Weekend Happenings

November 17, 2014

This is our last weekend of calmness before the holiday season kind of takes over our life.

Next week we’ll be out of town for a work conference, then only home for a few more days before loading up the car and doing the family road trip thing up to Colorado to have Thanksgiving with my family. I gotta tell you, Thanksgiving is less than two weeks away and my anxiety about the car ride is starting to build. Logan always starts off good, and then after an hour or two we loose him. He’ll take a little nap, and then he’s back at it. So, packing snacks and car activities is going to be my game plan. Not to mention trying to figure out how to travel with pies, side dishes, and a breakfast casserole. Oh and I’m running a Turkey Trot race with my cousin Thanksgiving morning…and seeing Colorado’s snow fall pictures and fa-reezing temperatures is making me have second thoughts.

But any-who, that’s weeks away. Let’s talk about the now.

My dreams as a parent were finally brought to life this weekend. Teaching Logan the magic of Christmas! We spent Saturday morning in Christmas plaid fleece jammies, watching Frosty the Snowman. This was probably the first time that Logan actually watched a movie. We didn’t make it through the whole thing, but he would watch chunks of it, go play, come back, watch another chunk.  Whenever he would see Frosty’s hat, he would pat the top of his head and ‘oooohhh’. So cute! There was also some dancing and booty shaking when Frosty would start to sing.

We snacked on snowman poop [yogurt covered raisins] and turkey doughnuts. 

After our movie was done, we did some chores around the house.

Logan is turning in to quite the helper. Even though it takes double the time, it’s so fun to watch him get excited about vacuuming. Too bad that feeling doesn’t last. He runs around the house screaming while I vacuum, he thinks I’m chasing him. This time though, he pushed his little lawn mower around the house mimicking me. When I’m done vacuuming, he gets to push the button that wraps up the cord. He favorite task. He does it about 100 times. Then he helps me push the vacuum back to it’s home.

As we’re putting it away, he noticed the attachments. He pulled it right off, and claim it as his new sword. He walked around the rest of the day with the tube extender. 

We also spent the weekend indulging in cravings. Mac and cheese with a side of pancakes. This is what you get when you order off the kids menu to try and save a few bucks, and your kid only wants to eat the strawberry that came as the garnish to the pancake.
