Holiday Randomness

Santa is coming to town!
Just a couple of more days!
We're hosting a Holiday Open House at our home tomorrow night for family and a few friends.
I'm excited about the menu, the drinks and seeing everyone.
I'll try and post about it this next week.
Until then..
A whole lot of random.
IPhone pictures from the past few weeks.
We had a few friends over recently and one the gals brought everything for Christmas Cranberry Martinis.
White cranberry juice, ice, cranberry vodka and triple sec.
Pretty tasty!
 Remember that weekend that I made all that cookie dough and froze it?
Well, I baked two of the batches the other night.
I was a little worried but they turned out perfect.
 I have my sugar cookie dough still in there but plan for my Mom and I to make those on Christmas Eve together.
Should be something fun and festive to do together.
 The munchkins stopped by the other night.
They are too cute for words.
They were amazed at all of our wrapped gifts and were ready to start opening the ones for them!
You have a few more days for that kiddos!
 I received this gorgeous card in the mail yesterday.
It gave me chills.
My friend who got pregnant with twins through IVF, sent it out.
The pictures, the scripture..I love it all.
So happy for them.
I try and live by that scripture these days.
That's pretty much all I have for today.
About to finish my Christmas grocery shopping and then home to clean for family coming to town.

Best verse ever. I need to go back to that one too...

And I love;

Faith is being sure of what you hope for and certain of what you do not see. - Hebrews 11:1

Getting ready to text you!

The Xmas martinis look yummy! We'll have to give them a try this weekend! Btw, people still say "not" these days? Who knew? Happy holidays!
