Been a while since I've posted photos from the house but Steph and I (mainly Steph) have worked hard to make our first Christmas in our house feel like a Winter Wonderland.

The close up photo of the presents are wrapped in vintage 1950s wrapping paper that I scored on ebay. I was almost as excited about the gift wrap as I was about the gifts I got her.

Steph is going shopping tomorrow and then getting stuff to make treats and candy for this upcoming week.

"We elves try to stick to the four main food groups: candy, candy canes, candy corns and syrup."

Like everyone, we are going to be busy. We are traveling south tomorrow night "through the seven levels of the Candy Cane forest and through the sea of swirly twirly gum drops" to go hang with Neil & Katie and Jon & Holly. It's going to be a blast.

Then time with family. If I don't get on here this week...have some hot cocoa, watch Elf and have a Merry Christmas!
