What an amazing, amazing week we had! Even though time seems to be flying by we are enjoying all the things and having a great December.
Last week we played outside in the snow after school. This kid would spend all day out there if I let him, and if it wasn't so cold I may just have :)
We drove around and looked at lights on Wednesday night. We gave the kids hot chocolate, marshmallows and Brayden snuck a candy cane - We go to the same neighborhood and while all the houses are gorgeous there is one that is covered in decorations and is soooo pretty to look at
I took Brayden out of school an hour early so we could head to the mall to see Santa. Before you go sit on his lap and talk to him, you go through this ice palace where there is falling snow (whyyyy I have no idea, because the kids hair looks obnoxious by the time we see Santa). Avery was loving it! She would pick it up and throw it at me and my Mom or her siblings, then she proceeded to lay down and make snow angels, which of course big sister had to follow. They sure did have everyone cracking up!
Thursday I got to volunteer at Ella's school. They had a play day and all these fun activities were brought in. Halfway through we made cookies for tomorrows holiday party. I love spending time at school with my kids!
Thursday night I took Brayden with to go see my nephews Christmas performance. These kids were all sooooo cute and hilarious at the same time. I love how much my nephew loves Brayden and I just wish Brayden could smile the right way sometimes!
Friday Ella had her last soccer class. I got to play with her and we had so much fun! I was thankful Avery was happy sitting and watching a show on my phone for the most part and then she joined us on the field :)
Friday night, the kids had pizza and then we made our gingerbread house. Why are those things sooooo stressful with kids? Ha! I think next year each kid gets their own. And I'm pretty sure Avery ate 50% of the candy it came with. Seriously, every time we looked at her, she popped more candy in her mouth. It's hard to get mad at that cutie!
Later in the night we had to make our cheese fillings for our cookie/pierogi day the next day. Avery was my cute little helper!
The girls had a touch of croup, so before bed we had to take the girls outside all bundled up to breathe the cold air - this is our life this time of year!
Saturday morning we took the kids sledding and I was so excited since last winter I didn't get to go once and they only went with Rick one time. Aside from some tears because snow was in their face or they fell off the sled, it was a really fun time and by the end no one wanted to leave.
Later in the day we headed to my sister in law and brother in laws house for cookie/pierogi day. The girls/kids make cookies and the guys make pierogis. We all had a great time and came home with some serious goodies!
We got home and put the kids right to bed and I managed to get a second wind and finish wrapping all the presents #momwin. I also finished the second season of Fuller House and yes, I know it's a cheesy show but I really enjoyed this season, even more than the first.
Sunday was Christmas with my hubby's side and I managed to take 0 pics. The kids all got so much awesome stuff and we ate way too much food and had a great time.
Have a great Monday!
