... because I'm just too doggone exhausted tonight to write anything interesting.

Instead, I'm just sharing a few photos from our day:

We decked the halls this afternoon (a bit earlier than we usually do,
but the afternoon was clear and we just love decorating for Christmas!)
(notice anything extra little and cute about that above photo?)

The boys took a break from hall-decking for some cocoa.
Oliver got to use Ryan's little espresso mug - it was just the right size!

And, a couple of shots of my growing midsection at 24 weeks pregnant.

Grow, Hazel, grow!!!

That's all for tonight. *yawn* It's bedtime for this sleepy Mama!

Dee said...

I see you "cracked" open the christmas decorations ;-)

Sarah Robbins said...

How cute are you?! Love the sweater that shows off the Hazel-baby growing. I am working so hard to not put out my decorations till after Thanksgiving since we are having the whole family over. . . :)

I see some baby belly and a baby crack! How cute are you and It looks like little miss Hazel is growing just fine!

Chelsa said...

You are wayyyy too cute! I'm 26 weeks today, but I look like a whale compared to you!

Tracy said...

Love the crack! I hope that you are feeling better now. :) I love the tree and I'm totally jealous! Eric would let us decorate until after thanksgiving. "rules" and all.

Christine said...

We're decorated, too!! It feels slightly weird to have the only tree up in the neighborhood, but I know I'll feel great once Thanksgiving is done.

I, too, love the baby butt crack and the baby bump.

Angela said...

Love the Christmas stuff! We put ours up already, too.

You look fantastic!! I'm 21 weeks and feel like a big blob! :)

Brittanie said...

I got my tree up, but not decorated (a little early for us too. I'm usually an avid day-after-Thanksgiving-er. All of my Thanksgiving stuff is still out though, so it's kind of a mish mash of two holidays. lol

Love your little belly, and the crack shot is great too! lol

Jennifer said...

That was so NOT a lame blog post! It was adorable!

Becky said...

I wish I could get my decorating done! I cannot bring myself to put up the tree until after I go shopping Friday morning after Thanksgiving!! Then I blast the Christmas music and dance around the house with the kids and bake cookies!! Ooooohhhh I'm getting excited already! And you are just too cute!! Lovin' the baby belly shots! And how adorable are your clothes?? I can safely say I never looked that good pregnant!!! Sweet picture of Mr. Droppy Drawers too! Hope you don't plan to use it against him later in life!;) I could care less if you put up a post full of pics or just stop by to say hello! Love hearing from you no matter what you have to say!

Also love the little butt crack!

Mary said...

Someday Oliver is going to be teased with that first picture! LOL!

Michelle said...

Cute photos!

I personally can't get into the Christmas spirit before Thanksgiving but Thanksgiving is my husband's favorite holiday so we have to give it due time. Glad you guys enjoyed your decorating!

Chantelle said...
