Our Second Annual North Pole Party.
It took a little work. And yesterday, I snapped at Brett, had an attitude talk with Lainey after school, cleaned up messes and threw dirty dishes in places they shouldn’t go fifteen minutes before the party.
But then the kids came and the rest was, truly, magic.
Last night’s memories, preserved:
Songs: Sufjan Stevens Lo, How Arose ‘Er Blooming, Judy Garland Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas, Chris Botti The First Noel
Thank you to our neighbor and dear friend, Nana Kate, who helped so much with the magic and mothering; and to my friend, Nici, for her help in getting Santa to call in.
My friends at Darlybird–and I can truly say friends, not just sponsors–are back with sweet, meaningful gifts for your family this holday.
Discovering Darlybird is discovering a little secret–a site full of artsy treasures, whimsical gifts, home goods full of character–and all at such fair prices.
And this folksy wood mobile, hand carved by native craftsmen. It hangs over Nella’s high chair.
And finally, a colorful new line of wood art prints:

My girl is begging to go jump in puddles. Happy weekending.
