Collage Friday

Happy New Year! 

It's been a few weeks since I have linked up over at Homegrown Learners for Collage Friday.  We have been off of school for 2 weeks now but ready to get back to our routine on Monday!

Here is a little of what has been happening!

Christmas Morning - the children were very happy with the gifts they received. I was happy they were limited amount of gifts.

Some DIY Homemade gifts and decor I made this season.  I love crafting with Washi Tape and it's so versatile! 

We hosted a little Polar Express and PJ's Playdate a few days before Christmas with a few other homeschool girls. They all had a wonderful time!

We went to a friends house for a few hours on New Years and then came home to ring in the 2014 as a family.  Much to my surprise, we all stayed up! 



In case you missed our Goals for the year you can see them HERE.  (some links to some Pinterest pages you might be interested in following for the upcoming holidays!)

Saving The BEST for last - I am praying for those of you who have decided to join our family in our No Spending Challenge for January! 

 If you have NO idea what I am talking about, I encourage you to read my post from Wednesday HERE.  I know you will be blessed by it! 

Enjoy the weekend - we are snowed it and loving it!  

Be Blessed

We're going to a wedding in SC this weekend -- the no spend challenge is going to be tough, but we are COMMITTED! Hugs to you!

What a wonderful break you all had. I love the idea of your challenge. We don't have much to spend past the essentials (no cable, Iphones or other luxurious), but I will be thinking about each purchase over the next month and will join in if I find we are cutting more corners.
Blessings, Dawn

I smiled at your enjoyment of limited presents. This is the first year that my parents and in-laws have ever limited themselves to just a few things for each child and it was blissful.

Love it! Pics are awesome.
I too, have not linked to CF in quite some time.no collage-y posts. I so enjoy seeing the photos of all who link up.
Thanks for the inspiration too with your goals list!
We are also back to school Monday! Feels like a loooong break.

Merry Christmas ( season) and a very happy 2014 to you!

The pictures are wonderful and it looks like you had a fun Christmas break. We have done quite a bit of purging since Christmas and I'm hoping to not purchase so many things this year, or at least make them worth their space.
