Time for Scrapbooking

I haven't scrapped in weeks... It is my new favorite layout. Probably because it is one of my favorite pictures.
And a few other photos from this weekend:
Pizza Making Party Breakfast on Sunday. I look scary. We are wearing our Christmas Cracker hats. Our friends, Mike and Courtney, and Tate.

Really? Are there only 6 days left?

Treats for our visitors this weekend, Courtney & Mike Thomas and Bethany & John. His favorite place...mama and daddy's bed on movie night with a big bowl of popcorn. I hate food in the bed, but I make the exception for him.

I feel like I spent many months thinking of all the stuff Tate and I were going to do for the holidays, and before I knew it, we are only 6 days away.

Where's Waldo? Apparently in London...

As we walked down Regent St...And inspired by Paula, here is our Christmas decor:

For our advent Calendar, we have a craft or activity every day after nap. Race car day was Day one. Another day we made a SNOWFLAKE MOBILE--basically paper snowflakes, glue, ribbon, popsicle sticks and glitter.
Need more ideas?? Email me or leave a comment. I'm chockfull. In fact, Tate sometimes just wants to color instead :(

Ever have carrots with lemon and salt on them?? They are really good--I'm not lying!! I had them for the first time in this fancy bar in Turkey and just rediscovered them. The other dish is just walnuts, pecans, and almonds that I microwaved for a few minutes in my stoneware to toast them up. I then added yogurt covered cranberries. The whole thing kind of melts together and I ate it with a spoon.

"A teaspoon of HONEY makes the medicine go the most delightful way!" This is sung in my house daily, with a request for the actual teaspoon of honey.

Because it gets dark VERY early here...

And it is freezing outside, and Paul is coming home late for the 6th work day in a row, and because Mama stayed up too late:

**Please ignore my super dirty floor, and my drying laundry on the table!!
