Fun Stuff for the Holidays. :)

The winner is the gal who guessed Blue Christmas by Elvis!! I LOVE me some Elvis. :) You can go visit the winner at her blog Forever Folding Laundry. I would call her by name but she didn't give it out. :) So winner...please let me know you saw this and let Shelly know you won. :) So that is my all time favorite song...my all time favorite CDS are Barenaked for the Holidays by the Barenaked Ladies...they sing "Happy Birthday to Jesus" and the Elf Soundtrack. :)

One of my dear MOPS friends pointed me in the direction of these lovely red bird plates...that would just happen to match my winter dishes. (Yes, I have winter dishes...among others). These lovelies live at Pier One...feel free to send any unwanted Pier One gift cards my way... :) So this one isn't really a holiday goody exclusively...its a big brother/sister kit to have at the hospital when your first born meets his or her new little sibling for the first time...I am definitely doing this for Moses...how perfect would this be for a road trip too? Fill it up with little treats, toys, snacks and fun surprises. :) That's bound to buy you a few minutes of peace right?
I love a fun advent...how cute is this one? Those are all little baby socks filled with goodies for each day of the countdown...this is definitely an idea for Moses' first advent this year. :) All you need is some ribbon, socks and clothes pins...attach it to your mantle and you are all ready to count down to Christmas. :)
There is this one too...recycle gift boxes in various shapes and attach to the wall with poster putty...or something you know will come off. These would also be cute piled in a basket...don't forget the fun treats inside. :) All of the above three ideas were swiped from Martha Stewart...every once in a while she has a good idea that doesn't cost a bagillion dollars. :)

Hope your day is grand and your steps are light! Don't forget to come back tomorrow for a fabulous Friday giveaway!! :)

I think the boxes are a cute idea. We would have to do two sets though, so each kid could have one.

I started collecting socks last year to do the sock advent thing, but I'm thinking I might like the box idea better . . .

ooooh, I love the advent socks! So cute! Also, love the big brother box. I've been trying to think of something good to get the boys for the day of the birth...I've just seen some white metal boxes at hobby lobby that would be so cute all decorated. Thanks for the great ideas!! :)
