Saturday Sharefest: December 22

We’re in the home stretch until Christmas, friends!

At our house, we’re just about ready the big day, give or take a few hours of wrapping gifts. The stockings are hung, the snow is softly falling & we’re settling in for a fun-filled holiday with a 3.5-year-old and almost 2-year-old. I can’t WAIT!

How are things going there? Fingers crossed for smooth sailing & a joyous holiday with your loved ones! 

Let’s check in with a few of our SITStahs & see how they’re preparing for Christmas this year:

I love the humorous holiday photo tips in this great post from Parenting by Dummies {and I will definitely be keeping these tips in mind for next year!}.

Check out this heartwarming post about a failed first date a long time ago~ and how Jo from Jo, My Gosh! is reminding her deployed fiance about it with a sweet box of daily surprises!

This post is spot-on {at least in my world!}~ take a look at The Dose of Reality’s take on holiday cards: 1…2…3~ Quick, everyone look happy!

And how about an incredibly sweet story about a favorite ornament? Vicki from Vicki’s Blog explains why a little blue church ornament has a very special place in her heart. Precious!

Now it’s your turn!
