A quiet weekend at home

I’ve been looking forward to this weekend since before Thanksgiving.

Don’t get me wrong~ I love the holidays. Absolutely love them. And witnessing magical moments with the girls and spending amazing time with family & friends was beyond fabulous.

But when this weekend finally arrived, I greeted it with wide-open arms.

We had absolutely nothing on our schedule. No swim lessons, no holiday shopping trips, no parties, no plans whatsoever.

And it was glorious.

The Hubs & I spent Friday night de-Christmas-ify-ing {is that a word?!} our house after the girls went to bed. I’m a huge fan of decorating for the holidays, but wow, it feels so good to have our house put back together!

Little O did tearfully ask if Mommy & Daddy threw away her Christmas tree when she woke up on Saturday morning, but perked right back up after we assured her that it was safely packed away in a box in the basement, taking a long nap until next Christmas. Meltdown avoided. Phew.

Other than that, we had a very laid-back, relaxing weekend.

The Hubs & I broke out our new trendy wine glasses {a Christmas gift from my 88-year-old grandmother…how cute is she?!} and enjoyed a delicious bottle of wine from the local winery we visited on our anniversary

Paired with two little girls asleep before 8 p.m. and a funny movie {Horrible Bosses}, Saturday night was just about perfect.

Other happenings during our quiet weekend at home?

Lego building. 

Smushing two children & a stuffed dog into a Cozy Coupe {Little O’s idea, of course. I think Baby H looks slightly concerned, no?}.

Dancing with Daddy. 

Baby H’s continued quest to eat only big-girl food {we have to sneak in the baby food, we still have a bunch left!}. 

And snuggling. Lots and lots of snuggling.

Little O & her BFF dolls {Chloe {left} and Rapunzel {right}}. 

Lilly & Little O. 

And Mommy & a sweet, sleepy Baby H. 

Love it!

What did you do this weekend? Hope you had a chance to unwind a bit!

Counting My Kisses: Ahhh. I feel so refreshed after our quiet weekend at home. It was so fun just to enjoy the girls and the Hubs without a massive To Do list hanging over our heads! I love our quiet weekends at home~ although these days, our quiet weekends are filled with giggling little girls and lots & lots of toys. A new kind of quiet for us~ but we wouldn’t have it any other way.
