That Time I Shamelessly Fought For A Snuggie {InstaFriday}

My tree may not be found on the cover of a magazine...but it is covered with ornaments that are either made by my kids or purchased on a family trip. Not a single decorative ball. It's a tree full of memories...and I love it. #christmas #traditions

Our tree is up and I am in love.

Our prettiest tree yet I think.

I love my tree most because there isn't a decorative ball on it.

Only ornaments my kids have made over the years and souvenir ornaments we have picked up while visiting new places over the years.

The teenager does the honors of hanging the angel. He made it in 1st grade. I'm not getting emotional or anything. #traditions #christmas #passthetissuesplease

The teenager had the honors of placing the angel on the top.

He made that angel in Kindergarten.

This thought depressed me a bit.

I may or may not be armed with my very own tube of frosting. And I may or may not be squirting it on each bite I take. #confessions

So I self-medicated with my very own tube of frosting and a plate full of sugar cookies.

Happy birthday to my little sister. Spent the evening in Nashville doing random acts of kindness. #bdayproject @bdayproject

My little sister turned 27 last week.

Which means I'm getting old.

I may need another bag of frosting.

Chocolate Raspberry Ganache. Happy Birthday to my mom!!!!

My mom's birthday was the very next day.

I celebrated their special day by eating my weight in this cake.

Layers of chocolate and raspberry Ganache.

Layer upon layer of...Chocolate. Raspberry. Ganache.

Keiko says Merry Christmas!!!

I'm pretty sure she was humiliated.

And that she hates me.

Cappuccino. #warminup

If you've never had an Italian Cappuccino from Olive yourself a favor...get one.

Finally. One Dirty Santa later and I have a Snuggie.

My husband had his Christmas party for his employees this week.

One Dirty Santa later and I had myself a Snuggie.

Did not even care if it was High School mascot blue.

Or that I stole it from a lady in her 60's.

I have no idea how I do not already own a Snuggie...or two or three.

Wearing it as I type.

Christmas crafts last day of tutorials. #homeschool

This was our last week at Tutorial.

The day was filled with Drama skits and Music class performances.

And Maggie's favorite...crafts!

Not sure which I love most. Her craft or her snowflake manicure. #homeschool

Christmas crafts. #homeschool #tutorial

That is how they celebrated the close of another Homeschool semester.

This is how I celebrate the end of another semester of homeschooling. #homeschool

This is how I celebrated.

Come to this {tired, ready for a break, checked out mentally at Thanksgiving} homeschool momma.

Woke up to these on my kitchen counter and instructions to stay out of a certain room in house. Can only mean one girl is cooking up a canvas for her momma. Momma likes. #iseeturquoisepaint

When I find these, it can only mean one thing.

My girl is cooking up a canvas.

Is that turquoise paint I see on there?!?!

Just found this packaged cooler on my front porch. Oh my. Thank you Aunt Dorothy!!!

I found this on my front porch this week.

And I did not win it on Regis and Kelly.

Thank you Aunt Darth!!!

I'm in love. Can't wait to show you how I plan to use this. :)

I was having coffee one morning and looked outside at an old ladder laying in my yard.

I believe it was to a once used treehouse.

In a moment of genius {don't pass out} I had an idea for this ladder.

I grabbed a can of primer and a can of turquoise paint and you will see the results when I link up to Nester's Christmas Tour of Homes.

I am late to the party I know.

It has been cloudy, rainy, and gloomy here all week. Think Seattle.

Not the way I want to take pictures of my Christmas lovelies.

Better late than never though. :-)
