A quick blogging hiatus

I have been feeling kind of blah about blogging lately- not much to tell everyone about! 

Christmas was great, I had so much fun hanging out with family and friends.
On Christmas Eve was busy. It's my moms birthday so we had a big fire to celebrate. 
                     

After the fire I went for a walk with Will, my friend Michelle and her brother James into the community forest to check out some Christmas trees that we had heard about. Someone went in and decorated some trees with solar powered Christmas lights and Christmas ornaments so that they light up at night! It was super cool!


Christmas day was super fun, the best part was hanging out with baby Eli, he is getting so big and cute! Hanging out with the rest of the fam wasn't too bad either! 

I was spoiled by will, and am currently writing this post from my new iPad! I'm interested to see how the format turns out :)

I am planning on a little blogging hiatus until I get back from my trip to Belize around mid January. I am getting super excited for warm weather and sunshine!!

I hope everyone had a great Christmas, and has a safe and happy New Years!

Canadian Blogger Christmas Swap

Last year I participated in the Canadian Blogger Christmas Swap, and I loved it! I found lots of great new blogs to read, and got a cute little Christmas package from Nicole!
 
 

This year I got the most adorable ornament from Tennille! Check it out:



I love that it was personalized, and that Bax and Murph were included! It looks totally awesome on my tree!! Thanks so much Tennille!

Weekend recap.. a day late

It's December!!

Oh my lanta, where did this year go?? Seriously, I cannot believe how fast time is flying. And how much I'm sucking at blogging. My goal for December is to blog 2 times/week, hopefully I can keep up with that!

December is my favorite month, I love Christmas and everything that goes along with it!
Friday evening was the Santa Claus parade, I went with Will and my two besties Kirsten and Michelle (ps I think besties is a really silly word... but I kinda like it!) Our town is not super big so the parade was kinda lame. We went for sushi beforehand though, so that totally makes up for it!



Call me the purple people eater



Saturday was a non Christmassy day (boo!), I went and ran stairs with Kirsten in the AM and spent the rest of the day tidying the house and just hanging out. Will and I had a date night, we went for dinner and then went to watch Catching Fire. I LOVED it!! So amazing. I really want to read the books over again, I might have to put them onto the list of books I want to read in Belize!

On Sunday, Will and I went out with my mom and dad to chop down a Christmas tree. We took our Quads and our dogs out on Sunday afternoon, and we found some pretty nice trees...winning! We usually take forever to pick out the perfect tree, I think it helped that there was no snow this year.

Sunday night we got a huuuuge dump of snow, so my regular hour and 15 min drive to work on Monday morning ended up taking me 2 and a half hours. It was crazy, I felt like I was driving on a bush road. I love snow, but I am most definitely not a fan of winter driving.

I hope everyone has a fabulous week! I am starting the Elf on the Shelf with my class tomorrow, I think it should be hilarious!

Anyone else do elf on the shelf? Any fun elf ideas?
