Gearing Up

We've been so busy getting ready for Christmas this weekend! There were lots of last minute things to do, but we still managed to have some fun, too. I hardly touched my camera, though!

On Friday morning, Lily and I finished Christmas shopping while the big kids were at school. She is the best shopping sidekick. She slept through the entire shopping trip, and didn't even complain, despite the fact that she went over 5 hours without eating!

After picking Lexie up, we drove to the nursing home my mom works at. Lexie had a few pictures that she had made to hand out. She and Lily brought smiles to the residents faces! We spent the rest of the afternoon and evening visiting my parents.

That night, we let Dylan and Lexie have a sleepover in Dylan's room. They didn't last long!

On Saturday, Grant went Christmas shopping while I got some stuff done around the house. That evening, our best friends, Jocie and Tom, and their boys, came over to visit. Jocie and I exchanged Christmas presents. I love the Scentsy warmer and scents that she gave me. I have been wanting one!

Today, we spent the afternoon visiting Grant's family. His mom watched Dylan and Lexie for a bit while we finished up some shopping. Then we came home, put up some more outdoor lights, and watched "A Charlie Brown Christmas" with the kids!

Lily spent the day teething (and growing hair-I swear, it gets longer everyday!)! Both of her bottom teeth broke completely through, and she is not very happy about it!

We have such a busy week ahead of us, and we are so excited for Christmas!

  2. Sweet post! I love the sleepover picture.

    It's too bad those teeth have to be so painful. I wouldn't be happy either.
