Getting in the Christmas Spirit
I have had so much fun the past few weeks getting in the Christmas Spirit. My fun started with an ornament exchange at my sister-in-law’s house. Of course, no photos were taken. SHOCKER.
My next party was at Jane’s house for the 2nd blogger Christmas party! I love reading and keeping up with these girls and it’s even more fun seeing them in person.
(Thanks, Jackie, for letting me steal your photo!)
I have also hosted a party, been to a bunko Christmas party and I think that is pretty much it. I promise my social calendar is NEVER this packed. I am obviously the worst blogger ever since I didn’t take a picture at a single event.
And before I get more into the Christmas spirit, what could be sweeter than finding your dog enjoying your Christmas décor?
I have had so much fun celebrating with my nieces and nephews, too! My boss was sweet enough to give me a gingerbread house to do with Max and he had so much fun putting it together. His excitement was contagious. It reminds me of how magical Christmas was when I was a kid.
The finished project:
Finley also tried to help! Could she be any cuter??
Her little shirt says “I ♥ Santa.” For some reason I look like I am missing a tooth in this picture. I promise – they are all there!
I can’t leave out Baby Drew. He was having fun, too! (Look at those sweet curls!!)
Also, this weekend, Megan and I went to paint some pottery for a belated birthday gift. Megan passed her CPA a few weeks ago, so it is nice to have my bff back! (And congratulations, of course, to her!)
Megan found the whole experience to be very stressful. I thought it was quote fun! I have also done this before, so I knew not to do anything complicated. Painting is NOT easy.
My new creamer container:
I can’t wait to see it fired and glazed. (Don’t worry, I will for sure bring you an “after.”)
And Megan’s masterpiece:
Oh, also, I came across this fun site where Santa creates a customized message for your kids! My friend Julie told me about it this week and my nephew was beside himself with excitement when he got his message from Santa!
