I plan on being entirely too busy and/or affected by a food-induced coma to be able to post tomorrow, so I figured I would pop in a bit early and wish all you lovely folks a very Merry Christmas.

And leave you with a few shots of what our weekend before Christmas looked like—Instagram-style (I’m obsessed!).


…a gift exchange with our family’s besties (she’s mine, her husband is my husband’s, and their kids are our kids’…it works out quite well), cookie-making, last minute shopping, crafting, “campouts” on the back patio…

It’s been fantastic!

(If you look closely, you’ll see that we even managed to knock everything off last Thursday’s fun to-do list—except the Christmas craft; it got replaced with a rousing round of Mario Kart Wii, which, when you have little boys, is a welcome substitute).

Hope you managed to wedge in a boatload of fun these last few days as well!

Merry CHRISTmas to all, and God bless us, every one!


I love hearing from you guys!
