Amanda’s Weekly Update

The end of a Christmas-y week! We put up our tree and have been watching Christmas movies (Thank you Disney+). We took the kids to the Lewis Ginter Botanical Gardens in Richmond this week. The kids flipped. We walked under the lights, they played in the lit structures, we sipped hot chocolate (coffee in my case) as we strolled around and marveled at everything. When we got home we watched Home Alone and sipped more hot chocolate/coffee. It was one of those magical nights that carries the joy of Christmas through all of us. Hope your week has some holiday joy and magic! Can’t wait to share some more of our Christmas/holiday reads with you all! <3

Lillian’s Weekly Update

Happy Sunday y’all! This week was a busy one for us. Little man is in the choir at school and with the holidays now in full swing so are the performances. We welcomed Santa to the local mall, attended our town’s reverse caroling/tree lighting ceremony, and tonight we will be singing at the live nativity. Lots of fun and lots of Christmas! I finally got our decorations up this week as well despite the universe conspiring against me 😂 First a fall down our stairs while carrying the decorations from the attic, then the lights on the smallest tree not working and finally the lights on our main tree not working….oh well. I’m sore and bruised but our trees are pretty. We’ve watched Christmas movies and listened to Christmas music all weekend (well except during the SEC championship game, we had to break for that). Hope you are enjoying this holiday season. And as Amanda already said, look for more of our holiday reading recommendations this week 🎄
