I've Been Busy!

I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas!
I have been MIA lately spending some much needed time with family and friends!

Just a few pics of the past week......

We went to Disney to the Mickey's Christmas Party and it was AMAZING! (so bummed that I didn't get many pics, but I am waiting to see what the photo pass has to offer!)

Christmas Eve Gingerbread house decorating...


We went for a rid in the back of the truck on Christmas Eve with my parents to check out Christmas lights and go caroling

And on our trip we SAW SANTA!!!!!!!!!!! The kids were beyond excited!

Christmas morning pics always crack me up!

This is just wrong!!!!!!!!!!!

This cracks me up! Kacey could spend all day playing with her American Girl Dolls!

Love spending Christmas Night with Grammy and Grampy!

We had the Merriest Christmas!

I spend the majority of the day sitting by the Christmas tree reading my new NookColor! I LOVE it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Now if only I could figure out how to get it to clean up all of these new toys my kids got! HMMMM.....

Being a Caring person is an AMAZING quality to have!!!!!!

And we couldn't have been more excited to hear that Kacey was picked to be Student of The Month........for being so Caring and such a Great Friend and Student.

We were invited to a great breakfast at her school this morning to celebrate and watch her get her award!

Such a HUGE Deal!!!

Chad and I couldn't be more proud of the caring kids that we have!
Have a great weekend!

Curtain Dilemma.....SOLVED!

I have lived in my home for almost 4 years.......and these windows drive me nuts!!!!!

I love how they look....and thought they were a great feature....until I realized that I had no idea how to hang curtains over them!

I am finally ready to commit after a LOT of thought!

I found this picture online, and this is exactly how I am going to hang them!!!!!!!! I purchased white rods....white curtains......and I am just waiting for my husband to come home from work and get them up!

I am not sure where I found this picture.......but I am SO grateful for it!
After almost 4 years of being so annoyed with this wall......I will finally have curtains!

Oh Christmas Tree

I purchased this Tree last year and it is super small! It was going to be our 2nd tree and we would get a real one for our living room!
I kind of fell in love with it...and didn't want to add a new one this year!

We don't have a theme.....or a color pattern at all for our tree!

It is an old filled tree! just my style!
(no idea why this is underlined....can't switch it)

Love seeing the the pictures of my kids and all of the handmade ornaments on the tree!

Collin was only a few weeks old in his first Christmas pictures......and it makes me miss having babies around just looking at this! (NOT enough for a 3rd child though....just saying I miss it!)

I have every Swarovski Crystal ornament from the past 8 years! One day I am going to put a small tree together with just those beautiful ornaments! They just glow!

It is sooo fun that Chad and I both grew up with Family trees as well! We both were given all of our childhood ornaments when we got married....and they make me sooo happy!
This was my first Christmas ornament!

I think out of all of the ornaments on our tree.......the paper ornament Chad made with his picture is my FAVORITE!!!!!!!! He is SOOO cute......and I actually knew him at this age! So it just brings back so many wonderful memories!

This is the ornament that I bought this year from Pottery Barn! I just love it!

Our angel is from Germany! I lived in Germany for 4 years growing up......and we had a very similar angel on our tree growing up! I was given this BEAUTIFUL wax angel for our wedding and it is SOO special!
Christmas in Germany is the BEST! Absolutely beautiful and I love that I have a piece of it on our tree!

I hope you all are enjoying all of the many memories and traditions that this season brings!!!!

Advise Please

I don't know what it is about the holidays that gets me in the mood to redo every room in my home! This year is no different!

I have refinished this dry sink and have been moving it from room to room for the past month. This weekend I decided to try it out in my kitchen! I THINK I love it!

We are going to repaint our cabinets white....and add hard wood floors.......and I feel that this piece gives me the motivation to get going on the project!

Let me know.....does it go?!

Proud Mama!!!!!

Last week Kacey had her Christmas Musical!!!!!!

I do believe I have waited since she was born for a school event like this! I love this makes the holidays so much brighter!

She was super excited!

We left before Chad got home....and never remembered to get a picture after of the four of us! That always seems to happen!

That would be my sweet little girl in the back giving "I Love You" signs!

She did a great job and I have watched the video several times since the concert!

Kids make the holidays....and every day SO much brighter!

December 1st

I LOVE December for SOOO many reasons! But today I am excited because I have my whole house decorated already.....and for the first time I am not going to be rushing around to get it done!!!!!!!!!!

Check out the Christmas Cases in my shop to get your home in the Spirit of Christmas!

This last picture is of Kacey.......and the outfit she picked out for school today!
When she came out of her room all dressed I was quickly told that "Today is December 1st......I can FINALLY wear all of my Christmas colors to school!" haha!

I am not sure if I know anyone with as much Christmas Cheer as this little girl!

The Master

I have SOO much going on with orders in my shop and all that comes along with getting ready for Christmas....BUT......that doesn't stop me from working on our home.

I just feel so happy decorating and making all of my ideas become a reality. I am a total planner.....and a bit of a dreamer.

But this weekend.....I became a little bit closer to having our dream bedroom! The walls have been painted a similar blue for a few years....and I just purchased from Ballard Designs a new headboard! I can't wait to get all of the finishing touches done!!!!!

I love this bed!!!!!!!!!!

I love that they have a slipcover available for if I change my mind on the color!
I love that it look so clean and classic!
I love that I know I could have made it.......yet I went for the splurge because I have WAY too much on my plate at the moment!

If Only I could speed up the next four weeks until it is delivered. HMMMM.....


I'm Back!!!!

We have had a crazy busy few weeks!!!!!!!!

Flu that was passed around to each one of parties........visiting family in visiting us for Thanksgiving........celebrating Christmas early with family.........setting the house up........and just spending good quality time with my family!

Here is one week in pics....

Visiting Bubba in Orlando for the afternoon.

I was helping out with Kacey's Kindergarten class for their Thanksgiving Feast. Collin was invited too.....and he LOVED being in Kindergarten. It was soooo cute!!!!!!!!!

I made the entire meal by myself and was SOOO happy with how it all turned out! MMMM!

By the looks of would have thought they made the whole meal! ha!

We even made our own Butter!!!!!

I am thankful for this guy!

We celebrated Christmas early with Chad's mom and grandma....and Kacey got another American Girl doll! She was beyond excited!!!!!!!!!!

Our Elf On The Shelf, Brady, is BACK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I love him!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

My silly little elf's helping us decorated the Christmas Tree!

They had a fun time remembering each ornament! Our tree is filled with ornaments that Chad and I received as kids.....ornaments that each one of us has made over the years (my FAVE is the paper ornament with Chad's 2nd grade picture on it!)......and I love all of the memories that each one holds!

I am pretty sure that Collin hung ALL of the ornaments in one spot! The tree almost fell over! ha!

I LOVE our angel! It is from Germany.....and is just like the one we had when I was little!

Hope your weekend was relaxing.....yet fun filled!
