The Weekend in Review: It’s Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas!

December 7, 2009 at 12:37 pm Leave a comment

Finally, it is, indeed, beginning to look a lot like Christmas in Texas. The temperatures are now low enough to be called cold, the heat is on, there have been fires in the fireplace, and even a brief sighting of snow! The Christmas trees and decorations are all up, Christmas shopping is busily being done, and Christmas cards are about to be dropped in the mail.

We spent our weekend enjoying all the fun that the holiday season brings.  I dashed out Saturday morning for some Christmas shopping, encountered a little delay thanks to Rosanne Cash and a busy parking lot, made a few other stops, bought some milk and Chick-Fil-A, and dashed back home.  Then the three of us did a little more Christmas shopping.  Eric made the most gorgeous fires in the fireplace both Saturday and Sunday afternoons.  We nestled in for the evening on Saturday, played and played and played with Hailey, and watched the nail biting game and final second win for Texas.  Hailey missed the final second, I guess all that playing wore her out.

After church on Sunday, we met my parents for brunch.  Hailey enjoyed her first bites of pumpkin pancakes and of course, much adoration from Grandma and Papa and the waitstaff.  After our nap, we enjoyed wrapping presents, more playing, and the season finale of the Amazing Race. 

After literally weeks of grandparents and Daddy home, Hailey has had to adjust to just having Mommy around.  And apparently, Mommy alone is not nearly as fun or helpful as having everyone else, so we had a more fussy week for both of us!  And with the next few weeks including more time with Daddy home and even more time with grandparents and aunts and uncles, I have a feeling we will have more “readjusting” to do after the holidays.  I guess that is the life of a nine month old, always having to readjust between the sleeping, feedings, naps, playing and loving.
