Happy Holidays

Happy Holidays!

Hard to believe that Christmas is right around the corner!
The kids finish up school today and then have a bunch of stuff going on tomorrow!
This holiday season has been so much fun with all the parties and get to togethers!
We are anxious to get to my brothers for the holiday...we can't wait!

I whipped a couple of presents for coaches and teachers.
While I love gift cards, I love to give something homemade with it!
This year I opted to make a Candy Cane Dip.
Oh my is it super easy and fabulous!
I made a jar topper and then a tag to go with it.
I forgot to take pictures of the Christmas cards... silly me!
I wish each and everyone of you a wonderful holiday season with your family.
I will see you back in 2013!

Day of Silence

While my blog has been silence for a little bit due to the business of the season, there is now a bigger reason for the silence.
I am having trouble wrapping my head around what has happened in Sandy Hook.  My thoughts and prayers go out to all of the families.  I am so fortunate that I get to hugs my kids every night, attend all there sport/school events and do all the little mothering things that must be done, others are not so fortunate.  I count my blessings on a daily basis.
Tuesday, December 18th, there will be a blogger day of silence. We will post the button and that's it. Please try to not post anything else that day if possible.

We are also raising money that will go to an organization in the memory of this tragedy. The organization is called The Newtown Family Youth and Family Services. Here is the official description of the support service we are donating to:

"Newtown Youth and Family Services, Inc. is a licensed, non-profit, mental health clinic and youth services bureau dedicated to helping children and families achieve their highest potential. NYFS provides programs, services, activities, counseling, support groups and education throughout the Greater Newtown area.


Please visit THIS PAGE to make your donation.

We can't imagine how they must be feeling, especially this close to the holidays. We would love for you to spread the word on your own blog, Facebook, Twitter, etc. Let's make a difference and use blogging in a positive way. Thank you in advance for participating.
