Picture Perfect

Look what I got as a gift today...aren't they adorable?! I got one for each child - I cannot resist any form of personalization - love it! Names, monograms on anything and everything if I had my way! Next year I would love to do a whole tree in my living room of picture ornaments, monograms, and silhouettes...not the most original idea but I am a picture fanatic so I think it would be fun!...Thanks again Jen, I LOVE them and they were too cute to add into my already very busy tree so instead they have a very prominent place worked into our mantle garland!
And just a random question for you but don't you always take a hostess gift? And don't you always remember close friends at Christmas with a little goody? Don't you bake for neighbors (or something for your neighbors?!)...do you tip your mailman, housekeeper and postman? What about garbage guys...it is hard to draw a line in these categories but friends, neighbors and teachers are always remembered - I give the gal that cleans my house an extra payment or something very indulgent and usually (not always) have remembered any of the other service men/women as mentioned above - I guess I am just surprised at how many people I know that don't give gifts at all...I LOVE to give and I don't always (most of the time) have extra money to work with but to me that makes it more challenging,memorable and fun! Something small and heartfelt for sure! I think it is important to model that kind of giving for my kids too - this Season we are trying to hard to do something"good" and kind or service oriented daily...I am a little late to start but love this idea...it is the reason for the season, no?

How adorable! And I love this post! From one giver to another....Merry Christmas!!!
I'm sorry for the late response. I got your question about the doll houses and they are made by a company called Le Toy Van. I bought them at Grahams
Cuts for Kids in Greenwich. To die for toy store! The owner has a gift with kids toys.I believe you can also get them online and I am pretty sure Chasing Fireflies sells the same ones. They are cuter in person! My girls have LOVED these little doll houses and goodies!

I would love to exchange Christmas Cards with you if you can email me your address!

Many Blessings!!

I too took advantage of this offer! The kids love looking at the tree to find a picture of themselves.
