    Some nice ideas! I love this time of year. Thanks for sharing this with us at Savoring Saturdays linky party! Hope you come back and join us this week.

  2. What a great list, Abi! My kids would love the Minecraft Blocks – they are crazy over Minecraft! I don’t get it – do you? Ha! The prints are beautiful! Props to Johanna!

    My girlfriend has a line of $5 cookbooks that are for Keto/low carb dieters, but I use her recipes as well, even though I don’t go Keto – especially the Tex Mex ones! I hope you don’t mind me sharing, but her cookbooks are so beautiful…http://fluffychixcook.com/fluffy-chix-newsstand/feast-low-carb-keto-cooking-series/

    {Hugs!} Merry Christmas!!!
