Happy Birthday Dad!

I must take a few sentences on his special day to share with you what makes my Dad so special to me. He is my advisor, my strong shoulder, my teacher, my encourager and my friend. I don't know what I would do without him. I love you very much. Enjoy your day!

Sweater me not.

I just had to share this. It has been really chilly here in Birmingham the last few weeks so Coco pulled Lucy's sweater out to keep her warm. She usually does really well and loves to snuggle up in it. After a few hours it gets a little old so she wiggles her way out. This picture was snapped mid-wiggle. Coco and I were laughing so hard at her walking around the house "stripping" her sweater. Not two minutes after this was taken the sweater lay in the middle of the kitchen floor. Lucy's sweater "strip" was successful!

How can you not love this face?

A little Christmas Cheer

Merry Christmas everyone! While I have been VERY behind getting into the Christmas spirit, I did manage to get my tree up (thank you Coco!) a little over a week ago. I am almost done shopping and I even wrapped some presents this week (see - they are under the tree)! My plan is to be a baking fool this weekend...I do love to bake this time of year. Mostly because I like to eat, but ya'll already knew that. :)

I still have a few more presents to buy...I find I leave the hardest for last, why is that? Has anyone found such a fabulous gift they must share with the rest of us? I am definitely open for some inspiration!

Catching Up...again

Wow. I am a terrible blogger. I feel like I should reintroduce myself. In case you forgot who I am, check out this post. I am remiss. I apologize. I thought I would be better than this. This season has caught up with me. Oh I hope to keep my promises.

So a lot has occurred in the life of Kiki and Coco since mid-November (the last time I really blogged). I will try to keep this brief (ha!) and give you a rundown...

MC and I took a road trip to Florida for a MonogramChick Trunk Show at my parent's house. So much fun to be home even if it meant that getting there would take 8 or more hours. Long story. And long ride. But nice to spend it with MC. Let's just say our little trip involved lots of DC and these...

Is anyone else addicted to these this time of year? Here are a few pics from our trip...a few of all of MC's merchandise spread all over the house and some from a fun family dinner (thanks dad!). We had a great time, way too short but so wonderful to be together.

Mom and MC...aren't they beautiful?

Dad and me

Thanksgiving with the Marshalls! Coco and I spent Thanksgiving with his family in Macon and it was definitely not without entertainment! We had a great time visiting. Coco's mom, Jo, worked so hard to prepare a scrumptious meal. We arrived Wednesday night and Thursday morning I helped with some last minute food prep. One of those items was the turkey. Let me be clear and state that neither Jo or I had ever cooked a turkey. This became apparent when Coco's Aunt Molly discovered upon removal from the oven that the turkey had been cooked upside down! It literally fell apart in the pan, it was hilarious! It was actually really tasty since all of the yummy white meat cooked on the bottom with all of the juices. Who knew??? We spent nearly an hour texting pictures to everyone we know, this is one infamous turkey!

Me and Jo...I love this picture.

Pulled turkey for Thanksgiving anyone? Anyone have any crazy Thanksgiving stories?

Happy Birthday MC!

Okay, I know I have been a terrible blogger lately - its been more than two weeks! Life is crazy around here. I vow to do better. What better way to start back than to wish my beautiful sister a happy birthday today? I don't know what I would do without her. I wish her a day full of pampered moments and lots of DC and Christmas nougat. :)

Happy Birthday to MC, my very best friend and my fabulous sister!
I can't wait to see you tomorrow to celebrate! Oh, and I apologize for the sub par pic...I am ill-equipped today. And for my blogger buddies, December is busy month for us - lots of birthdays and holiday celebrations so stay tuned! I will even have that giveaway I have been teasing ya'll about!
