Christmas is Upon Us!

It was Levi's Birthday, then Fall Day, the we decided to move, then Halloween snuck up on me, and now my sister in law is inviting me to pin to her Thanksgiving board for our celebration next weekend.

What the heck?  I was still looking for a spot in my calendar to squeeze in one more visit to the public pool and bam, Target is in full-fledged Christmas mode and Levi is telling me, "I want a Christmas Tree."

I say bring it on.  In fact, I told Herb since we're unpacking anyway, let's just throw up the tree while we're at it.  He said no.

Last weekend my bro suggested a field trip to a local beautiful spot to take Christmas card photos (can't share them yet).  At least someone is on the ball.  So now I'm perusing Christmas Cards and feeling somewhat ahead of the curve ball for once.

In fact, if you've started down that rabbit trail too, and haven't decided on a certain card - I have a giveaway!!  Shutterfly is offering one of my readers $50 off a $50 or more purchase!  You just have to pay the tax and shipping on the goods.  And if you don't win the $50, you can check out their Special Offers page.  And if you don't need $50, you can win it and share it with a friend, too!

If you'd like to win $50 towards some Shutterfly goodness, leave a comment with a line from your favorite Christmas Carol.  I'll pick a winner on Sunday, November 18.   Only one entry per person.  And - you don't even have to be a "follower" of My Hope Fulfilled to win!

In the meantime, here are some of my favorites - which one is your favorite?

Love the vintage look of this one!!

Could this little girl be any cuter?  Black and white with bright accents, I think yes.

It's A Wonderful Life is Herb's favorite movie - so this would be fun.

This one says it all.

Aqua, red, and retro - my greatest weakness.

  1. "Truly He taught us to love one another. His law is love, and His gospel is peace." - O Holy Night

  2. Thank you, Michelle, for your blog!

    "I wonder as I wander out under the sky
    How Jesus the Savior did come for to die
    For poor on'ry people like you and like I
    I wonder as I wander out under the sky."

  3. I like them all (Shutterfly is terrible for my indecisiveness!), but I'd pick the one that says "Blessed" because I like to hang the cards on the fridge all year, and while it has a great Christmas feel, it isn't overtly so. Michelle, you rock!

  4. Fall on your knees! Oh, hear the angel voices!
    Oh night divine, the night Christ was born.

    That line gets me every time.

  5. I love the second one!

    My favorite line?
    "Truly He taught us to love one another, His law is love and His gospel is peace."

  7. "Sleep in heavenly peace, sleep in heavenly peace."

  8. Silent night. Holy night.
    All is calm. All is bright.

    Not actually my favorite, but ... I spent hours upon hours singing that song to She-Who-Must-Not-Be-Named, when she wouldn't stop fussing in the middle of the night!

  9. After giving this question much thought, my favorite Christmas lyric is definitely "I still want a hula- hoop" from the Chipmunk's Christmas song :)
