it's a wonderful life

tonight i wrapped presents for the kids,
and sean put together a doll house for max.
the little screws are even pink.
i adore it.
we watched "it's a wonderful life."
and i just sat their the entire time with my scissors and tape 
and was so overcome with happiness. 
happy to be wrapping presents next to the christmas trees,
in a warm house,
with three beautiful children sleeping upstairs.
so happy to have a husband like sean.
staying up late to put together a doll house for three hours.
such a catch i caught in that one!
it's a wonderful life.
earlier tonight it was stroganoff and sugar cookie night with grandma carol.
she had her best friend make my kids aprons for the occasion.
thank you cherie!
even one for baby man chase ray.
with little candy cane and candy ribbon prints on them.
they were so cute in them.
brennan wasn't feeling good and ended up watching Cinderella on the couch.
while max basked in her time alone with grandma carol at the cookie counter,
cutting out sugar cookies with santa, stocking, snowman, stocking, and star shapes.
and frosting and decorating them with candy crushes and red and green m&m's.

i want to sleep in until noon tomorrow.
there is no way that is happening.
i will settle for watching christmas movies all morning.
and i'm hoping and praying that no one starts puking:)

Wasn't that snow glorious? Just in time, too. Stroganof for a long time was my favorite food. Yummy!
