Christmas Eve is here!

It's Christmas Eve!!! YAY! It's here- ready or not ladies ;) 
First to clear things up- Yesterday's gift was NOT a repeat gift. It was, in fact the second template for the double take set. So for those that downloaded and kept/opened you now have both templates :)
I didn't spend the day exactly how I had planned- Because that wonderful pizza that we enjoyed yesterday....well it tore us all up today. So I spent the day with upset tummied kiddos (which didn't last more than a couple hours) Then after papers spent the evening with Dad helping him through it. Thankfully it seems to move  quickly an already he and everyone else is on the mend. 

But guess what that means? OH yes, another year I am going out on Christmas Eve with dad for shopping. I think I should just chalk this up to tradition - since we've been doing it so long LOL. Thankfully I got the rest of the stuff out of the way already :)

In the midst of caring for the ickies, I managed to get my bird prepped, plates prepped, dinner items for todays visits done and everything in lined :) 

Today starts our celebrations, as we are doing a little birthday party for Snowbell (our Christmas baby from last year) then dinners for the kids' other side of the family and then our annual Christmas eve run (of course dad's shoppping too LOL)

So I will be taking the break starting now and be back after Christmas. Tonight's gift was a prior release in my store that retired out this year. We love Dr. Suess and read a few of his books today while lounging around- so it just seems the right kit to pass along. 
Here is the preview, in case you already have or so you can see before downloading todays gift. 

With Only 1 Day left until Christmas.....


Please note - each day's download will remain valid for 24 hours.
*With exceptions when noted*
  Today's gift will be up Until December 25th 11:59 pm EST
 After that point, it will be revealed, placed in the shop and a new gift will be given.
For those that missed yesterday's and the prior gift, here is what those two days had in store. 

I wish everyone a VERY Merry Christmas!!! I will be back on the 26th and the 12 days of Christmas will commence. 

I hope that your time is filled with love, smiles, kindness and things that make the heart happy. If you have no plans and aren't doing anything- Just take some time for YOU- Do something you enjoy- however small or big. Maybe a nice treat of warm tea and a relaxing bath, or watching the sunset in the park. 
I hope that the time that comes, brings your soul some joy!

Much Love and Hugs!!!
