Looking Forward

I absolutely LOVE this time of year.
And by that I mean, the holidays ;)
The weather is finally cooling down here in AZ
and it's lots of time to spend with our families ;)

That's the best part, 
spending time with the ones that matter most.
I love family time.
Reminiscing about old times,
looking forward to the new times to come.
Feeling the family love and the craziness 
that the holidays bring.

One of the best traditions we do is called 
"the shoe elf".
Now it starts in December
but it's still awesome!
So every night you put out one shoe by your door,
and when you wake up in the morning there's a piece of candy
or little trinket inside!
We use leftover Halloween candy to supply the shoe elf ;)
I cannot WAIT to do this with my own kids ;)

Do you have any fun traditions for the holidays??
And I think I might actually take pictures
of all our family events or at least hopefully ;)


  1. What a fun tradition! That will be so fun to do with your kids! My family does Gingerbread Houses every year and I LOVE it! :] I can't wait to do it with my kids. Although it is a HUGE mess!


Welcome to our adventure!
