Catching up from a busy weekend

Our weekend started last Friday night with Kendall having a friend spend the night. I don't think kindergartners are ready for this. By bedtime, (10 pm), they were on each other's nerves. Kendall crying, Sydney egging her on. They woke up at 6 am, and I heard Kendall say, "I'm still sleepy." Poor child. I knew how she felt.

After the kids were up and ready we headed out to our Wegman's grocery store to have breakfast with Santa. Originally, it was to be a family affair with my husband coming along. Pete dropped the bomb on me two days prior by informing me that he was going duck and goose hunting. Great. So, I stupidly offered to take Sydney with us to the breakfast (since we had pre-paid). It was a buffet breakfast which meant I was going back and forth to the table to get food that would just sit there. The kids hardly ate anything. What's new? I stuffed my face to make up for what they wasted. Finally, our number was up to go see Santa. It is pretty magical.

Kendall wants a snow globe. And Clayton wants "wots of fast cars".

After the breakfast, Sydney's mom picked her up and the kids and I went home. Kendall took a nap as soon as she got home. At 3 pm, Kendall went to a birthday party. After that, both kids went to another birthday party. It was quite a busy day.

Sunday, we went to church in the morning and then we went out that afternoon to get our Christmas tree. You can see some pictures here. We started decorating and immediately, the ornaments started breaking. Kendall dropped one, I dropped the lights, etc.

Needless to say, I was very glad when it was time to go to sleep on Sunday night. I think I am still tired.

I like the camo hat! The hills there look a lot like the one at home in NY.

Your stories make me want to have kids! I hope someday I do...
