Happy weekend + happy holidays! This is one of the few weekends in maybe a two month span that we’ve got, like, one plan on the calendar and an otherwise open scheduling book. Very much looking forward to taking it easy, cleaning up, and truly ~enjoying~ some Christmas fun as a family. I’ve got a feeling sugar Christmas cookies will be happening, and maybe a Christmas movie or two…bless up. 🙂
