H54F || The Week Before Christmas!

Can you b e l i e v e it is the week before CHRISTMAS?  I mean.  I was just pregnant & it was Halloween...my mind is blown.  Planning to slow down this next week & soak in every moment so my Christmas loving self will be satisfied with memories to last me into another year of waiting for this special time again.   

Linking up with the "High Five For Friday" girls:  Caitlin at Coffee with CaitlinDella at Della Devoted, Katie at Cup of Tea, and Tiff at Bright on a Budget My week has been pretty great & you can just read below to find out:)

1.  Daddy Countdown: The Mr. is coming home in t h r e e more days!!  He is driving this time so he will start out on Sunday & hopefully roll into town Tuesday.  Fingers crossed & Lord willing!  We are S O excited:)  Prayers for safe travels appreciated!


2.  Christmas Cards:  Our Christmas cards came in the mail this week ( I know I am sooo late this year).  S o late.  That I had to take my own picture as our Christmas pictures weren't ready yet- & this is the result!  Cam's face!  I was probably sleep deprived & hungry when I clicked "place order" because I don't recall this being the picture I ordered.  I can't quit laughing.  God definitely has a sense of humor sometimes & I think this is just a subtle reminder that no matter how perfect you try to do everything during the holiday season...sometimes things are going to happen.  I needed that.  An excuse to use Peanut stamps. And the laugh:)

3.  Christmas Baking+Giving:  Cam & I have been baking up a storm all week in hopes to make some delivery's on Tuesday to some special people:)  I'll keep you posted on how that goes!
Ony Photo bomb- She is all about some Christmas Cookies...
4.  Great One Month Check-Up for Baby Conley!  Conley had a one month check up on Tuesday & my how he has grown!  He weighed 10 lbs 14 oz., 22.5 inches long, & our doctor was very pleased with everything.  It always puts my mind at peace when I know my boys are healthy.  I don't rest easy when I let myself worry that something is wrong, especially in this newborn phase!  A cry can make me fall to pieces these days (but I'm better than I was with Cam) ;)
5.  Using the Elf on The Shelf to promote Speech & Language:  As a Christmas loving Speech Therapist, I have to share this awesome link here!  The Elf is such a great tool for fun a n d learning:)  Tune in Monday to see what our Spider (& Cam Newton Elf) did this week!

I just mailed my cards this week too! Super behind here! The Peanuts stamps are adorable. I borrowed some of those from my dad and had to resist using all of them :) Love the Cam Newton elf! For some reason, I really like him, even though I'm not from the Carolinas OR remotely into football, haha! Stopping by from H54F! Have a great holiday!
