It's Christmas Time!

I can't believe Christmas is already here!

This year has flown by. 

We had Christmas parties the past two weekends and finally Christmas festivities with family this weekend. Where has December gone?!

Our last day of school was on Tuesday and it was a crazy busy, and fun-filled day! I love seeing the kids so happy when they open their gifts and have holiday parties with their classmates. Not to mention,  how much I loved just seeing their sparkling eyes Monday morning after the horrific events in Connecticut. Makes you appreciate all the little moments in the classroom... 

I have spent the last two days running errands ALL over Lexington doing some last minute Christmas shopping. I LOVE getting gifts for others, but sometimes the stress wears me out of whether or not they will like the gifts!!! That's when I end up going out to buy a gift card. Anyone else love getting gift cards to places you know they will use- like Starbucks! I mean who wouldn't love a Starbucks gift card?!

While I've been busy shopping, Perry's been at daycare. They gave me this picture yesterday when I picked him up and I about died. How precious is this?!?!

(I'm not quite sure where his ears are... ha!)

Beats our picture we had with Santa last weekend... 

I woke up this morning and took Perry out and realized it FINALLY snowed AND was sticking to the ground. I love when it snows, and what a great way to kick off Christmas weekend :)

Our Christmas festivities start tomorrow morning, so I'm off to finish wrapping gifts and meet some friends for a lunch date. My other favorite thing about breaks from school - lunch dates!!! 


  1. Wow, looks like you guys had a lot more snow than we did. Not a lot was sticking to the grass at my house, but my street was slick. I like your outfit in those first two pictures! :)

  2. Perry's picture is so cute!! I missed the snow in Lex because we went to SC to visit my boyfriend's mom! So sad.

  3. Have you ever considered publishing an ebook or guest authoring on other blogs?
    I have a blog based upon on the same ideas you discuss and would
    love to have you share some stories/information. I know my audience would appreciate your work.
    If you are even remotely interested, feel free to shoot me an e mail.

  4. It's really very complex in this active life to listen news on Television, therefore I only use the web for that purpose, and get the most recent news.
