I've not been this excited about a Christmas and New Years in some time. This one will be FULL of family, food, 4-wheelers, friends and fun! All my shopping is complete, all sewing is done and we've just got some wrapping and packing to do. Hope your Christmas is full of all things that bring you Joy.
Anyone have any Christmas traditions that you love? We don't have many but I love hearing others!!

These were a little tricky to make but I think they turned out cute! Fortunately none of the recipients read my blog so this shouldn't spoil Christmas:)

I have made a few nursing covers and have them for sale if you're interested for yourself or as a gift to a friend. These are AWESOME to have if you're nursing a baby. They are lightweight, and are made with boning around the neck so you can easily see your baby while nursing and still have your privacy. The apron neck is adjustable for max convenience and coverage. I am selling these for $30 each and have 2 pink and one brown. If you're interested just let me know and we will work out the details!

Anyone wanna guess what these are going to be??
I can't promise any reward for the first correct guesser but then again you never know!

Every year up until now I have worked outside home so I missed baking day. But not this time! Me and "the boss" headed up to Roswell and let the fun begin!
We baked vanilla wafer cake, red velvet cake, strawberry cake, toffee, all kinds of cookies, butterscotch bits, fudge and cranberry bliss bars. Let me tell you they are ALL delicious!!
It was such a fun day. It's not that often that I get to spend the day with the gals. Walker was an angel all day and a great help I'm sampling all the treats too! Now if I can just fin something to wear Saturday...it's the one time I dress up all year!

We had a date at Edgars with Peyton, Mary Glynn and Becky. It was so delicious!
Becky and I did a little shopping-well-all we bought were 44oz cherry limeades and a shirt for Aaron but it was a great time.
I also got to eat my favorite meal at Zoes!! Hummus Salad Plate! We tried Flip Burger for the first time and finished of the evening with none other than Yogurt Mountain!! It was an awesome trip! Thankful to see my dear neighbors and friends that we miss so much!

The pivotal moment in the conference for me was during worship - a moment when 12,000+ people were singing "He loves us, oh how He loves us so..." in that moment we were all singing in one voice to one Savior that gave His life for us. He loves us though we are filthy and undeserving of his love and grace.
He loves us unconditionally when our love for him is conditional, he truly does love us and calls me and you to that same love for Him and others.
I was encouraged by the godly men and women at Catalyst but more than that I was overwhelmed by the presence of a loving Savior.
He loves us
Oh how he loves us so

It's always nice to be at her place because it's all open space! Walker and Aaron went on several walks, shot some hoops, rode in the wagon and played in the yard. Walker even learned that a pink girls basketball can double as a soccer ball! Love my family and am so thankful for the time I can spend with them!
What have you been doing to soak up this sweet weather?

To remember that at 10am 6 ladies of my family and Walker loaded up in the Excursion and headed to Seagrove Beach.
It's currently 8pm EST and we are sitting in a minivan-taxi awaiting the wrecker to pick up the excursion which seemingly has a broken alternator. We haven't had dinner. Haven't seen the beach and I'm not sure that any of us even showered this morning. As I write this Walker is playing a tambourine that the taxi driver gave him...naturally all taxi drivers keep a tambourine on-hand...right?
So who knows what the future holds for our beach trip...I just LAUGH to keep from going crazy!!
