christmas with the lye's

since this is the first year i get to decorate my own home for christmas, i've given a lot of thought on how i want our home to feel during the holiday season... i went with, romantic. 

picture this with me: nights, we will turn down our lights and have twinkling christmas lights brightening up our home. candles will fill the air with holiday scents like pumpkin, gingerbread and peppermint. in the background, the t.v will be playing 'what a wonderful life' while we dance around to those old familiar notes that make up our favorite christmas carols. i'll look over and see collin and jude.. and feel so grateful that they are the two people in this world, that are enjoying this night with me...

oh i'm giddy just thinking about it! i've got a few easy and inexpensive (and sparkly!) diy projects in mind that will help create that romantic feeling. i plan on starting them this next week so i will post them as i go!  

stay tuned...

thank you, sweet husband, for the love you have for me and our little bambino, your heart is sweeter than all the candy in the world! and thank you, sweet baby, for showing us how to love so deeply, you will surely melt the hearts of many.
lots of hugs and kisses to the both of you!

zara for jude

for christmas, i want to get jude an outfit from zara (!) but i cant decide on which one. 
there is only a $6 difference between these two but with the first one, we would be getting a jacket that he could wear all through winter, the second one is a little cheaper and he does need new jeans. 
i so badly want to buy both but he's not that spoiled (at least this time)
which do you think?

pool party

i started nannying ryder and jaxson hill when they were 2 and 3 years old... ryder just celebrated his 8th birthday... 8! my goodness, time really does fly. as a present to ryder, i booked a hotel room in his name and invited them to have some indoor pool fun!

jaxson's 7th birthday is in two weeks... thats the best excuse for a pool party in december! 
happy birthday ryder, i sure hope you had a blast!
