Feeling the Christmas Spirit

We are so excited about Christmas this year! Nolan is fascinated with everything and watching his excitement brings us such joy! I've captured a few moments thus far and can't wait to share hundreds more!
 I enjoyed this year's Junior League Holiday Fair and couldn't help but buy some goodies for everyone. But surprisingly the item Nolan found to be the most fun was the blingin' head bands I bought for myself! Guess he thought there is nothing that he can't pull off and he is right LOL!  

In my holiday gear watching cartoons!

Phase One: Add garland and lights COMPLETED 

 Super cuteness!!

Feeling Crafty... LOVED decorating with all the sweets (Nolan not so interested)
 Picking out the perfect Tree!

Thanks Uncle Josh for helping us get the tree and for helping keep up with a little boy whose sole interest that night was running through all the trees!

One Happy Family!!!

Playing Dress Up in Japan

We are currently experiencing our first family trip to Japan and it has already been amazing! There will be many posts and pictures to come but yesterday was a very special day for me and my mother-in-law Mayumi. She took us to her Aunt`s traditional Japanese style home to give me a day of beauty and dress up! She got to see me in a traditional white wedding Kimono, royal kimono (which had only 5 layers opposed to the usual 12!!) and a fun beautiful cherry blossom Kimono. I had the opportunity to be prepped for one hour with hair (a traditional Japanese wig) and make-up - this usually takes 3 hours so I was thankful for the quicker version. Now these are Kimono`s that I will likely never experience again - Brides in Japan can borrow these for their wedding and get the hair and make-up for around $10K! Here are a few pics of the experience - it was amazing and I will remember that moment with Mayumi forever! (Special thanks to our family (the O`Haras) for doing this and providing us with an amazing dinner that followed!)
