Nothing but busy...

As always, the holiday season has proven to be very, very busy. Charlotte and I have been doing a lot of Christmas shopping, so we have seen our share of busy stores this year already. I definitely prefer to do my shopping online, but for some things, you just can't avoid a store. Every year I am more amazed at how crazy the stores get, and how zoned-in shoppers get while shopping for gifts. It's amusing and scary at the same time.

Our tree is all decorated, and our house is ready for Christmas! Yay!!

On the morning of December 6th, St. Nicholas visited and left Charlotte a wonderful new Gymboree ball in her shoe that she left out for him. If you are not familiar with the celebration and feast day of St. Nicholas, read here: St. Nicholas Day. I have been celebrating this feast day since I was a little girl, and always loved the excitement of finding something in my shoe each year. St. Nicholas is also my Patron Saint, so it has always had a little more meaning for me. I love December 6th and hope that I can pass on that excitement to Charlotte as well.

I am also very, VERY excited to say that through Scentsy, I was able to donate 7 Sasha Bears to the Children's Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP). I am so thankful for all of those who have donated to the cause, and cannot wait for the children to be able to hold these adorable stuffed animals. I am so unbelievably happy that so many others were able to participate and able to give back to the children with me! Thank you so much everyone!

We are eagerly awaiting Christmas, and counting down the last few days until the big day arrives! We have yet to go get our pictures taken with Santa, but it is coming soon. Well, it better, because we are running out of time!! Haha!
