Monday Funday!

Happy Monday everyone! I hope you all had a great weekend!

I'm off work today! I work 9 hour days during the week so that I can have a day off every other week. My day off is every other Monday, which happens to be today! Yay! I love this schedule. Having a day off is great for getting things done that I don't often have time for during the busy weekend. 

Today, Jackson and I are going over to my sister's house to make these cute ornaments that I found on Pinterest. We are making them as gifts to give to our boys' grandparents. :-) I hope they are as easy as they look and turn out cute. I'll post about how it goes later this week. 

We also got our Christmas Tree over the weekend. :-) I know we're a little late, as it seems most people have had their trees up for a couple weeks now. Oh well, better late than never. ☺ I loved that Jackson got to go with us this year to pick out our annual Smith Family Noble Fir. Its a tradition of ours that we started the year we got married. We go to the same little family owned Christmas Tree Farm right down the road from us and pick out a Noble Fir. They smell sooooo good! ☺ I'll have a more detailed post on our Christmas tree and decorations later this week as well.

These are our past trees.

And lastly, I wanted to share some photos I took for my Brother-in-Law and Sister-in-Law last weekend. ☺


I love my nephews "kissy face" in this photo. Too funny!



My very handsome and "way too old" nephew Brandon. I feel way too young to have an almost 16 year old nephew.

My beautiful niece Alexis. She's growing up to be such a kind and caring young lady.

My very pretty and "getting way too old" niece Kyleigh.

My sweet and funny nephew Larry IV.

My sweet niece Sophia. I could have taken pictures of her all day.

I would love to have a flex schedule at work. But unfortunately, the job I do doesn't allow for it. Womp... Womp.... Enjoy your day with your blue eyed boy, and I can't wait to see what the ornaments look like finished!
