Some Christmas Miscellany

We kicked off the first of December in our family by setting up the nativity scene. I love that this year Jace is old enough to get excited about everything and understand what we’re doing.

I’ll be back later this week to share some fun family traditions my family had growing up and how I’m continuing them with my own family.

The other day Jace and I went over to our friends’ house and decorated gingerbread houses. Jace decorated a bit, but mostly had fun eating the candy.


After last week’s round up of homemade gift ideas (found HERE), I had fun looking back at other past Christmas posts and thought I’d remind you of a few of them.

Last year I coordinated the crafts for a Christmas Girls Night Out at my church. We had a photo booth (a group of our high school girls that came seen above), cookie decorating, and several craft options.

It was a lot of fun and you can read about what we made as well as find links to the inspirations for our crafts HERE.

Even though we set up our tree a week ago, I have yet to decorate the rest of the house. Looking back at how I decorated last year motivates me to finish things up soon.

Do you have crazy pets or children and worry about keeping your tree up right? I shared in THIS POST how we use weights to keep our tree standing. This tip was even featured in Reader’s Digest last year!




And finally, I can’t wait to make tree breads again this year! THIS POST has been my most viewed/pinned post, which I love because it’s probably one of my most special projects that I do each year.


I did get back into making some clothes for myself this week too! I made a {literally} 2 minute skirt, and 5 minute dress/tunic. I’ll share them as soon as I get pictures taken of them.


Thanks for stopping by!
