{Winter Mantel} for January 2013

I don't usually take down my Christmas decorations until after New Years but this year we decided to give my son a little party to celebrate his 16th birthday.  I really needed the room where the tree was so down came the Christmas decor.  This left my mantel pretty bare.   I went searching online for Winter Decor and came across lots of different ideas.  Most of the colors were white, silver, … [Read more...]

Elf on the Shelf Adventures

I'm sharing a few more of our adventures with "Jack" our Elf on the Shelf.  Spencer is REALLY enjoying finding Jack every morning.  Many days Jack will leave Spencer a note of encouragement but other days Jack would forget to leave a note……and mommy would have to fill in.  It's all working out well.     Jack was found doodling in Spencer's notebook.  He even left him a note. Jack enjoys … [Read more...]

Holly Jolly Toppers "on top" of Red Velvet Cupcakes!
