It’s December 5th, which means we’ve been getting ready for Christmas around here for a couple weeks!
I love, love, love this time of year with my babies.
It’s just THE. BEST.
They are so excited about every, single, little thing! And it makes my crafty, party-throwing heart swell to be able to do all sorts of fun things with them during this time.
We’ve been having all sorts of fun already — here’s what it’s looked like:
Tom’s Lionel train set was the first thing we set up — before Thanksgiving. He’s been asking for it for about 9 months, so I was anxious to set it up, too! He LOVES it. And he quickly built an entire town for it. So, so, so happy!
On a rainy weekend, I made this Pinterest project — it’s a Pottery Barn knock-off! I guess PB was selling it for $130, but some clever person gave a tutorial for a $13 version, and that’s more my style so I tried it. 😉 I love it!
We met up with Tom’s buddy, Emma, who told him that she wanted to marry him. He put his hand on his head and said, “Ugh!” And she said, “Not right now! When we’re bigger!” When I brought it up to him the next day, he said, “I think I’m gonna hide when she’s grown-up-y.”
We rode The Pink Pig with Emma and her wonderful Mom! So happy to keep this tradition alive! We could do this over and over. Such a great day!
Our elf came back! And he brought breakfast and advent calendars! My favorite thing about this was that it was super easy — I had almost all of this already, the only thing I bought specifically for it was the doughnuts — and it looked impressive. My favorite! It was so cute and the kids just were bursting with joy. It was awesome.
We’ve been having a blast, and cannot wait for more!
Happy Christmas-time, y’all!
