More Fun Leading Up to Christmas

More Fun Leading Up to Christmas

I know, Christmas is technically over. But I still have plenty of Christmas memories to recap!

One fun thing I wasn’t even there for (I was at a Christmas party and my mom had Remi) but I want to save the memory.  Mom took Remi to the Christmas parade, and they ran into one of my coworkers and her daughter. They hung out at the parade together and Remi thought Vivi was SO cool. She loves big kids. And when they started throwing candy, Remi realized she didn’t have pockets but Vivi did- and she was putting her candy in her pockets! ha!


Not technically a Christmas memory, but we had her friend Lyla’s birthday at the Monkey House and I was AMAZED at how brave Remi was!  As long as she was big enough to climb it, she went for it! She loved this big slide!


And she was SO GOOD during the presents. She just stood and watched. So big!


And of course, there were pink cupcakes.


Daddy got her swingset put together, so for a few days, she got to jump and slide and swing in the garage! She is LOVING having her own trampoline.  She asks to jump several times a day.


Auntie Paula sent her some fun Dr. Seuss books and this awesome Cat in the Hat hat. She LOVES it.


One evening, we decided to go to town to see the Christmas lights, and we also stopped by our Santa house to see the big man! Remi LOVES Santa, and she actually asked to go see him that night. I told her we were going to see Christmas lights, and she said “I see Santa?” Well, our town has a sweet Santa (run by some friends of ours) on the square in a little house- and there was no wait on this night, so of course, we let her see Santa!


After Santa, we saw the Christmas lights and the live nativity (which I thought we had missed, but they were making up days they had missed for the rain, so we got to see the donkeys and camels).

This season is so sweet with our girl- everything is magical in her eyes!

Merry Christmas From Us (Our Christmas Card)

Merry Christmas From Us (Our Christmas Card)

I say this every year, but it’s true: I LOVE Christmas cards. And I wish we could send one to every person we know and love (even you, dear reader!) but it’s just not possible.

So, please take this holiday wish and have yourself a merry little Christmas. 🙂

(also, technology problems….I couldn’t get the image to save, so I had to screenshot it. ha!)

25 Days of Christmas Outfits: Week 3

25 Days of Christmas Outfits: Week 3

Well, turns out we had enough Christmas clothes that we won’t have to repeat any outfits. ha! Thankfully so much of it should fit next year as well (so note to self: don’t buy any more Christmas clothes! ha!), but we are loving being so festive every day.

On Monday, it was warmer, so we wore her Christmas smock dress.  She liked her “orm-a-mens” on it.

Daddy got her ready for school a couple of days this week, and he took pics for me on those days.  Look at that big smile for Daddy!  And that cute red and green!


I was partial to this cute Santa stripe outfit. The stripes, the fur, the sequins….it’s perfect.


She wasn’t totally feeling the pictures, but agreed to take a pic with momma.  I love this Eleanor Rose jumper- but bless, it’s still too big and we had to tie up the back straps.


And Friday was a fancy day for school, but we wanted to wear her Nutcracker dress! She loved the tall socks with her boots, too!


Only 4 more days left to go!

More Christmas cutness!

She wore this Santa ensemble to meet the big man at the park!


Then we matched in Christmas floral…


Santa tutu dress (from last year!)


Reindeer and gold (easy clothes for gymnastics day at school!)


I LOVE this shirt. It’s really a size too big (so yay! We can wear next year) but A Christmas Story is so fun!


Blue with holly berries on this one! Those MJ big ruffles were so cute!


Some buffalo plaid pants (given to us by one of daddy’s coworkers!) and a cute Christmas shirt!


A super cute outfit (with piggy tail bows) for the Christmas parade!

And a Nativity dress for church.
