1, 2, 3

Top: Anthro; Skirt: F21; Hat: Gap

1. Fa la la la la laaaa laaa... womp womp. We decided that Saturday was the day that we were going to finally deck our halls. We ran some errands early in the day, picked up our Elf on the Shelf and went home. Then Jax and I waited excitedly as McKay brought in our Christmas boxes. Finally, the tree was in and the boxes sat, unopened on the floor. I always love opening decoration boxes- because I always find something I love that I forgot I had. That did not happen this year. Thanks to Pinterest, I am no longer satisfied with my decor. And thanks to Pinterest, McKay was so annoyed because I insisted we go to Target at 10:00pm to find "silver balls." So we drove to Target, and then to Fred Meyer, and then to WalMart, and then to the other Target, and I finally got some silver balls- but they got drowned in all my other stuff, so you can't even tell that it is supposed to look "wintery" not woodland-y. 

2. I am embarking on some DIY-ing tomorrow (or Wednesday). I am going to glitter some pinecones! And then I am going to drive around and hunt for some perfect branches to string together and drape around my front door. I saw some perfect ones in the Fred Meyer parking lot and so I might drive there in the middle of the night and chop some trees. (Just kidding, Mr. Meyer)

3. At church on Sunday I was helping in the nursery, and I was in charge of singing time (which was a catastrophe because I had absolutely no control) and a little girl pushed Jax! She seriously just pushed him- all the way on his back. I used to think she was cute, but now I don't. And he just laid there and looked at me. So I gasped and picked him up and cuddled him. And I am just wondering- how do moms ever let their kids go, alone, to nursery or preschool or anywhere without them? I can't. 

4. Tonight I was bored, and I don't think I have talked about this on here, but I love those Wonka jokes. McKay and I call them "sarcastic Wonkas" and we always try to make up funny ones, but we are just not witty enough. Anyways- today at lunch, McKay challenged me to make one that went "viral." And then we just laughed cause that would never happen and McKay forgot about it. 
But then tonight I got bored.
So I typed "blank willy wonka" into google and then I found a perfect photo of McKay. And I got in Photoshop and made one of him- being Wonka. Then I got on a roll. So I made some some sarcastic wonkas for some family members. Then I posted them on their FB walls. I seriously have no life.

These are inside jokes, but I'll explain. 

This one is to McKay. He hated cats and said we could never have one. Then we got one and he named it Benjals. Then it peed on our carpet three times, so I gave it away. He cried.

This one is to my brother. He takes pics of himself on Snapchat and sends them to girls. What they don't know, is that he is sometimes just in his room, in his underwear, with his cat.

All I will say, is that I no longer feel guilty watching raunchy movies in my grandparent's presence.
And grandparents should hide their personal items before grandchildren visit.
And my grandma and grandpa are disgusting. 

It's really late and these are really creepy. In the morning, I will probably get on here and be like onmygoshhh!!!! and delete them. But....if you are on this blog between the hours of 1 and 8am
