what a crazy busy week!!

Some random pics from the last 10 days or so...it's been cRazY busy - thank goodness I've been on vacation this week, well, more like a staycation, but I don't think I would have been able to get everything done if I would have had to go to work too. So here's what we've been doing...

Creating...
{It was super fun to make this head wrap to match a cute spring dress in Grace's closet. Thank you, Noonie! And yes...trying to get a head start on Spring sewing!}
Indulging...
{Krispy Kreme...yummmm... snowmen for the littles and red velvet for the grown-ups.}
Sightseeing...
{We went on one of our many December drives to look at Christmas lights and this house was my favorite that night - just simple & elegant - love those wreaths!}
Playing...
{When we got home Grace insisted on recreating some of the Christmas displays we saw...here she is waddling like a penguin...silly pumpkin!}
Convincing...
{Batting those baby blues for Daddy so he would lift her up to touch some of the ornaments that are off-limit...apparently it works like a charm.}
Dreaming...
{Nutcracker, anyone?}
Dancing...
{Speaking of the Nutcracker...look who was so proud to show off her moves during observation this week.}
Snuggling...
{I know he's mine, but could he be any more snuggalicious in those dino pj's and wellies??? LOVE that sweet boy! And yes, wellies are his new accessory of choice...he he}
Boot loving...
{I think I could live in boots and jeans all winter...}
Swimming...
{Grace has been taking swimming lessons every week for the past year and a half, but we're taking a little break these next 3 months. By then I think Hudson will be able to take lessons at the same time and it will be much easier on us than trying to keep him entertained poolside. Grace loves the water and she's learned so much - she sure has come a long way from when she started and didn't even want to jump in without her teaching holding her hand! So proud of you, Grace!}
See you in March, Ms. Megan!Field trip taking...
{Do you know how hard it is to get a good picture of 13 wiggly boddies???? Aaaah!}
Cheer spreading...
{He gets so shy whenever he's giving a gift to his teachers!}
Decorating...
{I finally put all those sweet, vintage Shiny Brite ornaments to good use and made a fun wreath using
this tutorial. Bonus: my ornaments are now safely out of reach from curious little hands!}Cookie eating...
{Aren't those Santas cute?? No, I didn't make them!}
Grinch punch sipping...
{Minty green and frothy...a hit at the preschool party!}
Love giving...
{The little pumpkin's preschool class took a field trip to buy Christmas presents for the parents - more on that soon - and Grace picked out this sweet ring box for me!}
I hope you're finding JOY in big and little things this December!

Wow! What fun. And I'm missing our Krispy Kreme that is no longer here. Those snowman ones are so cute. My boys would LOVE them!

Oh, Sarah - no longer having a KK nearby may just be a blessing in disguise! I think I gain 5 lbs. every time we drive by - HA! Merry Christmas to you!
