I posted a while back about painting our fireplace. Once the Christmas decorations came down, everything looked so sad and bare so I set out last weekend for things to decorate! I bought the lanterns, basket, blanket, and cabinet to spruce up the space a bit. The fireplace is still missing something. I feel like the mantle is too high and I want to fill that space. Maybe it's just me.
I also rearranged the shelves and found myself with an entire empty shelf. I'm on the lookout for some books and goodies to fill the space. It will be a work in progress for a while.
This year I want to be better about working with Emmy academically. She does not have a love for learning like her brother, so I'm going to have to be creative. We picked up Fruit Loops at the store on Monday so we could do a little color recognition and sorting.
Bryce went back to school Monday, which meant we were all back to our normal routine. The picture below is NOT typically our normal routine. I was fixing dinner and they were watching a movie together. Usually when I'm fixing dinner, they are chasing each other and someone is usually mad at the other or hurt.
I had a picture on my time hop on Tuesday of Emmy from last year when she was a month away from her second birthday. So I decided a needed a picture of her when she was one month away from three!
After dinner on Tuesday night we went to visit Nanny because she had just gotten a pretty purple cast that the kids wanted to see and sign.
Bryce signed his and Emmy's name and Emmy drew a picture.
These two bring a smile to Nanny's face, even if she's in a cast!
My neighbor made me this fun monogrammed scarf for Christmas and I finally figured out how to wear it yesterday! I'm not a fan of a selfie, but I was so proud of myself and my hair girl that we were able to get the scarf on with the monogram right side up. Every time I do it, it ends up upside down.
Taylor came over to play with Emmy today and they had SO much fun. I never managed to get any other pictures than this, but a good time was had by all.
The bitter cold has arrived so we've been hunkered down inside eating chili and soup all week!
