January, and so the new year began

It was a tissues, warm tea, fuzzy blankets, and spoons full of honey kind of start to our new year.  The weather was so cold in the our Chicago suburb that the kids were back home for a few days immediately following their return to school from their holiday break.  All of the above put a delay in my typical January traditions that normally include a renewed desire to improve all sorts of things including myself, my blog, and my home.  As my need for honey to soothe has lessened, I've finally mustered the strength to tackle all those new year, new me type goals with a big old closet purge first on my list.

It's safe to assume you'll be seeing some tweaking around the blog in the next few months as well as some content that embraces this fresh beginning to the year (minus the not-so-fancy stale tissues and dust bunnies part of course).

The Gift that Entertains: Give the Gift of Netflix

It's no secret that we put our Netflix account to very good use in our large household, so why not share our obsession with others we love.

Do you wanna build a snowman (tree)?

We put the Christmas tree up this weekend!  Instead of adding all of our traditional miscellaneous ornaments this year, we decided to shakes things up and go with a theme.  The littler ones have been rather snowman obsessed ever since Frozen released, so why not embrace it and go with a snowman tree.

To achieve the look, we added white lights and wrapped our tree in 6 inch wide white glittery mesh ribbon.  Next we used two match scarves to create one large one cascading down.  Two large branches were plucked from our yard, pruned to size, and topped with gloves.  We made 3 button ornaments out of black painted circles found at michaels, and found the snowman head tree topper that completes the look at Cracker Barrel.  Isn't he cute?
