6 year old wisdom.

"Molly, what are you going to be when you grow up?", I ask.

"A mother" ... she says. 

I asked "how are you going to make money to feed your kids?" 

She said ... "well ... I'll know how to drive to Wells Fargo..."

I love my mantle this time of year… 

Aunt Tracey

Aunt Tracey sent Molly a book for Christmas… which I came across today… it had been stashed in a mad cleaning spree… 

Play date with Temperence

Little down time with Cinderella and popcorn...

Christmas lights and then some…

On the way home from running errands Molly wanted to drive around and look at lights.  I told her that some people might have put theirs away already and she could not understand this at all.  I suspected one house would still be all decked out and we were not disappointed.  

A is for adorable

As Molly is getting out of the car I tell her she looks adorable in her ensemble.  She then says, "Know how I can be even more adorable?" and puts on her party hat.  Rock on little one!

Merry Christmas!

Molly was very excited to show me the Anna (from Frozen) doll she picked out for me.

Helping daddy open his presents...

Tearing into her own…

So excited!


Someone loved her Anna dress… and boots!

Wore it all day long….

Face Time with Aunt Tracey...

Putting on a show with her new dolls while her other dolls were in the audience watching…

 Wearing my new necklace and my not so new bracelet…. I think the green crown ties everything in nicely...

Someone was trying to help mommy put chairs back up in the attic… and trip her…

Santa was here

Early Christmas present

My gift to Molly was to clean up her room… and NOT take a garbage bag to it!



There had been 9 play dates at our house in the last two weeks and so many things had been dumped on her floor.  Since Molly never played with any of the mini Lego sets she's been given I was able to get rid of every single one!  Phew!  Then we filled up three garbage bags of stuffed animals… another thing she never really played with.  Plus I was able to get rid of a lot of the super teeny accessories for the pocket size dolls she loves.  If it's smaller than a penny, it's too small!

I wanted to do a bigger purge before Christmas, but we did end up with 5 bags to drop off at Salvation Army so that will have to do… for now.  Another purge is definitely coming when things are a little less busy.

Cookies for Santa

Putting out some cookies for Santa… and beer… in our house Santa drinks beer.  The carrot is for the reindeer.

Christmas Eve

We met Granny and Grandpa for lunch at LGBC and then headed back to their house for some presents.

Presents under the tree

I decided to get a little ahead of myself and wrap up some presents tonight so I wouldn't have to do it all tomorrow night.  Molly will love waking up to see them under the tree… I just hope the cats leave them alone.
