A Bit of This and That

Well I am listening to Christmas music so I guess the holidays are officially here. LOL. I held out as long as I could but once I get a taste of it I can't help myself. I have had a relaxing weekend and now I am ready for the busy Thanksgiving week ahead. This year I am in charge of pies and salads. We tend to rotate food responsibilities in my family. I love to bake so I am really looking forward it.

For show and tell I have a few new things to share ( a box of holiday goodies for sale, some embellished hatboxes and bottles) and of course some pictures of our trip to Disneyland on Friday. We had so much fun. It was Francesca's first trip and she really enjoyed herself.

I guess that is all for this week. I'm feeling inspired lately so I can't wait to sneak in some time to make new things. Have a wonderful Monday and Happy Thanksgiving!

The family pics are wonderful, the one of the kids with the all day suckers is adorable, those smiles are the best!

Hi Carrie,
I am still glowing with all my wonderful treats that I received from your give-away. I truly treasure them and am so proud of them on my table for all to see. Your little ones are just beautiful and look like they are absolutely delightful. I think I have several versions of the picture in front of Its a Small World (one of my favorite places)...what fun! All of your new items are gorgeous....I love clicking on them to see them close up. Have a blessed Thanksgiving Day!
