Well, it’s started. I am of course over joyed that we get to go and spend time with family in Orange County for Christmas, but there’s a small part of me that is bummed we won’t have our own little Christmas here at home. So we decided to give Samantha her Christmas stocking this morning to have some special family time here at our home. It was so adorable and she really got into everything. Last night I began my Christmas wrapping. Most of the gifts I ordered got sent to my mother-in-laws down in OC so we wouldn’t have to lug everything. So needless to say we’ll be having a wrapping party when we get down there.

 Wrapping has been so fun so far. I ordered black kraft paper and chalk board pens to give it a chalk board affect. I’m loving how they are turning out. Brad and I popped in a movie, I later started wrapping, and even played around with my camera. The last picture is my bad attempt of making heart Bokehs. I need more practice, but I was so excited to actually produce hearts!!!

Well, this weekend we hit the ground running with Christmas festivities. I hope you all have a wonderful Christmas with loved ones and friends. We are so thankful for all God has blessed us with. I am overflowing with gratefulness.

Merry Christmas!

    Great idea to spend some time together celebrating at home with just your little family first. Now, off to have fun with everyone else.

    I really like the look of the black kraft paper for wrapping.

    Have a Merry Christmas! :)
