events from the weekend:

watched a rom com, we both loved it.
did a little christmas shopping. my head is exploding!
ate at one of our favorite restaurants (our reward for cleaning all day)
watched a little dateline.
went to church.
ate some pie.

on saturday night hallie told me, "we looooooove it when dad stays home with us."

the first snowfall.

hallie has been anxiously awaiting the first snowfall. she's been all, "i can't wait to dig in the snow! let's catch snowflakes! can we build an olaf, elsa and anna??" uh, that would take a looooot of skill. last night she kept telling mark, "tomorrow it's going to snow and be christmas!" we need to get our facts straight. :)

we went outside as soon as hallie was dressed so she could catch snowflakes on her tongue and make footprints in the snow. she's a girl who loves footprints, what can i say? meanwhile boston was like, can i have a nap yet?!?

now hallie is at preschool and boston is snoozing peacefully in his crib and i am perfectly happy in my cozy home, going over our christmas lists. ps i've tried to be on top of things this year... almost our whole christmas is in the mail as we speak. and i'm so excited i could die!!!!!! (yes, the use of six exclamation points is completely necessary in this case.)

last year's first snow.

i still get asked if hallie's curls are natural on a regular basis. i mean, really. i'm lucky to get a brush through that head of hair of hers. she would rather do anything than sit and let me curl every piece of hair. rest assured, i'm not that crazy. :)

in other news, she's turning five in one month from today. WHAT.

baby time

there are too many things i love about these photos:

the hair that's growing in nicely
the tiny hand holding mine
the eyebrow raises
the cozy outfit that makes him even more squeezable
the cheeks and eyes and face in general :)

somebody invent a way to freeze time! pleeeeease!

sickly children

sick season is upon us and that means we make beds on the living room floor and do puzzles and watch disney movies. boston caught his first real cold. :( baby colds are just the worst, but he seems to be recovering nicely. here's to hoping for no more sickness. like, ever. :)
