Christmas Countdown

We are one week away from the big day and Christmas prep has kicked into high gear.

The daily countdown has begun. (The gingerbread house was a Hubby, Belle & Peanut creation from the weekend)

Santa's magic brought snow to the kitchen.

Such a festive touch…makes me smile

And a countdown lunch too (Peanut's will have the same at home).

Number cookie cutter + top piece of bread = countdown sandwich

Love how the strawberry jam makes it Christmas colored

Festively wrapped brownie adds to the party.

This photo is to show the "healthy" items in Belle's lunch: milk, apple & carrots. Anyone who know me, knows I'm a stickler (to put is mildly) for good food. The brownie is a special Holiday treat.

I am starting to get excited…the kids are very into Christmas this year and I can't wait to celebrate the day with them & Hubby. Not to mention this is the first year we will celebrate as a family of 5.
So very blessed we are.  Merry Christmas everyone! 

Oh and just for fun. Here is a quick glimpse of the cookie party decorating that is underway.
"Elf-i-fying" the house is really getting me into the Christmas spirit, which was much needed.
And a huge hug to my sweet Mom who has been traveling all over town to fill the ever-growing list of party must haves!
