Shh, don't tell Evie but Henry had two doughnuts on Tuesday. Three if you count the one that he stole from Evie.
Henry loves to play outside!
Teaching Evie to drive is going to be the perfect task for her Daddy.
Henry likes to eat breakfast in this little chair.
Ice-cream with Mommy when Henry was sleeping.
Monday: Evie had dance for the first time in a few weeks. The big news was one of her friends was moving to a new state and Evie wants to know if we can move to a new state too. Everyone was a bit out of sorts from traveling and Carl had a long day at work. Best part of our day was a delicious beef stew in the crock pot!
Tuesday: Evie had school and Henry and I stayed home all day taking care of our neglected house. We went to Krispy Kreme after school and ran into Courtney and the boys. Our kids ran wild and a had a great time. Evie calls refers to this place as Christmas Kreme now which is quite clever. Carl had a dance party with the kids in the den and they both loved it. Everything is more fun with Daddy!
Wednesday: We stayed home all day which is always a nice treat until about 4:00 when we all get stir crazy. Not sure what we did all day but we were home!
Thursday: Everyone went to school! I went to the Y and then met some friends for lunch. There was just a tiny window of time left after lunch so I squeezed a little Christmas shopping in quickly before picking up Evie. Henry did not nap at school so it was time for a nap. Evie and I played outside with Courtney and the boys. It was a beautiful day! Henry was so tired and had an early bedtime. Evie and I wrote a letter to Santa and then Carl went for a haircut. I wrapped the 24 books for the month of December. It's a wonderful idea to open one book each night but it's a lot of work to implement. Not to mention Elfa, shopping, and decorating. Christmas is a whirlwind of activity.
Evie and Molly went down this slide countless times holding hands just like this - pretty cute!
Friday: Evie mailed her letter to Santa and was concerned about how the mailman was going to get the letter to the North Pole. I told her it was magic and she said, "No, silly, the mailman has a special ladder and he climbs to the North Pole with the letter." Of course, Evie that sounds exactly right! I took the kids to Monkey's Treehouse for a social for our Mom's Club. It was good to see so many people there and both my kids had a blast. Henry is a wild man and is all over the place getting into everything. He certainly keeps me on my toes. I might begin more regular visits to Monkey's Treehouse because it made for some tired kids. Henry slept a long time and Evie watched a movie. That gave me a chance to mop the kitchen! We played outside with the boys again and then came inside to prepare some dinner. Carl surprised us by coming home early.
It's going to be a busy weekend at our house. See you Sunday!
