listening to this christmas music.
working on our winter to do list
wearing new been boots every day.
thinking about our next date. trying to do a monthly date with ryan after the last one was so nice :)
wanting to go ice skating here. Anyone ever been?
deciding what to make for dessert for christmas eve. just stumbled upon this cake and it looks so good! However, I feel like I'm usually disappointed in cakes that i make so we'll see.
catching up on Downton Abbey. For some reason I never watched last season and now I'm trying to catch up before season 5 starts in January.
crossing off things slowly from my list 
watching Hazel getting the hang on this little thing called crawling
checking the mail for christmas cards.
browsing the thrift store weekly
thankful for friends with babies

yes.
it's true.
my baby is growing up.
today she seemed to have grown overnight.
every time I realize this I get sad/happy/slow down life feelings.
days keep getting more fun and I am so lucky to be able to spend my days with her.

a december day.

it wasn't just your ordinary december day.
it was a 40 degree december day.
we had to celebrate by staying outside longer then ten minutes!
sure sure we missed the snow but it felt so warm.
we're just hoping that the snow returns for christmas because who doesn't want a white christmas?
