Friday was a busy day for us, but it was filled with fun and was actually a really good day considering our week with tantrums.
I took Noah to go and visit Grandpa and Daddy in the field and guess what... I didn't take one picture!! In fact I didn't even pull out my phone once to find an hr and half later I had a tone of missed messages! Oops!! Long story short, Noah had a blast "helping" out in the field. We went for a kobota side by side ride, he helped load tile, went for a tractor ride with Grandpa and rode in the big plow for a while. He was like a kid in a candy store, wanting to ride each machine!! It's nice that they are soo close to home for a change so I can take home field trips (literally) whenever this week. It also means M's travel time isn't as long either!!
We stopped at the farm to have an impromptu lunch with Grandma, staying up way past naptime, but we got home for 2:00 and he still had a 2 hr nap!! N and baby Kara came over for a visit, so I was able to give her thier photos I took a while back and catch up! Noah loved pulling off the baby socks and sharing with her.
Friday night was nice and low key, Noah was still on cloud nine from his day, which made life soo much easier during the hardest part of our day. He was still talking about it when M got home.
Saturday morning M took Noah to work. It completely through off his whole morning routine, in a good way, but he didn't quite get what we were saying until we started getting him dressed for outside! He had a blast with Daddy surveying. While the boys were at work, I had a quiet hour to myself before getting ready to head into town to do some running around.
I started off with dropping off my laptop to get it diagnosed and recovered. Fingers crossed they can at least recover my hard drive!! I should hear back today or tomorrow. Then I decided to try to find some fabric for a project in Noah's room... I came out empty handed. I headed to Winners to attempt some Christmas shopping... It was a zoo!! I couldn't find my dry shampoo, but did get an ornament for Noah and a sweater for myself!! Why the heck did I even try Christmas shopping on a Saturday... I'm way better off to brave the store during the week with a toddler in tow than shopping
on a weekend! Last stop was to Home Depot to exchange the can of ceiling paint I bought Thursday because it didn't have primer built into it. Then I picked up Noah on my way back home.
After nap he was still pretty chill, which was good because when M got home from work, he went right to painting while Noah napped!
Saturday night we got our first snow storm. It came down. We got about 10 cm, but hopefully it's gone by the end off the week when he get above zero temps again!! I know we can't complain, we have really had it good, but it also meant snuggles on the couch!!
We decided to have M's parents over for dinner, so we tried a new crock pot ham recipe, it was rather simple to make, with pineapple juice, and brown sugar and then about half way through we added some pineapple slices inbetween slices we made into the ham. The flavour was soo yummy!! I kept Noah busy all morning while M finished painting, then during nap time I headed out to pick up a new rug for the nursery, so we could just use the current rug in there for Noah's room. I also grabbed some groceries while I was out. The stores were busy, I think the new snow put everyone in the Christmas shopping mood.
My drive home from town was low visibility because it had started to squall out, so my first winter driving if the season happened. Luckily the roads weren't slippery.
We enjoyed a nice dinner and M's Dad helped M start building Noah's big boy bed. Of course Noah had to help too!!
M finished putting the bulk of the bed together after Noah fell asleep and it is almost all done, with just the drawers left to assemble.
This morning I woke up feeling a cold coming on... Which sucks. I'm pretty sure I know where it came from... But how can I be mad at this face:
