I have taken a little break the last couple of days just because I've been busy with work ... but today I am taking the day off and catching up on things around the house, wrapping some Christmas presents, etc :)
Does anyone else besides me LOVE to wrap Christmas presents?
I am obsessed!
It's calming kinda and I like to just see the progress made of all the pretty presents under the tree!
I love for everyone to have their OWN wrapping paper ... it's fun and just is exciting to me!
This year for the kiddos (and Chris ha) they will each have their own wrapping paper as usual,
No one will know which paper is theirs until Christmas day!
I love it ... everyone will be dying to know lol a little suspense never hurt anyone ;)
Before I reveal my Christmas Wishlist,
Here is a little of what I was up to the past few days ...
Happy 1st Birthday Mack!
One of my best friends, Kelly, had a super fun and cute 1st birthday party for this sweet baby boy ...
My gifts were a hit ... I got him what any good Aunt would get him ... a grocery buggy and a cleaning set complete with a Swiffer and all hahaha! He loves brooms and vacuums, etc so I thought it would be perfect!
Kelly made cute little gift bags ... had TONS of food and Sesame Street appropriate snacks ;)
Cake time is where the fun began ...
What a good sport his dad is .... wearing a Cookie Monster shirt haha :)
There were a millions babies the same age there!!
Kelly and I came up the cutest little "Favorite" board for some pictures he is having this week ..
How cute is that?
Next up ...
Face timing with my 88 yr old Papaw!
Hahaha I love this ... I will forever keep this picture close to my heart ...
you gotta love technology these days!
He thought this was the craziest thing he had ever seen.
My Papaw is funny, and I mean like "have you in stitches, you can't believe he just said that" FUNNY!
If you are new around here, you can check out some amazing Papaw-isms HERE :)
Enjoy. Ha. Love him.
Yesterday I went to a Realtor lunch for the Young Realtors of the Bluegrass at our local board
and was AMAZED at all the toys we raised for children for Christmas!!
Awesome. No words. So great!
So glad to be a part of a community where all of us Realtors can come together and help others. #Blessed.
Lastly on the home front,
Ella's first Violin Concert
Last night we went to hear her first performance on the violin...
who knew Hot Cross Buns could be so cute?
(Did that just take you back to middle school? It did me ha.)
Love her. She's amazing. That's all :)
She did such a good job, so proud of her! It takes strength to perform in front of a room of people when you're in the 4th grade and she did amazing! <3
Tis' the Season ...
Everyone keeps asking me what I want for Christmas ... my parents, Chris, my brother, ...
which is so sweet and I love them ...
but I honestly have not been able to think of much because I just really don't need anything!
(no I am not running a temperature for those of you who know me well ha)
However, I did come up with a few things once I really put my mind to it ;)
(Didn't take long for me to pop off some things don't worry lol)
