Friday Favorites

  Happy Friday, friends!!!    Erika and I are so excited that lots of y'all are linking up with us and if you're linking up with us make sure you grab our graphic, link back to one (or all!) of us and share your own Friday Favorites post.

Today I'm sharing what is possibly the MOST FESTIVE Friday Favorites EVER ;)  So much Christmas fun has been happening around here and I can't wait to share!

Last Saturday night was one of our very FAVORITE nights of the year - the downtown McKinney parade of lights!

The kids saw a few of their friends on floats...

... we saw Luke march with the high school band...

... and just had the best time with friends.

This is what happens when you see a guy with a TCU bumper sticker on his truck :)

Check out this handsome drummer pre-parade... so proud of him!

Me and my crazy crew heading downtown - loved having a couple of our FAVORITE bonus kids with us ;)

Our elf has been up to his regular antics which are always a FAVORITE...

... and dress up days for holiday showcase at dance this week were a FAVE as well.  Candy canes for acro...

... and winter wonderland for ballet.

Besties :)

More like it!

We had a middle school staff party earlier this week with a fun white elephant gift exchange, appetizer lunch (my FAVORITE!) and everyone brought packaged treats to share.  LOVE having a big ol' plate of yummies at home!

Rosie's FAVORITE spot to lounge is still by the tree...

... and last weekend we got to cheer on our very FAVORITE varsity soccer player at her first home game.  When your best friends sister has helped coach your football team for years you show up BIG to cheer for her!

And someone let these cuties run the hot chocolate stand :)  

Luke has had exams this week and our FAVORITE part is grabbing lunch together every day since we get early release.  He picks the place and I pay :)  

This puzzle was a FAVORITE last week....

... and a dinner party with some of our very FAVORITE people in the whole world was a highlight.

Jammies and Jesus at church is always a FAVE...

... and  this vest is my favorite weekend wear.

Seeing these cute girls on the deck was a FAVORITE...

... and so was watching Mason perform as a shepherd in the 5th grade nativity play.

Last night was the elementary Christmas program...

... and getting to see these two sing was so so so sweet.

So blessed by our school!


Whew! That was a whole lot of festive ;)  I'll be here on the blog next week and probably a bit the week after but this is going to be the last Friday Favorites for 2021!  Erika and I will be back sharing our FAVES starting on January 7th!

  1. If you go to the football game Saturday cheer for Ferris State. I sure wish I was in McKinney to watch.

  2. I love all of the festive pictures. I'm trying to fit in as much Christmas as possible. All of Griffin's outfits/dresses are so beautiful! I hope you all have a wonderful weekend!

  3. So, this was probably my favorite Favorites of the year. Love. Every. Single. Christmas. Memory. xx

  4. Wow! You really ARE my "neighbor"! We live in Fairview (and have a McKinney zip code, although our backyard tree line actually backs onto Lucas). Have a MERRY CHRISTMAS and a bountiful, healthy & HAPPY NEW YEAR!

  5. What a fun Christmas event and all the kiddos are so cute..especially the girlie in the pink beeny. Love it!

    Merry Christmas!

  6. When I saw Luke with his drums I teared up (and he's not my kid haha!)

  7. Love seeing all your Christmas fun!
