The girls and I had a great time making our Pretzel Hugs again this year. It has become quite a fun little December tradition in our house. :)
A fun and simple gift for friends and neighbors.
In November my friend Ann threw a “Favorite Things” party. It was so much fun! Each guest was supposed to bring three of the same favorite thing – something we can’t live without – for 10 dollars or less. I chose my Conair 10 dollar curling iron from Target. Definitely something I can’t live without. Love that thing! Anyway, we all shared our favorite thing with the group and why we love it so much and then the shopping began and things got really fun! We went around the room and each chose one favorite we wanted for ourselves – then back around the room again and again until we each had three new favorite things to take home. We also took notes and came home with tons of great gift ideas for Christmas. (Oprah’s got nothing on us!)
But alas, I have to think of the rest of my crew who don’t seem to care for them as much as I do. *sigh*
Finally took pictures of our Christmas decor! Sorry for the picture overload. I just can’t help it. Christmas decorations make me soooo happy. We are really enjoying the coziness of our little home this season.
The only thing missing was something to put on top. I stuck this snowman up there and the girls were so sad because they like to play with him. So – back down he went and our tree is currently topless. He looked a little funny up there anyway… :)
We are SO ready for Santa! I was looking at the post I did last year of my Christmas decor and teared up a bit remembering how we decided on Kole’s name. I’m so grateful for my new little addition to our family this year. A baby’s first Christmas is always a special one. A crazy, exhausting one. But a special one just the same. :)
