For most of the major events since then, Shutterfly has become my go-to place online to share our memories as a family. I honestly love how simple it is to use, how great the prices are, and how the cards/calendars/books are professionally done. They offer things you want to keep on your fridge or coffee table for a lifetime.

So I’m excited to pair up with them this holiday season to give 3 of you 25 cards each. Use them for announcing your new little one, for holiday cards, or to send out a party invitation.

This is an easy giveaway – Rafflecopter has done most of the work for you, so just click if you want extra entries. But for the mandatory one, tell me your favorite holiday memory as a child.

Mine was hearing my little brother at 3 (I was 13) whisper to us 3 older kids on Christmas Eve (we all “slept” in the same room that night) that he could hear Santa’s sleigh. It was birds on the roof but we didn’t tell him. 🙂

Good luck!

    My favorite memory is the year I received a Teddy Ruxpin from Santa. It was the first time I reeeeeeeealy wanted a specific toy and got it!

    I have strong memories of sneaking down the stairs at 4 a.m. to see if Santa had visited, and then waiting two AGONIZING hours till our 6 a.m. “curfew” came and we were allowed to wake my parents. However, the best part of Christmas was getting my parents back – they run a Christmas Tree Farm, and so the weeks leading up to the holiday were always filled with stress and tired parents. And lots of pine needles. On Christmas, they would finally relax!

    We have three kids five and under. For each child when they were babies, we would put them under the Christmas tree with a bow on them then take a picture. They were our favorite present for the year!

    Well I’m Jewish. So you know, we did Hanukkah. It’s not that big of a holiday…people mistake that because it’s always around Christmas. I don’t recall any favorites or special moments, just being together as a family lighting the candles. But now that we also do Christmas since having Abby, I LOVE IT! ALL OF IT! I love the tree and and the lights and seeing Abby open presents. It’s all for Abby these days and I love seeing things through her eyes. And Santa…I love that Abby has no qualms about Santa. She looks at the picture we have up and knows who he is and is psyched to see him again this year. My kid rocks at holidays! And I’m also excited because I think this year Hanukkah will be a ton more interesting for her because she understands so many things.

    My favorite holiday memory was the thanksgiving just after my little brother was released from the Army. He was hours from being back drafted for a third tour as a recon medic in Iraq when we got the word that he was honorably discharged. I was very thankful that year.

    I’d love to win these Shutterfly cards! We’ll be sharing the news this Christmas that we’re expecting in April, combined with our first Christmas card. I’d just love to use Shutterfly!

    My favorite Christmas memory is the year my brother got a model train, and when we woke up that morning it was set up around the tree and running. I thought it was magic.

    My siblings and I (mostly my sister and I because my brother was 10 years younger than us), snuck out early in the morning of Christmas day and got our stockings. My mom put them there for us to do it but I think we thought we were being sneaky. LOL

    My best Christmas memory was the first Christmas of my son. Being only 10 months old, he spent the day playing with the boxes and the wrapping paper. Thankfully, I didn’t buy much more than that. He played all day in front of a fire in the fireplace.

    We get to welcome a new little one just a couple of weeks before Christmas, so I am looking forward to sending out cards with the growing family.

    Now that I’m 4000 or so miles away from all my family, I get very sentimental on this season because I remembered being with my parents and sibilings on the table waiting to have a nice home cooked meal from the best chef “my mom” on every christmas night, in South America we celebrate Christmas on the 24th so we open gifts that same night, it was so magical. I hope one day I can take my little one to be with his grandparents and the rest of my family.

    I remember being about 6 years old, which means my brother was 3. We had a rule in our house at Christmas…no opening presents until 7 am, when the clock said 7:00. Period. So we got up early (like 4 am early) and sat in the kitchen watching the clock change. It was one of those old flip down clocks like the alarm clock in Groundhog Day. We turned a kitchen chair backwards. He sat on the chair and I kneeled behind him. We stared at the clock and he kept asking me “Stacy is it seven-oh-oh yet?” I’d say “No, it’s only four-three-six.” “No, it’s only five-five-two.” That’s my favorite memory.

    My favorite holiday memory is when I was younger and all my cousins and aunts and uncles would gather together and play games and just spend time together. I miss it so much.

    I loved going to the candlelight service on Christmas Eve and singing Silent Night at the end with everyone holding their little candles. It still gives me goosebumps…

    my favorite holiday memory is sitting by the fire on my grandpas lap while he read us ‘the night before christmas!’

    My favorite memory was when I was about 8 or so, still believed in Santa, and woke up on Christmas morning to look out our 2nd floor landing down onto the Christmas tree all lit up and all the presents underneath. I can just remember the color, and being so excited. I love Christmas morning!

    When I was VERY little, my cousin who is about 25 or so years older than me, dressed up as Santa Claus and came into our house while my sister and I were getting ready for bed. I don’t think I will ever be as excited again as I was to see Santa in our living room that night.
