Mia's Big Week

Oh my goodness! I am worn out and it is only December 11. Our week has been much like our weekend and by looking at our calendar, I don't see an end in sight. Nolan and I did fit in a bit of a date night this week, though, when we went and saw the Radio City Christmas Show with the Rockettes. We used to go see this every year at the Fox Theatre in Detroit, but we both think it has gotten even better.

Too bad I already posted my "eyes" assignment over at the Mamarazzi blog on 12/6, because I really like how Mia's eyes glow in this photo. I think it's from the excitement of getting ready to go to a play date with her friends.

Thanks Stacy for hosting play group in your lovely home!
I just adore these girls and their Mamas.

And this week, we had Mia's first big stage debut. She was so excited when she heard she was going to be on stage. Her famous reply is, "Oh, my goodness gracious!" I really need to video tape her saying that. I know I'm biased, but it's the cutest thing ever. :)

Tomorrow is Ladies Night Out and I am very much looking forward to it. I have loved every activity we've been doing, but I just need a night off from rush, rush, rush. I hope to get a chance to catch up with everyone this weekend!

I'm exhausted just watching all that y'all did. Love the photos (and the Mia outfits!). And I am intensely jealous of your very large playgroup.

Michelle,

That could possibly be the CUTEST Christmas dress I've seen. And of course, the cutie wearing the dress makes it all the more adorable.

Enjoy your ladies night out! I had one last night. It is the perfect prescription to fight holiday stress.

Cheers,
Tisha
