A Week In The Life, Vol 51.
How are these babies mine? I can’t even express how thankful I am, how blessed I feel that I get to be their mom. They are our everything. I was put here for them!
Still enjoying our advent spiral. Don’t mind the elf in a hot tub marshmallow bath behind it.
Their favorite part! Um also, guys, I realized after this day that we only had 21 candles out. I had left a piece in the bin!
We’re still in Christmas spirit week over here! It was light up day.
Last year I made charcuterie trays for the teachers. This year, I made them in boxes! I delivered a few to the school a bit before lunch time. I like doing this over cookies because everyone gets tons of sweets during the season.
Monday night Max made his first reconciliation.
This boy was such a dream during it!
So was she.
He came out of his shell a bit at the end. Okay this baby mullet is absolutely out of control.
My sweet boy!
Christmas tree topper was our next spirit day.
I set a day aside to bake.
This fab girl helped me once she got home from school.
Jut a bit of butter!
We made my grandma’s orange cookies.
The alison roman shortbreads.
And my grandma’s holiday thumbprints too. A few more doughs are still in the fridge.
The next day was ugly sweater day!
This isn’t ugly but it was perfect.
Rainiest, gloomiest day ever.
I love this.
We have hot chocolate in the evenings and tell each other one thing we’re thankful for.
Had to document her outfit.
Working on some new house stuff. Are we surprised someone is getting a tiny bit of pink tile?
Jordan is obsessed with putting my vest on his head through an armhole. He loves walking around like this.
On Friday we spent time with baby Sebastian and Cooper!!
Look at these best cousins!
Accidentally wearing the same shirt! 7 months + 1 day apart.
This baby is a dream!!! Look at Jordan trying to peek.
No one loves babies like Max does!
Friday night we made our sugar cookies.
The best recipe EVER is bridget’s perfect cut out cookies.
We just do cream cheese frosting and sprinkles! P.S. the snowflakes are always a fail and break. Why don’t I ever remember this?
This weekend we went downtown to see the trees.
The kids are dying to skate at the rink! Gotta go on a day when it’s not very crowded.
Jordan’s sweater was Max’s in 2016. I bought one larger for him in 2018 so Emilia could wear the smaller one. I love this sweater so much!! It’s from Hanna Anderson but they no longer carry it.
The snow flurries were perfect. I can’t believe how much I love these kids.
We also went and saw all the Santas around the world. You know how Max is super into geography!
He wanted his picture taken with each one. Look at those missing front teeth!
Quick detour to the milkshake factory even though it was freezing.
They are so goofy and fun.
My best buddy.
Today Max had a hockey game!
This was the outfit Emilia picked out. Her style is my favorite.
One week until Santa!
SO many hearts!!!

Do you have a recipe for the orange cookies?
Love these posts…is Emilia wearing lipstick in the photo in front of the huge xmas tree? How precious!
OMG – the orange cookies take me back. My grandmother used to make them. I need to pull the recipe out and make this week.
So on the pink tile, assuming it’s for your little one, and not you, just some learned advice–we built our house when my daughter was a similar age (4) and absolutely obsessed with pink and was very girly. So her princess suite had a lot of pink, girly touches. And cue forward to now having a 13 year old, who thinks pink is the worst color on earth–this started at age 11. Thankfully, for us, it’s been almost all cosmetic, so easy enough to fix (paint, light fixtures, curtain rods, vanity drawer pulls, etc.). I am so glad I stayed firm when we built the house and she wanted pink tile in her bathroom. I used black and white in her on-suite–and it’s matched all of her changing whims over the years.
Is there a recipe for those delicious looking orange cookies? I searched your site but no luck!
I purchased that little Hanna Anderson jacket after seeing it on Max. I tucked it way figuring I would gift it eventually. I thought I had the perfect baby to give it to this year but unfortunately, she born on December 28 2021 and is now too big for the size 60 that I purchased. I am hoping she will have a little sibling in a couple of years…born on a date that better coordinates with the jacket size!
Congratulations to Max. Is First Reconcillation a new term for First Communion?
Happy Christmas to you and your family!!
How special for Max, congratulations to him. Looks like you’ve had a fun few days :)
