Mommy and Me Monday | The Christmas Edition (#97)


It’s time again for Mommy and Me Monday. Pop out from behind that camera and capture yourself in action with your kids.  Check out the inaugural Mommy and Me Monday for more information.

Merry Christmas!  I hope you all had a fabulous weekend with family and friends and enjoyed every minute of it.

Pretty sure I overdid it this weekend (muffler replacement, painted baby girls’ room, cleaning, cooking, making homemade cinnamon rolls, brunch with friends and Christmas Eve service).  I had BH contractions that actually hurt and ended up spending Saturday night and most of Sunday in the recliner with my feet up and water near by.  Hoping the resting for two days gives my body a break and reminds baby girl to stay put for a couple more weeks (less than 7).

I made sure to scoop my girls up and get a picture with them (as was the typical for most of the day, I took pictures of everybody else).  One is very excited to have her princess crown and the other is thrilled about her “makeup” (aka piggy paint nail polish).

I sit her in the recliner using my new laptop lap desk (instead of a pillow) and am finding it pretty comfy.

Did you have a wonderful Christmas?  Did Santa bring you everything you hoped for?  How about your kids?

Mommy and Me Monday at Really, Are You Serious?

**There really is only one requirement here, a picture of you and your baby or babies; your children, your “baby” (ie significant other) or even your fur babies.  If your picture doesn’t feature you (meaning you must be in the picture), I will have to delete your link.  It’s not fair to the others that follow the rules.**

  2. Merry Christmas!! I love love love your hair!!! The girls are super adorable as usual and I can’t wait for baby girl #3!!!

    Love, Mere

    1. Okay, two comments about the hair? Y’all are either being super nice…or just can’t think of anything else! In honestly, I recently got it cut, and I’m going to get it fixed next week! It’s uneven in the back and the longest layer is too long!

      They have been pretty adorable, lately! I can’t wait to see how they are with another little girl in the house!

  3. Yes, I hope more people will start participating again. I think it’s fun. Happy Holidays.

    1. It was a lot of fun to hop around, wasn’t it? Hopefully, there will be more participation in the new year!

      Happy New Year.

  4. Very easy to overdue it this time of year. I hope you are able to sit back and relax now. Very sweet picture of you and your adorable ladies! 🙂

    1. Yes, there was a lot of sitting back and relaxing and this week was much better!

  5. It may be 9:20 pm, but I got my Mommy & Me up! I didn’t want to miss it!

    Okay, momma! Take it easy! Like you said, baby needs to bake a little longer! I feel the same way about the weekend, I think I got myself in a handful of pictures, but it was mostly me taking pictures of everyone else. I’m just glad to have it all on camera to remember years from now!

    1. Glad you were able to link up! And, really it’s up until like Sunday night of the next you have a couple extra days.

      Yes, she definitely needs some more baking time, but mommy is really getting to that point (already…that’s bad, right)?

    1. It was nice..very low-key and relaxing.

      Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you guys, too!
