Merry Christmas + 2014 Winter/Holiday Craft & Recipe Round-up


Hank and I just wanted to wish you all a very Merry Christmas!!

Hank thinks he looks amazing in his reindeer antlers and who am I to disagree.  Unfortunately, I am pretty sure Hank is on the naughty list this year. I think the rest of us have been pretty nice.

I am taking off Christmas Eve night and Christmas Day to spend with my family.  I hope you have a safe and wonderful holiday with those you love.

Below are the Winter Crafts and Recipes I have shared this season on the blog….just in case you need a few last minute ideas!
