last supper and some funnies

it's always very hard to say good-bye to my sister after her visit.  we tried to make it light hearted this time, no tears.  i guess we were too chill because she made her flight with 10 minutes to spare!  

 i miss so much what we did together like, burning my arm with her new curling wand,
 looking like we were back in junior high when we used to wear tight rollers to bed with wet hair, and wake up to an afro,

 blog stalking and sitting on our butts talking about how we are going to try out the latest trends and have all these cute outfit posts.

caleb loves to help out in the kitchen whenever he can.  so, recently my talented mister, has been building up a storm of cute things for caleb to use, including this nice step stool.  it's perfect for caleb to use when he wants to help make us coffee or whatever he decides to do in the kitchen.

new year

 it seems that it has become our tradition to fondue every new years
this was the spread for this year
steak, shrooms, broccoli, and chicken boobs
 b made his magical potion to cook it all in
after a few rounds of using the sticks and waiting for everything to cook, we got smart and just
dumped all the meat in, and let it cook
we also had 2 dipping sauces that b whipped up
 caleb was into the party scene for about 5 minutes 
so we had to take advantage while we could
 oh the horns, give a kid a horn and he could amuse himself all day
 here's a couple blooper scenes, ( don't be mad sis)
yea, don't know what to say about this one, other than i look insane

the best present of all

caleb came down with a fever on christmas day of 103, he was so sad, but snuggling with ga ga was healing
the best present from ga ga was this inflatable dino we coined zilla
just us girls in front of the town tree
ga ga waking up with her morning coffee while i make her pose
the polish tradition of breaking oplatki and giving blessings to those around us is  a huge tradition that caleb got to actually partake in this year.  this polish tradition is part of the whole christmas eve dinner extravaganza, wigilia.
the boy gets all these great gifts, but the i pad is all he wants to play with
stained hands after painting his ornament for the tree this year

holiday cheer

i'm a bit slow on organizing and editing all the photos from the holidays.  but, i have a few ready of some places we went to visit.  we drove to a local town for a beautiful light show on the property of this hotel, and then we went inside for a magical snow village.

each year, we love to drive around and look at christmas lights, and have decided to start a new tradition with our friends.  each winter we will bundle up the kiddos in their jammies, bring some hot chocolate with us, and head out to this cute little place and let the kids explore the magic of christmas.

sister style

when my sister and i get together, we shop a lot.  we spent a lot of time at jcpenny, tjmaxx, ulta, etc...we scoured the blogs to find fashion inspirations and new make up tutorials and then went out and put our own spin on what we saw.  we had so many great outfits that we wore, but failed to snap photos of. 

here is one using some new finds at the store and a self made cargo vest.  it was my first adventure in recreating something and i am quite pleased with how it turned out.  it was rather simple really, all i did was cut the sleeves off the jacket and voila!
