I'm finally getting around to mailing our Christmas cards this week. Every year I say I'm going to get it done in November and I never do. Oh well, they usually make it to friends and family before actual Christmas day. I will share them with you all next week.
We've been keeping busy and trying to get outside anytime the weather pops over 40 degrees. As I do every year, it always takes me a bit to adjust to the freezing temps but the kids don't seem to care at all. They are obsessed with the neighbors reindeer and always must say hi and pet them.
I signed the boys up for a Siblings gym class this winter which I'm hoping will save our sanity on the days I have both of them at home with me. It's at My Gym which we've never been to before and they both loved it.
Life in the townhouse has been good. It's definitely a change to go 3000 plus sq ft to 1100 sq ft but it hasn't been as bad as I thought it might be. I've also learned that we can live with so much less. We've decided we're going to do a big purge before we move back into the other house and get rid of stuff we've been carrying around for years and not using.
Miller is so proud of his new nativity set and loves to have his dinosaurs visit baby Jesus ;) Can you spot them?
We made our first gingerbread house which the boys loved. Miller was obsessed with building the house right, just like the box and Matthew just wanted to eat all the candy.
Saturday night we went out in Baltimore to celebrate my sister's birthday! It was so much fun but I was paying for it on Sunday. I wore my new J.Crew striped ruffle top which I'm obsessed with.
So fun to get to go out and act like I'm 25 again ;)
We had dinner at Cava Mezze which was so good and drinks afterwards at Charleston.
I've been having so much luck at the Loft lately! I don't know if it helps that there is one literally across the street from me right now but I've been finding such good stuff. This sweater is so cozy and I've worn it at least 4 times since I bought it last Friday.
The door way into the back of the house was widen giving a much better view into our kitchen. This doorway was so skinny I'm happy to have it bigger and letting more light in.
The floor to of the sun room if officially raised and the HVAC is run back into the room!! It's now officially part of the house!! I'm so so excited for this part and so happy to have a more open space now. Running the HVAC vents into this room means we can remove the ugly wall unit we've had in there which I'm so happy about.
This doesn't look like much but it's the entrance to my mudroom and pantry! There will be a pocket door separating this room from the kitchen.
This is from inside the mudroom/pantry. The back wall will be hooks and cubbies and the wall to the right will be my pantry.
We have been back and forth over appliances and counter tops but I think we've finally come to a decision at this point. We really need to make a choice over the next week so we can finally get the cabinets ordered. That's a whole other story. Hoping to share more soon!
