Happy Monday! We had a great weekend, making more memories!! I am fighting a stupid cold that I am pretty much ignoring because I don't want it to get me down. We had to miss church and the Christmas program last night because of it, but we still made up for it with other things.
Our Christmas season officially kicked off with our first Christmas parties!
Friday night was Claire's Dance party. It was a good time as always and we are so thankful for this great group of girls and mamas! The girls looked cute and we got a couple pictures. It was a bit different though because I had to get ready for the party here at work because the party was earlier, so Claire came up here too to get pretty. I had to have my clothes picked out (and Claire's!), car packed with all the wrapped gifts for dance teachers and Claire's big sis, the night before!! I always have the kids' outfits planned but not always mine. One more fun event for this working mom :)...we managed and I was pretty proud of us :)
Tara posted many pictures from this fun night, I made a few, but I was not looking great :)
We kept our Advent Calender going this weekend too. Friday, each kid got to open a special ornament, personal to them and hang it on the tree. Owen got an ice cream truck, Claire a ballerina-pig (she loves pigs like her mama) and Bree got a stack of pancakes :). Saturday, they each had little gifts of new gloves / hats / scarves to open, perfect timing for the very chilly parade :). Last night, our card was to watch a movie as a family on pallets in the floor and drink hot cocoa...so I took it a step further since we were not all feeling great and we took early baths, put Christmas pjs on and had Breakfast for dinner :)...it was a fun night :)!
