It's Christmas time in the ccccciiiitttttyyyyyyy!!! I love that Christmas isn't just one day, it feels like Christmas all month long! And even though we still have a very sad baby at our house, it feels a little easier to bounce a baby all night next to a glowing Christmas tree.
Ben's family arrives in Utah tomorrow for Christmas and we are blessing Patrick in church on Sunday! My to-do list is about a mile long and I still am too afraid to leave the house with both boys on my own so most nights I can only cross off one thing but beginning to learn that is OK! I did mostly all my Christmas shopping online this year which was nice (but I do love the mall at Christmas time) I just have one more person to buy for and then am DONE!
Here's my Friyay thoughts
++Guys, I am a sewer! My aunt gave me this old beautiful sewing machine and I have been teaching myself to be a little Martha. I seriously felt such immense pride after threading the bobbin and needle correctly. I can't tell you what I have been sewing because I am giving one to all my family members but I can tell you that it was a VERY beginner project #straightlines but I've got big plans for my sewing future
++I turned 27 on the 16th!! I seriously still think I am like 19 so this is weird, because people who are 27 are old and close to 30 which I can't even. I had an awesome birthday, I got some much needed alone and pampering time and lots of swig.
++ If you follow me on snapchat (cassie.tremblay) you saw me and E making gingersnaps a week or two ago. Today we are making a whole bunch for our visitors. They are the epitome of Christmas cookie and remind me of home. My moms recipe here, and then I dipped half the cookie in white chocolate once they cooled. ++Also by total fluke I got Patrick's first smile on snapchat and it was my favorite birthday present.
++I was going to do a wishlist/gift guide post for 'your baby who couldn't care less' but didn't quite get around to it. I would have put on this wubbanub (life saver) this blanket and this blanket, these adorable teethers and I love a jellycat softie. The only things I actually got Patrick this year are this amazing hat (lion flavor), some Christmas jammies for Christmas Eve and a book! Check out my other gift guides here.
++this is awesome and calms me for some reason
++Mint arrow blogger posted this on her facebook and I was seriously dying! The last one is of BYU students and I can't.stop.looking. Seriously every single person in that frame is doing the most weirdie thing.
++And finally here is a little Christmas playlist I made that is on at our house at all hours of the day!
