Week(s) in Pictures

Every year I think that I will be super good and have everything finished for Christmas months in advance. Every year I am dead wrong.  This time last year? Nuts.  Even though I wasn’t finished months in advance, all presents are wrapped and under the tree.  Woohoo!!
Luckily I’ve instagrammed our crazy weeks all along the way.  Not only is Instagram awesome but there are some seriously great things you can do with the images.   Have you heard of StickyGram? Turn your Instagram pics into magnets! And Postal Pix will print your images in Instagram sizes.  Sweeeet!
