all in a row

Okay... we now have our stockings hung by the chimney with care! We are ready for all the fun & fabulous Christmas flair!

Oh... to keep in the front of my mind the TRUE... REAL... reason for this awesome time of year!

The snow is falling from the sky again today! It is soooooo pretty! As I drove Campbell to school I couldn't help but smile in shear delight... like a giddy little girl! I think it is fun! Now... I think I need to get serious about getting some winter boots!

Is there any one out there DONE with your Christmas shopping... ALL the way done? I was just telling my friend Sophi that I thought I only had about 10% left... that 10% is quickly growing into MORE... oh yes and then... MORE! The good thing... I love to pick out gifts! It is that fine line I am standing on... between almost done & DONE! You know what I mean?

Cheers to another day! Jingle bells! Jingle bells!

I love the stockings! You really do have a magic touch with design and color. I can't get over just how creative you are.

Snow boots seem like they might be a good thing for you and your new locale - maybe someone will buy you some for Christmas :)

Oh man - I'm not nearly done - but I too love picking out gifts!

Are the girls just so excited to be in CO for this Christmas season? I bet this will be one to go down in history. I'm so excited for you guys

I am SO behind on my blog reading and you've been busy blogging away. I LOVED reading your tag post and those stockings are gorgeous. I still can't get over that view. Amazing! And the reason I broke my blog reading streak is because Kim from Today's Creative Blog had emailed me about something and I happened to look at her blog and saw that she'd featured your blog today. Congratulations and SO deserved. In fact I don't know how she narrowed down which photos/projects to include from all your creativity and style. :)

Oh, and I haven't even STARTED my Christmas shopping OR making the gifts that I plan to make. Hoping to have a whole weekend to spend doing that the weekend before christmas. If I finish up any earlier than that I can't resist making the recipients open their gifts earlier and I end up having to get more. And you'd be surprised how dead the malls are on Christmas Eve and the sales are as good as the black friday sales. :)

Just in case I don't get a chance to drop by again before then I wish you a very Merry Merry Christmas!! Jingle Bells! Jingle Bells to you! :)
