Well, I have a couple of gifts, akchully...the first is the above photo of my sweet neighbor's home, taken by my husband the other night. Our neighbors put this display up every year, and since we live SMACK across the street from them, we get to be reminded of the joy this season brings everytime we look out our front windows....I'd say we're lucky to have neighbors like these, wouldn't you?

The next is something I stole from my friend Cindy's blog, Hidden Pond Farm. I truly consider Cindy to be an angel in my life (yes, that's correct : I steal from angels..)...she is so positive and creative and inspiring to me! Anyways, she was given this gift from an angel in HER life, so I thought I'd pass it along to you. Reading this really made my day......(sorry if it's a little bit blurry--it's a copy of a copy of a photo)........
 Am I right?

I'll be back soon with some more Holiday Baking treats for the meantime, my wish is that you are enjoying  this wonderful, joyful time of year!


  1. Yes, you are right! There is always a reason, no coincidence.

    And yes, I am enjoying this Christmas presents purchased yet but all Christmas cards hand made, letter written and photos being printed. Might actually get them in the mail before Christmas! What a concept! And Ms. Olivia Claire, the Christmas Kid, will be home on the 20th. Cannot wait!! Love ya sis!

  2. LOVE that you're making your own cards, sis!

  3. AND that Olivia's going to be home--what a special Christmas you all will have together!
