We are in full on Christmas mode around here, I can't even believe that Christmas is only a week and a half away?!?!?!?! Seriously, this month has flown by.
Here's a little of what we've been up to...
Billy the elf has been up to his shenanigans again...
St.Nick came and left the girls some pretty cute Christmas jammies and candy.
Emma has been busy doing more calligraphy. I might be biased, but this girl has TALENT!!! The detail on the Grinch's hand is crazy!!
Brad and I decided we needed a signature cocktail to bring to Christmas Eve, a few years ago we made candy cane martinis that were a huge hit, this year we found a drink to make a week in advance so the flavors can blend, I'll let you know how it turns out!
Emma had her swimming banquet last weekend, so fun!
Monday night we had a Christmas party at a local brewery that friends of ours hosted, we had a blast! They had yummy food, games and the BEST cranberry beer!
Tuesday Alayna decided to make her gingerbread house. Lets just say we ended up hot gluing the damn thing... We also made our first batch of Grandma Omi's molasses cookies. They are THE best cookies. And they're almost gone....
My mom and her husband were asked to be Santa and Mrs.Claus at our local health care center (they both volunteer at our local hospital). How adorable do they look??!! And what a wonderful memory they made not only for themselves, but for everyone else who got to visit with them!
Tonight we got around to making some cut out cookies. Honestly, this is my least favorite Christmas tradition. I'm not a big sugar cookie fan, plus they never ever turn out for me. I have tried a bazillion recipes and they just never seem to work. Plus no one eats them, lol. And my kitchen is a holy disaster after.
And lastly, a few pics of our home during the holidays. I loooooooove our house this time of year, it's so cozy!
And my sweet angel, how cute is she??!!
