Happy Monday! I hope that you all had a wonderful weekend! We sure did! The weekend was FULL of Christmas activities! I am REALLY in the holiday spirit now!
The weekend started with our company Christmas party! We recently moved it to the shop as it feels a lot more casual and relaxed. We still get a delicious meal catered and the guys supply the music since we have so much talent here.
It was a great way to wrap up a successful and busy season! This year we gave all the guys (and their families) their own Christmas turkey's. It was fun to pass them all out.
I headed home with Sam around bed time and enjoyed the rest of my evening doing Christmas crafts in front of the TV.
Saturday morning I was up early and made a quick batch of Maple fudge. Sam, Ryan and I headed to the city for groceries and to pick up some special treats to Grey Cup on Sunday!
When we got home and Sam went down to nap, I made my Christmas short bread cookies and got to decorating some of the house.
Saturday evening I was off for a Christmas dinner out with the girls! It was a good meal at Boston Pizza and then back to Jill's for a "Christmas Favorite Things" gift exchange!
Sunday morning I was up early and while I sipped my coffee I did a little bit of decorating! I am not putting out all my usual decorations as I am worried about Sam and some breakable ones! But this one is right on the ground for him to play with!
Sam and I headed to church for pageant practice and then back home for lunch where we had a nice visit with Shannon, Casey and Rylie.
When Sam napped, Ryan put up the Christmas lights and I decorated the porch! I have been wanting to do more decorations on our porch and have had this plan in my mind for a while!
It was a bit of extra work but I think it looks super cozy! I'm just missing a couple of blankets for the chairs!
Every year I always empty out my flower pots and pick some evergreen from the bush behind our house and re-fill the pots. I love this little project every winter! I cannot believe the price people pay for these pots at stores this time of year! To make your own is SO easy!
We had a quiet afternoon and when it got dark we all bundled up for our little tradition of "Christmas Lighting". Sam is LOVING the Christmas lights this year and kept saying "wow"!
I hope you had a great weekend!
