BACK in all my randomness

oh my gosh, ear infections are the devil. Seriously. It took me almost 2 1/2 weeks to get over that mess but I am officially feeling better! I'm so happy to be back in the swing of things, we have so much going on right now and I'm ready to tackle it all!

I've been busy doing PR stuff for Junior League and trying to get us some great recognition for all of the amazing things we have going on. We have such an incredible group this year and I love being a part of it all. This weekend is our fabulous Holiday Ball and it will take place at The Tremont House in Galveston. Such a wonderful hotel! It's actually where B and I got married almost five years ago. I'm so excited.

We've been trying freally hard to get into the Christmas spirit but with temps in the 80's, it's been difficult.

B decided at 14 months it was time for Lainey to learn how to dunk a cookie. These two...

On Saturday we went to Dickens on the Strand. I haven't been in years, I mean, since I was a kid probably. Obviously you can see that I'm in shorts so it was a completely different experience than I remember. We used to get all bundled up, drink hot chocolate and listen to the carolers. This year, we wore shorts, sweat, and wore sunblock. Oh, Texas.

For Lainey's 14 month celebration on Sunday we went to watch the Texans game and have ice cream.

Lainey is growing so quickly and is SUCH a girl. It's so fun to see her personality coming out. She is all about bracelets, mirrors, brushes, makeup brushes, and most of all, shoes.

We attempted to put up our decorations but our Christmas tree lights are out, our garland lights are out, we are hoping to move soon so we didn't unpack our town, we haven't put up outside decorations yet, basically, we are big time slacking. Big time.

So, we've decided we will go get a real tree tomorrow night. We haven't had one in years so I'm pretty excited about it. Plus, our tree is old, small and kinda sad. I'm ready for a big tree!

Have you decorated? I'm about to hit your blogs to find out!

Also, I'm participating in this bloghop! Check it out!

Caleb is also learned to dunk his cookies...only he used the toilet when I wasn't looking :P ICK!

Crazy that even at such a young age they are into girl/boy toys. C is all about cars and "tactors" (tractors) these days!
