Baby it WAS cold outside!!

Hello! I hope everyone had a good Thanksgiving break. I can't believe how quickly these last few days flew by. Did you pull out the Christmas decorations? We did. Be prepared for lots of vintage Christmas decorations and kid-friendly ornament ideas over the next few weeks. This is the one season that my girls spend as much time as I do in my craft room.

It was frigid when we went to get our Christmas tree Friday afternoon. The girls and I finally gave up during the perfect tree hunt and went back to the van to warm up. With the wicked wind chills, it felt like the teens outside. BRRRRRRRRRRR!!!

Our tree is monster sized and Chris wouldn't have it any other way.


Chris even managed to get the tree house decorated.

Doesn't it look cozy?

We've got a busy week ahead...Frederik Meijer Gardens Tuesday night, the Nutcracker ballet Thursday night, an evening alone with the hubby and Michael Buble Friday night (I have a secret crush on Michael) and the Zoo Christmas party on Saturday! Get ready for pictures!

AND LOVE the family pic....gotta get us a tripod one of these days so we can do the same! :) And I can't wait to see all your fun Christmasy crafts.

What a tree! I really wish that our allergies could take a real tree in our household. Yours is truly beautiful, and I think your family photo is Christmas card wonderful!

We have the cold temps here, too. But, it was a beautiful day yesterday.

Have a great week with all those holiday events!
