Merry Christmas!!!

Christmas is t-minus four days away, both kids have been sick and I haven't started wrapping.

I think that's my sign that it's time to take a holiday break and sign off until after Christmas.

But before I go, I thought I would share a little bit of what's been happening "behind the scenes" this past week.

Last weekend started the holiday celebrations with my husbands company Christmas party.  It was the perfect opportunity to trade my paint covered clothes for a cute little dress.  Of course, it also gave me an excuse to go out and buy said dress :)

The best part about the evening (besides getting to spend a kid free night away with my husband) is that my husband works with his best friend who's wife also happens to be one of my best friends.  It's a pretty awesome gig and I am so thankful to have them both in our lives.

The next day we packed up, headed home to our kids and spent the day baking cookies with family.

We made chocolate chip, our traditional Italian cookies and super easy 4 ingredient chocolate crinkle cookies.

The kids also enjoyed decorating gingerbread houses and let's just say I'm much better at building with wood than food.

I plan on spending the next week soaking up every bit of family time and hopefully getting a few projects completed.  You will still be able to find me on Instagram and Facebook since we all know I can't stay away completely :)

From our family to yours, have a very MERRY CHRISTMAS!
