Merry Christmas, Friends

Oh yeah. Christmas is awesome.
Happy holidays to all of my cute blog friends. You are nice. And I hope you got lots of presents. ;) 

Clockwise from Top Left:
Coopaloops is in all kinds of love with his gift from Santa. It's the Hape All Season House - Unfurnished. We almost ordered it from Amazon but ended up finding it at Homesense a few weeks before Christmas - and I had a friends and family coupon for 30% off! (Currently there is a family of bubble guppies living in the house, LOL.)
I made a giant mess of our dining room table with craft supplies. I haven't even cleaned it up yet. It's a good thing we took a break from hosting Christmas dinner this year. It would have been a little awkward for people to eat on top of craft punches. Oh how I love craft punches. 
Coops helped me with all of my wrapping and decorating this year. He and I inspected the Christmas lights to find out why some were burnt out. It turns out that after about a half hour of fiddling around (and getting super frustrated) I realized that they were our old outdoor lights and not our new indoor lights. Oh. That would explain why they were covered in mud.
I found the cutest Christmas pajamas at The Superstore this year. Cooper passed out at Grandma and Grandpa's house after a few too many late nights and oh so much Christmas excitement.
We had our tree up and decorated a week before the big day. I'm telling you it was a Christmas miracle! We switched things up and got a Fraser Fir instead of a Scotch Pine. It's really pretty. I was mad at myself for letting the water go dry the other day (and subsequently killing the tree) but as we were watching a Christmas movie later that night we heard mysterious slurping noises. Busted! It turns out it was Lexie drinking all of the water from the tree stand. Silly dog.
I'm really happy with how my Christmas wrapping turned out this year. I left the tags blank in hopes that I would get around to stamping the names with my cute stamper-thingie. Didn't happen though. I ended up scribbling the names on (okay it was perfect teacher printing) with a pen on Christmas Eve. Oh well, at least it was my favourite Sharpie Pen. ;)
P.S. How was your Christmas?
P.P.S. What did Santa bring your toddler? Inquiring minds want to know..... ;)


  1. Okay, my kiddos didn't get this but I thought it was brilliant...My sister-in-law picked up some free, refrigerator boxes from a local store and turned them into a little hut, with windows and doors...So fun, I should have thought of it. Cute pictures!

    1. Doh - why didn't I think of that!?!? Awesome idea!!!

  2. Hi! I'm not sure if you'll see this comment since this post is so old but I just found your blog today and have spent hours looking through it (even though I have an exam tomorrow... oops :p). I just wanted to say how lovely your style is, and your sense of humour. I particularly wanted to comment on this post because 1. I love all things related to Christmas and 2. I thought it was lovely that you gave Cooper such a beautiful doll's house as a present- I think that sometimes people get so caught up in what are "girl's" toys and what are "boy's" toys, when kids just don't see that distinction! That is one cute kid with some lovely parents. Best of luck with baby number 2.
