Happy Monday! This weekend flew by, but we had a great time! We had lots of Christmas spirit boosting activities! I’m linking up with Tanya and the Hello Monday girls to share the touches of Christmas in our house and our weekend. Get ready for lots and lots of pictures.
We kicked the weekend off with our Friday night December tradition of milkshakes, Christmas music, and Christmas lights.
The weather was BEAUTIFUL so I got outside both days for a long walk!
I started wrapping on Saturday (woohoo reaching for those December goals!). It was so weird to wrap in the daylight and without a glass of wine. But I got everything wrapped that I could with the kids around.
On Saturday night, we introduced the boys to A Christmas Story, It’s not Jeff’s or my favorite Christmas movie, but we figured it was time for the boys to watch it.
Luke and I cheered Jack and Jeff on from the couch while we streamed his basketball game on Sunday morning.
Luke and I finished a puzzle. I suggested starting the puzzle because Jack has a lot of time (at least 90 min) in the morning between waking up and school starting. I thought a puzzle would be quiet enough that I could teach and Luke could be learning while Jack kept busy. That was a bust, Luke and I were the only ones that worked on it. It was fun though!
The church where Jack and Luke want to preschool has a drive-thru Nativity every year. We were worried that it would be canceled because of COVID, but it wasn’t. It was Sunday evening and it was so nice to do something like we usually do!
We were home early and I was showered and in pjs by 6:30. I love Christmas pjs. My sister and I have matching pjs, but I doubt she’s wearing hers tonight. Her due date is this week and I am practically bursting with excitement!!
We let the boys stay up a little later to watch some of the Steeler’s game on Sunday night. Jack was pretty excited to see them play a few weeks in a row. He wasn’t up for a picture, but here’s what I got. Go Steelers!
I’m almost finished Christmas Ever After and it’s great! I love the connection to Karen Schaler’s other book Christmas Camp! And it reads like a Hallmark movie, which is always a win!
We have FOUR Christmas activities on the calendar this week and we are feeling the spirit! We are also looking at a snow possibility on Monday and Wednesday! How fun!! I hope you have a great week full of sunshine and CHRISTMAS books!
