We had a really delicious lunch over at Ben’s cousins, who we don’t see nearly as much as we’d like to, and then we headed over to my mom’s for dinner (the feast above is from my parent’s house), and we ate some more. We came home so stuffed and our heart’s full from a good day of hanging out with family. The weekend was spent recuperating, seeing some friends visiting from out of town, a benefit concert, house stuff doing, and movies at night in bed. The rest of the family had taken their turn getting sick over the last couple weeks, and now I guess it’s my turn. Ugh, moms can’t get sick! I’m hoping whatever it is I’m feeling leaves soon, like this very minute soon, because we’ve got a little girl turning 4 over here tomorrow!
We haven’t even started any Christmas decorating at all! The girls keep asking about it, but I’m thinking we probably won’t even be able to get to it until this weekend. We made this advent calendar last year, so we will probably use this version again this year. Honestly though, we’re really bad at keeping up with it. It looks cute up, but life happens and we end up skipping days. Anyone else like that about their advent calendar?
