Good morning and HAPPY FRIDAY! Unbelievable that it’s that time of week again and I am thrilled.
Lula and I have been busy little bees around here. From decorating our Christmas tree. to holiday shopping, to baking up a storm; it’s been a busy start to December.
Lately, Lula and I have errands to run every day. This gets somewhat interesting with her nap schedule being what it is but I am always willing to be flexible if it means she takes a nap. This was her latest cart position when we were shopping a week or two ago.
I have had so much fun decorating the Christmas tree. We picked it out last Saturday and by the time we set it up, we were exhausted and it was already (or only) 5 o’clock, depending on how you look at it. We ended up putting the lights on after Lula went to bed that night and saving the ornaments for another day so we could eat dinner and watch one of the best Christmas movies ever- National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation!
Over the course of the last few days, I’ve been decorating it while Lula crawls around and plays. I hung some soft, non-hazardous ornaments on the bottom of the tree so she could pull them off and play with them if she so desired.Surprisingly, she’s been fairly non-plussed about the fact that a tree with sparkly lights is now in our living room. It might have something to do with the fact that she really dislikes the feel of the needles on her head…and who wouldn’t!
An ornament my mom sent to her last year…
One from Pa’s mom…
One of my favorite ornaments Pa got from his sister last year…
I think she bought it at Urban Outfitters?
And finally, the whole shebang!
My apologies for the poor lighting. I love having it on in the morning before it gets too bright- it’s just so cheerful.
Have a fantastic weekend!!
