It has been such a fun, busy week! I did manage to take a few pictures, so I’ll try to update you on what’s been going on that way!
On Sunday, I started decorating for the Holiday Market. And by Wednesday around 3:00 p.m., we were finished! I had an amazing committee and hopefully I’ll do a full post with all of the decorations. I took a few pictures of the table decorations and some other details the other day.
Santa Claus visited the Holiday Market on Friday night, so we took Hudson and Hayes. Hudson couldn’t wait to meet Santa and Hayes slept while we waited to see the jolly old elf. Then Hudson melted down as soon as he hit Santa’s lap!
I was completely inspired by our Holiday Market theme and colors and decided to play up those colors in my tree this year. My tree is a mix of ornaments of all colors, but I buy different ribbon every year to bring out my favorite colors for that year. This year I focused on the pink, green and peacock blue. Because I just hadn’t seen enough of it at Holiday Market yet! Our ornaments are things that we have collected at events and as souvenirs when we travel. I love going through all of them each year and remembering where we were when we bought them.
We had a fun Preview Party for Holiday Market and I got all dressed up to go. I had fun hanging out with my friends Emily and Misty. The band was so much fun!
Hayes has been so sweet! I’m so excited to be celebrating his first Christmas. Today, my friends Rachel and Katie came to town to shop at the Holiday Market. Afterward, I went with them to lunch and brought Hayes while Hudson and TC ran errands. He was excited to hang out with mommy’s friends!
Hudson and Hayes are excited that I’ll be home all week with them this next week.
Tomorrow, we’ll spend the evening tearing down the Holiday Market decorations, which will be a little bittersweet. But I’m eager to get my Christmas season started! I am looking forward to watching Christmas movies at night and wrapping presents.
My Jesus Calling devotions this past week have really helped me have a sense of peace as we’ve had so much going on. It’s a very busy time for TC, too, so we’re just all trying to pull together to keep things going.
I’ve missed my blog! Hopefully this means I’m back to regularly scheduled posting.
And stay tuned. On Monday, Nina and I have a very exciting blog event happening! Get excited!
