I can't believe break is over! I am HATING not being at home with my cuties today, but I'm so excited to see my 100+ middle schoolers and my co-workers. I just wish I didn't have to wear real clothes :) hahaha
We hosted McAnally Christmas last Monday night and so Tuesday was the day to take down our decorations. I was going to leave them up through New Years, but the mood struck and so I ran with it. One last family picture in front of the tree!
This year I had three big helpers which made the process more fun.
I have TONS of ornaments and picks and all of that scattered through garlands and in jars and a few years ago I started putting them all away in in labeled gallon ziplock bags. This makes setting everything up so much easier!
SO PROUD to have conquered the step ladder ;)
Missing the twinkle lights, but feeling like I can breathe again.
So that ant farm that Mason got??? He's having the best time watching it.
Wednesday night we took my parents out to dinner and then went to Vitruvian Park in Addison to see the AMAZING lights.
The boys brought their scooters and had a blast getting to ride around the lake.
It was hands down the best lights display we've seen and we're adding it to our list of yearly traditions for sure!
GG and her Haha ;)
This deck was amazing!
The next morning was New Years Eve and GG and I wore #allthesequins ;)
We spent the rest of the day organizing and relaxing.
And playing kitchen.
We bundled up to run through Starbucks and grab some lunch from the club and then it was back home for more snuggle/pj time. My kind of day. :)
GG ended 2015 on a clean note...
... and me and the boys partied until about 11:30. #soclose
We kicked off 2016 with another relaxing day at home playing outside and building all the things ;)
This pretty much sums up the first day of 2016 :)
We finally put on real clothes on Saturday and Griffin and I ran to the mall to run a couple of errands. She LOVES babies and I had to pull her away from the baby area at Nordstrom.
and I sat in a chair at Altard States and watched her look at jewelry for a solid 5 minutes :)
It was a fun little mommy/daughter morning. She's been ATTACHED to my hip the past two weeks and I think that all of going back to routine is going to be toughest on her.
Sunday morning sillies :)
Excited to go to Gibi's house and AWANAS on Sunday afternoon.
I hope you all had a fantastic weekend and a GREAT Christmas break (if you got one!). We were blessed to have some relaxing family time and are rested and re-energized to head into 2016!
Don't forget, tomorrow is Show and Tell Tuesday and we're going to be re-introducing ourselves and talking about our resolutions for 2016.
