Tis the Season...

Christmas is my favorite time of year.  I make sure to decorate right after Thanksgiving so we can enjoy the spirit for as long as possible.  We've been really busy this season with parties and enjoying family and friends.  Here are assortment of things we've been up to...

Ugly Sweater Christmas Night at Downtown Fresno Ice Rink with our great friends Brittany and Michael

Ice Skating Downtown

 I was invited to a super fun 5 Favorite Things Party to kick off the holidays.  My favorite item that I took was 60 second nail polish.  As a mom of a one year old I can't wait for my nails to dry so I love this polish.

Everyone's Favorite Things

Hostess gift- Nail polish and adorable chevron socks

My dear friend Christina had a Secret Santa party that was so much fun.  We played White Elephant to exchange our gifts and we also played Left, Right, Center which is a fun dice game.


I forgot to take a photo of a cute candle gift I made.  You just buy any candle and add this tag to it...

This is our 25 Days of Christmas Countdown.  I did this for Kevin and each night he gets to pull off a card.  Some days it's a reason why I love him, some days it's an activity, and other days it's a cute saying with a corresponding gift.

Here are some pics of Emily in her holiday gear...

Christmas PJ's.  Emily loves to climb so she was very excited when she conquered the ottoman.  It's a coincidence that The Real Housewives was on in the back but I'm thinking this should be my blog cover photo!!! LOL!

Our Christmas Decor...


We celebrated Thanksgiving at the Perry's and then Kevin's sister's later in the day.  We are very blessed with lots of family to share the holiday with.
God has graced us with abundant blessings but some of the things we are most thankful for this year are our health and family.

Turkey Veggie Appetizer I made

Turkey Pops I made for my nieces and nephews

Thanksgiving weekend we always travel to Pismo Beach and go camping.  Traveling with a 1 year old prevented us from camping on the beach so we stayed in a hotel.  We still had lots of fun riding on the dunes and playing in the sand.  The weather was great this year for the first time!!!
Emily loved getting dirty on the beach.
