Birthday and Holiday Frenzy…

Today we are celebrating my husband's 29th (not really) birthday.  We have 2 December birthdays in this house to add to the frenzy… We had a great family celebration before we head to NYC without the kids tomorrow to celebrate with friends and do a little shopping and work too.

Here are some snaps for our recent efforts to prepare for a visit from Kris Kringle and honor the birth of Jesus (and me too.)

The yummiest white chocolate cake…

Santa visits…

the tree is finally decorated..

another Santa visit wit optional tiger cub…only in the South.

My favorite Eloise needlepoint ornament…

Our tacky and wonderful Winter white tree..that I love.

My Eloise tree skirt on my white tree…


Baking galore…Christmas Bark..

Wrapping gifts..oddly this is for a teacher…He deserves it!

My FAB peacock wreath…

I am still trying to pull this Christmas together.  I am enjoying the frantic and frenzy, trying to not stress and just enjoy and be thankful for every day and all that it brings.

We are off to party again…tis the season!
