Good morning ladies how are you doing today? I hope you all had a really nice Christmas.
Last weekend was spent pretty much getting ready for Christmas and for going to my in-laws on Christmas Eve. On Christmas Eve morning and the kids woke up the stockings were full! Santa knew they wouldn’t be there on Christmas morning so as is his tradition he stopped by our house a day early. They also had a few presents to open!
At about 3 p.m. we left for the 2-hour Drive. It went really well and there was no need for any bathroom breaks, yay . We got there a little late for Christmas Eve Mass at their local church. We had a nice evening of food and games. There was also more presents to open! On Christmas morning we went to mass for the Nativity of Our Lord Jesus Christ. It was really cute the priest had all the kids come up to the manger area during his homily and explain the birth of Jesus in their terms.
After church more of the extended family started to arrive for dinner. We had some great food and chat and spent a lovely afternoon together. We packed everything up and we’re ready to be on the road again at 7 p.m. We had extra stuff to bring home than what we arrived with! The few days since Christmas have been pretty quiet as there is the flu going around and we don’t want to contaminate others. I think we are getting close to being over it now though!

Good morning ladies! I hope your weekend is off to a great start! Temperatures have started to improve since last week it is 19 degrees Fahrenheit or -7 Celsius. It is a warm-up! By tomorrow it’s supposed to be in the late thirties .
Last Sunday after church that was a Christmas party with a light lunch and the kids got to make over 20 different crafts. They had fun gluing and glittering and pinning on various items!
This week has been busy with last-minute Christmas preparation. The kids finished school yesterday, we went to see our Pre-K son perform in the little Christmas Pageant, it was cute. The kids also brought little gifts for their teachers in appreciation for all they do.
We will leave at around noon on Christmas Eve to go to my in-laws for Christmas . We usually go to Christmas Eve church and then stay over the following day. What are your plans for Christmas?

Good morning ladies ! How are you today? As I type it is -6f or -22c with sun. It is the same minus temps it was last week with an ever increasing blanket of snow forming on the ground . We had a few small snowfalls during the week . At least the sun is shining , I will take that small victory!
Last weekend was pretty quiet for me , with housework and a little shopping. The week up until Friday was pretty uneventful . We went to our local Mexican restaurant on Friday night , taking our daughter’s Friend with us. Saturday Morning there was more housework ( go figure!) In the afternoon we went to the mall to meet the extended family . ( my father -in-law arranged a guys night out at the monster jam truck event at the vikings stadium ) and the Girls hungout at the mall for a few hours . Win win for everyone ! It was close to midnight when we got home after the two groups met up again . Today after Church there is an arts and crafts Christmas party for the kids.
My Christmas decor: as promised to you who asked here are pics of our Christmas decorations !
I hope you enjoyed a look into our home !

Good morning Ladies ! I am a day late writing this week , I got a little busy yesterday with the kids and household stuff. Last Sunday after Church we surprised the kids by telling them we were going to Great wolf Lodge Waterpark for the day and staying overnight in the hotel! They were very excited , they had Monday off school, an extension of the Thanksgiving weekend. We packed up and arrived there at 3 pm, the room wasn’t ready until 4pm but they wanted to go in the park so badly they changed in the locker rooms . I waited until we got to the room to get into my swimsuit though.
We swam , tubed , slid, paddled for an hour and a half then went to Perkins for dinner . Then it was back until 9pm when the waterpark closes. We came back to the room cleaned up watched some tv then eventually sleep ! The room had two sets of bunkbeds and a queen for us. We used the park again the next morning after having breakfast and had to then check out by 11am. There was a lot of fun had! Tuesday was back to normal for all . The week went by quickly to Friday . We are having a quiet weekend , the kids had some playdates Friday and Saturday , Our Daughter had a sleepover Friday night.
Today after Church our monthly Pancake breakfast takes place. It is also the Feast of the Immaculate Conception of Mary .
