Scenes from Our {Festive} Weekend

Monday, December 18, 2017

Did you have a good weekend? I can't believe Christmas is in one week. We still have a couple of things to check off the holiday bucket list this week, including: drive around and look at Christmas lights, watch Home Alone & The Holiday, and visit Santa. Needless to say, it will be a festive week. ;) It was also a festive weekend over here, though. Here's some of what we were up to:

Friday was pretty low key. We made a quick trip to Target after school and then it snowed for the rest of the afternoon. Carrington has been really into helping us cook lately, so she helped me prepare our dinner: Pesto pasta with roasted brussel sprouts and spicy chicken sausage. This was a really quick and tasty dinner, if you need something new to try!

Saturday I took Hadley into the doctor around lunchtime to have her ears checked since she hadn't been sleeping well for the past couple of nights (very uncharacteristic for her). Low and behold, she had fluid in her ears, so the doc prescribed an antibiotic to prevent it from turning into a full blown ear infection. So far, so good... she's already doing much better. Saturday evening we headed out for an early dinner at one of our favorite places, Zinburger, and afterward the girls marveled at the giant Christmas tree right outside. It is so magical to see this time of year through their eyes.

Sunday we played indoors, delivered cookies and cards to our neighbors, and after Steve got back from a lunch with friends I ran out to finish up some shopping. As busy as it was out there, everyone was being so kind, patient, and helpful. We had crockpot Italian beef hoagies for dinner -- another easy recipe idea. That evening I missed a phone call from my friend who lives two hours away. When I listened to the voicemail, it was her and a big group singing "We Wish You A Merry Christmas" into the phone! What a fun surprise. I love carolers, and especially love that she thought of us from afar. :)

I have a couple of fun posts planned for this week! Tips for hosting easy and affordable holiday parties, my New Year's resolutions, and maybe a little fashion post (I know!) if I get around to it. Hope you have a great start to the week!
