Holiday hustle and bustle!

This year, much like last, is turning out to be a busy holiday season! And since 3 out of the 4 members of our family (me, Cameron and soon-to-arrive baby sister) have birthdays within 3 weeks of Christmas, I don't anticipate any lack of business or activity around the holidays for years to come!
This weekend, I'm co-hosting a baby shower for my sister-in-law. This is her sixth baby, so we're having a diaper shower since she doesn't need much else. I decided that there was no better time to attempt my first diaper cake- and I think it turned out pretty cute! There are definitely things I'd do differently (construction wise) but I'm very happy with it seeing as how I didn't follow any sort of direction.
Eek- I didn't realize it was a little off-centered until I took a picture. Oh well! I love the bear up top. I got it at Hobby Lobby and thought it would compliment the cake nicely.

We've got a lot going on in the G household; I'm trying to finish up a few things in the kids shared room, the downstairs bathroom is coming along well, Cameron's birthday planning (3 weeks!), Christmas shopping (90% done!), and decorating (I started pulling out a few things today). I don't typically decorate until Thanksgiving, but I'm over my fall decor and anxious for a change. The Christmas tree won't go up until the first week of December though.
How about you- have you started Christmas shopping or decorating?

That diaper cake is so cute! I love the bear. I just made my first diaper cake too but it wasn't nearly as cute as yours!

November and December are always so busy. They seem to go so slow yet fly by at the same time. Pretty soon your baby girl will be here!

Wait, when are you do again? 9 months can't have gone by that fast?!

You have 90% of your Christmas shopping done? OMG. I can't even comprehend. You are my hero.

Great job on the diaper cake. I tried one this year for a friend and it is not my forte!

I need it to get just a little cooler before I can think about Christmas. 70 degrees doesn't even feel like fall! But I think the winter weather is coming.
