Sausage, White Bean, & Winter Vegetable Soup

How are we feeling about the holidays friends?  Thanksgiving is over and it is full steam ahead towards Christmas.  Like it or not, that train is moving and it’s moving fast, so I guess it’s time for us all to jump on!

I’ve talked to people that have all of their shopping done already.  Some of them even have their gifts wrapped!  

I am not one of those people.  

We got our first holiday card in the mail yesterday.  

I was tickled that I even got my cards ordered.  Getting them addressed and in the mail is a whole other story.  If I were you, I wouldn’t wait by your mailbox in anticipation of receiving it.   

I’m seeing pictures on Facebook of beautifully decorated Christmas trees, holiday mantles, and outdoor lights.  

We are getting ready to replace the flooring in most of our first floor, so I am using the anticipated dirt and dust as an excuse to keep all of our decorations in the crawl space.  

Elves on the Shelf have already made appearances in many homes and are getting up to their usual holiday hijinx.  

Our elf, Rosie, has shown up after the incessant questioning by my kids of when she would come and has unceremoniously plopped herself in the usual boring and uncreative spots.
