Our weekend + Sales and Gift Ideas

Well I’ve been a little frantic getting ready for Christmas, family parties and travel. There’s hardly a slow day around here lately between holiday activities, sports and family visits. All wonderful things, but can make for one busy mama. I have to share these wonderful pics from our visit to the Nutcracker for kids. A friend got tickets through her child’s school for this shortened performance just for an audience full of kiddos. Ella and I loved it!

The whole first 30 minutes she was pointing and shouting “Wook mama…wook mama” (wook=look) if you don’t speak toddler! The Fox Theatre is one of my favorite spots in Atlanta, especially for music or ballet! This is Ella checking out one of their holiday trees.
