Happy Homemaker Monday 12/11/2017

14 more days until Christmas!  I'm dreadfully behind on my December meme - have to get that caught up today and do some blog planning for 2018.  I can't wait to break open my new planner on Christmas Day.

It's time for another Happy Homemaker Monday with Sandra at Diary of a Stay at Home Mom.  Click here if you'd like to join in.
