Christmas traditions, they're everchanging

Christmas this year will be extra, extra special because this year we have two sweet babies to celebrate Christmas with us. This year I made a GIANT to do list of all the things I wanted to do with my boys. And while we did many of them, like driving to see lights, going to a Christmas village and making a Snowman bank, there are a lot of things that just won't happen. 

That's ok. 


The Mom's Twelve Days of Christmas

Five days folks. That's how long we have until Christmas morning when our children come bounding in the living room in their footed pajamas all wide eyed with wonder. It's a magical time. 

And stressful. There is cooking and cleaning and wrapping and pealing out children off the ceiling. 

But, is it any more stressful than any other day of the year?

Enjoy. And don't forget to subscribe to my YouTube Channel. 


Free Monogram printables perfect for framing 


Yesterday I shared with you the cute way I took photo frames from drab to fab. Well, if you're planning on a DIY Chrstimas and want to add a little something extra to your frames, why not a monogram?

So, I made you these cute monogram printables, free. Just print it out, resize it on the desktop program of your choosing and enjoy. 


From Drab to Fab Upcycled Button Picture Frame  

I just keep having babies and I just keep taking their photos and frankly I have run out of places to put them. I don't mean wall space, I mean frames. 
So I took this $.25 frame and jazzed it up. 

Christmas Blondies with Cinnamon Chips 

I love baking during the holiday season. Who needs candles when you have real life baked goods warming up your kitchen?

Last week I made these super scrumptious, super delicious and super easy Christmas blondies using a cake mix. I love baking from scratch, but they were so good I am not going to complain.
