Welcome everyone! I missed you last week, but if your holiday was like ours, it was nice to have an extra week to link up - too much food to eat and sales to shop to worry about blogging!!
I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving! Ours was lovely - we planned a beach vacation and while it wasn't much warmer than the 70s, it was clear. The sunrises and sunsets on our beach were simply breathtaking. Neal took these pictures on Thanksgiving day of both events.
I hope everyone had a chance to explore everything linked. There were some great things posted! Now that Thanksgiving is over, it's officially time to look towards Christmas, so I'm going to feature a few Christmas themed things:
First is this beautiful Nativity Retablo from Homeschool Coffee Break!
This time of year, I'm always looking for a good deal to stretch the holiday budget. FREE goes a long way to doing just that, and these free Christmas-themed Color-by-Numbers sheets from Super Mommy to the Rescue are perfect for whiling away the time while you're waiting for real gingerbread men to finish in the oven.
Finally, Christmas gifts aren't quite right without wrappings and bows, but that means the Earth can take a pretty big hit. Balance things out with these Eco-friendly Decorations ideas from Makeovers and Motherhood.
I hope you're having a Blessed Advent! Have you put up your tree yet? Are you baking? Please be sure to link up your pins to this week's party - I can't wait to see what you have to share!
