christmas as seen through my phone

Photobucket
sophia and santa - this moment was so worth the crazy amount of time that we waited in line - i was one of those moms who stayed in line even though my sane self knew it was ridiculous - but the moment was magical - this santa knows his stuff and made my girl feel very very special - so worth it

Photobucket
i baked - these are white chocolate cherry shortbread - i also made our classic pearson gingerbread men - and egg nog cookies - baking and me these days are not best friends - we get quite annoyed at each other

Photobucket
my happy thrifted find - an old tree topper (it came complete with the original box - handcrafted in romania) $3.99

Photobucket

Photobucket
two of my five vintage christmas cards - purchased at an antique store in mt. vernon washington - they make me happy

Photobucket
these make sophia happy - some of her advent treasures - thats right she had a my little pony advent calender - very traditional - but for real every morning was so fun to open up each box and find itty bitty pony fun

Photobucket
how old are you? oh your four. daydreaming away looking at books - the nutcracker is her favorite

Photobucket
maple ridge tree in the center of town

maple ridge has its not so fabulous moments but one thing they always get right are there christmas street decorations - i cant get enough of the old vintage street decor
