@allieweeksmurray Christmas is already expensive. Trying to add outdoor lights and decor just never made it to a priority for us, especially in our big struggle years. This year, we still couldn’t prioritize full house lights but I decided I’d get them something small and it turns out, that’s all they needed. I love these kids and their thankful hearts so much!!!!! #thankfulkids #momlifeisthebest #thankfulhearts ♬ Bundle of Joy - Jartisto
If your birthday is today, you share a birthday with actress Christina Applegate (51), lawyer John F. Kennedy Jr. (would’ve been 62), competitive eater Joey Chestnut (39), and MLB Hall of Famer Joe DiMaggio (would’ve been 108).
Have a great day and weekend everyone! (and psst… it’s one month until Christmas).
