Ready for the Holidays

I can't believe Thanksgiving is tomorrow...cause you know what that means? Yep, Christmas is right around the corner. I am really excited about the holidays as usual, but moreso this year becuase it means I'm decorating our new house! There are so many options for decorations, but I tend to stick with traditional. Poor Alexa will never know the joys of a blow up Santa in her front yard! Yes, I am THAT mom!

If you're anything like me, you look forward to fall after about the first 2 weeks of summer, so I pulled out fall decor as soon as we moved in. Now after only 2 weeks they will be going back in their boxes, and out comes Christmas. I can't wait to celebrate Christmas in our new home and celebrate all that Jesus has done for us over the past year. Nothing excites me more than sharing my Savior with Alexa in hopes that she will come to appreciate and love him at an early age as well. What better way to do that than with Christmas??

Last night I began work on our new Christmas wreath, and I couldn't be more pleased about the way it turned out! A friend from work helped me with the idea and bow...but I did the rest and wonders never cease because it doesn't look anything like the $7 fake wreath from Big Lots that it started as! I am not typically a fan of Christmas decorations before Thanksgiving, but when my wreath was completed last night it went straight on my front door. I have to admit my craftiness has been a little lacking lately so I was glad it turned out so cute.


This little one, is never lacking in craftiness! She will color, paint, cut anytime you let her. This morning (in an effort for a drama free shower) I setup her easel in the garage. She was really excited about using her paints for the first time. The clean freak in me (that rarely shows it's face) comes out when I think about paint on any flooring surface in this house! So, the garage was the perfect choice! Look at my sweet little artist...and ignore the mess in the background! :) This house is definitely a work in progress, much like the owner!

I'm back...

Ok, this post is going to be super short, but I really don't have much time right now. I just wanted to drop by and say that I'm back and thinking I will try to (once a week maybe) update what is going on in our lives. So much has changed in the past year since I gave up blogging, and I have to admit there are certainly stories I wish I had captured on here. I hope to update later...not sure if it will be today...and tell you what's been going on in our lives!

The most exciting part? Today I am buying a house...closing in less than 3 hours and I am so excited! Pictures later?! Maybe!
