We have had a great weekend. On Friday, Jonah received a package from some blog reader friends. It came with all kinds of goodies, including this cool light up wand thingy, car slippers, books, etc. Thank you so much, J Family. He loved everything!
Mommy was especially happy about the candy. Nothin' like a biting the head off of a chocolate Santa at the end of a long day.
During the week I did some of the decorating inside. We still have to do the outside, but it has been so cold this weekend we haven't gotten around to it. I wrapped my wall art, just like last year. I don't remember which one of you suggested that last year, but I love doing it. It makes everything feel so much more festive.
On Friday, as soon as Matt got off work, we went to pick out our Christmas tree. We had a fake one the last two years, but it was hard to set up and none of the lights work anymore, so we just decided to go real this year. I'm not sorry.
Hugging our tree. :)
Matt and I had fun decorating the tree after Jonah went to bed Friday night, and when he got up, he was very surprised. Lots of "twee" and "wowee" and "whoa".
And then, on Saturday, around midday, we got a surprise snow. They had only called for flurries mixed with rain, but it ended up being one to two inches. It was beautiful falling, but we enjoyed it from the inside.
And Jonah learned a new word: "Nooooooo" (said in awe) for "snow."On Sunday, we went to my mom's for delicious soup and to watch the Kernersville parade. She lives downtown, and it went right by her house. It was extremely cold, but we had a great time. Jonah and I had lots of layers, and I had him in the Ergo, so we benefited from each other's body heat.
Katie and Nathan came with their girls to hang out with us at the parade. Quinn and Jonah are buddies and there was lots of kissing at the end that I didn't get on camera, because we were headed out the door.
Alright, that's it for me. It has been a great but exhausting weekend and I feel like my eyes are closing as I type this. Hope your weekend was great too!
(And I'm not forgetting the zoo pictures... I just haven't gotten there yet.)
