The Life & Times of Mommiehood

Here I am finding my way through uncharted waters.

I love Christmas.

Once work was finally done for the year it finally started feeling like Christmas.

Today we were able to do our annual stocking extravaganza.

The hubby and I started this tradition eleven years ago when we were newlyweds. We had no money and had totally forgotten about stockings. We went to Target and each got $25. The fun part was avoiding each other and the challenge was finding enough things to stuff a stocking for only $25. We had so much fun we have done it every year.

Over the years we have sometimes spent more, but we still go to Target, and we still do our best to avoid each other. We now incorporate the kids, the boy helps pick out gifts for the girl and whichever parent doesn’t have the boy gets things for him. Eventually, we hope to have the kids pick out gifts for each other on their own like we do for each other, and maybe sometimes we will switch up who gets gifts for who, but not till the kids are several years older and can be trusted on their own in a store.

Tonight was just fun in all the chaos of everyone shopping for last minute gifts.

And just cuz, here are the Christmas pics of the kids.

My husband Andrew and I have been married for fourteen years and love living in Colorado! Eight years ago I became a mommie to an awesome little boy and four years ago to my precious little girl. The past few years have been a whirlwind.
