It’s been a little while, so I thought a little post highlighting our December was in order.
I’ve recently decided to take at least one day a week to devote to “no work”. Things have been busy lately, we are in big growth mode and it feels like we are working non-stop. So, tonight instead of working, this post is going down.
The same weekend as my mom’s craft show, Tucker lost his top front tooth. That is tooth number three & his fourth one (the other top one, might fall out in time for him to sing “All I want for Christmas is my two front teeth….”)
The one thing I do miss about teaching is seeing my kids all day around school & getting to steal little moments of their day with them. I used to eat lunch with Tucker at least once a month (if not more) and last week was the first time I had lunch with the girls.
My most talented friend, Takara, performed in a Christmas show last week that raised money & toys for the Harbor House. My #realhousewivesocfl girls and I decided to surprise her, making it a girls night out for all.
Visiting Santa was a complete bust this year. We went to Bass Pro on a Sunday night, around 7pm, thinking the line would be just a few kids deep. Ha. That thing was practically wrapped all around the store. So, we’ve got a picture with a pretty tree this year instead.
Ofur high school alma mater made it all the way to state this year in football. We headed to the Citrus Bowl to cheer them on (& watch them get creamed by the competition). It was brutal, but still lots of fun. I love my family.
Mike’s company Christmas party was this past Friday night. It’s nice to get all dressed up every once in a while and head out on the town with this guy (sans kids). We even got in the rest of our Christmas shopping (well, almost all of it) at Target afterwards thanks to the extended shopping hours.
My friend, Nicolette, and I have been hosting a #holidayshowoff on Instagram. Today was “from the kitchen” and I think it was my most favorite to join in because I absolutely LOVE my kitchen at Christmas.
Well, that’s that. Our December in a nutshell. I love & hate this time of year. So much to do but just not enough time to do it. & I really cannot believe that 2015 is just weeks away.
