Whew! I have been trying to get back here for the last couple of days and have not been able to.
Everyone at home has been either experiencing or coming down with the Christmas crud! I have been trying to shake this thing since Thanksgiving weekend and the crazy weather we have been experiencing here has been oh so helpful!
This weekend was chock-a-block with Christmas excitement. On Saturday morning we went and had breakfast with Santa and Mrs. Claus. At first my son would not go over to talk with Santa and dug in his heels while chanting- NONONO...but once we got him up there and we all sat with Santa for a great pic...he changed his tune. So much so- that we were almost reported for Santa Stalking! C.I. went back up there by himself about 5 times, one time just to talk with Santa because he was alone, another time to tell Santa he loved him, then to take him some food and finally to give him a cookie that he had decorated so Santa could eat it on his break!
My husband says he was just working Santa for presents- I thought it was really sweet!
We also went to the Winter Festival and this year was the best parade ever! Floats, people in costumes and every entry in the parade was decorated for the holidays! Way to go Tallahassee!!
Sunday was spent cleaning and putting up the tree and trying to commune with the cats so that they will not eat or knock it down while we are at work and school during the day. Then last night we went to church to see their Advent Lessons and Carols performance. It really put me in the holiday mood! The choir was awesome and the lessons were great- reminding us of what the season is really about.
This week it is back to the reality of the daily grind. Work, meetings, school program preparations and PTO duties.
We are in the midst of transition a very important vendor at work and if I make it to the new year I will be greatful!
Until the next time- hope everyone out there is making the most of the season with their family and friends!
Wishing you all very merries!
