September was a big month for the kids; Cordelia turned 4 and started ballet, and Bobby started Grade 3. I already feel like I took for granted how relaxed the summer was, it really didn’t feel that way at the time. We have settled into a pretty good routine though, and while it does feel like we aren’t accomplishing everything we’d like to each week… we are happy and (mostly) healthy so that’s all that matters.
Did this month disappear for anyone else? Feels like we just set the tree up. I hope you all are having a wonderful holiday season. It’s been quiet on the blog because we’ve been enjoying some quality family time these past few weeks which has been wonderful. Every Christmas with the kids gets better and better, this was Cordi’s first year of really understanding what was going on and it was so much fun. She was insanely excited to meet Santa, and was excited every morning to find where the elves were hiding.
Christmas Eve they got to open a few presents from their far-away Grandparents as well as a couple movies (Finding Dory and Secret Life of Pets – both fabulous) and new jammies from their little elf friends, then we went over to my in-laws for the traditional munchie night – where we all make way too much food and have a few drinks. Christmas morning the kids rushed down to see what Santa had brought. We put on A Kitten’s Christmas and opened gifts, then packed up and headed over to my in-laws again for brunch, more festivities, and of course an amazing turkey dinner.
Happy Friday everyone! I think we’re finally on the tail end of what seems like a string of never-ending sickness. We didn’t do much this week other than try to get healthy, but here are some pics from our trip to the Telus World of Science a few weeks back. Unfortunately I only managed to snap one of Bobby, as I was chasing Cordelia around, but I think it’s a pretty good one! I am loving the fact that I can take decent photos with my phone now that I’ve upgraded to a 6 plus – I forget my Nikon at home far too often.
What were your highlights this week? Have you managed to stay healthy this cold and flu season?
