My Best Friend is a Gingerbread Man

Well after reading that title, I'm sure you're wondering...no, I've not eaten one too many candy canes. (Do people actually eat those?) I have some of the best friends that love to make my holiday celebrations so much fun, and this includes showing up at my door, with cookies and other yummy treats in hand, dressed like a gingerbread man. I love when my friend does this; it's become tradition, and I look forward to her arrival at my front door each year :)

I finally got to see the Narnia movie in 3D with my family, and I loved it! Just to clarify, it won't make you dizzy unless you are extremely sensitive to motion, and I mean really extremely crazy sensitive. I won't go into detail about how much I love the movie, since I sort of declared my love for it on a previous post :) If you have the choice between seeing it in 3D or regular, I'd go for the 3D because I felt like a lot of the animated characters, like Aslan and Reepicheep were so much more realistic and such with the 3D view. I could say more, but I think you should just experience it for yourself!! 

Back to the subject of amazing friends, I received the cutest pair of gloves from my wonderful friend MJ who has a charming blog called A Day in the Life. If you're not following her, you need to fix that immediately. I have worn these adorable gloves so much in the last couple of days, and received so many compliments; they are the warmest, coziest and most comfortable things to put on your hands.  You can find a pair for yourself in her Etsy Store: MJ's Closet. It's such fun to have lovely friends like her in the blog world; thank you again, dear! 

This week holds a Christmas party with friends, a visit to see the ballet, baking, wrapping, and a wonderful celebration of Christmas itself! (Can you believe it's here already?!) I hope in the busy time, that you get a moment to relax and enjoy, to take in the lovely moments that surround you. I'm wishing you the merriest of Christmases, wonderful time spent with family and friends, and whole lot of love! 

Luke 2:4-7
4 So Joseph also went up from the town of Nazareth in Galilee to Judea, to Bethlehem the town of David, because he belonged to the house and line of David. 5 He went there to register with Mary, who was pledged to be married to himand was expecting a child. 6 While they were there, the time came for the baby to be born, 7 and she gave birth to her firstborn, a son. She wrapped him in cloths and placed him in a manger, because there was no room for them in the inn.


Blessings,

Candice

Your whole weeks sounds busy and festive! I do agree with watching the movie in 3D. We saw it in 3D by default. We had no choice :)

Thanks for the lovely comment! Good question about candy canes...Every year I think its a good idea to eat one, and every year, I give up half way through. I love the look of them but am not a huge fan of the eating part. Think I will try to leave mine as decorations this year! Have a lovely Christmas.

Taylor said...
