I love this time of year- even with all of the stress that may come along with it! It's a season that I have to be sure to be intentional, to plan things in advance, but also to know when to say no and take care of yourself and stay home. This year, I'm trying SO hard to do fun activities with Emmie, to spend a lot of family time, and really talk about the Christmas story!
This past week was so full of Christmas fun! Friday night we went to the Handle's Messiah concert in the new Liberty music hall. Oh my goodness, this concert totally blew my expectations out of the water! Emerson loved seeing all of the instruments in person and listening and singing along to all of the music! She was pointing out each instrument that she's learned about at school!
We LOVED going to the Lynchburg Christmas Parade this year! Even though the weather was less than ideal, it was a lot of fun to be out there and of course, to see Santa at the end of the night!
On Saturday morning, we had the BIGGEST surprise for Emerson! We set up Christmas photos with with Liz Cook and had Santa come out and surprise her! Her reaction was priceless and something I want to do with her every single year! We've seen the most amazing sneak peek- I can't wait to get the rest... and don't you worry- I'll be sharing!!
Michael & I attended an ugly Christmas sweater party on Saturday... and Mike's outfit is too good not to share! ;) I went the easy route and had a stocking on my shirt hold my wine bottle! You're welcome for the laugh today...
How was your weekend? Did you do anything Christmas-y or unique? Or were you able to stay home, relax and recharge?!
