Hello friends! Welcome to this week’s edition of Welcome Home Saturday, a weekly series where several of my friends and I gather every Saturday on our blogs to share what is inspiring us around the web. Plus, catch a peek into what’s been happening with me lately.

Happenings at Home
Can you believe it is already December 16th?
We have had a full and busy week and weekend full of basketball, dance and fun Christmas parties. I am feeling so blessed and soaking up all of these memories and time together.
Next week will be even more fun especially since my birthday is on the 22nd! Yay! I’ll be 44 ( I had to ask my husband how old I was🤣) The plan is to get a facial, have lunch with the hubs and then have a family game night at our house. I am SO excited because everyone coming is supposed to wear matching pajamas.
Do you have any fun plans? How is your shopping going? I am close to being sone but haven’t wrapped a single thing! yikes…nothing like waiting until the last minute, right?!
Most of all I want to wish you and your family a very Merry Christmas (or Hannukah) from our family! May you feel loved and blessed during this magical time of year.
And I don’t know about you but I am so excited to place our baby Jesus in his manger on Christmas morning! It is one of my all time favorite traditions.
But the angel said to them, “Do not be afraid. I bring you good news that will cause great joy for all the people. Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you; he is the Messiah, the Lord. This will be a sign to you: You will find a baby wrapped in cloths and lying in a manger.”– Luke 2:10-12
This Week On The Blog
If you missed any of my posts from this week you can see them all here!
I had a lot of fun and it was a busy week and now that I look back my posts revolved around a lot of numbers. YOU will see what I mean next! Ha!
Two posts went live on Tuesday first up was a tour of our kitchen and I shared 12 Quick and Easy Christmas Kitchen Decor Ideas!
My second post on Tuesday last week was SO much fun to put together. I shared 25 Christmas Traditions and Activities for Families! I included a majority of our families traditions. When I shared this over on FB I asked your traditions and loved reading them. A few even made me tear up!
Finally, on Thursday I shared 11 Vintage and Thrifty Decor Ideas to Inspire You! This was a fun round up that included posts mostly from my friends. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.
