At 3:00 today our Christmas Break officially begins – WOOHOO!!
Time to jump right into this weeks Friday Favorites…
If you have been reading my blog on a weekly basis you would know that we were suppose to have our family pictures taken last month. We had to reschedule and then the photographer no showed us at the rescheduled time!!! So we found a new photographer and she is amazing. We had our family pictures taken last Saturday and the temp was 32!! We were all dreaming of a beach vacation, praying that would keep us warm.
Tonight Danny and I are going to his company Christmas party. The last time we went to a fancy Christmas Party was when Danny worked for Ernst and Young (2005). We look so young and carefree!
I had a hard time deciding what to wear. I ordered two different dresses and I am really leaning towards the first one that has all of the lace.
However, I thought this dress was really cute. Very Aubrey Hepburn.
I had the same problem when it came to the shoes. I bought a pair of plain black heels…
But more than likely I will wear this fun pair of red and black plaid shoes…
Tomorrow we are taking a break from basketball and will be watching Kate in her first ever VOLLEYBALL Tournament. She has been dying to play volleyball and she finally has her big day tomorrow. She has been working so hard on her skills. We can’t wait to cheer for her and the team on in the morning.
Since 2011 we have hosted a Cookie Decorating Party at our house the week before Christmas. I make 6 to 8 dozen sugar cookies and a butt load of homemade frosting. All of the kids have so much fun decorating and eating the cookies. This party is not for the faint at heart because it is down right crazy! We typically have 15 to 20 kids in our house decorating cookies. However the older the kids get the more fun it gets.

We had to cancel the cookie party that year because the girls got the flu!! We had 6 dozen cookies to decorate and hand out to neighbors and friends.

This past Wednesday I was able to sneak away and go help with Abigail’s holiday party. When you are in 2nd grade at our school you don’t have a holiday party on the last day before Christmas break, they have an all day party called – Holidays Around The World. They learn about how others around the world celebrate Christmas.
Well that’s a wrap for this week. I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend and thanks for spending time with me!! Make it a fantastic weekend.
