Friday Favorites




Wow can you believe that it is the weekend of Christmas! I say this every year but the time between Thanksgiving and Christmas goes so fast! There are always so many fun things that I want to do and I really feel like we made the most of this holiday season.

I would say that I am about 98% wrapped, thanks to a very special elf that wrapped for me! I need to hit the grocery tomorrow and then we will be ready to enjoy the holiday weekend! Lots of fun planned and of course tons of family time!

My favorites from this week...

O N E | Is there anything cuter than this..the curly red hair and the monogrammed fanny. I love this sweet boy!


T W O | We love Jacks teachers and wanted to give them something for Christmas. They both love Bath and Body Works candles so I got them each one of the yummy winter scents as well as a gift certificate for a pedicure. We hope that it brought them a little joy and let them know just how much we appreciate them!


T H R E E | I hosted a cookie decorating play date with our friends Hudson and James the other day. The big boys enjoyed decoaring and the little brothers had fun playing, they are finally getting to the age where they can play together..well Graham usually goes right for James eyes but its a start to playing.




 F O U R | Did you catch my post yesterday with the recipe for the cinnamon rolls I've been baking all season. I loved these tags that my friends @olivejuice.dandelions made for me.


F I V E | Probably my most favorite from the week. The picture on the left was taken one year ago. The picture on the right was taken yesterday. They were both sitting in the same spot and their teacher tried to recreate it. I can't get over just how little they were last year. The amount of growing from 2-3 is so much!! Sweet little besties have been friends since they were 6 months old.
S I X | I saw that April posted a tutorial for this felt Christmas tree on her blog yesterday. I happened to be going to Hobby Lobby that morning and picked up the felt and then because I am NOT crafty I did the next best thing..I asked my babysitter who happens to be super crafty to do it! She made the cutest ornaments and Jack has loved playing with it! We have been using it on the floor because I have chair rail all over my downstairs, something I never actually took notice of until now! 



I really hope that you and yours have a very Merry Christmas! It truly is the most wonderful time of the year. I hope you are enjoying it with loved ones both near and far. I know that the season isn't always happy and jolly for all. If you are going through something that is making you sad I pray that you find some peace and are able to still enjoy the holiday season throughout the sadness! 
I can't wait to share a recap of our Christmas morning, I have a feeling this is going to be the best one yet!
