♥ Wishing you a Merry Christmas ♥

This week was challenging but fun leading up to Christmas Eve!  I'm so happy and blessed!
Had a great time at my first cookie exchange party, by the way I've managed to lose 3 lbs and keep it off during this holiday season!  The cocktail I'm so happily sippin on in that picture up there is call a "Mistletoe" and I indulge every year, I hope you will try it, so good and so light!
1 tablespoon Chambord black raspberry liqueur
Korbel Brut Champagne
a splash of light cranberry

I want to say thanks to all you blog followers and readers for making my first year of blogging a BLAST!  I'm so glad to be a part of something so rewarding!

The kids made their sleigh's the other day and I thought it was a nice change from the usual gingerbread houses. 

They turned out so cute!

Here's to our tree!! Usually we spend an hour at the tree lot making my husband open every one only to go back to the first one we opened!  This year I decided to go with the first one to give the hubby a break, it looked great until we got it home and realized the trunk was CURVED!! AND the top of the tree isn't holding our star straight, I decided to just leave it.  Its a reminder to me that things won't always be perfect but to remember that I am always blessed no matter what or who tries to bring me down or distract me!

Sorry about the dark pic, it was taken with my phone.

♥ Wishing you all a VERY Merry Christmas ♥
