Merry Christmas

I want to wish you and your family a Merry Christmas! As we are in the Christmas season create memories with your loved ones!! Make every moment special, be kind, and reach out to those who may be alone on Christmas! May all that is beautiful, meaningful and brings you joy be yours this holiday season and throughout the coming year!

This year we have 3 of our 4 kids home for Christmas. Our Christmas season traditions include painting ornaments, decorating cookies and the gifting of our gag gift.

I found some beautiful wooden ornaments on Etsy at Little August Ranch. This store has beautiful paintable items for all occasions! I loved the ornaments so much, I ordered some extras (different designs) to paint with a friend! The shop ships super fast too! 10/10 stars for sure.

Here are a few of my favorite cookie recipes!!

We always have a gag gift, that one of our children gets. The family tends to allow flatulence to cause great laughter, so our gag gifts have always been surrounding bathroom humor. This year, the gag gift is nothing less. Normally I have the kids draw a piece of paper from a hat; whoever gets the paper with a star on it gets to open the gift. This year I have set up a scavenger hunt for the gift; I thought it would be fun activity for our kids (although they are all adults, they do still enjoy fun & silly things).

I’ll post an update after Christmas to show the gag gift😉

Just remember to find the beauty in everything! Just open your eyes to see it.

May you all have a white Christmas; once you run out of white, open a bottle of red.
