This week has flown by! The weather this week has been crazy! The high was 80℉ yesterday and it is going to only get to 28℉ tomorrow and we are iced in for the day. We will be spending the day in our pjs, drinking hot chocolate, listening to Christmas music, and decorating our gingerbread house. Sometimes it is nice to have a forced day off!

Here is a little of what we have been up to this week.

Olivia loves to run and give hugs. She has also started yelling, “Love you!” when we leave or it is time for bed. Melt. My. Heart. I love that girl! And I love baby pigtails!

Hannah lost her first tooth this week! And, we don’t know what happened to it. We think she was eating an apple slice, mistook it for a hard piece of the apple and spit it out in the trash. Regardless, the tooth fairy still came!


The Christmas tree is up and decorated! And the stockings were hung on the kitchen island… so we don’t have a fireplace but it works! The wagon is full of Christmas books, stuffed animals, and our Little People Nativity.


Buddy has been back this week and has been making mostly good choices. He even brought Hannah some Elf School Work from the North Pole to finish! (He found this great math/ reading pack here!)
