It’s been awhile since I’ve done one of these oh Hey Friday posts. I thought it would be fun to put together one so that I could share what my family and I have been up to recently. The end of the year is always such a busy time but that is a good thing.
I like the excitement of the holidays and getting ready for the new year. So check out what’s been going on lately and what I’ve got planned coming up. These posts are just five things going on in my life with pictures if I have them. A way of you getting to know me a bit better and for me to share what’s going on.
I’m so excited that I’m getting a new phone. My cell has gone crazy the last month or so. I’ve wanted a new phone for awhile and since mine has been crashing and acting up I’ve really wanted one badly.
So for Christmas my husband and I upgraded our phones as part of our gift to each other. They should be here in the next week and I’m so excited to have a working phone for one thing and a better phone.
I really enjoyed having my sister and her family out here in California for two weeks. We don’t get to see them very often maybe once or twice a year since they live and work on the east coast and can’t visit often. Bella loves being with her cousins.
They got to go to Knott’s Berry Farm with my sisters and parents. ( I didn’t want to go since I was sick)
My mom made them all hats as an early Christmas present
Though in a few months Bella will have a cousin nearby. My youngest sister is having her first, a little boy named Noah in March or beginning of April.
We are all so excited for a new baby in the family. With our sister in town we had an early baby shower so she could be a part of it. Normally showers aren’t till the end of the pregnancy but I’m sure Noah will be celebrated up to his delivery and beyond.
Here is my whole family together at the baby shower.
I’m so excited for Christmas. We’ve decorated although outdoor lights still need to be put up. I’ve ordered Christmas cards and have bought a few presents already bought. Still plenty to do but I feel good about what’s been done so far. I love this time of the year.
We decorated the tree, though we didn’t add ornaments to the bottom third because we weren’t sure if the puppy would try to get them. For it being his first Christmas he’s been so good with the tree and decorations.
The cat has always loved the Christmas tree he doesn’t bother is at all, just likes to lay underneath it and hide behind presents.
I’m almost done with my 2015 reading goal. I’ve been trying to hit my 52 book goal this year. Some weeks I got behind and then I had to read a lot to catch up.
I don’t hit goals often enough so I’m so happy this one will be accomplished. It also got me to read more this year and I’ve read a lot of great books. I will share the books I read when I’m all done in January.
