20 More Sleeps

Hard to believe that Christmas will be here and gone before we know it! I am nearly done my shopping, besides my boys. Online shopping has been seriously awesome this year though! One more trip to the mall, and I will be done ;) Wrapping is my fave!
I have a couple orders to finish up this weekend, superheros :) And I have been adding to my etsy shop every couple of days :) You can check them out here.
My mom always called this the "expensive cheese" when I was a kid. And the only time we had it, was when they ordered cheese trays (normally at Christmas). Because I can... I have been buying these for my kids every week for 10 years now :) And these festive wrappers make them that much better! Seriously, get some :)
Leroy, away from the knives, fit perfectly in the cutlery drawer. My boys are not keen on him. Yet.

I'm going to think about some holidays baking next week. Some faves are of course the Nuts and Bolts, Whipped Shortbread, and these Cookie Bites! This post, has some awesome recipes too!

Spruce Meadows = Christmas Spirit :)

A day trip to Calgary, waiting for my auto start to be put in my truck (yahoo), left us with a free day to shop and tour. - My husband LOVES both. ha  One of my bestest friends was working at Spruce Meadows for the day, so we stopped in to visit. I had no idea this place even existed. But for 3 weekends in Nov / Dec, it turns into Spruce Meadows Christmas Market. It's a HUGE craft sale, full of Christmas goodness :) Definitely puts you in the spirit!
Like these awesome Scottish Singers, who were singing my song :) Bring Back my Bonnie to me :)

I met Dancer and Dasher :)

And the lights and decorations were amazing! So festive, and so pretty. Sherman was a little under the weather (meaning I forgot him at home). But next time he will definitely be coming with us. Check out their website here, to see all the stuff they have going on :)

Sherman & Leroy Day 2

So yesterday, we met Leroy. 

Then this happened .....
Impressive balancing act... but I thought I might find them making crafts, playing lego, eating cheese. Something along those lines.

 I think Sherman is looking pretty proud here, although I am not sure how long he planned on sitting on the gumball machine, or why.
But he is definitely underestimating Leroy.
I think December is going to be interesting, to say the least ;)



 I am going to try my best to keep up with some festive favorties this month, and hopefully make a habit of it :) On the top of my list, Tims festive cups :) I'm not sure if these were around last year, and I just wasn't a coffee drinker, but I love them :) And my hubby loves that I sing "festive cups" everytime we get them! Ha My latest fave is earl grey with 1 cream, 1 sugar :) Reminds me of visiting my gramps, and dunking arrowroots in tea.

 We've added a little mischevious elf to traditions this year :) His name is Leroy, Sherman and him are sure to be BFF's :)

Happy December!
