We started on Saturday with designer and sponsor day at the Idea House. I was so excited my amazing mom and my sweet cousin Hannah joined me. It made it a wonderful day.

Lots of pom poms for the presents. Jenny, Lynn, and Kate made lots of poms pins ahead of time so we were ready to wrap. You girls could go in the professional pom pom making business.

Lynn stamped our packages for under the trees… This would never have worked for me when I was a child. I was the worst about sneaking around and figuring out my gifts.

If you have a chance go check out the house. A few thanks to my Christmas Elves. Thank you Jenny, Kate, and Lynn for making pom poms. Thanks Blaine for making the super cool Pinecone snowflakes. They are awesome! Jenny and Leslie thanks for wrapping tons of gifts! And to the install elves thanks to Scott, Frank, Christina, Lynn, and my mom… You all rock! Santa is going to recruit y’all to the official elf crew!

Merry Christmas! (just a little early)
