Dress of the week December 28th

 

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!

Wishing you all a very happy 2020 with lots of good things to look forward to. Thank you all so so much for following me throughout the year with all your kindness ❤ Terri xo.

Dress of the week December 21st

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?

Dress of the week December 15th

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 !

Dress of the week December 8th

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 .
