Toddler Gift Guide

I may be late getting my gift guide lists together but I am not late getting my shopping done...I am in fact done and done!! I rounded up my kiddos gift lists first. We do the 4 gift guide...Something you want (usually their big Santa gift), Something you need, Something you read, and Something you wear! I haven't quite settled on their need items yet but it will be something pretty easy I hope;) Their stockings are stocked with all things Shopkins (they are obsessed), matchbox cars for Cayson and My Little Ponies for Isabella! I think this year's Christmas will take the cake and be the best yet! Isabella has quite a list going so I'm curious what she will tell Santa she wants tomorrow!

Doll house-This doll house has been on our list for a while. I snatched it last month when they were having a sale! Can't wait to put it together and see Isabella's reaction Christmas morning!
Pink coat//Blue coat-both kiddos coats are from last year and probably won't last us much longer. I'm adoring both of these and sized up so hopefully they will last for next year too:)
Shopkins-Our kids are obsessed with all things Shopkins these days! They ask for one everytime we are at Target!
Crayon book/Old MacDonald-The Day the Crayon Quite was one of my sweet patient's favorite books and I was so excited to snatch it for Isabella and can't wait to read it to her! This Old MacDonald book I thought was perfect for fun and our last name is McDonald, so duh, makes sense!
Tree house/Fold and go Farmhouse-I'm obsessed with this adorable Tree house. I actually snatched the small fold and go Farmhouse already for Cayson but if there is any sibling rivalry over the doll house, this precious Tree house may be making its way into our playroom soon as well!

Are you done shopping? What was on your kiddo's lists?

Life lately...

Tis the season....I just adore this time of year. So many fun festive things to do: special time with family and friends, cooler weather, lots of hot chocolate, Christmas lights and nights by the fire:)
We had a fabulous week and weekend. We've officially started Advent with the kiddos and they are loving it!
Advent day 3: Milk and cookies

These two get a crazy second wind every night! It's adorable
Birthday party fun for sweet and adore these kiddos and their mommas!

These adorable kiddos following the rules:)
Showing each other all their prizes..shockingly there was zero fighting:)
Saying bye, bye to her sweet BFF Rosie:)

We took the kiddos to Gaylord ICE for the first time. The theme was Santa is coming to town. Isabella loved it and Cayson, well, lets just say his hands got cold and it scared him so he cried about halfway through, eek! Poor buddy...when his hands finally warmed up and smiled really big and said, "Mommy, no hurt!" Aw, sweet boy, he has my heart. Mom fail for letting him touch the ice, oops! It is only 9 degrees inside and even bundled up it is cold!
We grabbed dinner after in the beautiful atrium of the Gaylord, such sweet memories!

Ready for Gaylord Ice!

Before he was freezing and was wearing my gloves!

Picking out their reindeer

These two and their hand holding stage is my favorite!!

Can't wait for more holiday memories!

Friday favorites

Linking up with Shea over at Mix and Match Momma, Erika, and Narci today to share my Friday favorites.

1.  Starbucks...SO this pregnant I am craving any and all Starbucks decaf...similar to my pregnancy with Cayson. Decaf nonfat no whip White Chocolate Salted Caramel...oh my, its like heaven in a cup! A sweet treat but sometimes you deserve it, right?!;)

2. Christmas lights...I have ALWAYS loved Christmas lights, I mean who doesn't?  I have wanted to put Christmas lights on our house for years but our roof line is too steep to do ourselves and the cost to pay someone is somewhat crazy and I couldn't justify it, but Wednesday while I worked and the kids were away, the hubs/daddy surprised us by having someone install lights! We were all in love!

3. Shutterfly...I have had a slight Shutterfly obsession for years! It is my go to for photo albums, cards, magnets for my office desk and this year I finally decided to grab an ornament and I'm in love! I'm going to go back and start ordering one every year! You have to grab a magnet! Such a great price and fun way to preserve your yearly photos. 

4. Target Christmas decor...I have a slight obsession and want it all:)

5. It's Friday!! That means it's almost the weekend! Bring on birthday parties and Christmas festivities:)

Daddy and daughter surprise date to Disney on Ice...she loved it! And I'm just a little jealous I didn't get to go:)

Meanwhile I had some one on one time with my sweet boy!

We relaxed and cuddled, what we do best!
This boy is seriously such a ham!

Sunday I got my own date with this sweet girl to the Nutcracker!

And we ran into our sweet friend Emery!

Goodness I could not have asked for a better weekend. 
We missed our Gigi and Papaw like crazy this year and our Papa Bill, Uncle Doug, and cousin Chris too! Holidays are tough but we are thankful they are having a party in heaven! And Marsha made noodles and cucumbers and onions-Gigi would have been SO proud! We missed our Martin fam this year but we will make up for it with some Christmas festivities!
