Merry Christmas

Well our Christmas week didn’t go exactly as planned. Adelaide woke up sick on Monday and was sick all week. Turns out she had RSV. She is much better now, but Aedan has a mild version so once again, we are stuck at home.

We have this cute Christmas count down wall hanger and when I look at it, all I can see is how many days in December one of us was sick. We are ready for the new year! Here’s to a healthy 2015!

Santa still came despite Adelaide being sick. The kids we so fun to watch Christmas morning! I made it a point to take a lot of video Christmas morning, so I don’t have too many pictures to share.

Christmas afternoon, my parents and sister braved the germs and came over for more presents and dinner. I was going to be so bummed if they weren’t able to come so it was nice to have them over. We had so much fun visiting. I wish they all lived in town!

On Friday, Adelaide was still running a fever so she and Jon had to skip the family get together with my side of the family. Aedan and I were able to go and it was so great to see everyone.

Aedan started feeling bad on Saturday so once again we have just been hanging out at home. It has given us lots of time to play with new Christmas toys, reorganize the playroom (so there is actually room to play with the new toys), and take down Christmas decorations.

Christmas Card Carousel

I’ve been a little MIA lately…we all got sick last week. Aedan was first, then me, then Jon and lastly Adelaide. We were stuck at home for 10 days! Oh.my.gosh, longest week ever! We are all well now just in time to enjoy the last week before Christmas break!!

I’ve participated in Faith’s Christmas Card Carousel since 2009! You can go here for last year’s card and the links to the past years.

Here is our card this year…might be my favorite yet!

I’m hoping to take some pictures of our Christmas d├ęcor and get a post up later this week. Tomorrow the kids have a Christmas pageant at school. Aedan is Joseph! I can’t wait to see both up them up on stage. Hopefully I’ll have some good pictures and videos to share!

Thanksgiving Week

We had such a great Thanksgiving week.

Monday, I got a babysitter for the kids, and my mom and I did some shopping. We had a great time hanging out and enjoyed a nice lunch too. I wish she lived in town all the time so we could do these little dates more often!

On Tuesday, the kids and I met my parents at the Thinkery (our local children’s museum). We had not been since it opened at its new location. It was a fun morning! We had lunch and then spent the afternoon up at my parents house.

You can’t tell, but Aedan is way up at the top. He had a blast climbing all over this play set. He probably would have stayed all day!

On Wednesday, I needed a day at home. We met some friends at the park to enjoy the gorgeous weather and other than that, we just relaxed at home.

Thursday, Jon did the Turkey Trot with his sister and friends. My sister came over and we just hung around the house until it was time to head to my cousin’s house for Thanksgiving dinner.  photo 1

Friday, the only Black Friday shopping I did was online. We got all our Christmas stuff out and decorated the house.  I bought a new Christmas tree and ornaments after Christmas last year so it was fun to get everything out and set up. I am pretty happy with out tree this year (pictures coming soon!).
