Some Scenes From The Weekend (+ A Winner)
Millie getting in some mandolin time in her new (gifted) Polarn O. Pyret striped cozies... She's obsessed with these bad boys.
My friend Sarah's magical ornament exchange...

We partook in a plethora-o-festive this weekend including a cozy double date on Friday with our besties Julie and Tim, a sweet ornament exchange/craft party at my immensely talented friend Sarah's house and two fun kiddo birthday parties.
We also took-in Millie's class singing carols in the middle of our toniest shopping mall. It was a pretty cute enterprise, 40 or so four-year-olds belting out holiday tunes in their sparkly duds. But the best part was during the finale when Millie decided she might need to, well...pick her nose. After the deed was done, she spent the rest of the performance in alternating states of disgust and confusion while pondering how to dispose of her "bounty". Oh and did I mention that she was in the front row...center??!
Friends, I realize I am veering from my typical content here and have landed firmly in "mommy" territory. Suffice to say, it's not very glamorous, but here's the thing, "Boogergate 2011" made me laugh...until my stomach hurt. I spend a bulk of my days organizing and planning and shepherding and trying to get things just right...every once in a while I need a good reminder that no matter what I do my kids are going to occasionally pick their noses (in front of 300+ people, in the middle of a really nice shopping mall). It's just going to happen. You just have to go with it.
And in some weird way, that makes me happy.
Ok now for the winner of the World's Smallest Post Kit giveaway... Congrats Kristen!
