Christmas Faves

Today I had this thought...  When you are a kid, Christmas can't seem to come soon enough.  When you are an adult, Christmas seems to come too soon!  Isn't that the truth?!

Well, it seems to be coming so fast and I guess after getting the most important gifts out to my hubby I just decided to take a break.  It's also not easy going shopping with a very active 10 month old.  To top it off, she has been sick all week fighting a viral infection.  Boy oh boy! All I have done the past few days is lay around tending to my sick baby.   But she has been a trooper because we did go out to do some shopping. 

Well on to the Christmas faves.  One of my Christmas faves is wrapping gifts!  I love love love it.  I know a lot of people hate it, but I can't get enough.  I will even wrap gift cards in a shirt box just to wrap a box hehe.

Here are some of my Christmas favorites [most are from Costco]:

These absolutely adorable gift labels!  They are the cutest and 60 for $8, they are a steal.  Just look at those Christmas lights on Snoopy's dog house.

 Stocking stuffers are another Christmas fave!  I sent my hubby a really cute knit one filled with random things.  This year's fave stocking stuffer is for my brother in laws.  I got them this hilarious book.  I know it's for tweens but it's so funny!!  It's an easy read and a great alternative to the usual socks and underwear. 

Now this is my absolute favorite that I even bought one for myself.  It is a great gift for super price.  If I could, I would have bought myself two.  It's a greeting card box filled with beautiful handmade greeting cards.  30 cards for $18!  That is a steal and they are each beautifully made.  I just love it! 

Now it isn't Christmas without peppermint!! I love peppermint hot chocolate, peppermint Hershey Kisses, and thanks to Auntie Marlaine I am now in love with these peppermint biscotti.  I have one every morning with my coffee.
