The Sparkly Time of Year Has Arrived!

I’ve been listening to Christmas music for weeks, not gonna lie.  Even when I’m NOT listening to it, I’m humming it.  Yes friends, it’s my favorite time of year!

Lately we have enjoyed visits from family with several more to come… we’ve been enjoying yummy meals that take extra time to prepare and make your pants feel tight…we’ve enjoyed wandering the aisles of Target looking at all their fun holiday stuff…Picking out Christmas trees and choo choo trains…and Christmas Plays…  It’s been a fun few weeks and there is more to come.

I told everyone that I made the best thing for Thanksgiving this year…RESERVATIONS!

Rudolph the Red Nose Reindeer is becoming an annual tradition for us.

We were so happy that Matt’s Mom was in town and could enjoy it with us!  Milo’s face though…

One of those long trips to Target.  Cady and I both wanted this sweater so this is our edition of “who wore it better?”.  Neither of us ended up getting it.  ha!

This years advent calendar…What can I say, I went super simple this year.  Pieces of scrap paper taped to our chalkboard with activities written on the other side.

 

We have lots of more fun advent activities waiting for us.  Cady has a Christmas concert this week.  Milo is part of his preschool’s holiday program next week…  This year, in addition to a lot of our regular activities, we’ve added in some fun ones like “put on our own family Christmas play” and “Christmas make-overs”.  And each day I decorate a little more – every corner will be sparkly and  Christmasy by the time December 25th gets here.  I’m not sure who will take it all down but we’ll figure all that out later!  Gage and LaLa will be here for Christmas and we can’t wait until our whole family is in one place – even if it’s just for a few days.

Until next time, I hope you have added sparkly lights to every room in your house…there can never be enough.
