Friday Favorites

Happy Friday, friends!  We've been in Christmas Break mode over here since the kids have been done with school since the 15th.  I baked a ton and we had a good week with family and friends.  

Did you catch my blog posts this week?

2023 Family Pictures & Our Christmas Card Shot

Here are the highlights of our week:

1. Record Week

When I say that I spent a ton of time baking, I'm not kidding.  It was a record baking week for Jordan Bakery Box.  I baked about 50 dozen cookies for orders this week.  It was a really fun challenge and I'm proud to have it behind me.  I have a few more orders to finish up the year, but it was awesome to finish the year BIG.

2. Dinner & A Game

We met family for dinner at our favorite pizza spot and then the boys headed to a basketball game.  The pizza was delicious.  We had a good time.  And Fletcher enjoyed the one on one time with Kevin.

3. Elf Work

Our elves have been busy.  They brought crafts and treats to finish up the week.  The kids all made cute angel ornaments for out tree and we used their Christmas card picture for the angel faces.

4. Kitty cuddles

It was chilly all week so we had out the blankets.  The cats were thrilled.

5. Winter sunsets

6. Lots of playing outside with friends

7. Neighbor gifts

The kids helped me deliver neighbor treats and cards.  I baked chocolate chip cookie bars and made them chocolate covered pretzels.

A neighbor delivered us a loaf of homemade bread and cinnamon butter!  It was so good.  I love a delicious Christmas gift made with love.

8. S'more Station

We set up a s'more station and Kevin helped the kids make a snack.

9. We played games!

10.  Our cute cousin Addison turned 17!

She had a pancakes and pajamas party.  Everything was yummy and Leo LOVED helping her open gifts.  He was so cute and so animated. 

11. We watched a lot of Christmas movies!

We really enjoyed Family Switch, The Grinch, Home Alone 1 & 2 and a few others.  Along with tons of snacks.

12. Christmas with Friends

We had some fun Christmas celebrations with friends.  I loved how this gift came together.  We got our friends gifts and these ornaments seemed perfect for them.  Sams paper and ribbon for the win.  I love to stock up on cute ornaments when I can find them on clearance and then save them for gift toppers the next year.

I hope you've had a good week and that you have a very Merry Christmas!  I'm not sure when I'll be checking back in after Christmas so hope to talk to you soon :)
