Caroline’s 5th birthday party is DONE! Today, she and I went to see The Nutcracker done by the ballet company where she takes ballet. Next Saturday, on her actual birthday, we’re going on the Polar Express to see Santa at the North Pole. I’d say she’s turning 5 absolutely in style. This last week was crazy but now it’s over and all I have left on the to do list is wrap one million presents before Christmas.
Tree decorating at church
Making lemon curd
They look so nice, but they’re terrors
E’s favorite method of babywearing
Trying to see how close he can stand to the edge without falling off
So, Many. Desserts.
Santa baby thinks he looks HILARIOUS
PARTY MENU PREVIEW
Never tired of looking at our tree
So dark, no one wants to get up in the morning
Who needs a coat, it’s only DECEMBER.
Grandparents are so good at reading
The day started a little foggy
But the sunset was pretty spectacular
Like I said, grandparents are super good at reading
Babies are very helpful when it comes to setting up bounce houses
DECEMBER BIRTHDAY IN NEW ENGLAND WHAT
Such a super fun day with my girl!
Because my parents are the best, almost all of the party stuff is already cleaned up and my only job is eating leftovers. And maybe making time in my schedule for some exercise, because it’s too nice outside for me to already gain my winter hibernation weight. I should go jog on the beach or something. As much as I love the idea of a White Christmas, the longer it stays mild the lower our heating bill and the less school the kids miss and I don’t want to sell them to the circus.
Stay tuned for an epic party post – the photos are done so all I have to do is get them (and the links to alllll the places I ordered from) into a post!
