 We're on the downward stretch to Christmas!

Got the Christmas cards sent out today and

finishing all the little details for our first daughter to fly into town.

Funtastic Friday #361

 It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas!

So excited for this time of year.

Can't wait to get our tree up this weekend.

I'm adding more pinks and natural wood elements to the tree this year.

Loving Joy's wood slice ornaments.

She uses a wood burning tool for the designs!

A natural bead garland would look so pretty on the tree

or a smaller size in a tray on your coffee table. 

If you're looking for ornaments the kids can make...

Check out our woodlands ornamentDala horsewood stableS'mores, or photo in glass ball.

Let's get right to all your inspiration for Christmas

Funtastic Friday #360

 Did you hit the stores for some Black Friday shopping

 or are you more of an online shopper?

'Tis the season to start thinking about Christmas

(if you haven't already started)

I haven't done a thing

so I've got to make my list, check it twice

get shopping and fill in our calendar with holiday events!

The Nutcracker ballet was a tradition at our house
growing up and our family has continued it.
We try to attend a performance every few years.
This year we are so excited to be watching it 
 the New York City Ballet perform this Christmas classic!
What a dream.
Brenda's Nutcracker popsicle stick puppets caught my eye.
What a fun project for the kids at home
or if you're hosting any kid holiday parties. 

You can find the 411 on our annual girl's craft party
The Nutcracker puppets would be the perfect craft.
Add some string and make them into ornaments too!

Looking out for all your holiday ideas at this week's party.

Let's go!

Dollar Store Day of the Dead Wreath

 We just love the art and designs associated with Day of the Dead.

This Hispanic tradition is prevalent in our community. 

It begins Oct 31 and ends November 2.

Its a celebration to honor and remember loved ones who have passed on

 and help welcome them to their spirit home. 

I was out at the dollar store and was excited to find a wood sugar skull cut out!

I knew we needed this in our Halloween decor!

Funtastic Friday #353

I'm been surprised not to really find Halloween items in the stores this year.

 Most stores put up a new holiday months in advance, not the case this year.

And one of my favorite stores isn't even carrying Halloween anymore.

Look's like we've got to do a little DIY for this holiday.

We're just into fun Halloween decor here, 

nothing gory or vile.

So we're loving Lisa's cute Frankenstein made from a jar.

Make some of our mad scientist apothecary JARS too
with spooky jar lid toppers 
and printable labels. 

It's time for another link party!
Looking forward to your Halloween ideas!

Funtastic Friday #352

Let's kick off the weekend right,

with the next Funtastic Friday link party!

My husband loves homemade bread-who doesn't?!
I rarely get around to making any but Stacie's soft sandwich bread looks like a recipe we would love.
Inspired to make some homemade bread! 

And try out Kristin's French bread.
or any one of our other bread recipes {here}

Last week was high school Homecoming for us.
Super busy but really fun!
The school hosts a parade in the community 
with different clubs and sports providing the floats.
Some of the elementary and middle school that feed into the HS have floats too.

This year's theme was Hollywood.
Here's the soccer float that our girl's team put together.
Go Lady Cougars!

Let get to the party!
