Pre-Holiday Rush

Well we’ve been slacking in the blogging world lately. Our heads are practically spinning with how busy we’ve been over the past few months. Every day and weekend seems to be filled with something – visiting family, charity events (shout out to the National Kidney Foundation Luncheon which we’re attending today!), errands, pumpkin patch, weekends to the cabin, and other trips out of town. We are loving every minute but hope desperately to have one weekend where we do absolutely nothing. We know we have plans every weekend for almost the next two months but I’m hoping I am miscalculating and there’s a free weekend hiding in there. 🙂

Visiting family

Deciding where she should scoot next while playing with her cousin

Claire is so active these days and SO adorable. She is an avid scooter and can get across the room in maybe 30 seconds. If she sees something she wants, she gets there quite quickly. Whether that’s the dog, us, our laptops, her toys… you name it, she’s a determined little one.

She’s also been teething lately and we’re wondering when the next one will pop out. She has two right now but we’re pretty sure that will change soon.

There are some minor updates we’ve made to the house in the past few months that I really want to post an update on. With working full-time and having such busy weekends, I feel like we barely have enough time to relax and the time we do have, we savor it instead of cramming something in (which I’m so grateful for).

We’re getting SO excited for the holiday season to begin especially because these will be Claire’s first holidays. Claire is going to be a pumpkin for her first Halloween and we have the cutest costume EVER for her to wear! I think it must be a requirement for babies to be pumpkins for their first Halloween because most people I’ve talked to have said that’s what they were.

I’m especially excited for Thanksgiving because it’s my favorite holiday of them all. A day to relax and spend with family while eating all of my favorite foods = the best day of the year.

One thought on “Pre-Holiday Rush

  1. It sounds so familiar 🙂 we have all the weekends booked till the end of the year, so it feels like it is 1st of January tomorrow! Looking forward to Christmas to finally slow down and have a couple of days to do nothing, except for eating festive foods… 🙂
