Welcome to the weekend view. This, that and everything random from the week that was.
Twas the week Before Christmas
The week before Christmas is a busy one. Full of cleaning and any last minute gifting. We are doing simple and useful gifts for the kids and of course fun things for Juliette. So it hasn’t felt as busy as usual in the gifting department- but with all that rain we just – the clean up is keeping us busy.
Leaks in the roof
Speaking about all that rain. The bathroom roof that has been replaced several times because it leaks- you guessed it. It leaked again. Worse than before since the rain was so heavy. We had a bathroom full of buckets to catch all the drips until we could get a tarp on the roof. And now we are back to trying to figure out just exactly where that water keeps getting in. I told my husband I think it might be from where the contractor tied the addition in years ago since it didn’t leak before we added so we may end up just having to redo that whole thing. Always something to fix in an older home for sure.
Juju’s First Christmas
We are getting excited to celebrate Juliettes first Christmas with her. We snapped a few fun photos the other day while they were here for dinner and are planning a proper photo shoot this week. Here is a sneak peek.
Lots of questions on yesterdays post about these particular boxes. They are a set of 3 -each a different size and are a soft silvery gray in person. You can find them HERE
My dad and one of my brothers are celebrating birthdays this week. No big plans for getting together to celebrate in person but wanted to wish them a happy birthday.
Because it is a favorite to share each year. This is a snap of my twin nieces Elodie & Willa meeting ‘Santa’ aka Uncle Evan for the first time. Let’s just say they were not impressed lol. They are now 8 years old (you can see them in the photo above with my brother and his wife) but it is a funny snap to share every year.
Coming your Way
I am working on a little baking this weekend- stay tuned for a peek at how it turns out. The Christmas Magic at Night tour is always one of your favorites – and it is coming your way on Monday this week. I am also working on a little video compilation tour of the trees and rooms that I will be sharing as well.
I am going to try and sneak in as many Christmas posts as I can this next week before taking a little bit of a break. As much as I thrive on the busy-busy- I have to say I am really looking forward to a little bit of a slower pace for a few days and soaking up the magic of the season. You can see some of the Christmas posts from this year Here.
Happy Saturday all!
