I think we can officially say Christmas is in full force! Are you enjoying your holiday parties and soaking it all in…or scrambling like mad to get your list done? Maybe a little of both?
We went to our first Christmas party last night and had a great time. It was a mostly “grown up” party, but older children were invited too. As a treat, we took our girls along and left the boys home with a sitter. At one point during the party, I told my oldest daughter, “this is the kind of thing mommies and daddies do on date nights.” She quickly replied, “Then I LOVE going on date nights!!!” To be fair, I promised the boys their turn with us would be very soon.
It’s been in the 30′s during the evenings here at the beach and I have to say I am loving it. Feels more like Christmas when it’s cold outside.
