Twas The Sunday Before Christmas...

... and all over Anchorage the snow was finally falling!

We were so happy to see some snow falling on Sunday morning! It's only snowed two times before this this year! We were really hoping for some fresh now for Christmas.

I love the trail system here in Anchorage. These photos look like we're out in the middle of no where but in fact we were only five minuets from home and in the middle of a city! There are beautiful woods, parks and trails like this all over the city. It's really neat.

December 19th

Yesterday was amazing. 

From the glorious sunrise, to moose hanging out in our yard, to another glorious sunset. 

The colors were just stunning and we always love seeing the beautiful animals that call Alaska home. These are the things that fill my heart and bring perspective after a long week or rough day of homeschooling.

Though I did burn the cookies that were in the oven because I forgot all about them when was outside watching the sunset and moose visitors. Oops! Totally worth it though! :)

Handmade in Alaska

I wanted to share some of the amazing creative people we had at the Wonderfully Made Christmas Bazaar at our church. 

My friend Megan and I were there with our Lilla Rose display and had so much fun meeting the shoppers and other vendors. 

The church did an amazing job of taking care of each of us. They helped carry things in and out during set up and take down. They brought us lunch and helped us with anything else we needed. 

Gorgeous and affordable Vintage Chic accessories and home decor! Vintage Inspired for Modern Life.

Sherri was set up right across from me at the Bazaar on Saturday. I wish you could try those samples on her table. They are yummy! I bought some of each to tuck in Geoff's stocking on Christmas.
ust mix with one cup of mayo and one cup sour cream with a packet of seasonings and your set. Super easy to slip in the mail if you're interested! 
My favorite was the Veggie but the Bacon and Chipotle was yummy too. As well as the salsa seasoning.

I just love their set up!

Check out these chalkboard table runners. Such a cute idea.

I hope you enjoyed that peek at some of the many wonderful vendors we had at the Christmas show on Saturday. It was pretty busy at my table all day so I didn't get a chance to look at everything as closely as I would have liked. With over 100 vendors I could  have spent all day there. I'm already looking forward to next year.
