this weekend DH and big c finished the quarter pipe they have been working on. (much to my dismay! can you say 911?) but he is enjoying it sooo much. he can't wait to get home from school and jump on his skateboard and go at it. here's a pix.
yesterday we headed to the big mills outlet mall to see santa. big c got upset when i told him we were going so i let him skip school and go with monkey and i. boy am i glad i did. we had the BEST time!! we got to the mall as it opened so it wasn't too crowded. we looked at stuff they kids wanted and stuff i wanted to look at. i did some gift shopping and they got to have lunch at the BK Lounge. (very exciting for them!) we looked at the ginormous fish tank they have at the bass pro shop. i let them get some candy at the candy store. and i had a coupon for $5 off a build a bear. since i have boys we have never done that before. oh my gosh! it was so fun. monkey had a great time! and big c is just the best brother ever!
to top off the day we went to see Enchanted. if you haven't gone, GO!! it was great. and the best part was we were the only people in the whole theater!! we had our own private screening. which was good because i laughed like an idiot!! i can't wait to see it again. it was a great family movie. go see it!
holy cow we are sooo busy this weekend. tonight we have a party. grown-ups no kids. nice for us. and tim and cathy are going with us. tomorrow monkey has a special mrs claus day at pre-school. they are going to make cookies and decorate ornaments. he is very excited. when we pick him up we are headed to cornelius for band practice. (which is about an hour drive! i could kill tim) we have a concert there in a week or so and he wants us to practice to get a feel for the place. so we won't be home until about 7. then sunday church and i'm doing the nursery at the 11:00 service. 3:00 is the cookie exchange at dan and kari's. which means while monkey is at his special saturday pre-school gig i get to make cookies and go shopping for a laptop. (keep your fingers crossed i can find a good deal!)
boy i'm pooped just thinking about it. but i got something new to wear tonight so i'm excited! and new earrings!
now i'm headed into the kitchen to try melissa's chocolate covered marshmallows and pretzel rods.
