So...while we are waiting for the butterflies emerge, I thought I'd share what new annual tradition I am going to do this Holiday season to include my angels. Shutterfly is offering free Holiday cards to bloggers...how cool is that?!?! Their Holiday collection is so amazing too. So, what a PERFECT time to start this. Since my loss I haven't sent out Christmas cards. I think my grief at that time of year is too overwhelming for cheery cards. Do I sign all of our first names without the triplets' names? Do I sign all of our first names including the triplets' names? Or do I just be more vague and just sign them "theMcConathys" to avoid the subject all together? So I was thinking how else could I include them? So this year I will add three butterflies to our cards in memory of Jaxon, Colin and Courtney. I can't wait! They are going to be breath-taking! I think I will add the butterfly to a Christmas ornament similar to this...
As I browsed through all the different designs I found it difficult to choose one because so many are perfect for our family. I think these are my top picks though.
You can see the whole holiday collection HERE.
I was also thinking about their calenders for the grandparents. What a great gift!
You can see them all HERE.
And I am thinking my husband needs a new personalized mug for work with all his children on it. He would absolutely love it!
HERE are some more examples...
If you are a blogger you too can get 50 free cards! If you wish feel free to use the butterfly ornament picture above in it as well ;) . Check out the offer HERE. If you don't have a blog don't worry right now they are having a great sale and all cards are 20% off!
Here is to a peaceful Holiday Season to you all and to all our angels <3.
