Little Bit of Christmas In the Kitchen

Good morning to you all!

I am headed to my mom’s today with the kiddos for lunch!  HOORAY and Praise the Lord that she is feeling good during Christmas.

I have a few little touches of Christmas in the kitchen that I would love for you to see. 

Remember….simplicity was the key for me this year.

My little one built this house for her mama to live in cause she knows how much I love sweets.

That is a blessing that your mom is feeling good at Christmas time!! Your kitchen looks so pretty! I'm loving all the little pops of red spread around the room!

Wonderful to hear your Mothers feeling better! :) Adore you simple Christmas decor! I've seen the creamy red/white string all over blogland, can't seem to find any! :( The cookie cutters in a jar is a super cute idea! I can just smell Christmas in your house!

Oh I'm so happy your mom is having a good day Amy!! Have a lovely time with her today!
And how sweet is that little gingerbread house your little made for you!!!
My son made me a braided yarn key chain in school and gave it to me yesterday, he just couldn't wait until Christmas, and it really touched my heart! This was one of the things I truly looked forward to when I was pregnant with my children, their homemade gifts!!!
Take care.
