A Holiday Hodge-Podge Post

It’s December 10th and I just realized that I still had a November banner up. Agh. I guess I was looking at so much Christmas in this house and online that I just never looked up to the top of my blog.  But I got that fixed now. check-check.

Our Christmas tree is in front of two windows, its making for some difficult pictures. IMG_5272IMG_5448IMG_5453

But in my sentimental sappy stage I did have fun pulling out the ornaments from years past. It’s amazing to see the growth from year to year. I might even head to Hallmark to get the most precious Baby’s First Christmas ornament. Just to start the Chunk off right.


The first thing I try to turn on each day. Such a beautiful scene.


Snippets from our home.


The other day this was going on. One kid on one computer, the other on another computer. And the rightful owners are not sitting in front of either.

IMG_5297I thought real quick, took a picture with my phone and sent it off to my parents, “Dear Santa, We need an IPad2.” I thought I was funny. I thought my Dad would foresure reply with some smart remark. Instead, my mom texted back, “Return to Sender. Santa lives at the North Pole.” Ha.

Big Smile alright. Christmas shopping is just about done. And that’s only half the boxes. My UPS man loves me. I’m keeping him employed. My husband loves me, he needs to stay employed.


I had a coffee date with a dear friend this week. It had been way too long since we had gotten to hang out and chat. I love dear friends. I love coffee drinks. Although, technically mine wasn’t coffee.I had a Peppermint Hot Chocolate. Yummmm-O. She had the White Peppermint Mocha. Smelled divine.


Good week. And now we’re one week closer to Christmas. Can you believe it?

Are you ready?

While reading you had coffee with a friend, my first thought was "Maybe it was Casey!" and then I read that your friend drank coffee & she was no longer a candidate. ;) Your boys are so stinkin cute! Matthew is growing into a little heartbreaker more every day. :)

LOVE the new header! And the peeks inside your "Christmasy" home. My grandma made a ceramic tree just like that with the tiny little lights....I miss it. Your Nativity is beautiful.
have a happy night

I love your sweet baby in the box with his hat on. Cutest picture ever! Love your nativity too. I think nativities are my favorite part of Christmas. :)

Is it a good thing or bad thing that my UPS man knows my kids, and they know him by name? I keep our UPS man employed too, his wife appreciates it! I love Starbucks with friends too, and just hanging out in jammies...need to do it more often! :)
