I can barely see my kitchen table.

We enjoyed a relatively low-key weekend.
Friday night Kevin and his buddies went to the big Foothill game, and the kids and I snuggled on the couch to watch 'The Grinch' (the Jim Carrey version).
Saturday we did housework, watched the hilarious yet ridiculous 'Stepbrothers' with Bobby & Ryan (how appropriate), had a yummy spaghetti dinner, and braved the bitter cold for downtown Pleasanton's annual holiday parade (complete with Santa in a firetruck and the tree lighting!).
Sunday Camden and I hit up Target and the craft stores, then we rode bikes at Papa's, and Chloe went to see Ava (a Gingerbread girl) perform in the Nutcracker.


With inspiration from Polka Dot Mom, I also managed to complete my monogrammed wreath!
{You can barely make out the cute polka dot button ornaments here, proving my desperate need for a new camera.}

Which leaves:

Tegan's baby shower invites,
{Speaking of which, I WON the sling!! She can't have it 'til the shower.}

Chayse's birthday party invites,
{theme: Buggin' Out!}

a birthday gift
{I'm going with the reverse applique again.},

and this Christmas banner...

...to match these stockings.
{No, it's not Camden's first Christmas, but I wasn't 100% excited about Pottery Barn's quilted stocking collection this year. Here's hoping they step it up next year!}

And that pretty much sums up the current piles on my table.

I guess we can't eat dinner for a while!

I love that I got a sneak preview of the shower invites! I knew they would be awesome. :)

I miss posts like these. :)

Actually, I just miss you.

Love you!

(I've been reminiscing on your blog for like half an hour now-- okay, most of that time was spent remembering the vanilla bean cheesecake at my shower-- but still.)
