The craziness of the holidays has hit and we’re in fast forward to 2018! I’m going to recap the past month in one post so I feel caught up:)
The girls had mismatched day at school, and Ashton thought he needed to participate as well.
I had an extra student in my CCD class because Joe was working one night and he’s been asking ever since when he gets to come back:) Next year, buddy!
Grandma Sandy sent an extra package of morning sausage over to us and Jayde was SO excited – she and I are the only ones in our house that eat it but we were loving it!
Ashton had been begging for a tie (no idea why!) so we were in Walmart one day and he found this suit/tie set and just HAD to have it. He was beyond excited and has tried to wear it to school, daycare, church, you name it…I may have to hide it soon:)
I got to celebrate Thanksgiving with Ashton and his Pre-K class and then he got to help me bake pies for Thanksgiving. I love when I get to have a little one on one time with each kiddo.
The kids and I enjoyed movie night the night before Thanksgiving – we went and saw The Star, which we all liked.
We got to celebrate my cousin Angie’s wedding with a reception the weekend after Thanksgiving – and Ashton was excited to have a reason to wear his suit!
The first weekend in December we celebrated Christmas with one side of Joe’s family. Santa made an appearance which is always a hit!
This past weekend was filled with Christmas fun. We baked Christmas goodies on Friday evening/Saturday morning, the kids got to decorate their gingerbread house, and the girls had their church Christmas program on Sunday (and another appearance from Santa!).
Charlie, our elf, has arrived and the kids are loving his daily shenanigans. Sunday night, Charlie hid in Ashton’s cowboy boot since he forgot to put them away before bed. Ashton got up in the middle of the night and needed help looking for his water bottle. We walked past his boots and he stopped to pick up whatever was in his boot (he later told me he thought it was a “random” stuffed animal). When he realized it was the elf, he threw him on the couch and started to cry. He was so worried he ruined Charlie’s magic but I assured him if we wrote a note that said it was an accident that he’d be fine. I wish I had a video of it because it was pretty funny!
Since it’s likely you won’t see another post from me until after Christmas, Merry Christmas to you all!
