Week 50

Welcome back and happy Tuesday!  It's been super cold and wet here lately, but we are getting a few breaks between systems which is nice.  There has also been a lot of morning fog which makes for an interesting commute.  Winter is most certainly here and Christmas is around the corner.  Nope--still not ready but getting closer.

Here are last week's pictures:

Day 340- Monday, 12/5/16
Scout, our elf, found some Santa Hat Kisses to share with the boys and we finally dug out our Christmas count down gadget to help us keep track of the days left--fewer that I would like!

Day 341- Tuesday, 12/6/16
After school today we focused on getting ornaments put on the tree.  Each of the younger boys added there own ornaments and we're saving Tyler's for him to add when he returns later this week.

Day 342- Wednesday, 12/7/16
There was so much rain today and I had to run between buildings all day at work which was no fun in this weather.  Thank goodness for winter boots, warm sweaters, and hooded rain jackets.

Day 343- Thursday, 12/8/16
This cat has been pretty feisty lately.  He's loving the tree and all the other decorations to mess around with and of course both the pets are happy for the fire on these cold rainy nights.

Day 344- Friday, 12/9/16
He's back!  Tyler flew in around 7:30 tonight and of course the first order of business once he got home was food.  I kind of expected him to have eaten already, but he didn't have time at the airport. Now with my boy safely home and it being Friday it's time for me to relax with a festive drink and celebrate my full house at the start of the holiday season.

Day 345- Saturday, 12/10/16
On these wet and dark winter days the lighting in my house is less than optimal for pictures, but I do like how the poor lighting created this silhouette shot of Tyler as he worked on decorating the tree with his ornaments.  Now it's officially done and looks great!  Later John and I went to dinner and a movie.  It was a strange movie too--so many unanswered questions.  I'm not sure if I liked it or not, but dinner was good and it's always fun to get out with my guy.

Day 346- Sunday, 12/11/16
In between loads of laundry I banged out Christmas cards chaecking one more thing checked off my to-do list.  John was also busy outside finishing up those lights he started last week and this time had better success.  The lights work and look great.  This completes our holiday decorating and it feels good to be done so we can now enjoy the beauty of it all. 

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


  1. So glad Tyler is home! Enjoy!!!! Miss A gets home Friday and we can't wait! Love the decorating the tree photos! Out side lights look great too!
