Love the Moment Challenge December: All About Christmas

I have done a Love the Moment Challenge every month this year! You can check them all out here: Love the Moment. This month’s challenge is all about Christmas, and our family will be following a Christmas Advent Calendar.

Christmas Madness

I love the Christmas month. However, I have to admit things are pretty mad here. There are breakups every where I look, and I have so much to do before Christmas Day! Why, oh why then, do I dive into projects with little, or no preparation?  It an odd mystery, but perhaps it’s because I love the challenge of thinking outside the box.  There are plenty of disasters, I can tell you, but there are also rare moments of brilliance. Alas, making a Gingerbread House WAS NOT one of my brilliant moments. However, I’m pleased to announce — after making an epic mess — we have a house!

{I carefully positioned the camera to hide many of the dodgy bits — HA!}
