Weekend Recap

What a weekend! The closer we get to the end of the year, the busier everything seems to get! And this weekend was the same way! M spent all of his time out on a Wounded Warrior sponsored hunting trip, and the kids and I did a lot of errand-running. The weather was completely bi-polar, so one afternoon we watched movies indoors, and the next we were running around the backyard getting fresh air. L has gotten a typical winter cold, complete with runny nose and hoarse throat, which is always fun, especially when it comes to sleeping. He's been up even more lately than normal, and last night, tried to fall asleep on Daddy's lap at 6pm! We roused him awake with a fun bath -- but as soon as he was in pajamas and back snuggled with Daddy and a movie, he passed out quickly. This whole transition to no naps is wearing hard on our boy. The highlight of the whole weekend, though, had to be S's kids Christmas play at church. They did a story called "The Christmas Cupcake" and sang a bunch of songs. It was adorable, and S seemed to be a natural, performing in the spotlight for a crowd of people. While some other kids clammed up and didn't sing or do dance moves, our girl's face was full of smiles and animation, while she danced the day away! Good thing -- she has another performance coming up in just a week for her dance class!

And so begins the busy/crazy of the next couple weeks! 
How's everything in your neck of the woods?!
