Only 3 Weeks Until Christmas!!

We decorated our Christmas tree last weekend, and I can say for the first time in years my kids helped decorate the tree and I did not rearrange a single ornament after they went to bed!  Not because they have become amazing tree-decorators or even learned to observe the rule that more than one ornament should not hang on the same branch, but because I do not care/do not have the energy or time to redecorate.  I'm not sure if this is a positive step forward, but I'm counting it as one!


I was vacuuming recently (hence the hose in the picture) and this hilarious sight showed up in my kitchen:

My youngest son wearing a purple tutu and purple hair bow!

When you are sandwiched between sisters, one big and one little, these things happen!


We took our Kapla Blocks on our roadtrip to relatives' for Thanksgiving and they were the perfect thing for cousins to join in on and to entertain the kids (and adults, too!) at grandparents house!  

The kids having a tower building contest:


Happy Friday, can you believe it's only 3 weeks until Christmas?!!!  If it makes you feel any better I have yet to order my Christmas cards, wrap a single present, or bake a cookie, but I DID get my car inspected only one day after the sticker expired, so I'm patting myself on the back none the less!

Half-Past Kissin' Time


  1. There is a store in downtown Charleston that sells the Kapla blocks and our grandsons had a wonderful time playing in their studio. DH got some great pictures as well.

  2. They're adorable, those kids, and the tree looks great to me :).
    I actually shopped for, wrapped, and shipped a whole family's worth of gifts this week. Now I'm all worn out!
    Thanks for linking up! Have a great weekend!

  3. Wow, awesome towers there. Your son is a good sport!


I'd love to hear what you think!
