We love Christmas around our house. We always try to find fun things to do during the season and this weekend we are going to kick our holiday season off with a trip to go see Prestonwood’s – The Gift of Christmas. Prestonwood is one of the largest churches in our area and they have an amazing Christmas show every year. This event is complete with special effects, a nearly 1,000-member cast and choir, live orchestra, flying angels and much more! Here is a video clip from the show…

Here is a look back at when we took the girls to this show  5 years ago. The girls were so little.


This weekend we have our first basketball game of the season. I am so nervous because this is first time I have ever coached the girls in a sport and I hope they actually do the things we have practiced.


Last week I got my 3rd Stitch Fix box and it is for sure one of my favorites this week  I shared my thoughts on each piece HERE but overall I loved every thing I got.  I have gotten multiple compliments every time I wear something for this box or the boxes in the past.  I love Stitch Fix and would recommend that everyone try it at least once.

My Fall Bucket list was a bust so I thought I would try again with a Christmas Bucket List! We always try to do a lot of fun things as a family. Here is our Christmas Bucket List and I hope to do a weekly update.

What we have been up to this week…

The girls and I had fun shopping for our Angel Tree child.  It feels so good to buy presents someone else.  I hope our child has a wonderful Christmas.

Abigail’s 2nd grade class was singing a Christmas song during their school assembly Thursday morning so she wanted to bring some Christmas cheer to school.

Last night our Life Group girls got together for a fun girl’s night.  Instead of doing a gift exchange we brought donations to fill 20 Christmas stockings for women at a local shelter. I made this yummy appetizer that my friend Emily blogged about this week...

This week I have also finished watching two of my favorite shows 😭

I love all things that have to do with the Royal Family. I enjoyed every episode of The Crown!! I really hope they make another season.

  1. The show you are going to this weekend sounds amazing. I would love to go to something like that. I am hoping to watch The Crown over Christmas Break. I have heard nothing but great things, and Gilmore Girls was so good. Have a great weekend Jessica!

  2. I love that you added a star to your baked Brie! So festive! I also love that instead of exchanging gifts you donated to a woman’s shelter!!
    I haven’t started the new Gilmore Girl’s yet because I decided to watch all of the original episodes again to refresh my memory. I can’t wait to watch the new ones!!!
