Golden Christmas

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.d27

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.d32

The Grotto’s Festival Of Lights

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.  photo-1photo-2g22The paths were illuminated with scriptures.g3A procession of angels appeared to fly above through the trees.g4g26Untitled-4g25There was a petting zoo with goats and a baby lama, as well as a biblically based puppet shows for the kids.g5Untitled-5g8g16A breath-taking nativity scene was nestled into the cove of a mountain.g9Candle lit prayers lined the walls.g1

The church was lit up beautifully inside and out for midnight mass.g21g11There were “prayer trees” that guests were welcomed to contribute to. A lovely gesture of community and touching experience as we read through them.

Of course there were so many lights! So many beautiful, beautiful lights.g24g20g15g19Kisses beneath the twinkling lights, wrapping up our favorite season that always fills our hearts with joy and light!g23

Ipsy Beauty Candy

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.

It was the first Halloween in years that Mister Mister was able to take off from work and spend with us so we were really happy to have the time with him.
