Baby, it’s cold outside!

Winter has finally arrived in Texas, making me want to stay home in my pajamas all day, drink hot chocolate, and play with my favorite two-year-old!  This week Elliott and I took a few days to relax at home and simply just be together.

We built an awesome fort in the playroom.  Well, actually it was more of a tunnel, but it was still awesome.

Elliott dubbed it the “triangle tunnel”.  See?

When we were done with the tunnel we pulled out the sofa bed and had a pillow fight!  Elliott loves this game…he laughs hysterically when he’s hit with a pillow!  Silly boy.

We expended a lot of energy pillow-fighting so it was time for a healthy snack!  Popcorn…

…and egg nog!

We ate our snack and sipped our egg nog while we watched Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer on the pull-out sofa bed.

The movie inspired us to make our very own Rudolph!

We both took a nap in the afternoon…we were still in our pj’s! Then it was on to more playing!  Why can’t every day be this much fun?



  1. You are such a fabulous mommy! I love that you captured this perfectly cozy, fun day for us and for your own memories.

    I’ve considered introducing B to forts, but in my laziness I am concerned our living room would never be un-forted without a battle. I should be more fun…
