Five on Friday!

Happy Friday, everyone!

I hope you all had a great week. It’s been a week full of Christmas cheer on our end. Can you believe Christmas is only 11 days away?!

ONE: Everlee went with her grandma and grandpa and a whole bunch of family to go cut down a Christmas tree. I am sad we weren’t there but so happy she got to experience it with someone. I’m so obsessed with her. Could she be any cuter!?

TWO: Shae and I decorated our Christmas tree this weekend and it will probably be the last time we ever decorate our tree alone ever again. We didn’t get a real tree this Christmas because Shae will be on leave for two weeks and it will basically be unwatered and sitting in our house that entire time. So mom let us borrow a fake tree she got from her mom. I am more of a white colored lights person, but I love the Christmas vibe it gives the house anyway!

THREE: I drove down to Oregon on Monday to be reunited with my girl at my moms house. She was so happy to see me! It made my entire year. I missed her so, so much. Here she is taking a bath in the sink because we had spaghetti for dinner and she made a giant mess. I missed that sweet smile so much!

FOUR: Our annual Christmas pajama party is tomorrow and we play lots of Bingo! So I bought the supplies to make a DIY Christmas prize/gift for five of the games. I will be making a post on it soon, but here is the finished product. These are seriously so easy, fun and inexpensive to put together!

FIVE: Today starts the 12 days of Christmas gift exchange I am doing with a roundup of bloggers! I got partnered with a sweet girl named McKenzie and this is the gift I opened this morning. It is a shadow box calendar and I am so excited to have this on my desk for the new year! It is so cute! I will be doing a blog post at the end of the 12 Days of Christmas (so be on the lookout for that) but I wanted to share with you Day 1! Also, you can go check out McKenzie’s blog here!
