I've been busy prepping for Christmas, as we all have. I chose several "non-mandatory" projects to do for fun, and told myself, if this evokes stress, STOP.
Well I kinda stressed anyway and kinda didn't stop. We had a couple of at home days wherein I was able to get alot done during W's naps.
Snow globes (how-to on Martha Stewart); perfect way to reuse those glass baby food jars:
Pumpkin bread (main criteria: NO NUTS!) Click here for recipe:
Sugar cookies (an integral part of the season):
Wrapping gifts-isn't this vintage paper (estate sale find) the best?
Mug gifts-ordered through WalMart for all of Wilder's grandparents and great-grandparents Already a hit!
Christmas cards-we opted for postcards (less postage), and used a colorful Meg Duerksen photo:
Enjoy yourselves, relax, breathe deeply, and love the Lord who came to us as an infant.
