Recapping our week on the blog! Christmas crafts, class party, nail day, festival of lights, and getting ready for Santa.
Monday December 19
Started the week off with some elf shenanigans, all Kevin’s idea which I love how he sometimes just does things on his own because he knows how much Hadley loves it. When Hadley got home from school, she was on full Huxley mode. She gave him her attention until he went to bed basically. Just love her.
Tuesday December 20
Hadley couldn’t find the elf before she left for school, he was chilling on the banister. Huxley has still been refusing his bottles lately, but we finally bought the bigger size nipples. Poor guy was drinking out of 3-month-old ones! Aunt Amy dropped off some Christmas crafts for Hadley, and she had a ball making them. Before bedtime, Hadley and I played some rounds of Uno while Kevin gave Huxley a bath.
Wednesday December 21
Hadleys last day of school before Christmas break! We gave her some black boots she desperately needs for the winter, her feet grow like crazy. I was able to volunteer for her class party at school, I did the pin the hat on Santa game it was fun watching all the kids interact with each other. After a half day of school, I surprised her by going to get our nails done! Kevin and I are trying this new thing with Hadley this year, once a month at or around her birthdate we are going to do something with her one on one. It can be as simple as playing a board game, but it’s the point of making it one on one time with either Kevin or I. She was so excited. Hadley got her toes done since she bites her nails, I’m not paying for her to get her nails done haha, and I got my nails done. The nail tech did a great job with our Christmas requests! Later on in the day, we met our cousins for the festival of lights. It was kind of cold, but it was fun. We didn’t stay long because the train ride line was insanely long, and because of Huxley too.
Thursday December 22
Huxley tried these teething sticks by Gerber, he liked them a little bit. I don’t think he was sure what to do with it, they were disgusting to me because they remind me of raw hides you’d give your dog, all slimy and gross!
Friday December 23
In the morning, we woke up to the blizzard of 2022! Snow and ice everywhere, it was a mess. Icicles on our “older” windows, as I shoveled half the driveway my hair started to freeze. Hadley and I made cookies for Santa, she picked out the ones he would like and poured his glass of milk for him. After the kids went to bed, Santas elves put all the presents under the tree.
Saturday December 24
Christmas Eve was a little busy! We started our morning with doing our Christmas with just Kevin, myself, and the kids. Then we went over to our cousins for my side of the family Christmas, and then my parents and brothers family came over to my house to do Christmas. Busy for sure! Huxley didn’t know what to do with all the activity. It was great to see everyone, but it was a very long day.
Sunday December 25
Christmas Day morning, we hung out, opened toys, and just relaxed. For dinner, we went to the firehouse! Hadley had so much fun she didn’t want to leave, but we had to because I didn’t want to leave too late with the roads potentially being black ice.
Happy Monday everyone, hope you have a great last week of 2022! And as always, thanks for reading!
