Done.

As of today, we are done taking orders for Christmas delivery.

Any orders received after today may be delayed in shipping.

I just have to take a break and spend time with my own family.
That is the entire point of having a family owned business!

We have been overwhelmed at how successful you all have made this year!



I think in January I need a vacation.
Just me and a friend. Somewhere tropical.
With sand.
And a spa.
And a fruity drink or 7.

Ahhhh, that would be so nice!

beki~i have found your blog from your beautiful work! i have loved your focus on Christ and family!! i believe that is why God blessed your business so much this year :) i giggled when i read this post and knew i had to share...i did the same thing, more business+money=really nice, but i would rather be with my family and so i put a halt to orders and plan for a calm season here(once everything is shipped;))! may the Lord bless you again!

Love their fun stripes - the looks crack me up. Don't you threaten them to smile like I did with my kids today?!?? ;)

Erica said...

Cristy said...

Noone has signed up yet? Count me in. I'll be a whole month from having the baby....no problem. :) If you take me, you don't have to share the fruity drinks either!

We can go anywhere you like....California. Hawaii. Whatever. I'm game.

I vote "yes" to the fruity drink or 7.

Love those stripes on your kids!
Glad you're going to be able to take a break and slow down a little.

My friend and I invented what we call 'The Redneck Spa' on my back patio this year. We had a blast and it didn't cost us anything, except a little nail polish and some fruity drinks! I know it's not the same as going somewhere tropical, but it sure was fun to have some girly time.

Love the stripes...I'm a stripe addict.
Your idea sounds good. :) And I don't even own a business! I do have a KITCHENFUL OF DISASTER right now, that does not even begin to compare with the lure of fruity drinks. haha
