Sunday Ramblings

So who is all decorated for Christmas??  I am!  I know, I know it's early, however I really wanted to get the inside done because Brian is changing crews at work which meant he is changing the days he works.  So while he had days off the same as me, I wanted his help getting it all done =)  And i'm pretty sure I haven't mentioned here, but he was promoted to Sergeant at work =)   The girls and I are super proud of him!  I know this is something he's wanted for a while now =)

Emma's Elf on the Shelf, Patch, made a very early appearance the other day.  

He decorated her tree and left her an Elf on the Shelf nailpolish kit.  She loved it.  And a cute little card too.  In previous years Emma has been scared to death of Patch...we're hoping this year is better!  

Emma wore Matilda Jane to school the other day, and looked pretty darn cute I think =)  

We were blessed with a little more snow the other day, but thankfully most of it has gone away again.  Emma was excited to wear her new ski pants and boots though =)

Alyx has been doing this cute little head thing for a while now.  If you look at her and say "give me a hug", she puts her head down like this and smiles.  She's too cute!

I gave french braiding a try!  Not bad!  I wish I could do it better, but i'll keep practicing!

Alyx was too funny the other night at my MIL's.  She was feeding Kaden her apple puffs!  Every once in a while she would get a puff into his mouth and take it right back and eat it herself! LOL =)

Lastly, my mother bought the girls this new book.  If you see it in the stores, I highly suggest it.  Emma loved it!  And the illustrations are beautiful.  We enjoyed it last night with hot cocoa.

Happy Sunday all!!! =)


  1. I just told Joe last night I was thinking about putting up our Christmas decor today, which would be the earliest I have ever done it, and he about had a heart attack. I guess I will wait a bit more then, haha! I love Emma's Matilda Jane outfit... SO CUTE! And, awwww, that look and head tilt Alyx does is adorable! I will have to check out that book. I have never heard of it.

    1. This is the earliest I have ever had decorations up too! But I kinda like it =)

  2. We put our tree up a little bit ago. No ornaments, yet. I'm trying to practice the french braid thing too. Emma doesn't have very much hair though! LOL

  3. I can't wait to get a few Christmas decorations up! And great job on the french braid. I attempted it once in Brianna's hair a year or so ago and quickly decided she needed to be a bit older so she could sit still better!

  4. Scott thought it was crazy that people were starting to put up their Christmas stuff already, but once I reminded him how LATE Thanksgiving is this year, he immediately turned and asked me if we should put up our decorations this year. LOL!! He also informed me we *needed* to get an Elf on the Shelf. Who is this man, and where did he put my husband?!
    A HUGE CONGRATULATIONS to your husband!
    I'll have to keep an eye out for A Christmas Wish. We need to expand our Christmas book collection.

  5. Nice job on the French braid!! And I can't wait until the kiddos have their own rooms again because I have wanted to get them their own trees for quite a few years now. Maybe next year! Also, super huge congrats to your hubs on his promotion!
