Friday Five: 'Tis the Season!

Happy Friday! I officially finished my holiday shopping yesterday, so my mind is clear and I'm ready to start enjoying the season! Here's a couple things I'm looking forward to doing with the kids this weekend and some awesome finds too good not to share.

It's getting cold outside, but these adorable spa socks will keep your tootsies cozy. I picked up two pairs, so Vaughn and I can be twinsies. 

Vaughn and I take our doodling very seriously and these pencil caddies are going to up our game big time. They're padded, zip able, and the best part, the strap on to your coloring book or journal so that everything stays together. 
 Genius! Why didn't I think of that?!? 

 I'll be making a new batch of these ornaments with the kiddos over the weekend. All it takes is cinnamon and apple sauce (I picked up giant bottles of each from a wholesale club). Roll them flat, cut out, poke a hole, and let them dry. They'll smell glorious on your tree!
Cinnamon Ornaments 
2 cups applesauce
2 cups cinnamon
Mix together. If too wet, add more cinnamon. If too dry, add more applesauce. Sprinkle cinnamon on surface and roll out to 1/4 inch thick. Cut with cookie cutters and use toothpick or straw to cut hole. Dry by leaving out for a few days or baking 2.5 hours on 200 degrees. For smooth edges, sand when dry. 

Get your Gingerbread Houses early! My kiddos still enjoy making them, so I picked up 2 of these early on. (Last year I waited to long and had a hard time tracking one down.) 
RO TIP: Use hot glue to assemble the houses. Don't even bother with the icing. Save it to use for decoration. Trust me on this one!  

Cheers to a great weekend!
