Christmas Has Arrived!


Nov. 26, 2012

Wow, I can’t believe it’s been almost two months since my last post! I have been so delinquent.

I have a good reason though.

I’m excited to announce that I am pregnant, due Mother’s Day 2013!

So between working full time, doctor’s appointments, selling Hubs Jeep so we could buy a more family-friendly car (much to Hubs chagrin, but he took it pretty well), and preparing for the holidays, you can imagine it’s been a busy time. (Excuses, excuses. I know…..)

But a baby on the way makes Christmas even more special this year. As Hubs and I celebrated Thanksgiving and decked the halls for Christmas, we did it with Baby in mind. We even got an adorable mini-stocking to match ours in honor of the little one.

This also means, as is often the case, Christmas is on a budget this year.

Luckily, we both enjoy crafting Christmas gifts and the elves have already been busy at our house. Unfortunately, it’s too soon to reveal our creations, otherwise it would give away the surprise to those friends and family members who may read this post!

But just to make it fun, I’ve included one of them in this list of my favorite crafty Christmas ideas. Can you guess which ones we did? (So far, four people have received their gifts already, you know who you are, so shhhhh….don’t tell!)
