4 In Nesting



Nesting on this last weekend before Christmas.

We are officially 1 week away!!! How are you doing with your holiday have-to’s?

I had taken the day off on Friday to get some last minute shopping and wrapping done but the boys had a snow day. So we watched movies, made this snow ice cream and had a hot cocoa bar instead.

So looks like I’ll be wrapping this week while the boy’s are in school 🙂

This weekend we made our annual homemade Irish cream and planned our Christmas menu. We make homemade Irish cream every year to sip on Christmas day and it also makes great gifts! Click here if you’d like the recipe.

I picked up this adorable sled at a local farm store last weekend. Isn’t it so cute? At first I had it by the fireplace but I think I like it better out front. What do you think?

My friend Amy from Amy Sadler Designs shared this gorgeous clay bowl that she made. It would be beautiful to gift to someone for their jewelry.

Do you like white russians? How about eggnog? Then check out this recipe for an eggnog white russian.

This pretty Christmas focaccia bread.

This is a fun Christmas Eve tradition to do with the kids.
