Five on Friday- Toddlers, Christmas, Family

Happy Friday! As usual I'm linking up with the ladies for Five on Friday.

1. Toddlers

Our little miss has been throwing us for a loop lately with her naps. Usually she takes one nap, in the early afternoon, and sleeps for about an hour and a half to two hours. All week long she has flat out refused to nap, until around 3:00pm or so. What gives?! I'll lay her down in her crib and hear her sing, talk, and then start to call out "MAMAAAA!!" We also had a night that she was up with Mama and Dada until 11:00pm! Oh toddlers. I never know what to expect sometimes!

2. Christmas Cards

Our Christmas cards came in the mail this week and I'm so excited to send them out! I'll share how they turned out after they're all mailed and received. We went with this design from Tiny Prints and we couldn't be happier. We've already started receiving cards and I'm thinking of a way to display them. I love this idea from Martha Stewart above. Do you display Christmas cards?

3. Victoria Secret Fashion Show

Did you catch the Victoria Secret Fashion Show earlier this week? I don't know about you, but I look forward to it every year! I think of it as the ultimate girl power hour. They always have great live performances, amazing get-ups, and I sit and watch it with a bag of cookies or chocolate and bounce around. Great fun. :)

4. Family Time

We had a great family day yesterday. After not seeing her Dad very much for the last few days, Miss A was SO happy to have him home. We went out to lunch and made a trip to the mall to walk around and attempt to see Santa. She saw him from far away and seemed interested, so we got closer, and he waved to her. She waved back but then immediately clung to me. Haha. So no, we didn't even attempt to get a picture with Santa. Maybe next year?

5. Candy Cane Kiss Cookies

We made our second batch of Christmas cookies and these were delicious! She loved rolling around the balls of dough in the sprinkles and I'm happy to say only tried to eat the raw dough once! I'll be making them again this weekend for a neighborhood caroling event.

Have a great weekend!
