Well the first weekend of December is officially over. We got a few Christmas things done this weekend, the tree is up and decorated (it's been up since Monday),
Brooklynne's baby tree in her room is up and decorated
I'm really excited about her little tree and she gets a huge smile on her face when she sees it in her room. Matt got most of the lights put up on the outside of the house and we got a little bit of Christmas shopping done.
On Friday, Brooklynne and I took our friends Whitney and Katarina out to breakfast at the waffle shop and we had such a great time! Kat is so much fun and a big goof, B watched her play with the creamer!
Friday evening we ran some errands
just putting her feet up
and then decided to go to Fresh Choice for dinner, and oh my goodness, it is not what I remember it was when I was little.
It was absolutely horrible!! The tossed salads were wilted, the lettuce was brown and soaking, the pizza was dry, potatoes shriveled, and cookies so hard they almost broke my tooth. There were probably 10 people in there including us on a Friday night, and it seemed like they hadn't remade any of the food for 3 or 4 hours. I decided to ask for our money back, and the cashier didn't seem too shocked when I told her the reason.
We went over to Black Bear Diner for dessert and got the blackberry cobbler a la mode, which was delicious!
Saturday morning we walked over to church for the Angel Breakfast, which is just for families with children under second grade.
We were served breakfast by angels
and then we got to make a craft, which Brooklynne wasn't really in to.
so Matt made it instead, it's a nativity scene.
love my little girl
After the craft we got to go see animals, and she loved them!! There were ducks, chickens, a pig, goats, sheep bunnies, and even a donkey.
This little chicken had the face of a vulture, it was pretty terrifying.
Brooklynne even got to meet the three wisemen
and Mary and Joseph.
We went to the Farmers Market with Matt's parents that afternoon and saw a bunch of Santas playing ukeleles.
Sunday I went to church by myself (B was napping and Matt was sick). We spent most of the afternoon just hanging out, and it was so nice.
We love this time of year and it's so much fun decorating for it!!
