I should really be addressing my Christmas cards tonight so I’m going to try to make this quick. We had a fairly festive weekend, despite 2 of our 4 planned get-togethers being canceled due to puking kids (theirs, not ours). Then one of the children at the 3rd get-together was throwing up after we left. By Sunday morning, I felt doomed that we would be throwing up by the end of the day. So far, so good…knock on wood! It’s that time of year. As I selected and edited my pictures for this week, I realized that I’ve done an extra crappy job of taking photos of my kids lately. I will have to focus on that – it’s just getting hard to get a decent picture of them because it’s almost dark by the time we get home and the lighting is poor inside by then. Add in the fact that they rarely ever stop moving and well, it sucks. BOO winter!
Linking up with Mindi, Sarah, and Stephanie again this week for Catch the Moment 365.
337/365 – Wednesday, December 3rd: We always check the mail first thing when we get home. Theo LOVES to do this and he and Dexter literally race to the mailbox each day.
338/365 – Thursday, December 4th: We got all of our decorations up early this year, thanks to being home over Thanksgiving weekend. Love pulling up to this sight at the end of a work day! Our home looks so cheery and festive this time of year.
339/365 – Friday, December 5th. When our play date got canceled, Ryan suggested we go to the YMCA for a free gingerbread building activity. As you can see, it was very busy but also very fun. This was the first time I had ever built one, too!
340/365 – Saturday, December 6th. Our friends’ sweet 2 month old baby girl at their annual Festivus party. Good grief, she smelled amazing and is the best little cuddler!
341/365 – Sunday, December 7th: We celebrated our favorite little 6 year old’s birthday at a gymnastics party. She was over the moon excited and so adorable when we all sang happy birthday to her. She’s officially a big girl with a bunch of friends from school at her party. And PS, she designed her own cake! So super cute.
342/365 – Monday, December 8th: Playing with bokeh in my poorly lit living room. Ugh.
343/365 – Tuesday, December 9th. After failing to get any decent pics of my kids, I decided to take a picture of Theo’s choice for his ornament this year. I mean, he likes pizza and all but…okay. The randomness on our tree multiplies each year. I’ll have a pretty, themed tree one day. Maybe.
So that’s it for this week – maybe not the best pics ever, but they captured what we’ve been up to and that’s all that matters. I love the sweet little girls and I also love day 338 – our exterior lights at home. Which picture is your favorite this week?
