I’ve just completely given up on trying to get everything done in time for Christmas. Then I can enjoy the holiday a little more. I write New Years cards and do Boxing Day baking. Haha! And my Christmas blog post is going out on December 30th this year. That’s just how I roll!!

Since my baking is never done on time…I rely on Christmas scents. And as most of you probably know…I am ADDICTED to Bath and Body Works. Soaps, lotion, candles – you name it! This one is Twisted Peppermint – and it is THE BEST!!
I have seen this movie a million and one times!! And the kids love it…so we watch it over and over. However, this year we watched the Netflix special “The Movies that made us” on Home Alone. And it made it that much more interesting to know some of the behind the scenes tricks.
Every year we come up with a Christmas cocktail. This year it was Jack Frosties. Basically a slushie with a whack of alcohol in it. It was damn good! But strong.
You can’t avoid the Christmas MUSIC!! I am totally loving this Weezer album this holiday.
My hubby picked this up for me just before Christmas. I just love this little Grinch!!
The best part of Christmas…well aside from the family, good foods, fun times, blah blah blah….I just can’t wait to spoil my kitties!! Haha! This little one was TOTALLY into all her new little toys! And then she passed out under the tree.
This one tried out ALL the boxes. Big ones, small ones, flat ones, tall ones…it didn’t matter. But then she was done – and settled down for a nice Christmas nap.

Merry [late] Christmas all!! Of course I’m booking into the New Year for all your family/baby/small event needs. Just drop me a line: info@k-photo.ca

It appears to be that time of year again.  So I guess I will share a few of my Christmas things that make me happy. Smile

Elfing around

I never know what I’ll find dangling from my tree branch!

xmas music

I am absolutely loving this Christmas song by Maroon 5 this year!

xmas bathroom

Always a big joke in our family.  But I even love decorating my bathroom decor!!

Gift of Lights

So excited that the Gift of Lights display has hit Ottawa this year.  It was awesome!!

Office Christmas Party

Nothing better than seeing a good movie I think.

Fresh snow

Fresh snow is always welcomed around this time of year.

xmas baking

I always tend to leave the baking until the last minute.  And this year I decided to try something new.  Not sure how it tastes…but it looks pretty cute!  Haha!

Wishing you all a happy holiday!!

T’is the eve of Christmas eve.  The house is clean…for the moment.  Gifts are wrapped.  Guests are on their way.  And my goal is to not have to enter any sort of shopping establishment for the next few days.  That is my hope anyways!!

One of my favourite things to do in getting ready for the holidays, is a little Christmas crafting.  And the kids just like getting dirty…so it’s a win win!  Haha!

Christmas crafting

It is no secret that I have a small obsession with Bath and Bodyworks.  I seriously get lost in that store just smelling all the new scents.  And the holidays is the WORST for me in trying to pick out what I want my house to smell like.  I went in with ONE item on my list; an air freshener.  I knew which one I wanted and everything.  And then…..I spotted something new.   A light up one!!  And it’s oh so cute!!  Plus, smells pretty nice too. Smile

Christmas scent

December is the time for those holiday tunes!  I love listening to the old classics…as well as discovering new ones.  This particular song by Echosmith is my absolute FAVOURITE song this season.  If you have not heard it…please do.  It’s awesome! Winking smile

Christmas music

And of course, it would not be Christmas, without our annual Gingerbread house.  This year was especially difficult for me…as I like to sort of “guide” the kids into how it should be done.  Haha!  But I let them go to it all on their own this year.  My favourite was the “icicle of death” that had to go over the front door.  Mimicking one we had above our own door for a few days this winter.

Gingerbread house

Holiday movies!!  Can’t forget those!!  Although, there are so many good ones, it’s hard to fit them all in!  But one we NEVER miss out on is Merry Christmas Mr. Bean.  It’s still funny EVERY time I watch it.  Every. Single. Time. Smile

MrBean

And….the Christmas baking.  Which I am not very good at, I admit.  But this year I decided to give the kids the job putting together the cookies and dainties for our various get-togethers.  And it seemed to work.  Everything worked on the first try!  That has NEVER happened.  And the smoke alarm was not set off either!!  Haha!  Smile

Christmas treats

Well…it has been such a wonderful year.  Hope you all have a very Merry Christmas and I hope to see you in 2015! Smile
