Random Friday


Ann's annual "Favorite Things" party was tonight!  Woot woot!  I just got back and I'm worn out from chatting the night away.  I think I may have lost my voice.  Again.  Time to whip out the lemon water.  And time to share the favorites with all of you!  (Coming soon!)  Oh my word.  Everyone brought GOOD stuff this year!  I'm so excited about the three items I brought home and there are about ten more items I'm absolutely going to buy.  Great gift ideas!  I love this party.  

We pulled out our Christmas movies this week!  I'm so proud of myself for holding off this long.  I was hoping they would entertain Kole a little better than they have.  Turns out he isn't all that into Barbie's version of A Christmas Carol.  What's up with that?  :)

He'd much rather watch Peppa Pig or Sword in the Stone.  I love this picture of him watching Sword in the Stone at my mom's.  I love that he is watching one of my favorite movies.  I love the intent little look on his face.  I love that he is sitting in a chair from my childhood.  I love that his little feet aren't touching the ground.

 Our Elf will make his first appearance on Saturday!  My girls are so excited they can hardly stand it.  

And aside from a few things I have to do, my weekend plan is to finish up Christmas decorating and enjoy reading this new magazine I just picked up.  Christmas decor and gift ideas?  Amazing kitchens? Aqua ornaments adorning the tree?  I have a feeling I'm going to enjoy it.  :)

Happy almost December everyone!

It looks like the Favorite Things party was fun. Love your smiles. I can't wait to hear about it. I am having mine this weekend. The house is decorated and ready to go. I can't wait. Love a girls night.

I have to agree, the picture of Kole is adorable.

Enjoy watching your Christmas movies. We have been watching them as well.

It really is the most wonderful time of the year!!

The Favorite things party is a great idea! Can't wait to see the items everyone brought.
Thats such a cute picture of Kole watching the movie. When my son was Koles age he LOVED the movie called "Elmo saves Christmas"... We watched that SO many times lol.

Cheryl - I love your sister! She is my therapist! I had so much fun chatting with her last night. :)

Reenie - Elmo Saves Christmas! Haven't heard of that one but I'm going to check it out! Kole loves Elmo. :)
Thanks for the tip!

Wonderful post! I have a question that's really off topic. I just thought of it when I saw the picture of Kole in the post. I have a terribly picky eater, do you have any tips? I know you have three youngsters so if you have any ideas/tips that would be so greatly appreciated!

Cheryl said...

I'm jealous you got to chat with her! I miss her :)

Can you talk about how the Favorite Things party was done? I know it wasn't your party, but I am so thrilled to try something like this in the future and I'd love to see how this one was done because I'm stuck on the "how" of it all. Thanks!
