We are well into Christmas around here! Hudson told me the other day that this was his favorite time of year and I have to agree!
We actually put most of our Christmas decorations up before Thanksgiving this year. It was SO nice and I feel like we've gotten to enjoy it more this year than ever! And the best part was that we didn't come strolling into town after Thanksgiving and have to rush to get it all done. Maybe one of these days I will go around and take some pictures! I just love our house with Christmas up...I wish it could stay up all year. It's just so cozy!
I started the Christmas season with our annual girl's ornament swap. I had the BEST night I've had out in a while! So many laughs that night. I'm blessed to have all of these girls as sweet friends. They have really gotten me through so much and are just good for my soul.
Next up was Breakfast with Santa at Harrison's school. Harrison LOVES Santa this year. It's all he can really talk about. Everyday he asks if it is Christmas yet! All of his little stories these days are filled with, "What if Santa...." It is so cute, and makes this season that much more fun!
This is not Christmas related, but Hudson has now had 2 basketball games! He loves basketball. He just hasn't really figured out how to play it yet. :) Thankfully for everyone, while they do keep score, it is definitely not serious!
Last Sunday afternoon, my good friend Margaret had her annual gingerbread house decorating party. We had so much fun!
Margaret had them make 2 ornaments first, then do the gingerbread house, then they decorated cookies! Let's just say there was a lot of sugar consumed that afternoon!
Even Harrison had buddies there this year! It is so fun to see him develop friendships now! He's no longer having to try to keep up with the big boys. He has his own set to play with!
Thursday night was my work Christmas party. It was a Honky Tonk Christmas theme so we had to dress up. It was at Iron City and they had a country band playing. We had a great time! I have the best co-workers! We work hard and play hard!
Well that's it for the past couple of weeks! More fun to come in the next 2 weeks too! This is the last week of school and then we are ALL off for 2 weeks. It cannot get here fast enough!
