Christmas Count Down: Bring on the Festivities

imageHappy Monday!!

Well, it’s Christmas week!

And there are only 4 days to go until Christmas!!

And the festivities are in full swing 🙂 I think that may be why December is just flying by! I can’t believe how quickly this season has gone!

Of course my Elf on the Shelf has been sneaking in the last few dates and treats before Christmas!!

My husband and I have been powering through Christmas Cards… I think next year we are going to start this process earlier!!

… And of course there has been baking…

… and more baking… and even some cookie decorating…YUM!

Look at those cute little fingers, getting ready to cookie decorate!! My nephew loved this, especially the taste testing part!!

I even started packing for our trip out to Saskatchewan for Christmas. I am the slowest packer there is, so getting the packing process started this past weekend is a much better idea than staying up past midnight on the 23rd! image

With all the glitter, fun, excitement, and busyness, I love quiet evenings with my husband where we can rest, watch the tree lights, and be reminded that this advent season is about the wonder, excitement, and celebration of the birth of Jesus Christ.

Merry Christmas!!
