Oh What Fun!

We are SO SO SO excited about Christmas this year! Gavin definitely understands what is going on and is really getting into it all! This is our second time to do elf on the shelf but it is much more fun this year! Oh and he named it, "Fox the Elf"....maybe we can vote on a new name next year?hah. Our advent calendar is also keeping us busy with festive little activities which I will share more about later! 

I finally had a chance to take some pics of our Christmas decor! This is our first time to decorate in this house and it was so much fun!  
We had to decorate Gavin's playroom first:

Loving the colorful felt balls this season!
this reindeer/wreath was one of our advent craft activities ;)

 Gavin's tree is pink, red and silver...(aka my college Christmas tree) He is totally ok with it though. The kid loves pink.
This is our Advent Calendar..
which he will NOT let me forget about!

The little blue truck ornament his picked this year.

 My sister made this amazing chalk art for me in like 5 mins...so wish I had her lettering talent!

LOVE having a place for my Christmas dishes this year!
send me Christmas cards! ;)

My favorite wall! 

 this is our office (aka my mail room) It's at the front of our house though so I wanted to make it a little festive!

I was SO excited to be able to decorate the staircase!   
We made it through the ice storm. So thankful we already had our lights up! 
Happy Holidays Friends!

My new job :)

We had our first booth at The Dallas Flea a couple of weeks ago and it was SOOO much fun! Steph and I are already looking for another fun show to work. We were in our element! It was a ton of work but totally worth it ;) We may or may not have stayed up the entire night before getting everything together! Sleep? Ain't nobody got time for that!! haha, just kidding I think I am STILL recovering from that weekend!  I definitely couldn't have done it without my mom and sister's help! Here are some pics I took so I will remember for next time!

So excited to get to use all of Steph & Johnny's neon wedding stuff again!! 
It's amazing what we were able to fit into a 6 ft by 6 ft space!

A lot of people have been asking how Etsy is going. I have to admit I was very hesitant about selling through ETSY because it is just saturated with baby stuff but I am SO glad I gave it a shot! We just celebrated our 100th sale in 3 months so we are feeling very blessed!  I am loving my new job and being able to help out a little financially. It's keeping me the perfect amount of busy so I still get my Gavin time! THANK YOU, THANK YOU to everyone who has encouraged and supported the start of this little business... and there are lots of you ;)

Let the Wild Rumpus Start

It was such a fun Halloween this year because Gavin really understood what was going on! He is obsessed with the book, "Where The Wild Things Are" so I had been thinking about a Max costume for a while. So when I found this crown...

...obviously, we had to have it!! You must check out this ETSY shop! Adorable customized crowns and party hats for birthdays!
I love doing costumes that incorporate items we will actually wear again. So, really the only thing costume specific is the crown, tail and treat bag. It also keeps things somewhat original which I love ;)
Gavin was so excited to get his crown in the mail but when he opened it up he tossed it aside and acted scared of it. The only thing I could figure out was that he didn't like the fur on the crown.  Anyways, he refused to wear it AT ALL prior to Halloween. We spent the week talking about how fun it would be to dress up like Max but I was 100% convinced that he would NOT wear that crown! It's pretty much a Halloween miracle that not only did he wear it for pictures but kept it on most of the night! 

We went to the Prestonwood Fall Festival again this year and it was so much fun! They had food trucks, games, bounce houses, a petting zoo and live music. 

He was excited!
 little ham...

We met up with the Rifes and Hucks and their little cuties!

Gavin was really into the games this year. He loved tee ball, the stroller race, golf and knocking down the cup towers. 

I wish we would have made it back in time to go trick or treating because our neighborhood seemed to really get into it.... and we just didn't get enough candy ;)  
Maybe next year...
