Friday Favorites-12 DAYS ‘TIL CHRISTMAS

Hey There, Friends!

It is GO TIME around here!  I’m sure you guys are a big flutter of glitter, wrapping paper, and last minute online shopping like me.  We have TWELVE days left until Christmas!  Can you believe that? 

I’m joining my girls, Andrea and Narci, to share some Friday Favorites.
First up, this cutie in Christmas gear is always a FAVORITE.  This year I got a lot of Britty’s seasonal Christmas clothes from Dillard’s.  I know it’s a little late to be grabbing things now, but just remember them for next year.

Another FAVORITE from the week?  When Nixon traveled to Boise with Tab last weekend, they enjoyed a nice dinner out and Nixon is still talking about it.  This Texas boy is all about some steak for dinner.

A sweet, sweet thing the teachers at our elementary school do is carol around the neighborhoods.  They pile in a bus, are decked out in warm clothes, and make stops throughout the night caroling.  It’s one of the reasons those teachers are our FAVORITES!

 We got all bundled up to walk down the street to hear.

This quote is a FAVORITE!
Merry Christmas, Tab!

A FAVORITE from the week…this festive sweater.

In the midst of the crazy, I think us moms often need to remember this.

My FAVORITE four-year-old was being awfully quiet so I asked her what she was doing.  I could hear her scurry around in the kitchen and then a big bang.  Apparently, she was stuffing her face with powdered donuts our elf brought and when I checked on her she tried to cover it up and then slipped.  Bless her.  She had the evidence ALL OVER her face and then was a crying mess because of the fall.  I mean.  That powdered donut face!  Two seconds later she was laughing because she was caught.  She ended up telling me she had EIGHT donuts.  I’m thinking {and hoping} she exaggerated just a bit.

I’m not sure about you, but I tend to panic at the last minute thinking I don’t have enough things for…fill in the blank {mom, dad, father-in-law, etc.} and I end up grabbing a few last minute items to add to other gifts.  In case you’re looking for a little addition gift, these are a few you guys recommended as some of your FAVORITES.

Okay, friends…the last TWELVE days before Christmas!  Let’s make it TWELVE good ones!
