Living so close to the beach rather than do the whole “pack up the house and move in for the day” sort of trips, we like to do shorter trips more often. Run down for a picnic dinner, go boogie board for a couple of hours, then head home. So we (my daughter and I) are always on the look out for cute bags we can throw a few things into for our quick trips. All we need is something big enough for a water bottle, sun screen, and a book.

I have found some more cute Christmas printables to share with you!
Have you heard of Catch My Party? They have such cute printables - and so many of them are free!
I fell in love with the Cookies and Cocoa party set – there is such a cute variety and you can use them for so many things! They have a bunch in the set that are perfect for a cocoa party or cookie exchange.
The little graphics are so sweet and I love the stripes!
I think I need to have a Hot Cocoa bar set up this weekend after we go look at Christmas lights. It’ll be super easy to do and so nice to come back to something hot to drink!
There are so many other fun things you can do with the printables in the set. I printed out the large circle designs – they are perfect for gift tags.
I think I’m going to print up some more and glitter them up. Wouldn’t these be sweet covered in red glitter?
I also printed out some of the little flags. These would be cute as little party pics – but I’m going to cut them out and glue them to my Christmas Card envelopes.
I think they’ll really dress them up!
I would totally show you that if I had my Christmas card envelopes. But I don’t.
I figure – why not wait until the last minute – it makes Christmas prep so much more exciting. :)

Ok – so you might know I’m a bit of a cat person. And I have two little babies that I love dearly.
This is Xray -
Who apparently feels that the camera will steal his soul and under no condition whatsoever should he look directly at it.
And this is our baby, Kato.
Who isn’t really a baby anymore (except to me) and isn’t afraid of anything or anybody.
Christmas time is an adventure with these two. We put up the tree and it’s all – “woohooo – Christmas is here for us all”. The tree is the place to hang out and nosh on. And have epic play battles under and nap near. It’s the bessssst.
But with Christmas also comes some decor changes – and if you have cats you know that anything different is something not be trusted for many weeks. And by that time all the decorations go away again.
It also means lots of family, and other family pets, that come to visit. Which makes Xray hide under the bed. :)
So I’m trying something new this year to help them to relax. Have you heard of Comfort Zone® with Feliway®?
Comfort Zone® products help to reduce stress in pets, and stress usually results in behaviours like scratching and marking. They release natural pheromones that help them to calm down and relax! How cool is that?!
Now our guys have never done the marking thing. (thank goodness). But there is some scratching naughtiness that will get them coal in their stockings occasionally. ;)
And since new sofas are on my wish list for next year – I would reallllly love this to stop.
Since this is in one of the two rooms we are in the most, I’ve added the Comfort Zone® with Feliway® Diffuser to the nearest outlet, and I’ve used the Comfort Zone® with Feliway® Spray to this part of the sofa. Which is the only part they ever mess with, silly things.
I am hoping it helps them to relax and cut down on the scratching and to not be stressed out with all the decor changes – and all the family coming!
I just love finding the nearest iron object and snuggling up to it all cozy, don’t you?
How do your pets do during the holidays? Do they love it? Stress out? Climb the tree? :)
