Kinda reminds me of the 'Friends' episode when Rachel and Chandler keep stealing their neighbours cheesecake that gets delivered to her door because it is so delicious!! Oh, I would steal this off someones plate any day!Mmmm...
Has it really been 18 months? Time is flying by and in the craziness of Christmas wrapping, baking, buying and so much more, our little man had his 18 month birthday.
So over breakfast of oatmeal and blueberries, we said Happy 'sorry we forgot yesturday' Birthday!Since this little guy is always on the go, it's been hard to capture pictures of his beautiful happy smile and mullet of curly locks lately, but we tried! His love for the camera helped, and his crazy "cheese" smile kills me! Camera hog!
There's a storm brewing here, but you would never know it by listening to the calming sounds of the morning. Little feet pattering around while mommy and daddy make breakfast, the water pouring from the kettle, the stirring of the spoon in the coffee cup, Christmas music in the background (it's usually Treehouse-but the satelite is down thanks to the snow). Thoughts of pretty paper to wrap gifts in, warm, comforting smells coming from the oven as shortbread cook...these are all plans of a great day to come! k
Here is just a glimpse of Gray's new 'Big Boy' room...
It's coming along nicely and we are fairly on target for the look the I was going for. Although, I still have a pile or so of stuff that came out of the original 'computer room' that has no where to go. All in good time I guess!
Gray put his own touch on his room too by helping Daddy build his dresser!
Today is the first day of December, and like true Ontario weather, it snowed! Not so perfect for all the road tripppin' we did today, but it did look pretty and fluffy falling from the sky! Our day started out at IKEA...I know!! I love Ikea, and found yet another reason to love it today...the bathrooms! I have always wondered how some people manage to get themselves into some of the stalls in the malls and such. Really, there is no room, especially with a purse, shopping bags, coats, etc. You somehow have to maneuver yourself around the door without landing in the toilet. It's a difficulty only a woman would know I guess. Well, add in a growing belly, and it's pretty awkward. Except at Ikea! Welcome to spacious! Walk right in! No fancy moves needed! So nice!
Anyway, we got in and out of there in less then an hour. Yes, thank you internet for providing me with hours of browsing online and printing out a shopping list that included the self serve bin numbers for all the stuff we needed!
We finally made it home after a million more stops and with lots of stuff checked off the ole' Christmas list! Phew!
And brrr...a few things I am thankful for on this cold day:
1. Heated seats in my car-I do not know how I managed without them!
2. Hot Chocolate
3. Candles- like the Apple Cinnamon one that I got at Ikea!
By the way this is in no way an endorsement for Ikea! Haha!!
There is still one other thing on the to do list that has to get done before the end of the week. I am a bit ashamed to even say it. Our Christmas lights are not up yet! The inside is done and decorated, but our outside lights and decor have taken a back seat. December 1st is the first official turn on your lights day, and we missed it. So sad...
Hope you are all having a great week! Pictures of Gray's big boy room coming soon!!
