Good morning friends and happy Friday! Oh and Christmas weekend! It is officially here and I can’t believe it! Have you finished your shopping? I have two more gifts left to get for the little guy and then I will be done (I think…and hope)! We are keeping the gifts light this year. Since he’s only 2.5 and doesn’t really understand Christmas yet, we figured he doesn’t need much. He loves his trains and cars and he has so many already! We did get him this scooter which I am excited to see him learn how to ride it and I will be braving Ikea tomorrow to pick up this train set and this easel.
When deciding what to wear for the pictures, I knew I wanted something more casual. I am more of a separates girl than a dress girl. Give me a good pair of jeans and heels over a dress. I had spotted this bell sleeve top in Loft a few weeks before we took the pictures and knew that the pink color would be perfect. I try to not over think it and knew that Andrew would be wearing a blue shirt so the colors went well together. Dockery was easy with a neutral color sweater and jeans. I really like how our pictures turned out this year!
I am really looking forward to the next few days! Christmas Eve will be spent at my brother-in-laws house and I will be making a big pot of gumbo! We will go to church on Christmas Eve and Christmas day will be spent at home with just the 3 of us, most likely in our pjs all day! This will be new to us this year and I am welcoming the quiet, relaxing day with open arms. There will be no rushing to make it to one house and then on to the next.
Since we will be spending Christmas day at home, I will be cooking! Ahh! Where do I even start? What are some of your favorite recipes for Christmas dinner? Let me know! I would like to do something different than we normally do for our week night dinners.
And the winners are…..
The top picture made the front and this bottom picture was on the back. I love how our Christmas cards came out this year! I came across our Christmas card from last year and I could not believe how identical they were. I guess when you like a certain style, you stick with it.
Loft is still 50% off yall! And I saw this morning you get an extra 10% off when you purchase online and pick up in the store with code RIGHTNOW! Here’s some last minute gifts if you are still looking! I saw this initial necklace in the store and almost picked one up for myself!
