Friday Favorites

It's Friday again!! Yahoo!! We are ready for another fun filled holiday weekend.  Does anyone else feel like they are just going through the motions!??!!? Are you just completing all these holiday tasks because they somehow made it onto your "to-do" list? I have really tried to be INTENTIONAL in the things we have done this holiday season. More intentional things and less just going through the motions....and I will say IT FEELS GOOD!!! ( Being honest, I have had my moments but giving myself gracing and knowing where my heart really is. ;))

This might go down as one of my favorite pictures of this holiday season...PURE JOY! We had so much fun making Mix and Match Mama's holiday bark. We also found out Sis isn't a fan of white chocolate either. LOL!!! *Note: No, I didn't dress them alike to bake. It was a Monday and during the advent they can wear green shirts to school. *

Our elf has returned...Mark and I are having so much fun with him. The magic is in full force this year which really helps get the creative juices going. ;)

Something that we have never done before are the lights at AB. My parent's took Mark and I last weekend. It was so fun! We rarely get time just the 4 of us so that was so fun as well!!

Gingerbread house building...I have no shame in my game...this year we built ONE as a family and we totally used a hot glue gun! It's been the best year yet. We had so much fun deciding what to put where and the hot glue gun made it so easy! *WIN*

This past week was CRAZY busy with Christmas stuff at school. Wyatt and Sloane both had their programs at school. Wyatt was a Shepard and even memorized a line for his program!! The cutest Shepard ever!!?!?!? YES!!!! 


  1. Haha, I love that you used a hot glue gun for your gingerbread house! Taking note. We were supposed to make ours last weekend, but we all got a stomach bug and we were lying around feeling sick instead, so it's on the agenda for this weekend!

  2. We totally use a hot glue gun for our gingerbread building...once we did, we never could go back. No more tears when things fell apart! I am trying to be intentional too this Christmas...I have had my moments due to kiddos being sick but trying to give grace when needed. Have a great weekend!

  3. That picture of your littles with the holiday bark is so cute! Definitely a favorite :) Love your Gingerbread house and that you used hot glue!! Now I know the key to getting them to look more put together!

  4. The matching pajamas are too cute! What a great pic. I love that you used a glue gun for your gingerbread house. My kids did ours and that frosting is looking anything but great right about now :) Have a wonderful weekend!


I always love what you'll have to say...thanks for stopping by!
