Love + Parties.

This weekend I fell in love a little more with TH. It was one of the busiest weekends of life, that basically included 3 parties (what's not to love, really?) and getting ready for Christmas.
White Elephant exchange with the Capitol Hill friends on Friday at Matt and Christina's beautiful home (we have been thinking about that grey couch all weekend!). Saturday was our ward christmas party that we were in charge of throwing, and then Sunday was Cristy's first (annual?) sing-a-long christmas dinner with the gang.

We really loved every bit of this weekend, and seeing all the friends we love. My favorite part of the weekend was when Eli, the 4-year old wunderkind in the ward, begged to sing jingle bells in front of the ward at the christmas party. If you ask me, he totally made the party! Nothing says Merry Christmas like a 4 year standing at the pulpit, shouting the one-note jingle bells into the microphone, complete with fist-pumping and "Hey"!

Second favorite part of the weekend was when TH was explaining how the weight of molecules is owed to their elemental weight, and then ripped open his snap-button shirt to reveal a tshirt with the periodic table. Super-scientist to the rescue!

But TH really did save me from going crazy this weekend. And so I worked on his Christmas stocking, knitting him a little scottie dog for his stocking. Pictures soon, I promise.

What did you do this weekend?
