This weekend was fun, I was a tad bit nervous taking my three kids to do so much but they ended up surprising me, having a blast and being well behaved. We had so much fun that I had to share ….

First things first, we had a few people over for a pizza party, which you will read all about later on this week, sister and brother in law were part of the guests so we had some family around on Saturday morning for pizza with guests…

Next we got ready and headed out to get our tree. Normally we cut our own down for $10, but this year we went to a different place locally where they cut it for you. The kids had fun walking all over the tree farm until they finally agreed upon their tree.

The tree was taller but Kiara had the guy cut it down this short. We have a short, fat Christmas tree that was brought into the house and downstairs by Kiara and myself. Then Kiara helped me place the Christmas tree in the stand and voila, we had our Christmas tree up ready and ready.

The kids and I took a shot of all of us before we headed out to see Santa, it’s the Home of Christmas Spirit in Cornish, NH where we travel to each year to see all of the Christmas lights and see Santa too. Prior to this picture and trip, my aunt and uncle stopped by to deliver some chocolate peanut butter balls, delicious Christmas present, as seen in picture, K-man loved them so much he had to show you all his already been chewed one.

Gifts and Hot Cocoa from Santa

Since we spent most of Saturday being busy little bees, Sunday was suppose to be reserved for more of a relaxed day. We all stayed in our pajamas all day, but we did brush teeth, hair, etc.I even showered but put my pajamas back on and we just hung out at home. We decorated the Christmas tree first thing …

Last but not least we spent the remainder of our lazy Sunday doing laundry, dishes, cleaning and crafting.

While I had a great weekend with my kids, please note that I am aware of the tragedy at a Connecticut School where many innocent lives were lost and children who will not be doing things like this with their families anymore. I send my thoughts, prayers and hugs to those families who have lost their loved ones and I only hope that you can cherish and hang onto those happy times you had with your loved ones while they were here. It was a horrible, no excuse for it crime that best be punished … and my heart aches for everyone who has lost someone.
