More bundled up fun at the park

It was chilly again yesterday. (YES!)

We went to the park in the morning and met up with our friends.

Lily, Sofia and Dylan were so fun to watch.

They are totally aware of one another now and they are so funny!

I got a little Christmas shopping done also.

Can you believe Christmas is in 17 days?

I can’t!!!!

I have to get all my shopping done this week because we are leaving for West Virginia on the 16th and there will be no shopping after that.

That means only 8 days!!


Oh! And don’t forget to enter the GIVEAWAY!

Claudia took all the kids because she was freezing!


The weekend

I hope you all had a great weekend.

It was a good and mellow one here. (still trying to recover from our month in Portugal and our trip back)

Our weekend started friday with AMW’s 1st birthday party. We know AMW through the library.

Her party was at the beautiful Emanu-El Temple near our house.

There was arts and crafts, lots of toys and kids for Lily to play with and there was sing along also! (even though it was in Hebrew, that didn’t stop Lily from dancing!)

Both Lily and I had a great time.

On our ride home, we stopped off to look at my favorite Christmas tree.

I don’t really know why it’s my favorite tree.

There is nothing really special about it, really. It is mostly lights.

I think the reason I like it so much is because through the years that I was working, on the way home, I would ride past it and it would just give me a warm Christmas feeling.

It was the first real time that Lily saw a Christmas tree. (last year doesn’t really count since she was not even 2 months old)

She was fascinated by all the lights.

Saturday night we went out to dinner and stared at the beautiful full moon.

Did everyone have a chance to see her? She has been just amazing lately.

On sunday, while I did some things around the house, Will took Lily to the beach.

It had been a little over a month since she had been there and even though the water is definitely colder, you know her, she had to get in it.

She can now walk herself to the water. Watch out!!

Hope you all have a great week.

Happy monday!!! 🙂 (can’t believe Thanksgiving is this thursday)

getting crafty with it


Christmas wish listing

Is it too early to start making a Christmas wish list?

Is it ever too early? 😉

Just in case Santa drops by here, here are some things I’m drooling over:

Let’s start with these. LOVE!

These are just too cute!

These are awesome for serving olives and such.

Even Will would love these.

I love the snowman.

Owls!!! Either one will do.

I have LOVED these forever. They are so delicate and beautiful!

I love vases.

I know, most of those are household decorative items, but I’m thinking house soon so… (I know the house is in Raleigh, NC but, it’s everything we think of when we think of a house)

Now decorations for meeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee! 😉

I think these would look just rockin’ hanging on my ears.

Soooooo comfy!

Everyone needs these. Including me.

Yes please.

So pretty.

YES! YES! YES! PLEASE! Obsessed with these. Seriously!

Have you ever seen anything like these? I want them!

I miss smelling like this. (I actually use the bath oil as perfume oil)

Totally cute and fun.

For when it snows in Miami. lol

And that’s really all I can think of for now…. 😉

Poor Santa!

I’m just wishing…..
