Christmas Week

How was your weekend lovelies?  Ours was pretty busy.  The kids are home now and I have a feeling it will be a full on week.   Do you have anything special planned this week?  Or is it all hustle and bustle?  I have a few things to finish up and now it is onto the food portion of Christmas that I am concerning myself with.  But we are also taking the kids into the city and going to the art museum for the first time.  I’m really excited about this but I’m also trying not to have too high of hopes as in 2 babies are coming along.  I’m really looking forward to the older la la’s taking in some art though.  I hope everyone finds something that inspires them in one way or another.

The above is Elle’s Christmas dress (recycled from last year, actually).  I love the little combo and wish I could wear it myself.  And speaking of Ella.  Did you know that her little brother calls her “La La,” all on his own accord.

And as for the pink and the red, it is my color combo this year.  I’ve done very little decorating [a bit of decorating from a few years ago here].  I’m feeling pressure to keep on decorating this week but I’m also trying to convince myself that there isn’t much point now + it will only make for more taking down.  The ribbon at least made it to my tree.  However, I’m already excited about decorating possibilities for next year.

Happy Monday.  I’ll see you back here tomorrow, let’s talk Christmas cookies!
