my friend leslie let me know about this great freebie!

I wanted to let you know that I was at the mall on Tuesday and got a great freebie. I was walking the girls around and we went by the Picture People. A lady asked if I wanted a free picture of the girls, so I made sure there was no charge and took her up on it. I got a free 10x13 picture of the girls and it is so cute. Of course they tempted me with all of the poses, but I didn't have the money for them, so just took my free one.

i would call your local picture people and ask what specials they have right now!

nothing better than free:)
