Insta-Friday #50

One year ago this week we received the most incredible early Christmas gift. We found out I was pregnant. We sat near our tree and said "this time next year, we'll be spending the holidays with a new baby. And here she is, more wonderful than we could have dreamed. Happy 4 months old baby Ellie.

A bunch of my church friends got the same great news at about the same time. :) 
A bunch of us. Elise has so many friends!

Spent one evening stringing fresh cranberries and watching "The Holiday". 
And no one bothered me. Like at all.

Got a REAL date night!!!! 

And an actual girls night! 
 I almost feel like a normal human being. 

Babies drive us a little bit crazy don't they. 

What I really want for Christmas, besides peace on earth, good will towards men and a white Christmas, is for my baby to sleep longer than 30 minutes at a time for naps. I swear if she would sleep for two hours straight during the day. I could rule the world. Or at least take a shower, brush my teeth and clean the kitchen up.

A snowy day calls for sleeping in a bit, taking a late day to second grade and getting some scones and peppermint hot cocoa. 

Got to Lydia's school Christmas concert an hour early to get a seat and there were already about 30 people there! Still got a great seat though. A lot of people didn't even make it into the auditorium doors. Lydia had kept it a surprise that she was playing an instrument. She did great. 
Not sure how socks became part of her outfit.

Elise's first Christmas ornament arrived. The year is stamped on the back of the holly. Love it. 

Countdown to Santa! I'm SOOOOO excited!!!!

What a beautiful family you have! And I love that you are so real - being a mom is so hard. We can get so lost in the mix of everything - glad you got some time to just be you this week. Merry Christmas!
