The holidays are in full force, and Steven and I have been working around the clock to get our home sparkling clean and decorated for Christmas. This Christmas is especially special for Steven and I because it will be our first married Christmas together. Along with that, it will also be our first Christmas to host guests in our home. 

Steven and I moved into our home in August of 2013, and this will be the very first time that we will host guests for the weekend. Needless to say, I've had to do a lot to get our guest room in tip-top shape! We finally got around to hanging a few pictures on the wall, organizing the furniture, and hanging curtains. It was long overdue, but I'm so glad to have a freshly decorated room for our guests to enjoy. 

In addition to getting the guest bedroom ready for our family, I also put my creative skills to work by creating a welcome basket. Our family members are making the effort to travel to Alabama to see us over the holidays, so the least I can do is make them feel welcome in our home for the weekend. In this basket, I wanted to include things that they not only could enjoy while visiting with us, but things that would also support their health and keep them energized throughout the holiday season. After all, once they leave our house they will still have a lot of travel to go before wrapping up the holiday season. 
To keep their immune systems working at their best during their holiday travel, I headed to Wal-Mart to purchase Ester-C 24-HourImmune Support inside of the welcome basket. Ester-C is a form of VitaminC designed to stay in the white blood cells for 24 hours, which in turn provides all day immune system support (via). This is something that is important to keep in mind no matter what time of year it is, but it's especially important during the hustle and bustle of the holidays. It's important to me that Steven and I support our guests’ health while on vacation so they can enjoy themselves as much as possible. I also included a few other goodies, such as Vitamin Water and granola bars to keep energy levels up during holiday travel as well as a couple of yummy indulgences. After all, who can resist chocolate, especially during the holiday season? 
It's my hopes that this welcome basket will help our guests feel more at home during their stay with us in a couple of weeks. I know how hard it is to travel over the holidays, and we are so grateful that our family has chosen to come visit us. I can't wait to welcome them with this adorable basket when they arrive!
