Our growing post of Christmas cards. Love this...and that I ordered ours in just the nick of time this year!
Christmas cookies. Yum. I used this recipe, and a basic frosting recipe with butter, powdered sugar, vanilla, almond, and milk.
We got this as a gift awhile back, and I love that it's pretty much just made of sugar and cocoa powder, and you add it to milk. Yum. Almost a daily treat for me these days.
My very basic, though happy Christmas mantle. (One nativity is from Africa, the other from Israel.) I saw so many cute ideas on Pinterest of course, then made myself just use what we already had. And yes, I do still plan on sewing our stockings this weekend. ;)
I love that my brother and sister in law used photos I took of them at Thanksgiving this year for their Christmas card!! That was definitely sweet. The background and weather weren't as cooperative as we would have liked, but I loved the practice and that we got some really cute shots! Such a beautiful family!
And of course, sweet Baby Love #2 at 24 weeks!! That belly is sure growing, and this little one is moving in much more noticeable ways, which I love. I can usually identify the body part that's kicking or punching me. Love this stage of pregnancy...and that we will know the gender and can name this sweet one in just 6 days!!! Merry Christmas for sure.
Finally, a super sweet video that the super creative and sweet photographer of Wildflowers Photography recently posted on her Facebook page. I love looking at her amazing sessions and seeing her family through her perspective. I also love her bold love for the Lord! This video brought me to tears, partly because I'm prego, partly because of last week, and partly because Christmas is just special...and I love it through the eyes of children. Enjoy!
