Friday Favorites!

It's so hard to believe that we're getting so close to Christmas!
I'm linking up today to share some of our recent favorite moments.

{one}  Counting down to Christmas has been a lot of fun for the little cowboys.  They love punching out their chocolate candy from their advent calendars every morning and getting a small token from our countdown tree. At the two week mark this week they were really pleased with special Christmas DVDs (contrary to Kal's face).  
Would someone please teach my child to smile and look at the camera?!

 {two}  Visiting Santa was certainly a recent favorite!  We waited over an hour at our local museum last Sunday but it was well worth the wait.  
Kal snuck in a little nap while we were in line...
This pic was taken by our Chamber Director and made it on our town Facebook page
"All tuckered out waiting to see Santa Claus at the museum!"
Keeler told Santa that he wants an electrical John Deere tractor with a trailer.  Kallahan asked for a choo-choo train again.  They both also mentioned John Deere tractors.  Hmmmm, wonder wherever I will find such a thing? Ha!

 {three}  Holiday parties are in full swing and they're always my fav!  Last Saturday we had my work party.  We went out to a nice dinner and then went bowling (just keeping it classy).  It's very low key but we had a great time.  One of my co-worker's daughters watched the little cowboys along with her little brother (which they LOVED).  It worked out great and we'll have to use her again.

On Monday, I hosted my Ladies of Junior Civic annual Christmas party.  The officers helped me with the dinner, we wrapped presents for an adopted local needy family and then had a small gift exchange.
It's such a great time with some of my favorite ladies and it feels so good to be able to help make a local family have a little bit nicer Christmas than they may of had otherwise. 

{four}  Christmas Light Parade Fun.
 On Wednesday night, the little cowboys came out and helped us with our work parade float.  This year, Adam (our awesome parade coordinator) had the precious idea to build a sleigh and then stage the reindeer as John Deere toys --- Santa and his reinDEERE.  It was super cute and we ended up placing third place overall.
We don't have many folks with small children at work so I got the job of finding riders for our toys.  It worked out great because all of Keeler's besties ended up on the float.  Thanks again to all our darling ReinDEERES.

{five}  Last but far from least, that moment when I was taking all these parade photos
 and Kallahan said, "I give you kiss, mom."
