What our month looked like in photos and a little bit of words 🙂
Trying to make the most of the first December we got to spend at home since Anya was born. Short short days, lots of rain and the holidays!
Took a little hot-chocolate surprise for Anya one day when I picked her up at school and we stopped by at a tree farm where she drank it as I took photos (More here) // Because we don’t really celebrate Christmas, and her fascination with all things Christmas related, I bought her a teeny little tree of her own to decorate and she was happy!
Enjoying holiday festivities around town
Celebrating a friend’s birthday at our monthly potlucks with our group of friends. Always up for an excuse to get those birthday hats out 😉
Weekend Brunches // And teatimes on the day B works from home
Evenings with this one before B gets home // She loves jumping on my bed when I have to change the sheets and I love the fun photo challenge it makes for:)
Most days while I make dinner she brings her piano and dances to the pre-made tunes on that, its very funny lol // Also love when we bring our stack of books from the library and she reads while I cook // She loves playing this particular game with all of her Elsa & Annas that her daddy has invented for her. It is really entertaining // She specially waits for her daddy to get home so she can play her crazy games with him.
I finally finished this yarn wall hanging for Anya’s room // Usually what her room looks like at the end of the day, quite a mine field in the dark like you can imagine
As December came to an end, we got some chillyyyy frosty mornings. Seattle gets so so cold when its nice and clear this time of the year.
Took my girl to the zoo one day during her vacations and was so proud to know she has way more knowledge about animals than I do:)
Wish I could hold on to all these little reminders of her love for the day when her teenage version will tell me she hates me. Sigh.
Lots of time with this one once her winter holidays started as: Being my mama doing her shoot one day // Music time with her daddy // Playing teacher to all of her stuffies one day //Feeding our neighbor kitty while they were out of town // Little miss A planning a mama-daughter artwork time for us one morning
Some daddy-lovin’ at Mod Pizza // After dinner time one day when I found them like this
And a super fun impromptu new year get together as we had friends in town. Anya loved meeting up again with her friend she made last year.
Hope your year is off to a fabulous start!
Thanks for stopping by. Lots of love
