A Little Bit of This & That - The Perfectly Imperfect Mama

A Little Bit of This & That

by - Wednesday, December 20, 2017

It's Tuesday afternoon & I am curled up on my bed writing this post while baby girl kicks away in my belly.  I'm pretty sure it's a feeling I will never forget!  She likes to stay up in my rib cage just like Cooper & Millie Jo did so I am constantly having to push her down.  I can't believe we only have 10-13 weeks left.  INSANE!

Know what else is insane?!?  There is only FIVE days until Christmas!!

Today I am filling you in on what we've been up to lately!

So let's play catch up ...

My goodness we have had ALL the things going on around here!
A few weeks ago, the schools in our little town got out early because the parade.  Millie Jo had spent the night with Mimi so when I got Coop out of school we had a little date!  He requested a Sun Drop slushy & Subway for lunch.  This mama was totally fine with that!

That afternoon, we went & picked up Millie Jo & on our way it started snowing.
And later that evening we went to dinner with Paw-Paw David ...
 What's a Friday night without a little bit of Target!?! 😉
Two weeks ago our friends welcomed their baby girl into the world!
Look at all that hair!!
So, SO happy for their little family.
 Millie Jo was in the parade again this year for dance & LOVED it!
 Look at her sweet little face!!
These two love to spend time with Grammy & Poppy Pop.
They got to go on the Nascar race track, see all the Christmas lights & even got to see Santa while they were there!

I mean, who doesn't love a good Christmas party + fun photo booth!?!
A few weeks ago, Dan & I went to the Crisis Pregnancy Center Christmas party & had SO much fun!
Last week we went & had lunch with Cooper at school for his Christmas lunch.
And later that week all the girls [plus my cousin, Ivan] went out for Italian to celebrate my sister's birthday!
I LOVE them all so much!!
Ever since Dan went back to first shift, I have been having to wake this girl up at 7:00 every morning so we can take Cooper to school.  Typically either I would take him or Dan & the other would stay home with Millie Jo so she could sleep.  But now waking up so early, you can find her most evenings asleep on the couch, floor, bean bag ... pretty much anywhere before 7:00pm!

On Monday night we went to a friend's house to bake + decorate cookies ...
 We have done this for the past few years & my kiddos always look forward to it!
This little framily just keeps growing & growing! 
Ok, so there is A LOT of what we've had going on & looking through the pictures on my phone, I think I have caught y'all up on everything!

Today is the first day of Christmas break & we couldn't be happier!!
[Insert my happy dance here]

Happy Wednesday, friends!
