Friday evening was a pretty fancy, schmancy date night for Hubby & I. We left Elyse with my parents, got semi-dressed up and headed out for a nice dinner at a local Italian place, Gilardi's. The restaurant has been there for years & we'd yet to visit and I can't believe we waited so long...it was delicious! After dinner we headed to our local theater for a performance of Cirque Dreams Holidaze. It was a fun performance with a wide variety of acts, including some amazing performances by some children. So, so thankful for our date nights!
Saturday morning I headed to work & then came home to hit the ground running for the rest of the day. I headed to a small baby shower for my good friend Shauna & then ran back home to pick up Hubby & Elyse for the big event of the weekend.
|Elyse was dressed in her holiday best for the special occasion!|
|She was definitely in fine form...we have ourselves a little "ham" when it comes to making new friends! She takes a bit to warm up, but then she's all smiles!|
|He? or She? Open to See!|

We are so excited that Elyse will have another little girl to grow up with. They will only be about 18 months apart, and since we only live about 20 miles from each other you can be sure they'll be close. I figure it'll be just like them being sisters without all the constant fighting! ha! Lots of tea parties & shopping trips will be in our future for sure! We can't wait to meet Baby Girl Smart!

This weekend has just been RIDICULOUS as far as winter goes. I love beautiful temps just as much as the next person; however, there's just something weird about going Christmas shopping or looking at Christmas lights when it's 70+ degrees outside! But...we took advantage of it anyway & took a nice family walk around the subdivision before heading out for small group. This was our last meeting before the holidays take over & I'm definitely going to miss meeting each week!
