Loving all this baking, decorating and gift wrapping!!!

The most "snow" we've seen all year : )

Our little homeshrine forest

Free mugs from J.Crew made for some awesome teacher gifts at Isabel's school

All the teachers and therapists loved their homemade ornaments!

Getting ready for the children to decorate their gingerbread houses!

Time for some gift wrapping!!! new favorite gift topper!

Homemade glass glitter stars!

Still using some supplies brought back from Italy : )

Merry Christmas!

Along with all these fun festivities happening around the house, we've also been very blessed to have a wonderful parish that had 14 priests come and hear confessions in spiritual preparation for our Lords coming!  We've also been moving Mary and Joseph from room to room as they shelter seek for a place to stay for our Little Lords birth.  It's hard to believe that Christmas is JUST around the corner!!!  I know to some it may seem very last minute, but we just went today to cut down our tree!  Our family usually waits until later in Advent to get our tree as we hold off in anticipation for our Saviors birth. While a great deal has been accomplished in this past week alone, I know that there is still so much to do in these next few days..... guess I'm going to be drinking some strong cappuccinos!  : )
