so close

My littlest guy can hardly stand it any longer. He asks me ten times a day is Santa coming tonight? Tomorrow? How many more days? He helped me write out all the gift tags. I LOVE the cute "R" and "P's" Yes, target time to make tags for my family! I could have this week, but I am out of gas. If I can finish our cards and get them out tomorrow I will be thrilled.

perfect for little boys

the boys are out of school for 17 is day one and they are going batty! It's cold and rainy not a good combination for three active little guys. I stumbled upon this wonderful idea on TRAIL of INSPIRATION Lulu Dekwiatkowski's blog. LOVE it. Simple and meaningful. Just the way I like to decorate. Plus the PERFECT activity for boys, gather sticks and rubber band them together. I might have to decorate an entire tree with these crosses.

I need a little help! I hung my wreath upside looks more like a 5 then an S and the tree needs some more lights!...and decorations. But the boys are excited and that's all that matters! 
I'll take more pics as soon as I get my act together. Did you see our elf on the shelf? He's eating pretzels.
