Tis the Season

Tis the Season to...

Make homemade Christmas cards.



Get Christmas cards!
             
and hang them with clothes pins on an old shutter I found at Good JuJu.



Wrap presents...

with this really fun vintage ruffled wrapping paper from Anthropologie.  
How is it that everything from Anthro is so unique & fabulous, even the wrapping paper!



Make chocolate covered pretzels...

for our homemade sweets and treats party at work!
I think I went a little overboard on the drizzle. Somehow my entire kitchen was drizzled by the time I was done making these. 



Give...

coats, socks and mittens through Hope City with our small group. The girls had so much fun wrapping socks & coats for Hope City while the guys ventured downtown to give out blankets & minister to homeless folks.   



Take lots of pictures...

with an early model of a Polaroid camera that A gave me as an early Christmas present! Woo hoo! This thing is fun! 



Merry Christmas!

Merry Everything Happy Always



"It is good to be children sometimes, and never better than at Christmas, when its mighty founder was a child himself."
-Charles Dickens 

Last night we decorated the tree, drank hot chocolate with marshmallows & dressed Samson up like a reindeer all while listening to Christmas music at the same time.We ended the night by watching Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory. Overall, we felt like little kids again :) So happy the Christmas cheer is finally here!

Time to Get Cozy


It's starting to get chili outside and time to get cozy. Because Samson has successfully eaten 2 pairs of my warm mittens, I couldn't resist getting these hand knitted gloves at Good JuJu today. 


Dear Winter,
I'm choosing to have a positive attitude about you this year. Bring on the snow!
