We have been having a FABULOUS Christmas vacation. We've been up with family all week long and we LOVE LOVE LOVE it! I apologize for the horrible picture, but it's honestly one of my favorites. Rob caught us just as we were coming down to see what Santa brought us. See that excitement on Evva's face? And on mine?

Santa and an elf of two made this little dollhouse just for Evva. She LOVED it! It came complete with little Hedgehog calico critters and some furniture with a fireplace that really works!

I had a chance to get together with my BFFs! I love these ladies so much! They are amazing examples to me and I'm so blessed to have them in my life. We've gotten older, gotten married and had kids, but no matter what, whenever we get together, it's like we never parted.

We have a problem...

Evva has decided that she will no longer just lay down for her nap. We have to snuggle. Not that I'm complaining, because she has never been this way. However, she has insisted we snuggle on this chair for the last week. Today after trying to lay her down and screaming for a good 20 min I noticed she needed her pants changed. After taking care of that, she RAN to the chair and continued whimpering. I stayed back to see what she did, she totally fell asleep. Until I tried to move her to her crib, at which point we started all over again. Needless to say, that is something we will be working on durning Christmas break.


Found this a Savers the other day for $5. Brought it home cleaned it up, threw a little throw pillow together and ta-da! New favorite chair in my home. The other favorite chair in my home was $5 too. Dude, I love me a deal.

Decking the halls

Sort of...I've been working like a mad woman and Rob is wondering when we'll take the kitchen back from the fabric and glue gun. But I was honestly so sick of so many of my Christmas decorations, so it was time to revamp. And I was feeling a little crafty {actually I totally needed a project} So I made this cute pillow and stockings and a few other little things that I will have to add later.

Rob asked that his had no there you go, how about a tree. I guess that's more masculine.

We did some family pictures before was super windy...but we got a few between wiping Evva's nose. {seriously, we're going on 3 weeks...chronic runny nose?}

And I took a few for my cute Grandparents...Evva just had to sneek in. {I love her shirt!}

And this folks was the highlight of the weekend...Evva had been playing hard for the last 2-3 days and was resisting naps. I tried to keep her awake for the big Thanksgiving day feast, but as soon as we sat down she grabbed my arm, snuggled up and FELL ASLEEP! This has NEVER come close to happening. My little munchkin was all tuckered out.
