I know I do not really do weekend recaps but considering the season we are in…I must!
The last day of school for 2016! #godgivemethestrength
We picked up loads of Dunkin Donuts and took munchkins to the third grade breakfast and a couple dozen to the preschool. #jackthemuponsugar
I took off to the post office to deliver packages. The nicest postal worker every took my packages and did all the work for me! #thatiscustomerservice #ilovemypublicservantworkers
In my downtime at home I totally cleaned the lower level and reorganized a couple areas. To say I’m in the Christmas spirit is a massive understatement. #girlgotgame
Did I mention it was freezing? I woke up to 19 degrees and swear it stayed there all day long. #iwillletthispassasitischristmas
My goal for Friday night was comfy clothes, hot coffee, and driving around admiring other’s Christmas decor. Well… it did not happen but falling asleep in the recliner watching Christmas Vacation did happen….at 8:40. #yeahbaby #thatshowiroll #idontknowaboutyoubutifeelthirtyfive
My Saturday was spent cleaning a move in. The kids went to my local in-law’s house for the day. It was cold, rainy, and just yuck outside! #gooddaytoworkorjustsleep
Saturday evening was the kids’ nativity at church. They did well! My daughter is Mary but you can barely see her. My son is a camel.
Afterwards, the hubs and I took the kids downtown and then off to see Christmas lights around our little map dot. I was unable to take pictures since I was in charge of the ship. #alwaysthedriver
Is now a good time to tell you that I am up by 6 on the weekends? Ugh, yes. Since we began Christmasing with family yesterday I was up and ready to tidy up my house and get things ready for my SC in-laws (my husband and I are both from divorced families) visit.
The hubs worked so the kids and I made it to the late service at church. #justwhatineeded
When we got home I finished up lunch – pork tenderloin, creamed potatoes, green beans, corn, and cookies! Then I sat my butt down and chilled with a nice glass of Pinot Noir. #cheaperthanprescriptions
When the in-laws arrived the kids were totally ecstatic! #hellopresents
My night was spent baking and watching TV! I made cow patty cookies (AKA no bake chocolate oatmeal for you city slickers) and the most addictive cookie known to man – Oreo Cream Cheese. Shut your mouth they are the best.
I also sipped a lot more Pinot Noir since my mom kept the kiddos overnight – I am working three days this week. She let the kids come sleep over at her place so they didn’t have to wake up early with me! #thanksmama #proofiamthebestdaughter #somehowthatfits
That’s our weekend in a nutshell. I hope your weekend was festive and fun. Here’s to the start of a busy week. I hope we all have smooth work days and extra time off to celebrate Christmas and the holidays with our families! #andthatisthat
Wishing you a blessed week!
