Friday Favorites - Christmas Things

Friday, December 19, 2014

Oh hey... it's Friday and Christmas is next week.... say whaaaaat??? How did this happen??? My last couple of Christmases were kind of weird and odd in that we were making new traditions and it felt well... new and weird. But we seemed to have settled in and it truly has become new normal. This is the first year I can say I am thoroughly enjoying the season. I even sent out cards which I have not done in 2 years. It  is weird  this good happy Christmas feeling, given my current situation but still... it's so nice. Any way lets's get to a few favorites!!! Linking up with some of my favorite pretties in Blogland ... 
Amanda, Karli and Amy


By far one of my favorite Christmas things... all the cookies. 


They get so excited and it's contagious. My daughter and her BFF wore matching pajamas to school today for Polar Express Day. 


I am a comfort food junkie and casseroles are a staple in the cold-ish winter months. Made one of my faves this week just like my Mom used to make. Tuna Casserole in puff pastry shells. Yum. My kids love this one.

Creepy Santa Memes

Come on, don't pretend you've never encountered a "Santa" with a lil bit of a creepster vibe.

Creative Gingerbread Houses

This one an homage to my home town Detroit. Nailed it.

Cheers Lovers! Have a great weekend and don't get too eggnog drunk:)
