Holiday Prep and Weekend Festivities

Hi Everyone! Have you been getting ready for the holidays? We sure have! Operation Christmas is currently underway at our house! We have been busy putting up the lights, trimming the tree, listening to Christmas music and of course baking! I know it may be a tad early but I can't help it! It's extra fun to do with a busy toddler! Below are a few pics from the weekend.

Little man helping decorate

Bought this wreath but I fashioned the gold bow- just tied 3 bows on top of one another- super easy

Love how a decorated tree adds instant coziness to a room!

Snuggles from this guy

He LOVES making Grandpa's famous chocolate chip cookies!

Bought these glitter globes at Pier 1 to add a little sparkle to the front hall

Someone got a new hat (for the slim chance he needs one down here this winter)
Our good friends CSW & CW came to visit!
Fun morning at a Christmas festival after a yummy breakfast at Tiny's

The fire truck was a big hit with JGS

BS popping the champagne to start the day

Here's Tom! I stuffed him this 1 apple, garlic, sage, rosemary, thyme, salt and pepper. On the outside I poured 1 stick of melted butter as well as rosemary, thyme and sage.

Super simple table. Let the food shine!


While we were eating, someone got into my purse and thought my lipstick was chapstick
