The Final Weekend

The weekend before Christmas always seems to be the busiest and the most fun. For me, the weekend officially started Thursday night with a party.This is the only picture of I have in my new sequins jacket. Clearly, after a few cocktails I think I am a much better dancer than I really am!!

Friday night, we took the 2 older kids downtown to hear the St. Louis Symphony Orchestra play Christmas carols. My kids (and Dan and I) had a great time. The music was beautiful and the final segment was a sing along which had my kids singing their hearts out!
Saturday, bright and early, we headed downtown again for Breakfast with Santa.we smiled and laughed...
we had our faces painted...
we decorated gingerbread homes....
and we ate.
The guest of honor arrived......
Here was the best we could do!!

Saturday night we celebrated Christmas with some friends that we do not see enough. I do love that about Christmas, it is an opportunity to see old friends. My weekend ended with our annual girls dinner, it was the perfect end to a perfect weekend. I was having too much fun to take any pictures, and now I am mad, this happens every year!!!


  1. Sounds like a great weekend. You do have a lot of fun, don't you? So cool!

    Did you hear "Fabio" won Survivor? He's a St. Louis boy as well (That what I did last night! LOL. Watched the finale!). I love that show and secretly want to be a castaway (okay, not so secret anymore).

    Happy Monday!

  2. love all your pictures! esp the first and the last one. :)

  3. Love the pics Jill! You and your hubby are too beautiful (and your kids too). That sequin jacket is so cute. You could wear it with jeans and a t-shirt to totally dress it down for a fun night out this winter. :-)

  4. I love that sequin jacket! You and your husband are so cute together!

  5. The jacket? I want one now, badly! You rocked it! BTW? I adore your pretty hair.

  6. Girl you totally rocked that sequin jacket! making me sad I didn't get one! I am always the one that gets too drunk and forgets to take pictures and I hate it the next day!

  7. You were working that jacket!!! I love it! And that picture of you and your husband is gorgeous, you're a beautiful couple :-)
