Happy Monday! I hope you had a great weekend!! I sure did! Honestly, I am just giddy! This time of year makes me insanely happy! Family, gift-giving, parties, baked goodies...ahhhh...I just love it all! With all that in mind, here are four things I am loving right now:
1. My family! :) I know I say how much I love them, but this photo was from last week and we were having the best day! We went to the zoo during the week, no one was really there, the weather was beautiful, and it was a perfect day! Too bad Connor was looking down!...this is perfect though, because I can never seem to get a photo of him. He is always on the move.
2. This tealight snow bell candle holder from Gold Canyon! I went to my first Gold Canyon party this weekend and I think I may have found my new addiction! I cannot wait for my items to arrive, so I can
3. Our filled shoe box that shipped yesterday! Shoe box for what?...Operation Christmas Child, a project of Samaritan's Purse. I don't think I have ever spoken about religion here, but this is just one of the fantastic organizations our church supports. Their mission: "Samaritan's Purse is a nondenominational evangelical Christian organization providing spiritual and physical aid to hurting people around the world." You can read more about Operation Christmas Child, here!
4. I made the cookies I posted about last week!! They were definitely great! I still do not think I have found THE perfect cookie, but this recipe will be kept and used again for sure!
