One of my favorite weeks.

{Photo credit for the above ^^^ goes to my lovely sister Caitlin}

It's Monday.
It's snowing...three inches so far snowing.
It's windy...35 mph wind gust windy.

Our house is warm and cozy... sleeping peacefully in his swing.

.....boys laughing and doing who knows what in the basement, I don't think I want to know.
I hear the keyboard, I hear talking, I hear things moving around. It's loud{ish}.

...the girls and I are making Thanksgiving place cards in the dining room.
{we're using a Martha Stewart glue pen and Orange Sorbet Glitter..
because in my opinion...there's no point in using glitter if it's not Martha's glitter.'s the best. and a bottle lasts forever and ever and ever.} 

{this photo ^^^also on my camera from my dear sister...
now I want coffee and the NY Times....even though I don't read the NY Times}

{Can a baby be overloved? If the answer is yes...then this baby most definitely is.}

This is one of my favorite weeks of the year.
I love, love, LOVE this week and the weekend that follows.

This week we get ready for Thanksgiving.
Things run smoothly because we do what I wrote here. 

Thanksgiving. {we are hosting for the 11th year in a row...we love it}
The Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade!
Friday morning shopping.
Cutting down our Christmas tree!
My awesome husband's birthday.
Decking our halls.
Watching our first Christmas movie of the season.
Implementing the "Christmas Music Only" rule!..although sometimes I break that one.

and my favorite part?...Jeff is usually around all weekend.

{said with a heavy Chicago/Italian accent...."Hey, Don't look at me. I have mittens on." ^^^}

Hope your week is off to a great start.
Happy Monday.
