Do you feel it?
Oh the excitement of the Christmas season is upon us!
Just like every year, the day after Thanksgiving is a Christmas extravaganza in our home.
We blare Christmas music, untangle twinkle lights, and deck the halls!
It truly is a magical time of year.
Also on the list is chopping down our Christmas tree.
So we bundled up and headed into the woods with our favorite people.
I am SO thankful our girls get to grow up with their cousins.
They truly are the best of friends.
(notice all the 'hunter's orange? ' Yesterday was the close of the season)
Warmed up with hot chocolate and apple pie pockets.
And of course found the perfect trees.
I have a crush on this lumber jack
It was the perfect way to start the Christmas season!
So how did you spend your weekend?
Have you started your Christmas shopping?
I realize some of you are smiling with the satisfaction of knowing you are done.
I haven't started, not a single one.
I need to get on it.
If you know me, you know I truly love to make things.
And I equally love to receive a home-made gift.
There is something so special knowing someone thought of you and created something just for you.
I mentioned the other day that my dear friend Alicia is hosting a super fun homemade gift giving series.
You absolutely need to go check it out.
Alicia started the series out by making the sweetest clay ornaments. I can't wait to get the supplies to make them myself.
Yesterday Melissa showed how to sew the cutest little gift bags.
And today I'm showing how to embroider a fun little ornament.
So head on over and check out all the fun!
Merry Christmas season to you!
