7 days. 7 days until Christmas. Thank the Lord I am done with my Christmas shopping. We really need to go to Costco for supplies but I am avoiding that place like the plague until December 27th.
Here’s what fun things we were up to last week!
Day 345: We went to see Casper Babypants at the library! If you don’t know who Casper Babypants is, he’s the lead singer of the Presidents of the United States of America (you know, the band that sang “Lump” and “Millions of Peaches”). He’s a Seattle native and now writes and sings children’s songs and visits a lot of the public libraries in our area. His wife writes and illustrates children’s books as well so we have a lot of his music and her books.
Day 346: Santa photos! She did really well. She didn’t necessarily want to look at Santa too much, but she was well behaved, didn’t cry and told him what she wanted for Christmas (a doll). We got that covered. 🙂
Day 347: Saturday Huebie and I finished our Christmas shopping. My parents came to watch baby girl so we could do our shopping for her. Then we went to dim sum. Oh man I love dim sum.
Day 348: Half time baking extravaganza! We made mint chocolate chip cookies and a snickerdoodle bundt cake that was a hit at work. And Little A got her hands on the mixing paddle and went to town. And the Hawks won. It was a good day.
Day 349: Santa photo success! I mean, I swear she looks like a 5 year old in this photo. My boss said, “She’s too pretty.” I do tend to agree that she’s darn pretty. 🙂
Day 350: This really is a horrible photo. Sorry. Our phones rock when you have lots of light, but not so much when it’s a bit dark. But Huebie and I spent some quality time together the other evening. He’s been working on the sleds most evenings after we put Little A to bed, so we rarely just hang out and have time for us. It was nice.
Day 351: Little A’s preschool went Christmas caroling yesterday! It was so cute! She actually didn’t really sing, just stood there and tried to get her little friend to hold her hand, but she looked adorable doing it. 🙂
And now I’m pooped. We are in a very trying time with baby girl. Her listening skills have been non-existent lately and it is very trying on our nerves. So far, 3 is way harder than 2 was. Don’t let that sweet face fool you folks, when girlfriend doesn’t get her way it’s game on.
Not sure if I’ll have a Friday post or not this week so if I don’t, have a great weekend friends!
