Christmas time! Christmas time! Fa la la la la!!!!
Seriously, how is Christmas this week? It seems like when I was a kid the Christmas season lasted FOREVER and now BOOM I blink and it’s here.
I may be running around like a maniac today tying up a few loose ends before the holidays, but by tomorrow I’m expecting full blown fun time. The hubs and I are staying close this year but we have plans to see my Dad, Brother and my Goddaughters family. It’s going to be a great year.
Even with all the Christmas crazy around there are some things really making me smile lately!
Things I’m Loving Lately 8
Snowman Tree Topper
Yes, if you are counting… this is my third tree. My Mother-in-law sent this crazy awesome snowman tree topper. We just happened to have a third artificial tree stashed away and a TV room that was screaming for more decor, so I put this one together with all the ornaments that just didn’t fit my other theme trees. Honestly this is now my favorite one. It is so cheery and personal.
I included these in my last minute holiday gift guide and now I can’t stop thinking about them. Santa? Do you hear me? 🙂
My Grandmother’s Chocolate Chip Cookies
My Grandmother’s Chocolate Chip Cookies go hand in hand with Christmas. There are always tins of the cookies all around her house around the holidays and my family adores them. I shared the recipe last year but I did a little updating on the recipe this year with a printable form and a new shiny pin.
My Cousin Singing the National Anthem at an NFL Game
I’ve shared on here before about what a great singer my cousin Alex Wunder is, and he did it again. This time he got to sing the National Anthem at a NFL game. He is only in high school. Amazing!
