a {very etsy} christmas and gelato

My friend, Stephanie at The Hanes Family Chronicles is hosting a fun little link-up called "A Very Etsy Christmas".   Now, you know I could not resist adding some etsy love.  Since everything is handmade on Etsy, many things can't be rush delivered.  However, being the late shopper that I am, I was pleasantly surprised to find that some sellers are offering expedited shipping.  The lovelies that I'm featuring today are not some of those (small pout).  But, there's always next year!
I absolutely LOVE this nativity scene of vintage knit figures! Find it at judygovintage.
My boys would love this wooden t-rex by banished
Our floors are so cold and Astair's toes would be cozy and darling in these MATILDA Mary Jane Crochet Shoes by CurlyBirdie.
I'm positive my little womb baby kicked in exclamation when I saw these Baby Ankle Boots by crochetvalley.

Notice a slight theme here?  I think I need to learn how to crochet!!

Daddy flew in last Saturday for the weekend!  He had to leave again Monday morning and we were all sad to see him go, but we had the most WONDERful time with our favorite guy.  We took the troop to the New Orleans Children's Museum and had a blast.  Then we stopped at our favorite place, Angelo Brocato's Italian pastry shop.  We feasted on Italian gelato and fudge brownies.  What a perfect weekend.

I just LOVE that nativity set...and I might have to get the pdf file for those boots so my grandma can make them for my little man. Too cute! Thanks so much for joining me and sharing these cute shops!

I totally missed that your hubby is gone right now - I'll be praying for you dear friend. I know what you mean about looking forward to him coming home for dinner. I can hardly wait for my hubby to walk through the door in the evenings.
