Our Crazy Christmas

I hope everyone had a blessed, wonderful Christmas! As always, it flew by! We stay on the go Christmas Eve and Christmas day, going back to my hometown of Roxboro to stay at my mom's house, then Christmas with my dad on Christmas Eve, Oyster stew for Christmas Eve dinner with my mom, sis, nephew and grandparents, then we get up Christmas mornin to see what Santa brought...

...then off to Oxford, NC to visit with my in-laws that come from the beach at my sister-in-law's house. This year we met two brand new members of the family - Max and Miles - that my sister-in-law got a week before Christmas! They are soooo adorable!!!

...then, back to Roxboro for Christmas with my mom, sister and her's a silly pic of us in the car while Mike was driving in the horrible rain!

Then we were supposed to come back to Durham to have Christmas dinner with Mike's cousin's, but the little guy was so exhausted, just Mike came back and we stayed in Roxboro for the night. We typically spend the night in our house Christmas night and then turn right back around the day after Christmas and have lunch and spend time with my grandparents, aunts, uncles and cousin! Whew!!! I needed this whole week off just to recover!!!

Baby Shower Inspiration Board: Sweet Little Things

It's been a while since I posted an inspiration board, so when I saw that Angie Harmon's friends threw her a candy-inspired baby shower this weekend, I thought it would be fun to come up with some ideas of what it may have looked like! Yummy!

New Addition to the Family...

Meet the newest member of our extended family, Sporky. Sporky arrived Christmas day and was the one and ONLY thing my 12-year-old nephew wanted for Christmas. I've never held a hedgehog before now and it's not a pleasant experience when they point their spikes out at you, but Sporky started to overcome his shyness as the holidays passed and he's starting to get used to all of the attention. He really is a cutie.

Star Wars Gift Bag Tags

Two years ago, for Walker's Star Wars birthday, I created Yoda tags to attach to the gift bags for the party. Little did I know these bag tags would become so popular on Pinterest!

To date, these tags have been repinned almost 500 times!!!

So I thought since there's so much interest, I'd add them to my Etsy shop. So now, for just $8.00 - you can receive the file electronically and print them for yourself! I jazzed them up a bit with some sliver glitter puff paint on the light saber and some silver ribbon to attach to the dollar store bags. Print as many or as few as you want!

So, if you are planning a Star Wars party, check them out! And may the force be with you!
