On Christmas Eve, Laithe gave his farewell to Arthur the elf.
Sidenote: I read some jackass post the other day where the woman had already planned for her elf to stay all year.
It gave ideas for special things to do on holidays (ie. April Fool's, Labor Day, President's Day, etc.)
Seriously lady? WTF?
From Laithe and the husband I got a ring with Laithe and Kai's birthstone
(as long as Kai waits until January!)
And a Garmin Forerunner!
I'm so excited and I wanted to go running all over,
however it's in the 20's and snowy
and I am not so brave while 9 months pregnant!
I made cinnamon roll waffles on Christmas Day.
Take Pillsbury cinnamon roll,
place on waffle maker,
Laithe was so excited for his presents from Santa!
By 9:15 this morning, I had already taken down all of our Christmas decorations.
I've already uploaded our Christmas pictures and added them to our Shutterfly annual photo book.
Does that make me a Grinch?
Honestly, I would have done it all on Christmas if not for pregnancy/food induced laziness.
And...the husband fell down the stairs and was in no mood to do anything other than sit on the couch.
Super scary (and mildly hilarious after realizing he was ok....but not hilarious when he had to get x-rays this morning).
I think taking down all the decorations allow me to "reclaim" my house.
I love everything at first but as December wears on I find myself giving the stink eye to the Christmas tree for being in my way.
The day after Christmas really signifies the New Year to me.
It means I have less than a week to figure out my resolutions and a plan to stick with them.
(For those of you that consistently make a New Year's resolution to "lose weight" or "get in shape" I recommend getting pregnant in April and giving birth the following Janaury, it's an automatic jump start! Haha)
I'll be posting Monday about my New Year's resolutions (as well as the husbands!).
Eventually I will leave my house and finish up my winter emergency kit for the car (maybe Friday?).
I also added a page to the menu above to include books.
Check it out and please give me any recommendations you have!
