Happy Holidays to you all from these messy-haired little rosebuds!
The majority of our holiday was spent at my parent’s house, but before we headed to the festivities, I decided to try my luck at a quick photo shoot. (Not the best idea.) Everly was in a mood and flat out refused to sit next to her sister… While Chloe flipped the eff out at my attempt to cover her crazy mop of hair with a headband. Ah well, I tried… Evie managed to sit still long enough to get a few shots and almost looked mildly happy. Until… …Chloe joined her. (The NERVE!) Ev was NOT pleased. Nope. Not pleased at all. […]
…It’s gonna be a looong day. Merry Christmas!
I hope they’re not permanently traumatized… (Sorry girls. We’ll pay for your therapy sessions.) This is definitely the last year we’re gonna fork over $30+ to see a mall santa. I mean, c’mon… How can they charge so much without even giving us a real, legit beard? Pfft. Though in this guy’s defense, he was pretty friendly. Super creepy looking, but friendly nonetheless. Ho. Ho. Ho.
I’m way behind in all things “Christmas” this year (I blame the late Thanksgiving — daaamn you!), so it only makes sense that I’m late with my holiday giveaway too. Eh, what can ya do. Ooh, I rhymed. So yeah… It’s coming. After I figure out the prizes. And the contest duration. And the amount of contests. And the end dates. You know, just the minor details. 😉 Stay tuned!
I know, I know… It’s not even Halloween yet and here I am posting about Christmas ornaments. Perhaps I’m a wee bit ahead of the game, but when Dixie Midwest contacted me about reviewing one of their personalized ornaments, I just couldn’t say no. What can I say… I’m a sucker for things with my babies faces on ’em. 😉
Total indifference. That’s how I’d sum up the girls’ meeting with the Easter Bunny on Sunday. Pure “yep, just sittin’ here on a giant rabbit, no big deal…” indifference. I guess I shouldn’t be surprised, given how “thrilled” they were to meet Santa. Thankfully, unlike Santa, there was no ridiculous fee to visit this toothy-grinned, oversized rodent bunny wabbit. The fellow parents were well-behaved, despite it being a zillion degrees in the “bunny room”. The line was long(ish), but we were in and out in 30 minutes or so. Yeah, one of the girls may or may not have vomited […]
So, it’s Valentine’s Day. Let’s pretend that I got all dressed up and went out for a fancypants dinner with my husband. Let’s pretend he brought me a dozen roses and a box of expensive vegan chocolates. (They were oh-so-yummy.) And since we’re all about bullshitting pretending, let’s pretend these are NOT Christmas dresses and that they wore them for more than 10 minutes.
New Year’s Eve was rather uneventful in the Rose house this year. To be honest, we’ve never been much for parties, being the antisocial/awkward dweebs that we are. So in typical dweeb style, we invited my parents over for a few hours. We hung out with the girls, played a few games, ate some snacks… Oh, and Everly learned to fly.
Another year, another Christmas come and gone. *sniff* I swear, the older I get, the shorter the holiday season feels. When I was little, the anticipation of the big day was excruciating. The days seemed to drag on and on, highlighted only by the beloved prime time Christmas cartoons (nothing says “holiday spirit” better than a flamboyant little elf who just wants to be a goddamn dentist!). These days, November and December just swoosh by faster than you can say “FRA-GEE-LAY”. I was hoping this year would be different, now that I have kids and all. But nope — I […]
On Friday afternoon, I paid $33 to plop my dear babies into the waiting arms of a strange old fat guy. Yep, the girls had their first visit with Santa. We had originally planned to go to a cute little country store that our family has gone to for years, because they have the BEST Santa around. Real beard, super patient, willing to spend up to 10(!) minutes with each kid… And his services are FREE of charge! Sounds freakin’ great, right? Eh… not so much… Sadly, I had been reading the store’s Facebook page for the last few weeks […]
I had no intentions of making Thanksgiving cards (seriously, who does that?), but I stumbled upon a special offer for 10 free photo cards — with free shipping to boot. How could I not take advantage? I love free stuff! The only catch was that the offer was only good that day, so we had to kinda scramble to create a “Thanksgiving-y” photo of the girls. Sadly, our little tofurkys weren’t feeling very photogenic, so we had to make due. But so what if they’re not smiling? Smiling’s overrated. And so what if they look like little boys? Little boys […]
