So there is this website called Pinterest. I don’t know if you’ve heard of it, but it’s kind of awesome. Today I opened up my Pinterest home page and within 20 seconds I found 6 ways to hang my stockings, 13 teacher gift ideas, how to write my name in candy canes and 7 ways to make home made fudge.

Alright friends. We only have 29 days til Christmas! 29 days!!! Do you do the Elf on the Shelf every year? We just started last year and my kids LOVE it!

Operation Christmas Child – Holiday Traditions

Untitled-5

Each year, as we’re decking the halls, we try to find a few ways to serve and give to others around us. I want my children to be awesome adults who care deeply about others and always want to help, so I’ve got to put them to work now! This year I heard about Operation Christmas Child. Apparently it’s been around for almost 20 years, so I can’t believe I am just now hearing about…
