(Not) Dreaming of a White Christmas

Am I the only person who's anti-snow at the moment? We're supposed to travel to Columbia in the morning to see my family and I'm so hopeful that this wintry mix will disappear (magically) by then. For now, though, I'm going to enjoy a delightful Friday evening with all three of my guys. With my return to work getting closer by the minute (the Monday after Christmas), I'm treasuring all of these moments.

Our plans for tomorrow may be uncertain, but our cozy pre-Christmas Friday agenda looks something like this: laundry, movies, a hot batch of Christmas cider, maybe a nap, some babytime and Christmas tunes. Not quite a night on the town, but it's heavenly to me.

Our plans to meet with Mac's teachers and have lunch with friends were quickly derailed by the icy morning we had, but I'm so grateful to have this perfect evening to make up for it. Mac has had a tummy bug all week, which has made me a little more sleep-deprived than usual and so grateful for some time to lounge around.

Tomorrow Mac will meet some more family members and we'll have the first of our Christmas gatherings for the year. Exciting! (And unbelievable how quickly this month has flown by.)

Gotta run check on my holiday punch, my mom's Christmas tradition. It makes the whole house smell like Christmas - apple cider, orange juice, cranberry juice, cloves, cinnamon and a few other secret treats go into it. Just as yummy to drink as it is to smell!

A quick snapshot from today as Blue guides Mac in the art of enjoying tummy time. He's an expert at lying around!

Our Friday was yucky, yucky, yucky. We didn't have wintery mix, but we had rain, rain, and more rain. Yuck! I hope you enjoyed your night in -- we had to venture out into the mess!

I love the picture of Mac doing tummy time!!
