Just wanting to recap some of the things we have been up to lately...
One of our family traditions is to take our kids to the Christmas store usually at the end of Oct. or in Nov. when it is not so busy (note to self- do not go in Dec. AGAIN) each of our kids pick out a new ornament to hang on our tree and someday we will give them a box full of ornaments when they have their own homes. It is always fun to see what they choose. When we pulled up to the store lil guy shouted out "look at the man with the big clothes" we all laughed at that one...too cute.
|Had to get a pic with "the man with the big clothes"|
So the new ornaments we ended up coming home with were a pirate, a lion, three different cats on jingle bells and a fortune cookie...when we came home we decorated our tree.
|We got this for our new lil one|
We celebrated hubby's birthday...(his 29th AGAIN!!!??)
He was off that day so he went to the movies with blessing #1 to see Skyf*ll (such a guy thing)
later we all made him a special dinner and he had his favorite banana splits with homemade ice cream instead of cake. The next day the kids all went to stay the night at Grandma and Poppas for the annual tradition of going to "grandma's lighted parade" and homemade waffles for breakfast. We did our traditional Christmas shopping outing.
