Fussy and Fancy DT Feature + lots of chit chat

Hello Fresh Brewed Fans.
I am so crazy right now, I don't know if I am coming or going!
I am sure that is how we are all doing right now. I had this perfectly calm, 
quiet, peaceful Christmas season planned out in my head. We were going to be
watching Christmas movies, baking cookies and doing all of those fun things. 
We HAVE but have also done more running around than I imagined. 
I am sure it is less than many, but over the last weeks time has just flown by!
I can not believe Christmas is just a week away! WOW!
The kids are super excited... but  I am a little sad. I wish we had 
a few more weeks to just sit and enjoy it. All of the little things like the lights twinkling on the tree,
the kids eyes filled with excitement, joy, and anticipation. 
We love driving around looking at houses decorated in beautiful lights while sipping on
hot cocoa (coffee for me ;). It just seems that it has gone by too fast this year.
We HAVE been able to purchase gifts for others in need. That was a lot of fun. 
We deliver gifts to the nursing home on Friday afternoon, my nephews birthday party is Friday evening,
and we are having a family Christmas party at my home on Saturday night. 
It is so much fun! My brother, his GF, my sister and her family, and my mom and dad come over. 
We eat, laugh, eat more, and play a fun game. We all draw names on Thanksgiving. 
We take the name of the person we get and purchase a cheap or homemade gag gift. 
It is so fun! I do have to let you in on a secret though. Every year I always find out who half of
the people have :D. I help my kids, my husband.. then this year my brother, his girlfriend and my sister
have asked for help! HAHAHAH!!! I am going to suggest we do the Chinese acution type of 
game for next year :D  I can't wait to see everyone's faces when they open their gifts though :D

Ok, Ok, I am done  running my mouth. I am really hear to share a

She has introduced me to Shabby White Frantage

I think it just adds that extra touch of magic to the image.
