Weekend Scenes

Happy Monday!  We're coming off another weekend filled with lots of festive events.  We kicked off the weekend Friday afternoon as Derek and I went into the city to see The Nutcracker as we do each year - it's always one of my favorite date nights!  Lovie & Poppy came over to babysit and we had a quick visit to the Christmas village before grabbing dinner and drinks.

This is our fourth year going and each year we get a different nutcracker to bring home and add to our collection - as always we had a blast and enjoyed the show.

Saturday morning was a lazy one for us - and the afternoon too.  Other than going to the gym and grocery store, we had a relaxing day at home in pajamas.

Early evening we took Tatum to a local farm for a Christmas hayride filled with carols and looking at lights.  They had a cute Santa setup as well as bonfires and a big gingerbread house.

We got right back into pajamas when we got home and Tatum and I had fun matching.  Tatum got to stay up a little bit late to enjoy some Saturday night fun.

While Tatum ate his dinner he watched Derek and I make some Christmas cookies.  After he was asleep we ordered takeout and watched Christmas Vacation on the couch.

Yesterday morning Tatum was up bright and early - we did a lot of playing and he sat still long enough for Winnie the Pooh and Christmas Too. 

Late morning we went over to Brunch with Santa at our country club - it was our first time going and we had a great time.  More on that tomorrow!  Tatum took a nice long nap on my lap while I watched Christmas movies and napped myself after.

To finish out the weekend we watched the Cowboys/Eagles game - with the exciting win in overtime Derek continues to refuse to shave as long as the Cowboys keep winning.


  1. Can we please talk about your gorgeous bag!! Love how festive and fun the weekend was! xo, Biana

  2. Yay for the Cowboys winning; what an intense game! And how cute was Tatum at the Christmas hayride -- what a cute idea. And I love y'all's annual Nutcracker date.

  4. Christmastime is so much fun when they can start to understand it even a little and can do all the fun things! Such a fun weekend!!

  5. I love how you guys go all out for Christmas - sounds like the best weekend!

  6. I love that y'all go into the city and see The Nutcracker every year. I used to see it every year when I was little and it's still my favorite ballet to this day. We saw it in NYC in 2012 and it was a dream come true!
