Today it is rainy and chilly here in so cal ... chilly meaning 50's, which I know is down right warm for some of you out there; but for us it means puffy jackets and scarfs - ha! Today is Jason's day off - so I got to nap! ;)
Ella went on her first shopping trip! She joined my mom and I for some baby shower & christmas party gift shopping. I think we wore her out!
Jay is starting to perk up - hopefully this flu will be outta of our house soon! He's making us reindeer sugar cookies! Add some hot cocoa & a showing of Disney's Prep and Landing & we have a cozy Christmas night.
If you look behind Ella and I in the photo above you'll see our bare tree! Last year on New Years day Rebekah and I scored this awesome tree for $40 at Target! I love how large, beautiful and pre-lit it is! Drew is very dismayed at our FAKE tree, but I caved - it was economical! So, if you're looking for a tree - wait until Target puts the Christmas stuff up for 75% off ... score! I always get my Christmas paper and cards then as well. Anyway, our tree has 2 things on it ... ornaments I bought at the hospital gift shop, sadly. Shows you my life the last few weeks! Decorating, shopping, cards, etc ... have barely started and am not sure I even will get much further! Maybe I shouldn't try; maybe the quietness will remind us of the reason we all celebrate the day! Maybe it's better that way!
