Our mom wanted to have a fun activity with all the grand kids, so everyone came over for a Grammie's Night Out! They decorated the cutest little gingerbread trains // house you ever did see. It was so much fun seeing their creative little brains at work and watching them get so excited about things they made!
Have we mentioned enough times how much we love being home with our family?
Thanks for the pics, Paige!

We got home on Thursday and have been loving every minute since! Being in a home filled with warmth, family, and lots of Christmas decorations has been the best thing that has ever happened to us. We missed our family so much and love spending time with them. It's so nice to sit around and not have to worry about anything. Actually, that's a lie. We worry about Vampire Diaries.... We just started season 4 and are TRIP-PIN! (Whoever wrote the shiz has some serious skills) Your worries switch from character to character literally every 5 seconds. First it's Elena, then Stefan, then Damon, then Tyler and Caroline, then Jeremy, then MATT, then Bonnie - actually not Bonnie - she bugs. We've never been so seriously and emotionally invested in a TV series before but then again, it's about Vampires and we all know how much we like those mystical creatures. :)
Christmas is in full swing around these parts and the thousands of decorations our mother has really brings the Christmas spirit. This year, we have an Elf on the Shelf - he's Santa's helper and moves from place to place everyday, watching the littles to make sure they're staying on the nice list. My mom says it's only for the grandkids, but we get just as excited looking for his new hiding place everyday as they do! We're still trying to figure out what to name him, though.... So far Booger and Eyeball are in the lead. Those are cute Elf names, right? Haha our nephews seem to think so!

We were so exhausted after this week was over, we spent the whole weekend inside, wrapped up in blankets with a big bowl of popcorn watching movies and TV.... and sleeping a lot. :) (Our sleeping-clocks may or may not be completely confused)
This weekend has been so chill, and it's been so good for us. Our poor brains have been spending hours at SI's, studying in the library, extra studying at home, etc. All we know is that we're going to push through these next few days, and we'll be home for the holidays before we know it! :)
5 more days to be exact!

The moment we saw this picture on Kelly Ann's blog we immediately thought of the song The Fear by Ben Howard. (If you haven't listened to him yet, you should. He is most definitely in our top 5) As we were scrolling through the post.. BAM! She had a playlist with the song on it! Listen to it here.
We're all afraid of something, right? But that's kind of what makes life eventful - a way to keep us on our toes. Here are a few little things that make us scream & squirrel:
