Our week {Simple things}

Our week has been simple, and peaceful. Around this time of the year everything seems so hectic and rushed. I vowed that we would not fall into the hustle and bustle of the holiday season.  This week we enjoyed a few simple things-that bring me so much joy.

We made a peppermint ice cream cake-perfect for this time of year. I've been burning my sweet sugar cookie candle. I'm sure my husband is tired of asking me if I'm baking when he enters our home. I swear this candle smells amazing. I've enjoyed mornings spent with our little one. We've been reading through a collection of illustrated poems for children. She enjoys the illustrations, just as much as I do.

We spend our time working on activities; activities that involve learning colors, shapes, and counting. I try to make it as fun as possible. While in the kitchen, our daughter enjoys washing her play plates, and cups. Splashing, and making bubbles-it's always such a fun time.

I'm really enjoying the evening when our Christmas lights are turned on, and we sit around and our daughter sings for us. It's always a wonderful show. She sings, dances, and makes sure daddy and I are watching the entire show. -Moments like this I'll cherish for as long as I live.

It has been a wonderful week, and I hope the same for all of you.

**Welcome everyone..I'm so happy to have you all on this wonderful journey. Thank you for being such wonderful blog friends**
