Yo. So I took the kiddos to get their Santa pictures. I expected Bennett to be totally fine, and Easton to be the one to have the major meltdown. But it was the opposite! Easton did pretty well & Bennett was NOT having it. He wouldn't go near Santa unless I was sitting with him. So. Here I am. Wish I would have known I was going to be in this picture, I would have at least dressed cute.
The kids look happy, but if you look closely, you can see Bennett's red, splotchy face from all the crying he did before this! lol.
Hot chocolate is my jam this month. I have made a cup almost every day. Nothing spectacular, I just use Swiss Miss hot cocoa, mix it with water and heat it up. Then I add a tiny bit of whole milk at the end. And of course marshmallows. Give me all the mini marshmallows. Maybe I'm weird, but I like it when they get soggy!
As if I needed MORE subscriptions and boxes showing up at my doorstep, I just went and signed up for the Ipsy Glambag. Like I asked yesterday, is there a support group for this kind of thing??? Gosh. lol. Ever since I discontinued my Birchbox subscription, I've kind of missed trying out new makeup products/samples. So I thought I'd give this one a whirl, I've heard it amazing, much better than Birchox. I'm supposed to get my first makeup back mid-January!! I will probably post about it so you can see what's in it (if it's cool!).
The boys' Santa gift this year is this super cute little kitchen I ordered from Zulily! I got it for $200 OFF the original price! It was a steal of a deal. This is perfect because the kids love "cooking" and playing with their pretend food. They are going to flip out when they see this on Christmas morning!! I want to try to get video of it... someone remind me. ;) Only downside to this gift, is that it came in a bunch of flat boxes, so.... Philip and I will have to spend Christmas Eve putting it together. Hopefully it's not too hard ;)
I'm SO excited because we have a super fun evening planned tonight!! We're heading to Toys R Us to do a little more Christmas shopping. Then we're going to dinner at the Cheesecake factory with our friends and their kiddos. And after that, we're all going to Snowflake Lane!! I'm stoked! The last time we went, was 2011 & I was pregnant with Easton! It's awesome. It's a "holiday spectacle of live toy soldier drummers, music snow characters, glittering lights, all surrounded by snow falling along the streets." Check out my snowflake lane posts from 2011 & 2010. :)
Oh!!! And my little nephew, Cooper's, 1st Birthday is this weekend as well!! I can't believe the little guy is turning ONE already! It's going to be a good weekend.
What are your plans this weekend??
