Christmas Time Is Here

It is December 1.

That means it is time to tear open the 1st door on your chocolate advent calendar! In our family, it is a tradition. We all have one. The Fab Four and Mama’s are sitting in my kitchen waiting on them to get here this weekend. I failed to give them to Julie last month, so they have to wait until December 4th to open them.
See, One of us buys them on clearance the year before and freezes them. We never know who bought them or whose freezer they are in until it is time to use them. It is a fun little mess we have. Call us cheap, but it works!
Mama always had one for us each year when we were growing up. One year she could not find the chocolate one so we got one with trinket toys. That was so not cool. At least she tried.

December 1 also means it is this sweet little girl’s birthday. This photo is about 4 years old but I just love it. Claire is our cousin Hollye’s daughter. She is the same age as David & Daniel. I spent most of the first year of her life near, or in her home. I became very smitten with her. I love this child a whole lot. She was on my hip when I met Randall for the first time.
Happy 10th Birthday, Claire Allyn! You are making me feel old, child!

Happy December to all of you.
We plan to make it a fun month full of Christmas posts!

Celebrating and decorating with purpose is my favorite thing to do. When I am not filling a tree with ornaments or throwing a birthday party for my golden doodle, I am being mom to a super cool tween son, the wife to a fine blue eyed man and selling real estate. I call northeast Arkansas home and when I am not loving on my people or celebrating in our space, I am using words to express myself here or on my podcast. Be sure to follow me! I am the co-author of a blog called Life with My Sister and have a podcast called Abby As-Is. You can also follow me on Instagram, Facebook, Pinterest and YouTube.
