Busy Busy Little Bees

Our days usually fly by - but with so much on our to do list - the last few weeks have flown by faster than usual.

Elle's super cute Christmas tree outfit
The first weekend of December, Lee got to work on our Christmas lights. He had a few little helpers in the front yard...Elle and her friend, Maddie. I just love those two little girls and I can't wait to see these two little ones grow up together!

That afternoon we helped celebrate the first birthday of our very favorite 1 year old. His momma and daddy hosted an amazing winter wONEderland filled with super cute art projects, amazing hot chocolate and a photo "booth." After we partied the afternoon away and visited with our precious Witt, Lee and I took Elle to River Oaks to look at the Christmas lights. River Oaks is the uber ritzy area of Houston where the mansions sprawl over acres of land. Absolutely beautiful. I can honestly say that when we would round the corner and come across some of the beautiful lights I was clapping with giddiness. Elle didn't really share my enthusiasm but a few of the displays caused her little mouth to fall open and her eyes were glued to the window. I just love seeing her experience new things! That night when we got home, Lee informed me that we needed 15 more strands of lights for our rinky dink tree in our front yard - he's dreamin' big!

Our next big task on our to do list is to get our Christmas cards out. Well - first we have to take the family picture and with 2 dogs and a toddler - that is much easier said than done.

Elle all bundled up to help Lee feed the dogs Elle putting up her two new big ornaments on her tree in her room...her outfit is a repeat from last glad it still fits!!!

Is it sad that I am wishing for a girl just so we can borrow some of Elle's ridiculously cute outfits! She is adorable and I just wanna eat those pig tails up!

I LOVE the middle pic of Elle and Maddie. It looks like Elle is asking her (in a really southern accent) "Now where in the world did you get those cha-cha footed PJ's? I must get me some!"
