Golden Christmas

Christmas 2013, our golden Christmas. A lot of love, a lot of memories and a lot of gold, literally. I naively bought gold glitter wrapping paper to go with our white and gold color scheme and boy was that a sparkly mess. I digress. A special Christmas none the less.d27

My Christmas Eve gift to the boys, light up remote control cars. I had eyed these on the Christmas toy palooza, that is the home shopping network come December, for a couple of years and finally caved. There were no regrets.d32

Pumpkins And Bats And Mice, Oh My!

 

Halloween decorating was a lot of fun this year.

*********************

Our fireplace mantle in the living room. h1Pumpkin topiareies that I made, probably my favorite addition this year.h2I scored both led candles and the witch pumpkin on clearance at Kohls last year a few months after Halloween so they were nearly 70% off!w3I repurpose our usual candles for every holiday by just adding ribbon. Cheap, quick and always adds a lot of holiday feel to every room. h3w1Bath & Body Works Trick Or Treat candles worked in perfectly.w2I added a little Halloween spirit to the kitchen as well.w4

Lovey’s favorite decoration, Mr. Pumpkin. He talks when you press his nose. He’s a pretty fun fella’ and I can see why he’s Lovey’s favorite.h4Our entry table all dressed up for Halloween.

I love being greeted by a table of cheer, whatever season it may be, when I first walk through our door. It’s always the first area that I decorate and the last one that I put away until the next year. h5w6I brought the wreath in that I made last year from hanging on the front door and found it a new home on the entry mirror.w5I was so pleased with our stairs. Cute and just a touch of creepy with the mice cut outs. Decorating our stairs this way will definitely be a Halloween tradition from now on. h6

 

Snow Flurries

We had a unseasonable cold spell last week that brought record snow flurries our way. Lovey was already off from school that day and Mister Mister ended up having it off from work as well because of freezing temperatures. We didn’t mind, cozy pajamas and snow gazing was perfectly fine with us.f4

First Day Of Kindergarten

Lovey’s first day of Kindergarten!

Soccer Boy

    Since Lovey was a small boy he’s had a fascination with soccer.

Yesterday he and I played a few games in the backyard. We pretended to be captains of our own teams. He named his The Alphabets and I named mine The Rollie Pollie Ollies.s3s2ss1The Alphabets won, 20-19, per Lovey’s score keeping.s4
