Happy Christmas Eve!

We are so blessed this year! We get to spend Christmas Eve with our families and children, eating good food and enjoying great company.

Tonight we will pack a care package for our little Elf on the Shelf, Elsa, and send her back to Santa.  Our kids will open their special Christmas Eve gift which is always new pj’s, popcorn, hot coco, ice-cream treat and a new Christmas themed movie.

Our little family will snuggle in and watch the movie before bed. After we will place a key for Santa on the door.

We will get out our special cookie plate and cup and set out fresh made cookies and a tall glass of ice-cold milk for Santa and some carrots for his reindeers. Then it is off to bed to dream of sleigh-bells and magic, I ❤ this time of year!

Ready to Pop

One of my favorite gifts to bring newbie parents in the hospital is Champagne. When our first child was born we brought a bottle with us and had the nurses put it in the fridge. After her birth we celebrated with intimate family and friends. It truly was a special way to welcome our new addition and one of my favorite memories of her birthday.  IMG_2154
This is one of the cutest bubblies I have found to bring the parents (especially if they have a girl). It is Barefoot brand and the little foot is just too precious. They also make mini bottles which are great if you don’t want to bring glasses to the hospital so everyone can have their own “baby” bottle.

Here is the gift tag I tie on the bottle. Enjoy 🙂

So finally going through and organizing some photos when I ran across my sweet baby boy’s first birthday pics. Where does the time go?  Our birth photographer had taken a photo of him in front of the clock at his birth time 7:31 AM and at 24 hrs old and now I have one with him at the exact time a year later but what happened to all those hours, minutes and seconds in between I have no idea!

Note: Never leave children alone unsupervised with balloons. Luckily my son has never been one to put things in his mouth but still I watched like a hawk as we took these photos. He thought they were balls and was more interested in throwing them than eating them but accidents can happen in a matter of seconds so please be proactive. Thanks!
