Weekend Reading: December 10, 2011

playing with our nativity sets while Bear holds Blankie and watches

I’m so excited about the next two weeks. For the first time ever, I’m taking off the two weeks before Christmas just to be with my family and enjoy advent activities, baking and more. We’re planning to ring the Salvation Army bell, make ornaments, bake cookies, deliver treats to our doctor’s office and more!

Don’t worry — I’ve been hard at work over the last couple of weeks getting ready for this time off, so there’s great content scheduled every day. We’ll be finishing off our 101 Days of Christmas series with even more great gifts and projects, and we’ve got giveaways, guest posts and more!

Here are some of my favorite posts from this week. As always, check out what I’m reading to see the other posts that make me stop and think. You’ll find new posts all week long!
