'Twas the Week of Christmas

I can't believe tonight is already the night!
This week flew by and even though it has been busy I somehow managed to take a few pictures, actually I took a lot of pictures.
Kayla was off this week from Preschool so her and Brooklyn did a lot of playing together while I cleaned, baked or wrapped presents.

oh and of course we spent a lot of time watching Christmas movies and cartoons!

I was pretty bummed that Home Alone had not been on tv at all this year so I had to buy it.
I also found some festive, sparkly nail polish for the holidays

Begged Brooklyn to let me give her a haircut but she was not gonna have it so just Kayla got a haircut.  She looks so cute with her hair short.

 my sideboard that I gifted to myself this year ;)

Every once in awhile it's fun to have a pretty table setting for dinner

Kayla and I found the perfect mug for daddy
He doesn't dislike Christmas, he's just not as enthusiastic about Christmas as I might be.

The girls re-enacting a scene from 'How the Grinch Stole Christmas' when all the who's gather around the Christmas tree at the end of the movie and sing a song holding hands.
Kayla and Brooklyn do the same thing singing and humming the same song,  soo cute!

Love getting packages, even if they aren't for me.

my little helpers in the kitchen

except I'm thinking they only help me so that they can lick the spoons or beaters when I'm all done

silly girl has been wearing sunglasses the last two days even at night

just one of the many goodies we baked up yesterday

our stockings all hung and ready for Santa to fill  with presents

Wishing each of you a Very Merry Christmas!
