It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas around here — with a little bit of Thanksgiving thrown in!

Our kids are all coming home next week for Thanksgiving and we’ve been busy getting our home ready for all the festivities! What a sweet treat it will be having everyone home, and especially sweet little Miss Eden!

She’s a big 7 month old now, and needs a few more essentials! I found the best little lightweight “perfect for grandma’s house” high chair this week, and it’s now in our dining room waiting patiently for her sweet arrival on Tuesday!

We spent last weekend babysitting, and she’s at the best age!

Over the next few days we’ll be finishing up our Christmas decor, and next week I’ll be sharing lots of Christmas shopping ideas with you!

It’s such a special time of year and I know it makes your heart happy to have everyone together. Thank you so much for sharing my vintage wrapping station. I really appreciate it.
