Christmas 2013, our golden Christmas. A lot of love, a lot of memories and a lot of gold, literally. I naively bought gold glitter wrapping paper to go with our white and gold color scheme and boy was that a sparkly mess. I digress. A special Christmas none the less.
An early Christmas gift to Mister Mister from Lovey and I.
My Christmas Eve gift to the boys, light up remote control cars. I had eyed these on the Christmas toy palooza, that is the home shopping network come December, for a couple of years and finally caved. There were no regrets.
Who needs rose-colored glasses when you have Christmas tree tinted ones?! Just saying.
He asked Santa for Hot Wheels and a yo-yo. Santa came through on both requests!A tire shaped yo-yo to go with the Hot Wheels, Santa is so witty.Always adding to Mister Mister’s Arizona Cardinals collection.Such a cutie.Lovey received a train table as a gift from Mister Mister and I and the boys spent hours putting it together and then playing.Cozy new blanket cuddles.Christmas flowers from my boys.Our Christmas dinner that I prepared.Christmas card love, one of my very favorite kinds of love. xo
After a visit with Mister Mister’s parents and gift exchange followed by Christmas Eve dinner we then spent the rest of the evening at The Grotto’s Festival of Lights, a local church sanctuary’s Christmas celebration. The paths were illuminated with scriptures.A procession of angels appeared to fly above through the trees.There was a petting zoo with goats and a baby lama, as well as a biblically based puppet shows for the kids.A breath-taking nativity scene was nestled into the cove of a mountain.Candle lit prayers lined the walls.
The church was lit up beautifully inside and out for midnight mass.There were “prayer trees” that guests were welcomed to contribute to. A lovely gesture of community and touching experience as we read through them.
October Ipsy: Beauty Candy
What I received…
*MICA Beauty Cosmetics powder eye shadow in an olive-green shade. I wasn’t very excited about the product or the color so I haven’t tried it yet.
*Figs & Rouge hand cream in the scent mango manderine. The packaging is really cute but I am not a fan of citrus smells.
*Starlooks lip color. It is a pretty pink shade that I like. Not too bright so I would wear it spring, summer and into the early fall.
*epice purifying face scrub. I haven’t tried it yet but I was fine with receiving it.
*Doll 10 illuminizer in shade champagne. This is definitely my favorite think in the bag. I added it to my everyday assortment of products, I use it to highlight above my blush and I like that it has a built-in mirror also, it’s cute.
The bag was ok, much sturdier than September’s bag. I like the color and the quilted pattern on it.
