Hey all! I am coming at you today from home sweet home - my parents. We are celebrating Christmas this weekend, and I am so excited.
Obviously, my first favorite is just above - home for Christmas! I can't wait to see my brother and his family. Jackson is at such a fun age right now, I can't wait to see him "Christmas" morning.
Back tracking to earlier in the week, I knocked a few items off my Christmas bucket list. Sunday night was gingerbread house night. While it pretty much fell apart right after the picture was taken, it still was really fun building the house.
Monday night was Christmas light night, complete with a peppermint hot chocolate and Amy Grant playing in the car. We found the best neighborhood for lights! So many of the houses were lit up - I feel like it's rare to see that anymore, so it was such a great surprise. I think we actually stumbled upon a neighborhood event, because people were setting up coffee in one of the cul de sac. We didn't stick around to see what was going on, but it seemed super fun. Definitely going back there next year for lights!
My little department had our holiday lunch yesterday. It was the first time we actually have gone out to eat together, just the three of us, and it was really fun! We ate at Charlie Gitto's, a super delicious Italian restaurant. I had the Chopped Salad, which was really good. I definitely will be ordering that again, and maybe adding some salmon to the top. Just fun to enjoy a good meal together!
I feel like most of my mail is normally bills and junk, however, this week, I got some Christmas cards in the mail! Always the best kind of mail. I am hoping to create a Christmas card "book" this year and going forward. I think it would be so fun to look back in a few years at past cards and see how everyone has changed!
Hope you all have the best weekend! Merry (early) Christmas from my family to yours!
Linking up with Andrea, April, and Katie.
