Too Cool For School

I'm calling this week, a false start. The kids went back to school on Wednesday after a two hour delay due to the frigid temps. It was actually nice to ease back in with a delay because the first day back is usually a struggle. Thursday started the same way and on Friday school was cancelled due to the extreme cold. I'm so thankful that I didn't have to go out for more than a few minutes to take the dog out. Brrr! 
I was so determined to get all my Christmas decorations put away and start organizing closets this week, but the delays, cancellations, and a nasty cold have thrown me off a bit. So, Christmas will be hanging around until next week.
Until then, we plan to stay inside where it's toasty warm! Stella got a few new games for Christmas to keep us busy. She also got a latch hook kit which has totally taken me back to my childhood.
I love getting crafty with my girls! Speaking of craftiness, check out this adorable snowman family that Stella made at school.
They are so stinkin cute! 
Well, on to the weekend! I hope you all have a great one!
 Stay warm!

A New Year, a Fresh Start

Another year has come and gone and as always, I like to look back and see what I can do to live my best life. Being more organized, living a healthier lifestyle, and paying off debt are all things that I would like to work on. Of course, anytime is a good time to make improvements in your life, but the beginning of a new year seems like a good place to start. 

Whatever your goals for this year may be, I wish you all the best! 
Happy New Year!

The Santa Clause and Ruby the Elf

Day 4 of our countdown to Christmas was a busy one. Madelyn had an orthodontist appointment in the morning, followed by lunch out, a trip to Wal-Mart and a trip back to the orthodontist because something came loose on her braces. By the time the other girls came home from school, all we wanted to do was watch Christmas movies and drink hot chocolate. We watched The Santa Clause while munching on candy canes for the perfect relaxing evening.

Today on Day 5, we celebrated the arrival of a new friend!
Stella has recently started asking for an Elf on the Shelf. All of her friends have them and she loves hearing about their Elf shenanigans. While I was out shopping today I decided to pick one up for her to find after school. When she got off the bus, she was super excited to tell me that Jingle the Elf arrived in her classroom today. Imagine her surprise when she came home to find an Elf of her own. She named her Ruby! We told her, she must have flown into town with Jingle. So, a new tradition is born for our family. 

Do you have an Elf on the Shelf?
