GIANT Gingerbread

The kids LOVED this GIANT life-sized gingerbread house that was in the lobby of a local hotel during Christmas. I loved it because Carroll's Cup is in the subway level of this hotel. Let's just say we were there A LOT ;)


American Girls!

 Welcome our newest member of the family, Kit!
Some of my very best friends and I took our 3 little birthday girls to the one and only (okay, not the only) AMERICAN GIRL DOLL STORE in Mall of America to buy each of them their very first American Doll! I don't know who was more excited, the girls or the moms.
We ditched school and every other responsibility for the most amazing day EVER!
We spent lots and lots of time picking out the perfect doll then had a BIRTHDAY BRUNCH in the American Girl Bistro.
The girls and their new dolls all got the most adorable birthday hats...

and after lunch we got our very own birthday cake. Isn't it cute?
The happy moms! I LOVE these girls!

And here are the very happy girls with their dolls!

This was the BEST day and the BEST way to start Addi's week of Birthday Celebrations!

He's Back!

Our Christmas Elf, NUNU, came back this year!
This is one of our FAVORITE TRADITIONS of Christmas. 
We LOVE Nunu!
