A Week in the Life

A few of the snippets from this week 

I spent 6 hours helping Ellie and Adam clean out their room--including the deepest darkest corners of their closet.

Ellie is so excited about her newly cleaned room that she's spending hours a day in there and  bragging about it to every person she sees.

I thought I was wildly hilarious when writing our Christmas letter this year and I am hoping that it comes off as at least slightly funny and not totally stupid.  Because I was worried that  my attempt at humor may be a little too goofy for  some people, I'm sending edited versions  or letterless cards to some people.  My goal is to have them all out by the end of the weekend.

I fell sacked-out, sound asleep at Cami's orchestra concert, totally missing the grand finale. 

Our (Ellie's) Elf on the Shelf is back on the prowl.   Stay tuned for a blogpost coming soon!

I have a new favorite cookbook and it has reignited my excitement for trying new recipes again!   I've made out-of-this-world rugelach (pastries), the best meatballs ever, and spaghetti squash tacos that we've made three times already and I still daydream about the next time (tomorrow)!  

We went to a couple's white elephant gift exchange tonight and one of our two shabbily wrapped gifts ended up being the very first one chosen of the night and the other ended up being the very last one chosen.

I need that spaghetti squash taco recipe. I have a spaghetti squash sitting on my counter and i'm sure Jackson would prefer tacos to spaghetti squash! Sounds yummy!
