We have been super busy around here lately. I don't even think we've had one day since Jake got home on Dec. 7th that we haven't had something to do. Jake and the boys picked out a Christmas tree a few weeks ago and I was just so busy I forgot to blog about it. So, here it is! Our family Christmas tree. It's my most favorite tree ever.
I also finished this adorable snack mat a few days ago. I am totally in love with snowmen and this fabric by Riley Blake just makes me smile. The red and green border and binding fabrics are from another designer. I'm unfortunately not sure who made them as they were in a Christmas scrap bag I purchased eons ago.
What have you been up to lately? I'd say it's a really busy time of year for us, but really, all year is busy for us. The summer is full of picnics, barbeque's, days at the beach, swimming and staying outside until the last possible moment. And lots of gardening and canning. Spring is busy with planting of garden and flowers. Preparing for warmer weather when rain coats aren't necessary. Fall is busy as well with canning and preserving of the last of the gardens bounty and preparing yard and home for colder weather. It's also a busy time for us as we get ready for Harvest and Thanksgiving.
Is the Winter season busier than usual for you all? Or is it just a different kind of busy like it is for us?
I just finished sending out all the boxes of goodies for family Christmas gifts. I'd love to tell you what we included this year but some of the people who are receiving boxes read this blog, so it'll have to be a surprise for awhile yet. However you spend this Christmas season, I wish you peace and lots of cookies.
