Well this weekend was full of Ho Ho Ho’s, runny noses, and snow! Why can’t there ever be a December without the sneezes sniffles and snots? ha haweekends with the ostrowskis We have been running our Young Living diffuser with Thieves and R.C. to help support little Harlo’s nose and boost her immune system! If you want some of these oils head over here! I am hoping Sutton doesn’t get it but after being sneezed on multiple times a day there is only a small window of hope!;) I also have been putting the thieves on Harlo’s  feet with socks, some breathe easy rub from Honest Company and having her take elderberry syrup!! Annnnd following her around with tissues ha ha ha yep I am that mom 😉bench hangs

So our weekend was fast and chaotic pretty much like most weekends! Saturday we went to the mall to see what I say is the ‘REAL’ Santa because it is the same place I went to see Santa as a kid!! I love the tradition. This year Harlo had no tears just smiles for good ole St. Nick and told him what she wanted for Christmas! (a doll carrier that she can wear) We are at that stage where she wants to mimic everything I do! I love it and never want it to change 🙂 Sutton also did a great job she wasn’t phased one bit! Sunday it snowed ALLLLLLLLLLLL day and we played in for a little bit! Embrace what you do not like!

Our Girls Weekend

Happy Thanksgiving Week Loves!weekend with the ostrowskis

It was a girl’s weekend because Nick went hunting! Thankfully he hunts close to home so he came home for a few hours and went back out. He had no luck this time around hopefully next weekend! He is going to try Pine essential oil because deer are supposed to be attracted to that scent. We will see if it is a success and let you know! Our girl’s weekend consisted of watching Hallmark Christmas movies, Barney Christmas and lots of snuggles and cuddles! We also grocery shopped for Thanksgiving this week! I am hosting this year and my family all brings a few traditional dishes to pass 🙂 This will be Sutton and Penny my sister’s little girl’s FIRST Thanksgiving! So excited to share the firsts with my sister! We always dreamed to have kids together when we were little! It is incredible to have that dream turn reality!!sutton smiling Harlo reading sutton tummy time twinning kisses baby snuggles tea partytummy time
