We had such a whirlwind of a weekend! i swear it doesn’t feel like monday- i definitely needs another day before we start the week! Saturday we went to a pancakes & pj’s holiday party. Anyone with kids needs to have one of these babies- the theme is super cute- and its the perfect time for them to party while the grown-ups party with bloody mary’s. Pancakes are always a win too (especially mickey mouse shaped ones). This party was awesome- crafts, cookie decorating, and Santa even showed up!
Any party that involves me wearing my PJ’s is a total win in my book.
At first lex was intrigued by santa. . . and then the waterworks started. It was totally hilarious. i LOVE crying santa pictures!
This little boy is seriously lex’s beau. All the kids played SO WELL together. But this little guy? He’s a rockstar with all the little babes. He has a straight up crush on lex and loves to tickle her, shared his bears with her, and read her stories!! It was pure sweetness.
After the PJ party we went to pick out our christmas tree!! It was freezing outside, so i got pretty much zero pictures. But trust me when i tell you we picked a real winner. i dont think we realized just how big the tree was until we got it home and into our living room! But we’re hosting chrismtas even this year– so a giant tree is a complete necessity.
Sunday we went to visit Santa again! We should get the digital negative sometime in the next few weeks- but this time there were no tears- just a face of terror. I seriously cant wait to see lex’s santa picture! We then had a sunday-funday filled with football, dark & stormies, and delicious burgers. We rounded it out with a boat-parade around sunset harbor- and it was the perfect little sunday (again i failed and took zero pictures!).
And the playroom is FINALLY finished! It was the last room in the house without hard-wood so we bit the bullet and got-er-done. And we couldn’t be happier with the way it turned out. The room always had a slight level change- but the previous owners just threw carpet over the whole thing. Now there’s an actual step in the room- which serves as the perfect divider. One side is my desk, and the other is lex’s play-kitchen, toys, and crafts. It still needs a little tweaking- some new lamps- more pictures, but the room looks massive now- i cant wait for christmas when we get to round out the room with an easel and dress up tower!!
