A Week In the Life, Vol 49.
49 weeks into 2020! How crazy.
This first week of December was a good one! We got our first snow! We made gingerbread houses! The elf returned! We celebrated St Nick’s Day!
The night before it snowed, Max wanted to color snowflakes. I can’t even express how much this boy loves art. There are literally pictures hanging all over our house because he either draws something or prints it out and colors it then hangs it on the wall. Any wall! Ha.
Overnight, the snow came!
I absolutely LOVE snow in December.
The Irish Cream Cold Brew came back to Starbucks and I couldn’t remember if I liked it last year, so I got it again. Eh, it’s okay! I didn’t think it had a ton of flavor.
My extent for snow art.
Her little face.
She is so funny in the snow.
Max obviously adores it.
Sad mini snowman, haha.
Made a how sweet house salad, OF COURSE.
And crispy smashed potatoes too.
Sparkle snow is my fave. This was the next morning!
Our elf returned and Eddie 100% manages it. He is super creative and has the best ideas – also spends hours at night setting it up!
The kids go crazy for it.
For our advent calendars this year we got these ones that have a book everyday. The kids also love these!
Friday night we had a movie night on a floor.
Saturday night we made mini gingerbread houses. The kids did them all by themselves.
St Nicholas came and left some gold coins in their shoes!
Now to try and not eat chocolate for breakfast… !

jealous of your snow!
I’m making a note in my calendar now to buy our Elf on the Shelf, advent calendar, etc in the summer (if possible) for next year! our son is turning 1 in January, so I think not having them ready to go for his first Christmas, when he doesn’t know what to expect yet, will be ok.
thanks for sharing! love these posts and your work!
I remember leaving our shoes in the hallway in elementary (Catholic) school for St Nicholas to fill with candy! We’d be having some awful (well, for me) math lesson in the classroom, completely shoeless, and when it was over, we’d slip and slide into the hallway on sock feet to see what goodies St Nicholas (aka, the PTA moms) had stuffed into our saddle shoes, haha. Glad to see this tradition is still going strong!
Please continue the Week in the Life series next year. I am grandmother age, but never had kids. I look forward to this post every week and seeing your precious children. Plus, it’s given me great gift ideas for my great-nephew and new great-niece–who I have to pretend are my grandchildren so that I can spoil them!! ; )) Very best to you and your family.
Pretty sure Max is better at coloring than I am. That is all. 😂
Thank you for your Christmas photos of your children and recipes. We are in our 70’s but remember all the good times we had with our children at that age.. Thank you for our great memories. Happy Holidays to all.
They are the perfect ages for Christmas! Pure magic <3
