Christmas 2012

This year Christmas was very different.  We just moved 4 hours away from home about a month ago.  Our house back home sold in only two days, so we are stuck in a tiny little apartment while we house hunt.  Because of the hubby's work schedule we did not get to go home for Christmas.  At first I was excited that we wouldn't have to drive to 100 different houses on Christmas day, but once it was finally here I missed my family terribly.  At the same time, we made some nice memories this year and I got to share some of my family's Christmas Eve traditions with my kids.  This year we went to a local tree farm and cut down our own tree, Griswold family Christmas style!

Cowgirls & Indians

A few weekends ago my girls were invited to an adorable Cowgirls and Indians birthday party.  The cowgirl part was easy, but Bubs wanted to be an Indian.  I was not aware that a lot of people dress up for Thanksgiving, so you can imagine my surprise when I went into Party City two days after Thanksgiving and they looked at me like I am a crazy person.  So this Mama had to get a little creative on the costume, but both the girls looked adorable and we had a blast!

Over the weekend I took my girls to a farm a few miles north of us that farms sunflowers.  There are acres of sunflowers.  Huge, beautiful sunflowers.
