Anyway, here's a recap of our week
I took the girls to the Carousel Room because it's been a while since we've been. Now that it's cold out, we need to take advantage of the fun indoor places around us
Avery was able to ride the carousel by herself (sitting on the bench only) and I didn't know if I should be happy or sad she didn't need me for that - bittersweet feeling for sure!
Avery cracks me up, she always climbs in our toy box and plays in there
My Ella is a night owl and an early riser so every morning she is up first and always comes down to say good morning to me. I love her sweet self!
I took Avery to the library while Ella was as preschool and we did story time and cookie decorating. To say she had fun would be an understatement :)
Brayden had basketball practice Thursday night and I took him so I could get some alone time and catch up on some reading. He is doing really well and I love watching him improve
Friday morning Ella had her soccer class and I had to giggle because she brought her purse with her water bottle inside :) She really isn't that girly so to see her needing to bring her purse was really cute.
Friday night I had some family over to decorate ornaments. Everyone brought appetizers and we ate and drank then decorated. I let the big kids come down and decorate an ornament too but then it was time for them to head upstairs and leave us gals alone. We had alot of fun and I hope we keep this up!
You can see some peaks of our basement in these pics :)
Saturday morning we had my nieces birthday at Chuck E Cheese. The kids had a freaking blast there!
When we got home from the party, we put Miss A down for her nap and Rick took the bigs out for some secret Christmas shopping which left me alone to watch a Hallmark movie and get some wrapping done.
Later in the day we spent a long time playing with legos - the kids love these ones, they are from when I was a kid
The hubs was heading out for his annual night out with his buddies but before he left he drew Avery a picture of a snowman per her request :)
Sunday morning we headed to another birthday party for our friends' daughter. It was a trampoline place and the kids loved it!!
Brayden really wanted to do this climbing wall (it was really high) but once he got up a little bit he got scared and came down. He tried again a few more times and got a little further but that was about it. He was bummed but I told him there's always next time
After the party we went home and I got more alone time to get some wrapping done then we had my in laws over for dinner -the hubs made his famous ribs and they were amazing.
Hope everyone has a great Monday!
