Why My Christmas Dishes Make Me Smile - Every Time

It is that wonderful time of year again!  It makes me so happy and giddy and excited of what is to come.  I love Christmas, I truly do.  After Thanksgiving we brought down our Christmas dishes.  And they always bring a smile to my face!  Why??  Well, because it was one of the first arguments David and I had after being married.  Why does that make you smile??  I am getting there.  We were at my in-laws that year celebrating and David and I were talking about our dishes, not sure why exactly but that isn't the point either.  I remarked about how I loved our dishes because they had the cutest snowman on them.  But David disagreed.  He loved them because of the nice Christmas tree.  Snowman.  No, Christmas tree.  No, Snowman.  Back and forth, slightly more heated.  I am not sure about him but I was determined to get home, pull out our dishes and prove to him that he remembered all wrong and that I was right!  Why?  I really have no idea.  And honestly, it makes me sad to remember that was my attitude but it really was.  So, I did just that.  I marched into our home and went straight for the dishes upon our return.  And I couldn't help but burst out laughing when I pulled them out.  Why?  Because these are our dishes.

See the cute snowman, right next to the Christmas tree?

Earth's Best Playdate Fun

Well D and I hosted our first ever Earth's Best baby food party this afternoon.  What's that, you ask?  Well, it is an opportunity to get together with babies/toddlers and their fabulous Moms and try out great products and swap stories.  I had so much fun with those that were able to make it.

Table of Goodies.  Earth's Best provided me with coupons to get different stages of baby food for each guest.  They also provided bibs, teething biscuits and samples of oatmeal cereal as well.  I bought some extra goodies too: Earth's Best crackers and apple fruit bars - they were a hit!

 David and I created a balloon room in the back/movie room of our house.  We blew up over 100 balloons for the little ones to enjoy!

 D running through the balloons!

 All the Mommies and their children!  Three kiddos 11-13 months and two kiddos 18 months - thanks for coming everyone!!

 Having a snack.  

 More balloon time fun!

 More snacks!!

Well, my littlest pumpkin turned 11 months yesterday!  I have said it a million times but I really cannot believe how fast time seems to go by these days.  We managed to take the kiddos down to the local pumpkin patch and snap a few pictures.  Enjoy!
