What We're Eating This Week
When we're home during the week I feel like all they do is eat :) We've been sticking to our "little bits of lots of things" mentality with a HEAVY dose of snacking mixed in. And it's even better than normal because we're using Santa plates!
What I'm Reminiscing About
These sweet boys!!! This was at last year's Christmas program...
... and the Kindergarten cuties at this year's performance.
Oh. My. Word.
What I'm Loving
When Dave and I bought our first couch I bought a set of colored dinnerware from Pier One that I have LOVED! But... I've been itching for a set of solid white that I can use with a bunch of pretty (and random) dessert plates. I ordered this set of white dinner plates and this set of salad plates and I'm IN LOVE!!! Because of the price I was a little worried they weren't going to feel substantial - but they're great!
What We've Been Up To
Yesterday we spent a solid 3.5 hours at Playstreet and I had to drag them out in order to get to speech on time.
They have tons of different toys/sensory items that they rotate out and my kids were infatuated with this play foam. I'm done with stockings, but ordered a few sets for Valentines or Easter baskets or such.
There were encased bugs that Griffin was ALL ABOUT!
And the moon sand table was a hit as well.
Everyone in their element :)
What I'm Dreading
Taking down my Christmas decorations!!! I'm usually a "when it's over it's over" kind of a girl, but I may just leave them up a little bit longer this year.
What I'm Working On
Let's Talk Tuesday prompts!!! If you have an idea for something we can show and tell about in 2017 shoot me an email (email@example.com) or leave a comment below! I've had several people make suggestions and they have been WONDERFUL!
What I'm Excited About
All things Christmas!!! Today is our "baking day" and last night we grabbed ice cream and headed out to look at lights. We're planning on heading to Deerfield tonight, but last night stopped by a house in Prosper and Oh. My. Word!!! It's all set to music and is INCREDIBLE!!!
(I took a few videos and posted them on my Instastory if you're interested) :)
And here are a couple of pictures from their website...
The best part is that they collect money for an organization that supports the families of law enforcement officers killed in the line of duty.
If you're in North Texas I HIGHLY recommend checking it out!
What I'm Watching/Reading
Luke finished the first Harry Potter last week and he is officially in love! I'm reading it as well so we can talk about it :) I haven't ever seen the movies or read the books and so it's fun experiencing it all for the first time together. I'm also reading Girl On The Train (I know... I'm officially the LAST person to read it).
What I'm Listening To
We're STILL listening to Frozen over here, but if we're going to listen to it we LOVE the Pentatonix version...
I'm almost too embarrassed to post this because the video is so incredibly ridiculous, but this song gets me every time. Every. Single. Time.
And my FAVORITE version of my FAVORITE Christmas song. LOVE!!!
What I'm Wearing
Nothing worth noting :) Lots and lots of sweats and PJs.
What I'm Doing This Weekend
CHRISTMAS!!! I feel like we're at the peak of Christmas magic around here and I can't wait to soak it all up!
What I'm Looking Forward To Next Month
I typically consider the beginning of the school year my "new year" (I'm perpetually stuck on an academic calendar), but I do love the "fresh" that comes in January. A clean house, a clean slate and (fingers crossed!) the possibility for snow.
What Else Is New
Nothing much! Soaking in Christmas BREAK ;)
What's my favorite memory from 2016
There are so many!!! I think my favorite though was moving. Which sounds weird since it was seriously the pits and exhausting emotionally and physically BUT it was such a momentous event for our family and the start of a new chapter.
