the anticipation is KILLING me!

Although it saddens me a little bit to leave this lovely scene so early in the season...

notice Aaron's NOODLE angel? Perhaps my favorite ornament (and his too).


or this delight. love it. (sorry these pictures aren't the greatest. a little blurry).


notice I still haven't finished (or let's be honest, STARTED) Matilda's stocking.

new BEAUTIFUL tree skirt. I want to wear this, I love it THAT much.
Special thanks to Home Goods for carrying this wonderful item.


Sad to leave that site, but happy to see these sites/peeps featured below.

okay. I know. It may seem a little cheesy, but it is awesome to me. I told my friend about our family's Christmas Eve tradition the other day---she laughed, as did I, but really---what is there not to love about this??

Nothing. Love it all. (In case you were curious, my brother Jesse, was in Asia for two of those pictures---and yes, we have a picture similar to these EVERY year, but these were the only ones I could find on my family's website. Dad, get on that. j/k).

Gotta love matching pajamas.

Also, gotta love these people.

Can't wait to have so much fun showing ALL the above peeps (except tyler, who is on a mission in North Carolina--hOLLa! to you, Ty!), this little dolly...

busting a groove, here.

and welcome this girl back to the our mother country---U.S. of A.


and have so much fun.
all around.

here's a lovely image I found of my dear husband, circa 1985ish? I love it. He's the only BOY pictured. And, what a darling boy he is/was.

get a load of that cheesy grin!


(Oh, and a side note, that blue striped pj ensemble featured at the top---I discovered it is designer. I found "Oscar De La Renta" on the tags. That's right. Fancy schmancy.
We do pj's right, apparently. Who knew you were so "fashion forward", mom?!)

MeRrY cHrIstMaS!

p.s. if you look closely in that last picture of Aaron and his two darling sisters, you will notice on the tree, a red felt hand cut out ornament. If you scroll up further to look at our tree, you will see it again! SOO fun!!
