I'm sorry for all of the post and how they are not in any kind of order. Here are some pictures of my crafts during the holiday season this year. :)

 Our Christmas tree... same theme as every year but I still love it! I love that it is not the traditional tree.
 We got this Nativity Scene last year in Mexico. Unique things like this create so many special memories.
 A purple wreath... who would have guessed!
 I made two batches of Christmas cookies for various events. This was the first batch. I had to add in my school spirit.

I decided to make my own gift tags this year since I have a handy dandy Cricut. I think they turned out so cute! I love them!


Junior League has kept me pretty busy this year. Our provisional class completed a Trim-A-Tree project for the Forsyth Gallery. Our tree's theme was "Stuff the Bus", which is our signature project. All of the school supplies on the tree were donated to Stuff the Bus, which will provide a head start on next year's collection. Stuff the Bus provides school supplies to 15,000 students in Bryan and College Station. Below are some pictures.

 I made the little paper buses on my Cricut. Another JL member made the banner on her Cricut. If you don't have a Cricut yet and you are crafty... get one!

Christmas Vacation!!

I'm stoked that Christmas Vacation is here! Brad and I are packing up and heading to Florida tomorrow for a few weeks. We are very excited to see our family! I'll do my best to remember our blog and update you on our trip. Hopefully I will have a ton of pictures to share with you also. :)

Here is our tentative schedule:

Tuesday: DRIVE!!
Wednesday: arrive in Kissimmee, Florida and stay there until Friday
Friday-Monday: Clermont
Tuesday: Jacksonville
Sunday: Head home

We are going to do a lot of driving but it will be worth it to see our family.
We hope you all have a fabulous holiday and enjoy time with those you love.
