How we're trying to get two kiddos thru Daddy's graduation ceremony! It's echo-y and really hard to understand the speakers. But we got to see Paul process, and at the end he'll be graduated!! via Instagram

Last night after exercise class, I completely rearranged our living room. I have one more tweak in mind that I think will really make things optimal for the installation of our tree Sunday evening! via Instagram

My work of the day expanded beyond this, but culminated in organizing the kids' living room toys, consolidating, culling, & transferring them to this corner. By next Sunday I hope to have the entire room much more sparse: ready to be fully decked out for Christmas, complete with tree coming Sunday! πŸŽ„ via Instagram

This is ALL PJ: the animals are the audience; she set up a music stand for herself; she is the director, and I am instructed to stand at the fireplace, which is the stage. "You can sit right now, but when I come back you BETTER be STANDING!" #MightyPJ then led me in several rounds of "Deck the Halls" πŸ˜‚πŸ˜ via Instagram

I don't care for Babybel, and my beloved @traderjoes Brie Bites are not easily available to me (come to the Harrisburg area PLEEEEASE?) so when I spotted these @belgioiosocheese snack bites at the grocery store, I had to try them! A little better than Babybel, but still can't hold a candle to my true love Brie Bites. via Instagram

The kids and I made granola bars this evening! We mixed up dates, cashews, pecans, unsweetened coconut flakes, oats, and @bobsredmill seven grain; tossed that with a mix of coconut oil, egg whites, and honey; pressed it together and baked it. It's a little too crumbly, so I'll add another egg white to the next batch. via Instagram
