HIGH-FIVE for Friday!!!
Waverly Maye & I are so excited for this one, it kicks off a much-needed vacation with LOTS of fun family time & togetherness. 🙂
With Christmas Eve FOUR days away, there is lots of fun & excitement to share! I could probably change this week to a “fifteen on friday,” but we will stick to the five. 🙂 Here they are …
I love a tradition anytime of year & just like my mom, plan to instill lots with my own family. There is obviously no better time than the holidays!! I’ve mentioned our “elves
” before & now it’s official, they have visited our house each morning since Tuesday. Each day, those sweet little elves leave Waverly Maye a small gift & poem.
They will come until Christmas Eve, when they will bring my girl her brand new holiday PJs to wear that night. So far, it seems that Waverly is interested in anything else besides unwrapping presents this holiday season. Yet I’m hoping this gets her warmed up for the real deal. 🙂
TWO: Homemade Gifts
. Each year, my mom & I look forward to making loads of baked goods for all those special people who make our everyday easier. You know, the mailman, co-workers, neighbors … & this year, Waverly Maye’s teachers!! Since the chocolate-covered pretzels
were such a hit at our house, I decided to go with those. To make them festive & fun, I put them in mason jars, spray-painted the tops red & wrapped with tulle.
Because who doesn’t love a mason jar & tulle combo?! No one I know. 🙂
THREE: Speaking of baking, check out my baking buddy!! I’m sure I have never had a cuter one.
My mom got Waverly this apron from the bins at Target AND me a matching one! Seriously, baking has never been this fun! Or this messy, but it was worth it.
FOUR: Kraft Paper. I am so relieved that our presents have been purchased & wrapped with love in my favorite, kraft paper! I have a total obsession with it & pretty much wrap every present I ever give with it. It can be dressed up with fun ribbons, bows & tags for any occasion or any person you are gifting! I also love the fact that all of the presents under the tree match & have to admit that my OCD personality wouldn’t have it any other way. Anyone with me?!
FIVE: Festive Fashions. With only five days until Christmas, you better bet we are packing as many themed ensembles as possible!
I just love my redhead in red & even better, a chunky necklace that just screams Christmas-time! I can’t wait to share her snazzy little holiday dress we are saving for the big day on Wednesday!!
We wish everyone the HAPPIEST of holidays, from our family to yours! And thanks as always to Darci
& the rest of the ladies for this weekly link-up.
