I decided to bring back my "Weekend Plans" posts on Fridays, despite the fact that we usually have little to no plans on the weekends. Go figure. Anyway, this weekend ushers in the magical month of December, and I am happy about that. Sure a little voice in the back of my head reminds me of the gifts that need purchased and wrapped and all that, but now I am able to shush that voice with a cup of coffee and a warm Christmas throw. Thanks middle age. You are awesome!
This weekend Steve and Rhett will continue their hunt for the elusive big buck while the rest of us relax at home with Christmas music playing in the background. Saturday we have mass, and then Madison and Nicolas are attending a Holiday Ball and I plan on a perfectly cozy night of ironing in my Christmas jammies.
Sunday is supposed to be warm here, so I have plans for the guys to decorate the outside of the house with some reindeer and ribbon. We never used to decorate outside, as our old house sat so far off the road that no one could see it. This house lends itself to some tasteful outside decor. Says the woman who has no intention of actually doing any of the decorating. Sunday night we will watch our Steelers and hope the right team shows up to play. You never know with those guys. I am thinking of making a pot of soup for dinner on Sunday too.
So that is that. And now a quick look at what we have been up to here in our cozy little home.
Thanksgiving was cozy and yummy.
Especially the pumpkin pie.
We also celebrated our November babies!
Madison turned 22 and Flynn turned 9.
Happy Birthday sweet girls!
Random picture of Kirby looking cute as can be.
Flynn and I are enjoying learning all about the Saints of Christmas.
I found these books on Amazon, and decided to use them for religion class the next few weeks.
And when school is done, Flynn spends time near the tree playing with our old Fisher Price toys.
Few things make me happier than sitting by a Christmas tree watching one of my children play.
We put up our trees this week.
I think this little ornment looks sweet all tucked inside the branches.
If you have not seen this movie yet, please do!
I am always hesitant about favorite movies being remade, but this one is wonderful!
We are planning on seeing it again!
Happy December, my friends!
Have a cozy weekend with your people.
Thank you for visiting!
(Thanks Pinterest for the last two pics.)
