Weekly Recap {11.20.17}

Happy Monday! Here's to a short week ending with Thanksgiving & cutting down our Christmas tree! I cannot believe the time is here for that stuff, but I'm super excited!

The girls are all preschool all week and Brayden has off Wednesday so we have lots of fun planned for our week.

Here's a look back at our week

We had a fun game night on Monday - we played Pie Face, the kids' favorite! I love Avery's face in this pic


I brought Avery to the library while Ella was in preschool. She is finally enjoying the little classes and actually sitting during story time! Hallelujah! 

but she still keeps me on my toes - the girls always run to the edge of the walkway after preschool and the parking lot is right there and it's always busy - I always tell Avery to stop at the end and she literally goes to the very edge and then stops - I had to snap a pic to document her little stinker butt!

We made yummy pumpkin muffins and they may have been gone in 2 days

We got to play outside a little

Avery's class had a Thanksgiving feast party and I was the volunteer.  I never realized how much Avery loves baby dolls, but she barely put this one down! Good thing I got her one for Christmas :) She also loves playing with playdoh!

Ella was so happy to finish this puzzle :)

I was also the volunteer at Ella's field trip - she was acting super clingy but we still had lots of fun and I love to see her interact with her little friends. 

Saturday it snowed!!! It wasn't sticking but it was the really pretty, big flakes! The kids wanted to get bundled up and head right out!

I started my wrapping while Brayden was at a friends house, Avery napped and Ella was having quiet time.

We went to a pool store later that day to get some information on a pool and the kids kept themselves busy with the free arcade games they had.


And Avery also kept busy "pouring" drinks :)

After the pool store we headed to the mall so I could pick up these shoes. I'm obsessed, but they are for Christmas so I can't wear them yet. And yes, those are kid sizes, but I'm lucky that Adidas run big, and I have small feet :)

Sunday I went to a craft fair with my Mom & sis and found some cute stuff, then we headed to my in laws to hang out. Afterwards we went to Home Depot to get some paint for our garage then headed home to relax. It was a nice relaxing weekend after a busy one which was welcomed.

  1. I have a few hallmark movies DVR'd and I seriously can't wait to find the time to watch them all! I'm so looking forward to decorating this weekend! Love that you guys played that pie in the face game!! xo, Biana BlovedBoston

  2. Pumpkin muffins...yum! You make me want to wrap now, I actually love to wrap. Love your family games and I liked the spit of snow we got...festive!

  3. What a silly face-cream game :) Wish we had snow over here... we're all still wearing shorts and Tshirts in Arizona!

  4. A relaxing weekend is a beautiful thing. That pie in the face game looks like so much fun! I love the pic of the kids outside catching snow flakes.

  5. What a great week! I can't believe it's time for all the Christmas fun to start, either! Happy Thanksgiving!

  6. I'm so jealous of your snow. We probably won't get any again this year as we're supposed to have a very mild winter. :o(
