12 Days of Christmas Tour of Homes {A Few Favorites}

I know y’all love a good home tour as much as I do, so I thought it would be fun to share a few of my favorites from the 12 Days of Christmas party that kicked off earlier in the week.

That should keep y’all busy for a good long while!!  It’s Saturday night, the littles are fast asleep, and I’m fixing to curl up with a cup of tea and one of Mother’s Christmas books.  There’s truly no place like home for the holidays!

Holiday Happenings

We’ve been partying up a storm this week, what with two class parties, movie days and two parties with my girlfriends!! (I’m not going to be a debbie downer and share the parts of the week that included temporarily losing my purse, showing up late to basketball to find the baby was barefoot, and freaking out at the bus stop when the same child didn’t get off because I forgot he was enrolled in an after school program that day…)

Whit’s class had a FROZEN themed party, of course!!  We started the event reading the Frozen Little Golden Book* while the littles sipped on hot chocolate and ate snowflake cookies.  Afterwards, they rotated through 5 stations: Olaf bean bag toss, Elsa’s Icy Freeze (essentially hot potato but with a “snowball”), Olaf in a Jar craft, Sven paper bag craft and Olaf snack mix to carry home.  At the end they did a book exchange.  It was such a precious morning!

In John’s class we had a snowman themed party that was equally as fun!!  They made Snowman Soup (one to drink and one to take home) and melted snowman cookies, and they played bingo, charades, and roll-a-snowman.  It was a super fun afternoon, made even sweeter knowing how this dear child suffered so at the beginning of the school year.  He’s as happy as a clam now and it was abundantly evident!

In between all of that, I hosted my supper club (we ditched the men and the cooking a while ago so we are really just a ladies wine and gossip club now, I guess) one night…

…and then spent a hysterically fun and festive evening at The Pink Clutch’s holiday soiree.

Both of the littles have movie day today, which they were over the moon excited about, and we are going out to dinner with friends and wrapping gifts tonight.  I do adore the holidays!!!!

PS. The Georgia Crafted holiday box (my precious friend calliespondence is in it!!!!) showed up yesterday and is fabulous!!!!  I’d be remiss if I didn’t plug them as a great last minute holiday gift idea!!!

Musings

We’ve been having a merry go of it this month!!  SOOO many fun things going on AND we’re knocking things off our advent calendar left and right.

We’ve put our hot chocolate station to good use…

While on the topic of Christmas loves, I absolutely adore these Santa sacks from HKL Designs

Speaking of things I can’t get enough of, look how big our baby is...

I made these olive oil and sea salt brownie cookies for my cookie exchange party last week.  They were soooo yummy!!!

We made reindeer food last week to spread all over Daddy-O’s lawn on Christmas Eve (he’ll love that).  Did y’all know that Target doesn’t sell glitter??  what the what???  I absolutely refused to go into Michael’s for it so I bought a silver garland instead and had the littles cut it up.  If you think glitter is the devil to clean up, try ten thousand bits of cut up tinsel garland.  LOL.  Next time I’ll just go to Michael’s.

I’ve got new tartan plaid things listed in the etsy shop.  If only I’d been more on the ball and had these ready for Christmas delivery.

I ordered these two big bows on etsy as well.  They will be darling on my Minnie ears next time we head down to the World!!

A sweet reader sent me these Georgia Tech inspired ornaments for our tree.  At some point I’ll put our full sized GT tree back up in the basement, but for now they are lovely on the tree in the den!

Have I mentioned how much I love the baby’s teacher???  She often sends me precious pics like this of my baby’s day.

The boys ran in the school fun run a few weeks ago on a cold, rainy morning.

We’ve seen a lot of our cousins this month.  Somehow things always end up like this…

I spied this brilliant billboard last week and had to share…
