"B" is for Busy.

If you look up the work busy in the dictionary you might find a picture of this crew right here.

I know I must sound like a broken record since I mention being busy in almost every blog I write, but I seriously...I preach the truth. The past 3 months have been insanely busy for our little family, but this morning I woke up to find myself in unfamiliar territory. I woke up and did not have ONE thing that had to be accomplished today.

Are you kidding me?

Heaven I tell you.

The girls have been busy all morning working on their new crafty gifts they got from cousin Lexi and Bryce has been walking around the house dressed as a cowboy/pirate/rock star race car obsessed little boy. It has been so refreshing and relaxing. I'm thinking we need WAY more days like this!

Since I haven't had much time to update the old blog I figured I would post pictures of some of the "goings on" around our house.

First up...

Our Elf on the Shelf has been rather entertaining this year. Yes, our elf has gotten into some mischief, but by no means it is every night nor is it very elaborate. Some nights he just does the boring old hide in random spots and other nights he has gotten into a tiny amount of mischief. Either way the kids really enjoy the whole elf concept so we embrace it. Hopefully the mom who writes this blog (click here) won't throw me into the "over achieving Elf on the Shelf mommies" group. ;) If you haven't read this particular post on the blog titled "People I want to Punch in the Throat", you must because it's a good laugh. Several of her blog post are extremely funny...I dig her style. :)

*Notice that Raja is in the back seat...chaperoning Jasmine's date with Buddy of course.

Buddy also stacked marshmallows into towers and hung off the foyer balcony like mistletoe with a sign that said "Kiss", but I forgot to take pictures.

We made Christmas cookies and decorated them. This was such a hit with the girls that I've bought more supplies so we can make more cookies this week. I'm VERY good at coming up with excuses to make delicious goodies!
Uncle Andy helped too.
Beautiful AND delicious!

The Mullinax family came over for dinner one night. The kids exchanged gifts and were thrilled with their new treasures.

Sydney's school holiday performance. Total unorganized chaos (on the schools part), but my girl gave it her all! She was so excited for us to watch her sing.

This past Sunday was a big day. We had not one, but two family Christmas parties to attend. After church we headed to my mom's to hang with her side of the family. Pictured below. From there we headed to Bryan's parents house to celebrate with his entire side of the family. Of course I forgot to take pictures, but just know they are an equally good looking group. ;)

These are just some of the fun activities we have been up to. Tomorrow Bryce has a Christmas performance at his preschool. He will be one of the "Heavenly Host of Angles". It will be a miracle if he can sit still through the short program. Hopefully I'll get some cute pictures and maybe even a video.

I loved Buddy's adventures -- most especially the 'snow angel'. That was awesome.
