Friday Favorites: December 16

Can you believe Christmas Eve is a week from tomorrow?  I’m wishing I felt a little more prepared, how about you?  I’ve had a few moments (hours…days) of feeling overwhelmed, but I think I’m back on track and in better spirits.  The shift in attitude has helped me enjoy more of what’s going on this week.  Here are a few of my favorites.

  • We ditched another responsibility, ate dinner in the living room and watched one of our favorite Christmas movies, The Muppet Christmas Carol.
  • Yesterday’s thoughtful gifts.
  • We finally finished reading Science Fair and had our family book club.
  • We created some Christmas thumbprint art.
  • It’s party time, check out my Classroom Christmas Party plan at Arizona Mama.  These ideas would work for most Christmas gatherings.

Other bloggers are having a blast too.  Here are some awesome posts I found.

  • I love fudge and this Rocky Road version from Chef in Training sounds delicious!
  • Celebrations at Home’s Egg Nog Punch would be a great addition to a holiday gathering.
  • Got Sketch continues their Twelve Days of Christmas with 2 scrapbook sketches.
  • I {heart} Naptime shared some free printables to help you with your last minute gift giving.  Last week, I used one for gifts for a few ladies from church from Chocolate on my Cranium.

What’s been your favorite this week?
