weekly highlights

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas out there! Yesterday my little man and I hopped on a school bus and went to the Festival of Trees with his kindergarten class. It was so much fun! He wrote a letter to Santa, decorated a tree, made a gingerbread man, and we looked at all the beautiful trees and gingerbread houses. I wasn’t feeling festive before this, but I am in it now! Unfortunately our trip was a little rushed as the roads were awful and it took us a lot longer to get there than anticipated, so I am really looking forward to going next year as a family and taking our time.


Cordelia and Daddy stayed home but it’s been a few weeks since I did a weekly highlights post so I wanted to include a pic of her too. ♥

We will be spending this weekend decorating and getting ready for the holiday season (I think a tiny little elf might be making an appearance). Are you ready for the holidays? What are your plans for the weekend?

  2. My week-end plans consists of endless parties and entertaining. Our home will be happy to see my two nephews visiting 🙂 Kids, pets, relatives, and friends….ahhhh love all the get togethers happening during the Yuletide season! 🙂

  3. I love the Olaf display! This time of year is so special–your kids look incredibly excited! We haven’t started decorating for Christmas yet since we’re going out of town (to DISNEY WORLD!) but I can get excited for the season through posts like this!
