I guess we were good this year because we all got everything that was on our lists. Here are some photos of the really cool stuff. Some gifts that I didn't take pics of: personalized license plates from Pablo to me, Lululemon pants from my parents to me (my first pair!), my parents got Pablo a children's book written by Obama (Pablo is obsessed with him), Pablo got a vintage looking Blue Jays jersey, the kids got some super cute clothes and again, Simon got a whole bunch of things on wheels.

the kids go the cookie plate from my mom and used it Christmas Eve. The others are for me from my folks. I've been dying for a dutch oven/crockpot for AGES.
And the best gift of all:

I am now the proud owner of a pair of Hunter boots! Now I just need to get the socks to go in them so that I can wear them through the winter. They are so fantastic! Thanks to Jen (and my parents) for these!

Here are some stockings that I bought from Etsy store coffeepurse. They are fantastic, well made and very reasonably priced. I ordered them a few days before Christmas and figured we'd start using them next year and to my surprise they came on the 23rd!


  1. I'm a total lurker coming out of the woodwork - that worry doll wreath is awesome! Is there any way you could post which etsy site your sister got it from? And Happy Holidays - I love your blog!

  2. I love all the etsy stuff! Esp the tree puzzle. And seriously, Simon's hair is so freaking cute.

  3. Wow- that's a whole lot of awsome etsy-stuff!
    And I like those boots you got!
    Have a great day.

  4. Hey Lauren! Come out of the woodwork more often because I love comments and I tend to comment back to every one. I just sent Kim an email to ask for the etsy stores for everything - I would have called her but it's too early in the morning. I'll add the stores under the photos once Kim gets back to me.

    Hollie - the tree was one of my favs - I love all the greens. Had to put it on a shelf up high so that the kids don't knock if over. It doesn't look like the easiest puzzle to put back together quickly. Simon's hair is cute but holy crap it grows so fast and supposedly we're supposed to give him a mohawk because Pablo lost a bet at Christmas.......

    Thanks rahel! I'm just dying to get the socks for htose boots so that I can wear them!

  5. Oh man, you guys made out like fat rats! I love all the handmade stuff. I made some stuff this year and bought stuff from etsy. I love the idea of supporting people who are being creative like that. Love the vintage stuff too.

    Such cute boots!

  6. I love handmade etsy stuff. My sister and I are quite obsessed. It was an awesome xmas.

    Thanks - the boots rock. Can't wait to wear them!
