Week 49

Good morning and happy Tuesday! It's starting to look a lot like Christmas around here.  We had a busy weekend getting the house all decorated and now the boys are really excited and pumped about the holidays.  Only 2 weeks of school left, and you can bet they are counting down the days ;0)

Here are last week's pictures:

Day 334- Monday, 11/30/15
I love that he's not too old for this.  Blanket forts still exist in my house and Brandon is loving the one he created on the bunk bed.  That's his gaming, reading, and sleeping fort.

Day 335- Tuesday, 12/1/15
Happy December!  I still can't believe we are here already.  Scout our Elf on the Shelf is back and ready for business posing with my monthly marker.

Day 336- Wednesday, 12/2/15
Yay! Tyler finally got his truck back with a fresh coat of paint and no more dings or scratches.  It turned out great and looks like new.  They told us it would take 7-10 business days but it was more like 14! so he's super excited to have his ride back.

Day 337- Thursday, 12/3/15
Justin picked up a couple friends when he sat down for his after school snack today.  Crazy pets actually think they might get something. Ha!

Day 338- Friday, 12/4/15
I'm spending my Friday afternoon in the Booster's snack bar at a basketball tournament, and tomorrow morning I'll be working the Booster's craft fair.  I'm putting in my hours and helping earn money for the kids and their sports.

Day 339- Saturday, 12/5/15
We picked out our Christmas tree this afternoon.  For our house we need tall and skinny--it can't be too wide or full and this one fit the bill.  It took us all of 10 minutes pick out and pay for it.  Great thing about Tyler having a truck is that we can just throw it in the back and not worry about tying it to the roof like we usually do.  Score!  Back at home we got as far as putting the lights on and hanging the stocking.  Poor Bella usually gets a bit displaced because of the tree every year, but she'll adjust.

Day 340- Sunday, 12/6/15
This morning the kids enjoyed a cocoa party thanks to Scout and afterwards they took turns helping trim the tree.  Each one has his own box of ornaments to add.  It was a nice way to spend a rainy day.

That's it. Thanks for stopping by and see you next week.


  1. Your hair looks especially pretty in the selfie you took at the Booster's snack bar.

    Those Santa hat Hershey kisses are TOO CUTE!!! :)

    Your elf on the shelf is way more generous than ours. Ours just moves places each night and brings a little felt ornament to add to our nativity countdown.

  2. The house looks great! The hat kisses are adorable!!

  3. Where did you find those hat kisses? So cute! Your tree looks great. Love the pets eyeing that snack. Looks like a fun week. Hope your next one is good!

  4. Your Christmas tree looks great! That cocoa party is a fabulous idea! My kiddos would definitely love that!
    Great photo of you in the snack bar -- love your curls!
