And last but not least, how fun is this for breakfast on Christmas morning!? I think even I can pull off this meal. :)
You all know how much I love a good Christmas card! In years past I’ve always displayed my cards on/around my pantry door –
or on my wall and in my aqua frame (full post here)…
I’m using painters tape this year btw. I used regular tape last year and the cards were dropping like flies. Drove me crazy!
I also love having our Christmas cards from past years on display. Fun to see how our family has grown. I need an updated picture with our latest cards. I also need a two year old who doesn’t want to tear stuff like this apart each year. Are you listening Santa? :)
Here are a few other fun ways to display Christmas cards…
And since I just ordered all of our outdoor lights for the new house today (I’ll have to share a pic of them!), above is a fun idea for how to spruce some of them up for Christmas next year!
I also loved this Christmas tree advent calendar for the kids to countdown till Christmas. So much more fun than the regular chain we usually make.
And on a totally separate note, today was such a fun day. Kole and the new house occupy most of my time and energy lately and I have been missing girl time with my girls. So I got a sitter for Kole and pulled the girls out of school at lunch time. We went to lunch together, just the three of us.
Then after we ate, we picked Kole up and went home and put him down for a nap and watched Miracle on 34th Street together under a blanket on the couch. It was the first time the girls have seen it and they colored during the too much talking parts. :) It was a perfect, relaxing afternoon and I loved having a little time alone with my girls. They talk my ear off and keep me pretty entertained. I think we need to make our lunch/afternoon date a tradition.
On our way to lunch we were all three walking holding hands and a sweet lady stopped us and said “oh you make me want to have little girls someday!”
