Pink, Gingham, and Christmas Eve

I'm really enjoying getting to be home with Grant. Some recent conversations have me rolling.

Me: "Grant, should we get Grandma another Christmas present?"
Grant: "How about a cape and mask?"
Me: Dying.

Me: "When you were a baby you were in my tummy."
Grant: "when Gracie was a baby was she in Daddy's tummy?"
Gracie is our beagle....

I've got to do a better job of keeping track of this stuff.

Now to my outfit: I picked up this sweater and shirt last week when J.Crew factory was running a 50% off sale. How could I not go, right? I love this bright pink color, and this gingham is perfection! Last year I picked up a different gingham shirt at Plato's closet, but I felt it was a little big every time I wore it and it had a texture I just wasn't crazy about, so back to Plato's it will go. This outfit is perfect for spending Christmas Eve with the family.  We always go out to my parent's house for a dinner of appetizers.  Growing up I always begged to open a present early on Christmas Eve, you think as an adult I'd be over that, but I'm totally not. :)
