~and you gotta love Gap pants! Especially when they are on sale!
~who else is having a great sale??? I must not look.
Oh, Christmas is over can't believe it! Having my & Paul's family over for Christmas as always was fun and went by too fast. Everyone has spoiled us..even Dinah our doggie. Much yummy food to eat. The kids had fun opeing presents and mot knowing what to do with themselves. One thing(just one?)I did not get to was--> not getting to bake this new cookie recipe...all I need to say is the main ingredients included brownies, peanut butter, rice krispies & marshmallows...and now I will have to put it off until April! I am determined to go on a diet until my birthday(with a quick hiatus on Heart day). Yeah we'll see!
ahhhh! I still have yet to finish my shopping! Well, this weekend hopefully....on the plus side I have been getting awesome deals on gifts with 50% off sales.
We went to see Santa and Avery was not having it. I need to post the photo- so funny. She is screaming and Bryce looks unaffected as my friend Pamela put it. Bryce asked for a Lego pitstop thingee that is like for ages 7+. Paul is oh so excited about the 500+ pieces. I am excited about the perfect fit for avery's mouth. Did we try to talk him out of it...oh no, we went and bought it from Santa.
Hope you are finishing up last minute to-dos!
must say....Welcome to the world Ava!!!
tree update: not too good, but still looks nice!
I forgot about posting this pic~ it cracks me up with the bows she put on her sippy. btw, the unwrapping is from my friends' kids and mine annual Christmas exchange. They gave us the best gifts!
why does the preview look better than the actual post?
where are you? We went to 3 tree farms the first weekend in December and we could not find one tree that was our type !! We really wanted a tree..so as the sun went to sleep, we headed to Home Depot for our tree. Bryce was excited to decorate. I love the ornaments that I used to have on my tree growing up. My mom now has a tree that rivals any Festival of Trees tree, so a few years ago I had taken all my favs. Here is one that my parents had when they were newlyweds. Somehow Avery has let the tree be, so everything is still intact...now how long will the needles last?
There is so much to do around town! This year was Avery's first for riding the pink pig..still Rich's Pink Pig(sorry Macy's). Last weekend we had fun at Stone Mountain's Holiday lights extravaganza. yum kettle corn! It was another mild night...I love it!
