what are some of the traditions you and your family do over the holidays?
i made a little list of a few of our favorites! and i’d love to hear some of yours, it’s always fun to try new ones out…
— josh and i love reading david sedarias’ holidays on ice together. he was one of the things we really bonded over when we were dating and it’s fun to pull out his christmas book each year....
well, this past week has been one for the books! and not in a good way, but more of an exhausting-you’ve-got-to-be-freaking-kidding-me- kind of way. somewhere between ordering a new faux pre-lit christmas tree, and starting to set it up the day after thanksgiving, to discover the lights did not work, to the part where they sent the replacement tree almost an entire week later, which also had lights that did not work (i’m not kidding, we had two lemon trees in one week!), to the part where two and half hours later on the phone with costumer service, josh pays to overnight a third pre-lit tree to us and we still have no idea where it even is in the mail....
i have an obnoxious amount of photos to share from the thanksgiving day parade last week, but first i have to say thank you so much for the all the love you have shown us this past week since we announced our news! our family is so beyond thrilled to welcome these new babies into our family, and finally sharing the news with everyone made it feel all the more real (although truth be told, it sure feels very real over here with how sick i’ve been this time around.) but even so, we are just on cloud nine....
feeling extra thankful this thanksgiving day with news to share that our family is expanding with two babies on the way! twins! arriving May 2018 and we cannot wait!
sending love to everyone and hoping your thanksgiving has been wonderful so far!
dear library lions,
you look so festive and you’re making me so happy. can you keep the red bowties on through february?!
goodness gracious, you know how to snarl a girl’s hair like the devil.
there was a primary program, a regina spektor concert, a museum of christmas excursion and our very first attempt at hosting a friendsgiving in our weekend mix and i loved every minute of it....
