December Happenings!

It is already almost the middle of December and its crazy how fast its going! This year I totally committed to being that mom and creating magic for my little babes! And it literally has been the best ... some nights are longer than others especially when Adie wakes up and I have to put her back to bed then run down stairs to set the scene! But it really has brought the Christmas excitement into our home and we have made a ton of new memories that I will forever cherish! Adie is learning more and more about the true meaning of Christmas and it makes my Mama heart burst! On days when I think I am not a good Mom and then I hear her tell the neighbor girl that we celebrate Christmas because its Jesus' birthday and we go to church and girls wear dresses and boys wear ties. I think to myself ... I am doing ok! And on days when we are shopping in Target and Adie yells out, "Look Mama! There's Jesus Christ!" as she points to the People magazine with Brad Pitt on the cover. You know his long hair divorce drama picture! I just love her guts! So all of you Mamas out there, especially the ones reading this ... we are all doing our best and every day is a new day to create magic!

Hart showed up at our house on time (this year) and brought her fun donuts and chocolate milk! She came wrapped in a present! Adie was all giggles and instantly thought maybe it was her! Aden couldn't get enough donuts, he would literally scream at us until they were all on his plate! He is something else! Elfie is exciting but I think the true fun is doing our advent calendar ... every day I have been carefully choosing our days. We've read Christmas stories while eating chocolate chip cookies. We've cleaned out our closets and donated toys, made rootbeer floats and wrote letters to Santa! One of my favorites so far! Adie scooping the ice cream while Aden only wants the rootbeer and shoves your hand away when you try to help him eat the ice cream. I know I wont remember he spilled his on our white rug (my choice of color) but I will remember their laughter and the time we spent together. Some of Hart's surprises are doing good things, like picking up your toys without being asked! Her missions are my favorite!!! 

Adie had her Christmas program at school and that by far is one of my new favorite things for the holidays! She was so awesome up on stage singing! She loved Mr. Grinch and wanted her hair curled and I couldn't have loved her more. One of our days of the advent calendar was to make our own ornaments. Literally doing this every year!!! I think I want to make these ones every year and write the date after they decorate them! Hart took a hot air balloon ride through the house and ended up at our tree and it literally blew (you get it) Adie's mind! She was laughing so hard and I freaking loved every second! Her favorite thing in the mornings now is to see what Hart's doing downstairs! She needs to change it up a bit ;) maybe ballet class in her bathroom! So FUN! She also made it to the tree farm and picked out her own tree which Aden freaked that she borrowed his car. Like every time we went down stirs, yelled, "CAR! MINE!" He is my favorite boy! We have been like crazy busy with our new friends and we love it! Adie's new friend Addie (cute right) and her sisters have been hanging out with each other all week! We had the girls over for a fun cookie decorating play date! Funnest date ever! Girls are s o much fun and I was totally reminded that my Adie is just like all four-year-olds! :) So we're still doing something right! #win Which when I baked the cookies the night before I made a few Elf sized ones and you'll see why when you scroll down. But another huge hit ... Adie kept saying she had frosting on her face! Simple! One of the days of our calendar was to listen to Christmas music and dance and find something that plays music! I went to Home Goods only because I had a gift card ... and ended up spending 60 dollars over the gift card because everything for my little people was a must! That little carousel has been one of the best toys ever! They will sit there and twist it, listen to the music and Aden kisses the lion every time he comes around! :) It's really that darling!

While Adie was at school I had Aden help me wrap sisters present ... he helped pick it out too and I think that's the funnest part of the holidays, finding whoever something that they will love! Wrapping is one of my favorites! I told Aden to put her gift under the tree and he almost made it to the tree before dropping it, so I told him, under the tree, which he then kicked it all the way under! Boys! Hart had another mission for Adie and Aden and then hid in my favorite mask ever! Its from Cancun, Mexico and I fell in love with it the moment I saw it. It's a reminder of our time there and its loud and fun ... I want to add a map of Cancun, the number four and something else to the wall it hangs on but for now its one of Harts hang outs!

Hope you guys are having the best December so far and creating all that magic! Monday will be for sure another fun morning before we are off to school! I love school days! It gives me a little one on one time with each of my little baby babes! Cheers to being merry! -XO!
