So tomorrow is Colonial Day for Isla’s class, which means all the moms get to dress up like pilgrims and help the first graders make things like corn husk dolls and candles. Isla is SUPER excited.
I’m super excited that we’re one day from a week of no school, no early wakeups, no homework!
We’ve had a fun week. My mom and I shopped the big Chi Omega Christmas Market tonight. We go every year and this year did not disappoint! So many cute clothes, jewelry, kids’ outfits, etc.
I had book club last night. This month we read The Hate U Give. It was a great though-provoking book, and now I’m dying to see the movie.
On Tuesday night we were invited to attend the tree lighting- Dallas’ first of the season!- and 12 Days of Christmas display at the Dallas Arboretum. It was so fun! We love the Arboretum, and they do it up big for both fall and Christmas. It was really cold, but we bundled up and let the kids loose on the hot chocolate bar (Mama had mulled wine, SO GOOD). The kids loved running around and figuring out where to find each “day.”
Partridge in a pear tree…
Four calling birds…
Nine ladies dancing (my fave!):
And one cutie decked out in ALL the winter accessories…
If you get a chance to check it out, I highly recommend doing so! I love pretty much all holiday activities, but this one is particularly great because it’s fun for any age and so interactive (and wore the kids out, lol).
Busy weekend ahead- Friendsgiving, 2 Nutcracker rehearsals, soccer, basketball and *hopefully* decorating for Christmas!
