Pint Sized Holiday Fun

What a week so far!! Holiday fun is non stop over here, lots of school & church activities, visits with friends & now, Grandpa is in town! We have been moving a mile a minute, which has me almost looking forward to things slowing down in the new year. I sometimes can’t even believe how exhausted I am by the end of the day, bath time is a full on circus & washing sippy cups seems to take every last ounce of my energy. My husband & I joke that 8pm is really midnight, pregnant time.
But for now, the festivities continue!

Last week we had a little Friday morning playdate & decided to use a little inspiration from our recent hot cocoa party to have a little hot chocolate bar of our own at home! Harper was a big fan of her chocolate milk with marshmallows & an even bigger fan of her reindeer cup, which she was concentrating so hard on not spilling!

The girls decorated some gingerbread men (in adorable homemade aprons made by my sweet friend, Seema), which Harper loved so much because she is all about pointing out body parts & facial features lately. She loved giving him eyes, a nose & a belly button, and of course eating a few chocolate chips along the way.

Harper has been having all sorts of fun with all the packages that have been arriving in the mail lately.  We do almost all of our shopping online (literally everything but a weekly Target run!) & have also had lots of Christmas gifts on our doorstep. We have been turning cardboard boxes into forts, choo-choo’s, beds & now, coloring surfaces! 😉 She loves bringing all of her dolls, snacks & stuffed animals into her boxes to color with her too. Who knew they could be this much fun?!

And to top off the week, we also got to play Secret Santa recently with a bunch of our favorite blog friends!! We got the sweetest package from the lovely Julie & her adorable son Hudson, gem crayons?! Doesn’t get much cuter! Along with some antler leggings, a matching headband & Harper’s favorite, water color paints! Thank you so much for the sweet gifts, Harper loved it all & had a blast with her new art supplies already! We got to send gifts to one of our favorite new mamas, Erinn & her daughters, Ashlynn & Kenley, including our new favorite book Flora and the Flamingo and a few other goodies which you can see on her blog! Erinn, we loved shopping for you girls! 🙂
Thank you girls so much for including us in the gift exchange! Hope to do it again next year!! 🙂 You can find all the rest of the participating mamas & gift ideas by visiting all of their blogs here:
Happy almost Friday friends!! The last weekend before Christmas is always sure to be full of hustle & bustle, hope you have a moment to stop & smell the candy canes!! ‘Tis the season to be merry! XO
