Thanksgiving leftover turkey stuffed shells recipe from @bakedbyrachel A fun and flavorful twist on holiday leftovers!

I’ve been full blown into the Christmas spirit since the beginning of the month. Honestly, I was itching for it probably before Halloween. And since it’s such an odd and awful year, who could blame me? We didn’t do trick or treating or costumes but we did still make it special. Fast forward a few weeks, and I slowly started to add holiday trinkets around the house. My favorites are snow globes and nutcrackers. The snow globes I only started collecting in the last 10 years or so, but each one had a special meaning. Sadly, I discovered over the weekend that somehow two of them leaked significantly. Thankfully only a few others were damaged from the water but it was still sad.

Yesterday’s mission… snow globe replacement. I was mostly successful. I have always adored music boxes and snow globes that played music. This dates back to when I was a kid and I’d visit a store in the mall with my mom. They literally only stocked these items. It was dreamy and magical. The replacement I found sadly doesn’t play music, but boy do I wish it did. It’s okay… the inside theme is just as special and magical. Characters from The Nutcracker ballet. I can almost hear the music it would play while the snow inside falls.

Do you have favorite holiday decorations? Have you started decorating already or are you waiting till after Thanksgiving?
