weekly highlights

Hi everyone! Hope you are having a wonderful weekend. I don’t think I’ve posted weekly highlights since Christmas, we’ve had a never ending circle of sickness and January was a busier month than anticipated.

On to the fun stuff though – The big highlights in January were of course Bobby’s 5th birthday, and my sister-in-law and her husband had a baby boy! ♥ He showed up a few weeks early but both mommy and baby are doing well and he is so precious 🙂

With Bobby in Kindergarten, we decided to actually throw him a birthday party this year – and chose The Fun Dome. The great thing about this place is it is booked strictly for your party, so there are no other kids running around! It had bouncy castles / slides, mini golf, a room with smaller toys and large building blocks, and after all the playing the kids had hot dogs and of course cupcakes. Bobby said it was the best birthday ever – and that all the kids were talking about it at school on Tuesday, so I think it was successful!

2014 christmas highlights

Happy 2015 everyone! I hope you had an amazing holiday season. Bobby got everything prepared for Santa’s arrival Christmas eve by saying goodbye to Elfie and putting out goodies for Santa and his Reindeer. Christmas morning the kids opened presents from Santa and my side of the family at home, Bobby was super excited for the stuffies from Grandma and Grandpa, and his new transformers from Santa. Cordelia loved everything – especially the wrapping paper.

After that, we headed over to my in-laws for brunch and more gift opening, followed by family time and a delicious turkey dinner. Boxing day the big guy came down with the flu, and then I did – so the rest of the holidays have pretty much been spent in our pajamas, but after a really hectic month, it’s been nice just hanging out at home.

The last picture is Bobby when he was 11 months, and Cordelia at 15 months – both on xmas day playing with the same can… and they both played with it for longer than any other toy that day!

What were your highlights this holiday season? Did you get spoiled? What did Santa leave under the tree for you?

12 days until Christmas! December has gone by so quick, anyone else freaking out and totally not ready? This week our big highlight was going to my MIL’s kids Christmas party. There was a big buffet breakfast, a magician, a balloon artist, and of course Santa himself. I was worried that Cordelia would cry, but she was perfectly fine! Bobby of course had a blast, and they both enjoyed ripping open their first present of the season.
