Christmas Chaos

Christmas   I love Christmas. I love celebrating the birth of Jesus and the beginning  of the Easter season.

Because I work at a church the past few Christmas’s have looked like our family serving and spending Christmas Eve or a day close to it with our church family. We usually get to spend some part of Christmas Eve with my parents which Consists of brand new Christmas jammies, my grandmother’s gumbo recipe, and a reading of the Cajun night before Christmas. When Drew’s parents aren’t in Tennessee we’re all together, usually in our home which has become so special to me. Traditions  Christmas

But I came across this whole nail sticker trend and I love it!!! I keep my nails super short so I can get 2 uses out of one sticker.
