winter weekend…

21 Nov

…this weekend was wonderful. in no particular order:

*a well deserved hot chocolate date between two mamas…

*a cold cold coldest trip to the santa claus parade (equals warmer socks and long johns). this is the first year that e knows of santa (she claims she saw it on an episode of wonder pets, so who knows), so i think we’re gonna roll with it. the parade was that sort of long, drawn out, too much space between floats sort of parade – so we booked it in our sleeping-bagged stroller to where the parade began, gave a big wave to santa (a good santa, as far as that goes), and got home before our toes fell off.

*scones, pesto pizza snacks, banana bread….tea!

*putting up the christmas lights outside – finding the fully decorated garland with lights and tacky pearls from last year ( yesss…) and getting that christmas feeling when the sun goes down and we can see them through the window.oh, and i add to this the hot friday night date that we took (as a family, ha!) to canadian tire to get these christmas lights. seems the past years have done something to our friday nights…hmmm…

*a successful thrifting trip for me and e. ‘successful in finds or lack of tantrum?’ asks t. both i say – we found some great games (see that photo above with all the wooden squares), giant knitting needles, the craziest looking one-armed tree topper and some old-timey christmas books. a happy saturday afternoon.

*sleeping. good nights of sleeping children. pretend naps. all of it.

*learning of (and catching up on all the episodes) this show…who doesn’t love zoey.

looking forward to this week!
