For me, the days leading up to Christmas are always spent caught up in the hustle and bustle of holiday shopping. I’ll have you know I finished ALL my shopping yesterday with 3 days to spare. It’s a record you guys. Hallelujah. Certainly I’ll be back for more…I never know how to be DONE when it comes to gift buying.

We are winding things down for a week of rest. In the past week, we’ve crammed in all things Christmas. Holiday sing alongs and Polar Express parties at preschool, cookie baking and way too many sweets, shopping, visits to Santa, gingerbread house building, time with family, and reflection.


One of my favorite traditions… a Wintersteen Farms wreath straight from Oregon. Your senses will thank you.




We are packing up and headed north to Oregon right after Christmas for a winter wonderland. Landyn’s first vacation will be in the books. A road trip to Oregon with a four year old. I must be getting brave.

Christmas is near.

I’m swooning over these festive numbers over at Groopdealz. They would both be a gorgeous addition to your holiday ensemble.

    I am not ready for Christmas. I have a terrible cold and cough so I am not looking forward to everyone coming to our house tonight. We will get through it all and it will be a great evening. Please be safe in your travels. Merry Christmas and a safe Happy New Year!

    God Bless!
