Weekending | Christmas Break Edition.

Happy New Year, friends! Today is Ryan's last day of vacation and I am  s l o w l y  letting myself get back in the ol' routine. Tomorrow I'll be scrubbing down the cozy brick house and (finally!) putting away the rest of our Christmas decor before the children head back to school on Wednesday. It's been a lovely break. Probably my favorite ever. 

We've been admiring the glow of our pretty tree,

taking road trips to Portland to see the Blazers stomp on the Kings,

adding pink sparkles to our nails,

enjoying our first family ice skating session,

and listening to The Head and the Heart over + over + over again.

Other highlights: Filling out our Resolution Kits, reading The Hunger Games, and watching a new movie every night. It's been wonderful and I'm sad to see it end.

I hope you've had an equally enjoyable holiday season with the ones you love too. Twenty-Twelve is going to be a great year. I just know it.


  1. Happy New year to you and your beautiful family! We had an amazing christmas this year as we welcomed our third child a little girl on the 14th. Our family is now complete. Loving the resolution kits. Thank you!

  2. The Head and the Heart on repeat at my house too!! Enjoying your blog very much :)

  3. I'll have to check out Head and Heart. I loved the Hunger Games trilogy....you?

  4. All of the menfolk in our family went up to the basketball game to watch Jimmer. My mom said, "Oh I think he did well. He scored 10 points." Lol!

  5. you really do have the cutest little family.

  6. ha, i finally got my husband to read hunger games and he is HOOKED. now we're both excited for the movie to come out :)

  7. Hunger Games is the best! Yes, twenty-twelve IS going to be awesome...I can feel it!

  8. What a beautiful family you have! Happy new year to you all. And enjoy the Hunger Games, I just finished the third book in the series. So heartbreaking, but wonderful all at the same time.

  9. Took my little man (4 years old) ice skating too. You should see my bruised up legs.

  10. When a place gets crowded enough to require ID’s, social collapse is not far away. It is time to go elsewhere. The best thing about space travel is that it made it possible to go elsewhere. Flights to Accra
    Cheap Flights to Accra
    Cheap Air Tickets to Accra
