This week has been busy, scrolling through social media has me convinced that we are the only school system in the country who goes to school until the day before Christmas Eve, and fitting in everything while still getting me to work & Waverly to school has been a little crazy. I had my class party with my preschoolers on Tuesday, and then we did Waverly’s the following day, which was so precious!! As bittersweet as it is to watch her grow, I absolutely love seeing her in her element, giggling and holding hands with her best little girlfriends in her class. She had about a million Christmas crafts in her book bag to bring home, the sweetest plate with her handprints on it, and a letter to Santa where she asked for a “turtle, a kite, and roller skates”. None of which she has ever, ever mentioned before. 😉 Waverly also had her dance class holiday performance (which I loved watching, while simultaneously attempting to keep Avalon from storming the stage with her).
Big news, Avalon learned how to say Santa!!!! Favorite parts of Christmas for her so far include any activity that involves sugar or sweets and looking at any lights (she says “liiiiiiiights”), she could care less about unwrapping presents and would rather her big sister do that work for her. She has been rocking this red hat with poms for most of the month and I never want to forget how sweet her little face looks in it, with her bright blue eyes and chunky cheeks.
2 – Modern Burlap – Swaddle and lightweight blankets are a favorite around here, for when my babies are babies but even as they grow. Waverly likes to wrap her dolls in them and of course we still use them for snuggling or for bedtime when they don’t need a heavy blanket. Modern Burlap’s prints are the cutest ever, black & white is just so versatile and classic, we love them all!!! They also have crib sheets, bibs, changing pad covers, and other products that are perfect for baby, kids, and for decorating! 🙂
3 – KB Cute Designs – Another small business with the cutest swaddles, hats, blankets, knotted gowns … all with such fun colors and prints! We got a new set of sheets recently in the most beautiful floral print from here, it has totally changed the look of the girls rooms! Such a fun update!
4 – Beckaloo Fashions – One of my favorite things to dress the girls in has always been bloomers, during summer & spring but also in the cooler months paired with tights. it’s just too cute! Beckaloo Fashions has the cutest options, we recently got this dotty for Avalon and it’s been on repeat for weeks. I also LOVE the chambray pair pictured above, just so versatile year-round!
5 – A Little Lady Shop – You know we love a good bow around here!!!! 🙂 These bows are so well-made and adorable, and she also offers a subscription service to get bows year round. I love the idea of this, it would be such a fun gift for a new girl mom or even possibly for a birthday.
6 – Gathre – I can’t say enough good things about these mats, we got one a little over a year ago and we use it ALL the time. They are wipeable, portable, and compact, and come in so many different sizes. Well worth the money!
Hope you all are having the most amazing CHRISTMAS week!!!! Can’t believe how close it already is! XO
My husband took off early last night and we took the girls to their first ever polar express ride! They loved it, there is just nothing as magical as beautiful holiday lights, Christmas music, and lollipops to keep them sitting. 😉 This is a new tradition for us for sure.
We would love for you to link-up with us, just dress your babes in their jams and post away! It starts today and goes until December 26th! And happy Thursday, friends! XO
