It's the last week before Christmas and it's been a crazy one! With Elyse's party last weekend and Christmas festivities all this week...the time is FLYING by! Hubby & I talked last night and from the night before Elyse's birthday until Christmas, we have 4 free evenings with nothing planned. Granted a lot of this is our own doing, and we are LOVING every minute of it--but it makes for a crazy Christmas season!
So...in summary, here are a few Christmas happenings that have gone on this week...
1. We convinced Elyse to finally try on her entire snow outfit...granted we bribed her with going out to check the mail which took all of about 2 minutes--but at least we got it on her! Now I'm just hoping that it does actually snow again this winter so our little snow bunny can be her fashionable self!
2. Saturday evening was our annual office Christmas party. In case you didn't realize it, Hubby & I work together in my family's insurance office so it's always an intimate fun time! And it's always a great excuse for a date night out, getting all dressed up!

4. On Tuesday evening, Hubby, Elyse & I loaded up and headed to a unique Christmas display about 40 minutes from our home. It's a family who has 300+ inflatables around their home with a walk path so you can walk near them! It was definitely worth the drive. Elyse wasn't so sure about being so close to some of them at first...but when she realized that Mickey, Minnie, & Santa were in the mix, she warmed up to them quickly! I took some pictures, but believe it or not they are actually on my nice camera--and I haven't had a chance to upload them yet. If you live in the SWMO area I would definitely go check it out--it's free entertainment and a fun little family excursion!
