It's catch up time.
We've been having some December fun.
Like pajama breakfasts with friends.
My friend Paige and I threw a "Stuff your Stocking" party last week.
It was a much smaller scale favorite things party.
Each person was asked to bring three $8-$10 items....and a stocking.
Joy must have had high hopes.
There were so many good stuffers!
We had a surprise guest who showed up to drop off the goods!
I must have been really good this year because I got a Starbucks card, a yummy Voluspa candle,
and now have a new favorite Victoria's Secret find.
It was so much fun, and I wish I had more pics to share, but we were too busy chatting, eyeing the goods, drinking mulled wine and eggnog, and sitting on Santa's lap.
Paige must have been REALLY good because Santa stayed the night at her house!
and the next night....
and probably is still there actually.
We've been trying to do "special" things this month.
I had really lofty goals, but have settled for fun things like bubble baths.
Which suits these two just fine.
Yesterday we did finally get to see Santa.
A few weeks ago we went to see Santa at the mall, but were kindly asked to get out of line once they found out we weren't willing to pay for the $ridiculously overpriced photo package.
Thankfully, Santa also visits the gym.
Addison was excited to see him and tell him what she really really wants for Christmas.
I hope he can come through on the Tinkerbell roller skates.
Graham was not so excited.
In fact, I look to be the most excited in this picture.
Santa didn't ask me what I wanted for Christmas.
Which is probably just as well since he just brought us a new Koi pond motor.
I miss the days when I got to ask him for roller skates.
