Today is the day.....the start of December Daily.
Dan surprised me with this kit the day they went on sale. I told him we shouldn't but he doesn't listen too well. I'm so glad for that sometimes :)
Chilly the Elf, made is debut yesterday afternoon. The doorbell rang, and there he was with his book. To say Jake was EXCITED is a complete understatement. He loves that guy----
Friday night we found our tree and a beautiful wreath for the front door.
Dan has been busy putting a few lights in the trees and around the door to welcome the holiday. We are so excited for all of the traditions. Christmas tree decorating, cookie baking, our advent candle wreath, Christmas shopping, family, friends, Midnight Mass, Christmas lights, cocoa and just being together.
I've been totally addicted to these Strawberry Banana Smoothies. I've made a ton of smoothies the past few years, but this one is my favorite! It's my after treadmill treat, and I look forward to it everyday. Here's the recipe below, it's just an estimate. I just fill my magic bullet up until it's full. Makes one big ole glass :)
Strawberry Banana Yogurt Smoothie
1/2 cup plain non fat yogurt
1 tsp. pure vanilla extract
frozen strawberries, about 5 large
1/2 c Silk Vanilla Soy milk
Blend until smooth. :)
