Weekend Rewind

Sorry, this time of the season has been super crazy, and I have been putting this on the back burner! Crazy enough I miss it, I miss reading and commenting on blogs and I miss writing.      
 My Christmas cut off has come for my little side gig, so this week I am just finsihing up orders and then I’m done!          
 Our weekend was pretty good.     

 Friday I ended up going to the US super last minute. My MIL agreed to watch the kids and I went with my Mom and sister.    

The kids had a great day with Grandma.         

 Turns out my sister and I think a little too much alike... we wore the same shirts! Not even planned! We did have a good laugh over it!         

 I got home in time to say good night to the kids before heading to hang out with the girls!         
 A lot of my time this weekend was spent working, but we did have breakfast with Santa on Saturday. Em is getting one of her 2 year molars, so she wasn’t in the best mood. My Mom and sister came up for it as well.   
Just as we expected Em wanted nothing to do with the big man in red. Noah was not shy at all. Apparently he wants a trailer...          
 When it came to getting their picture taken, Noah hopped right up. He has never been afraid of Santa!          

But Em was a different story, Mike couldnt even out her down... she clung to Mike like hot glue. Poor girl! So we attempted our family photo with Santa... and well it was a huge fail too...

It just wast good and set Em off for the morning! 

We tried a family photo after we calmed her down...

She was still ticked. 

Mike took the kids Christmas shopping after the breakfast, so I went home, walked Maggie and then got working on orders!

Emilya did eventully cheer up!

We ended up having pizza before getting ready for the parade. The boys had to leave early because they were in it with the fire department, so Em and I had extra time to get ready. 

Noah got dropped off where I was standing since he was at the beginning of the parade. So he got the best of both worlds! 

The parade was great this year and the fire works were an added touch! Snow was falling. It helped get me in the Christmas spirit. 

  Later that night, the neighbours had texted to invite us over, so we decided to go as well. Luckily our baby monitor reaches!

Sunday morning M took the kids to the farm to help throw in wood with Grandpa. They loved going on the tractor with Daddy!

And Noah loves making snow angels!

I managed to get quite a few orders done. They came home for lunch and nap and then we took Mike’s parents out for dinner to celebrate Sue’s birthday early. Em was all about the ice cream...

It was a fun weekend!

December First

Wow, and just like that it is December. So we will random this post up with some life updates.  
 1) I have no clue where I stand as far as Christmas presents go! The problem with starting early is that I forget what I have bought! So clearly I need to figure that out!     
 2) Introducing the newest member of our family:    

 And by family I mean my sister’s cat. Her cat passed away a few weeks ago rather suddenly. It would have been weird for her to get a cat without me, considering I’ve always been with her when she has ever got a cat!      
3) I am teaching my first “Sign Night” on Monday and I am super nervous, yet excited! We are making snowmen! I have a group of 12 moms all signed up! Stay tuned for how it goes!
 4) We are celebratig Daddy isn’t working an hour away anymore! Man that was a long 3 weeks and we were really starting to notice a  difference in Noah’s attitude. So fingers crossed we nip that in the butt as quickly as it came!     
 5) Miss Em was up coughing every 2 minutes (I timed it) last night. So it is safe to say we are all super tired today!    
 6) We have a busy weekend ahead, we have a birthday party, fireman’s christmas party, get the boards all ready for Monday’s class, decorate the house for Christmas (another reason my toddler is grumpy) and get orders done!     
 7) I have started doing before and after school care for a friend’s daughter. I wasnt going to do this, but her schedule is pretty great! She works shift work, so I only have her every other 2 weeks, and only for 45 minutes before school and 30 minutes after. So far it is going pretty good! I think it will help get Noah ready for school too and it keeps up in a bit of a routine, which I love!     
 8) I feel like my house is littered in wine glasses, mugs and ornaments with orders. I love it, but need to figure out a better storage idea. My mom offered me a cabinet and I am pretty sure I am going to have to get it! Then I will have somewhere to put my inventory!
