Good Tidings

So, I just had a little visit from my dear friend, Lexi,  who stopped by to wish me Merry Christmas...

...and to bring by this beautifully wrapped up little bit of scrapbooking cheer.
*post edit: Inside was the new We R Memory Keepers Sew Easy! This was on my Wish List! I was so stoked as it seems to be sold out everywhere (plus I knew my DH Mick (love you honey) wouldn't be buying this for me! lol) This is the little card I had created for her.
It reads, "Dashing through the wish you a very Merry Christmas!"
Since, I didn't have a square envelope laying around, I just hung it over the edge of the paper bag stocking. Inside was a Yankee candle "Christmas Magic" and some of my homemade "Snack Crack."
Lexi broke into some of it before she left. (It definitely has earned it's nickname. Hard to resist delving in for more).

While she was here Boo couldn't resist pulling her downstairs to see his 8.5 hour assemblage of his Christmas present. (Yes, our Christmas falls when it works best for our family schedules-even if it is a bit early). She was particularly fond of the "Owlery." I have to agree, it's my favorite part of the whole castle. But there is lots of "coolness" within it regardless.

I've been wanting to get a pic of this little guy for some time now. This is a vintage Santa and his sleigh candlestick holder (birthday cake size candles fit into each letter of "NOEL." My Grandma K. (God rest her soul) used to have him perched atop her dining room table along with miniature wrapped presents. I have so many fond memories of Christmases at Grandma's, many of which I hope to document soon when I complete my Ali Edward's awesome BPS Class, Yesterday and Today. Anyway, I inherited that Lil Santa when Grandma passed away and I cherish dearly the memories it holds for me.

Mick and Ethan took a little time out today to route out some trails that they want to ski/snowboard on an upcoming winter ski trip. Lots of discussion about the various routes to take to achieve the maximum fun factor.

More later! Happy Holidays!
