Looking Like Christmas

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas around here! The house is decorated with old favorites and new favorites...

...neighbor gifts are done and waiting to be given...

...Christmas cards are arriving from dear family and friends...

...and we woke up to a beautiful blanket of snow.







It really is the most wonderful time of the year!

It is the most wonderful time!

Looks like Christmas is going on at your house.

Now I did get those same blue little totes at my Target.

The snow is just beautiful- especially since Troy has been home to drive my kids around in it!

Love your Joy blocks- did you make those?

The Bennett Bunch said...

Oh I need to make some of those Joy blocks!!

I love your joy blocks! Elizabeth and I share the middle name "Joy", so we are always keeping our eye out for cute joy ideas!

I love your JOY blocks. We're making some in January for Enrichment that say Frosty.

We got your card the other day! The handmade card is gorgeous. I finally mailed all of ours out today so look for it next week!

Merry Christmas!

You're right! It does look a lot like Christmas. I love this last week, when everything is mostly done, and on can just soak in the joy that is Christmas.

oh, i wish i knew how you get it all done! my christmas cards aren't even started, so . . . ours will be arriving sometime . . . i don't know where the weeks have gone, but my days are not very productive with 2 non-napping kiddos. I would never be able to make the adorable nativity you made (and in one afternoon), but I am so much more envious of the naptime you have each day! you definitely make the most of it!
merry wednesday!

I love the "joy" decoration. So cute. I love this time of year, too...minus the icy, snow covered roads!

Lacey said...

You are so good! I find it difficult to just figure out what I am getting everyone in my family and you already have "Treats" for your neighbors. Man, I wish I was as organized as you are.

I love how the JOY blocks turned out... I'm going to have to make me a little nativity too! Keep the ideas coming. Jen :>

You have the cutest decorations! And I love being able to see our Christmas card on your door :-) When I opened up your card I have to tell you I thought it was one of the most beautiful cards I have ever seen. Just lovely and unique. I feel like I should frame it!

Jandi said...

You are so amazing and never cease to amaze me! Tell me, Superwoman, how do you do it? Your cards were fabulous, as always! We look forward to them every year. Unfortunately, we won't be getting any out this year. We ran out of money and time with this addition. Jer and I vowed to stay away from projects for the next few years. We tired of missing out on our favorite time of year! Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

Such cute decorations and gifts for friends. Not jealous of the snow, though!:)
