354 / 365: It’s Cricket’s Christmas Party today at preschool, which is appropriate because it’s “freeze-your-knees” cold out, as we say in the Shove household.
355 / 365: Now it’s Emma Vance’s turn for a Christmas Party, and she’s enjoying her luncheon casually, haha!
356 / 365: Emma Vance cuts up apples for homemade applesauce. #knifeskillz
357 / 365: The girls play with the dollhouse my mother had purchased for them years ago. (Yes, people can send gifts from heaven.)
358 / 365: SNOW MOUNTAIN! These little Southern girls’ hearts are full. And cold.
359 / 365: It’s amazing how Santa always finds time to FaceTime our girls on his busiest night of the year so they can remind him of their wish list. *wink wink*
360 / 365: Good morning, Christmas! (Note E.V.’s mismatched pajamas, since she threw up fried Oreos and funnel cake last night. Yuck.)
361 / 365: Now THAT’s a Pumpkin Smash!
362 / 365: I do love him, and I do love getting dressed up. Off to the Retro 8 Films Christmas Party at Marcel!
363 / 365: We are all in the island spirit as we head off to see “Moana” with Papadon!
364 / 365: Working on letting go of the last of the girls’ baby clothes, and it seems E.V. is having just as hard of a time parting with them as I am!
365 / 365: When the Carleys are in town, there’s no telling what can happen…
366 / 365: Leap Year Bonus! (And, yes, I watched — and even participated — as this nonsense occurred because “I’m not like the other moms, I’m a cool mom.” ;)
