Hello, December!

Friday, December 2, 2011

It's Friday,  friends.
Lately the weeks and days just seem to be flying by.
Before I know it the kids will be on break and I will be freaking out over all of the
shopping and baking and wrapping I still need to do.
Anyway, I finished the advent calendar for the kids right on time yesterday, on the first
day of December. Pictures to come later.
Man, this whole getting more organized thing is amazing.
By most standards I am not that organized at all, but by mine(which have been set pretty low)
I am getting pretty darn organized.

I let her bust the Christmas clothes out yesterday, I told her not until December because she was trying
to wear a Christmas shirt before Halloween.
And I just can't do that.

Love it.
Last night I was trying to talk the kids into seeing The Muppet Movie by showing them the
trailer on my laptop before bed.
They really don't seem that into it. I don't get it.
I mean, they would definitely go see it but I think I want to see it way more than they do.
Who doesn't love the Muppets?
Weird kids.

Mmmm hmmm... Martha who?
Yeah, that's kinda what I was thinking.
I made those yesterday and the kids got to have a special snack of cupcakes and hot
chocolate after school in celebration of the first day of December.

There's just a little bit of our week.
Tomorrow is our annual Christmas shopping trip to Chicago.
We take the train up, shop all day and get home late that night.
We do it every year... my mom, sister, niece, cousins, aunts and uncles....a big group of us.
I love this family tradition and when Miss Charlotte is a little older she will get to go, too.
Hoping for good weather tomorrow!
Happy Friday everyone, hope you have a great weekend.
