Our Christmas Party

Harper helped host her very first Christmas party this weekend, and as you'll see in the pictures, she was thrilled! ;) I swear, the minute we put that kid in a cute outfit, she freezes and refuses to give a smile. Luckily, she still looks pretty darn cute with all the pouty lip & chubby cheek action going on.

Flannel Shirt, H&M Skirt, Boots, Harper's Headband, Sweater & Denim Romper from Gap last season (similar here & here), Sparkle Tights

We obviously love our plaid/flannel this time of year! I was excited to have found Harper this adorable plaid headband to match... I think she liked it much more than the antlers that I had her in the other day.


We just had a few friends over for dinner & drinks, followed by some baby entertaining & card games. We pushed the munchkin all around the house in her little red wagon to get some smiles.

 We managed to get this face.


 We did a white elephant gift exchange, a Chili bar (with hubby's bomb chili recipe) & the obligatory Christmas Vacation quote-off. 
"Is your house on fi-yah, Clark?"

Little babe got a little too tired to party, so she was rockin' her jams in the only family pic we managed to get.


Hope you all had a fun weekend as well, rocking your ugly sweaters or Christmas baking the day away! I'm about to blow up our kitchen with holiday sweets & treats and can't wait to eat at least half of what I pull out of the oven.

  1. Love your white skirt - saw it at H&M right after I had my baby girl but wasn't quite back in shape enough to wear it yet!!! Also have the Hunter boots and love!!! And my mom just got Waverly the exact same PJs for Xmas Eve night (with her name on the butt?). Guess we have similar style!!! Merry Christmas!!!

  3. I got my 7 month old the Radio Flyer walker wagon for Christmas...she's going to looooooove being pulled around the house in it until she is walking and can push it herself! It's the only wooden walker I could find with clicking wheels that have enough resistance to not go flying across our oak floors...and I just love the classic style!

  15. I absolutely love your blog! I've been following it religiously since I became pregnant and found it on Pinterest (my daughter is now almost two months old). I always look forward to new posts to see what your beautiful family is up to, and I find this blog useful in so many ways! Love your holiday spirit; a girl after my own heart! Adore the Home Alone chalkboard!

  16. did you already do an in depth-ish post on getting your body back after pregnany? i didnt think ive read a full one maybe just a few tips but you look *amazing* and would love to hear what you have to say on the topic. (the whole post baby body, especially the tummy area, is kind of terrifying for me...) ive read your blog since you were pregnant and cant believe harper is going to be a year old soon. time has flown and im sure it really has for your guys!! merry christmas :)
