A Very Varela Christmas

In this house we are crazy for Christmas! I have been neglecting the blog lately but seeing as how Christmas is a mere 5 days away (!!!!) I cannot delay anymore! Especially since I have no excuse, I took these pictures weeks ago and they were featured on Migonis Home. Alas, here are some photos of what Christmas has been like in our home this year. 

Who doesn't love the Willowtree Nativity?

These next few pictures are from a small party we hosted for friends from Gordon. Couscous Salad, Sliders, Caprese Skewers, S'mores Cookies, Peppermint Cupcakes, Cheesecake, Cookies of all kinds & a hot chocolate bar. It was a delish menu! 

And, since no day is complete without photos of Mason... check out his expressions upon meeting Santa. His gasp of awe and admiration was precious and when he looked up and whispered "Santa....", it was straight out of a Hallmark commercial (you know, the ones that always make you cry.....or is that just me?)
 Well don't say I didn't warn you. We are CRAZY about Christmas here!
