Weekend Recap On A Wednesday! Woops

Happy Wednesday everyone! It's been a crazy couple days. Sam was sick to his stomach on Sunday night so he and I stayed home together on Monday. We had a great day but ended up doing so much, I didn't even take my computer out! 

Friday was the girls Christmas pot luck and crazy sock exchange! I loved this new idea of just Christmas socks filled with some goodies! 

Saturday morning I was up early to go to AGM and political breakfast for our local provincial MNA. It's not very often that I get to dress up and put lipstick on! 

But after the breakfast it was home back in scrubs. Made the boys lunch and when Sam went down for a nap I got most of the rest of my Christmas baking finished and in the freezer! 

It's kind of become a little tradition that Saturday night we sit in the living room with our supper and watch a Christmas movie with Sam. I've been dreaming of the day when I could start "Movie Night in Beechgrove" with my own family and I think it's starting! Woo hoo! 

A while back, I got an email from a local theater to say they were doing the musical Little Mermaid. I love The Little Mermaid and thought I could take my niece Faith with me. I surprised her with a full girls afternoon. A quick shopping trip, lunch out at Boston Pizza and then the show! It was a two hour musical and I thought she'd lose interest but surprisingly she sat in awe the while time! It was really great spending some quality girl time with her! 

Got home, made a quick supper and then bathed and got Sam in bed. About an hour later he started crying really hard which is unusual for him. Went up to check and sure enough he and his bed were covered in vomit. Yuck! Cleaned up everything, got him back to sleep and went to bed myself as Ryan was leaving for work that night. I was sure I was in for a long night. But surprisingly he slept through the night and was fine the next morning. But he needed to stay home just in case! And we had an awesome day hanging out! 

And thanks to a visit from my mom, during their play time I took sometime and decorated the sugar cookies! 

Lately, I am feeling like Christmas is right around the corner but it is still 18 days away! I have felt pressure to get things done and felt like I was falling behind. But now I don't feel that way. After a very busy weekend, the following ones are a bit quieter. And I feel ready! This Saturday I hope to watch a couple of my favorite Christmas music and start wrapping! 

How are your Christmas preparations coming? 



  1. I feel like I am ready this year, then I think harder and I'm like...I still need a gift for mom, for dad...need to buy wrapping paper, tags and tape, I still have baking to do for neighbours then I realize I am not as ready as I like to think I am lol

  2. That's fun that you took your niece for a fun day out and to the play! Glad Sam is feeling better :)

  3. Yeah, I'm like Stacy. I felt so good about being so "ready" by the end of November, but now it's December 7th and I'm realizing there's still so much to do... more baking to do, a few more gifts to buy to finish things up, so SO many movies still to watch, and no wrapping done yet. ACK!!!
