This week has been so darn COLD. I mean freezing! We got spoiled with a beautiful November and winter last year was so mild we had to know it was coming but it also makes it that much harder!
I had a staff Christmas photo in the morning, we took it at the mall in Santa’s area so of course Avery wanted a photo on his chair:
After we stopped at Starbucks, our treat for getting ready and out to door by 8:30am in -30 temps!
This little one LOVES her jumper these days:
It has also made her want to stand all the time. Sigh. I am not even sure what we did all afternoon…
After a rough night for both girls – Chloe came down with a bad cough and Avery was just off I debated skipping yoga but Avery wanted to go, until we got there. Luckily, the teacher is awesome and all turned out ok. I enjoyed a latte while Avery was in class.
Avery continued to have an off day which happens, even dressing up as a princess did not make life better 😉
Chloe giving me the stink face after not getting food for 0.2 seconds 😉
We decided to meet my Mom for coffee after naps to get out for a bit. Chloe hates the cold, Avery does not mind it!
I had a run on the agenda but Chloe would not nap so I was running 5 minutes at a time and then going up to settle her, after 20 minutes of that I brought her down with me. Thankfully she was good to play for the last 20 minutes:
We had a couple appointments – one to sign up the girls for dayhome and Chloe had a doctor appointment. In 5 weeks she gained 2lbs!!
How Avery insists on wearing a toque, but it is better than her not wearing one!
We did sensory play during Chloe’s nap:
I finally feel like Avery is at a good age for this! Oh and she helped me wrap gifts then later told Chad “Your present is a secret, want to see your shirt?” – thanks kid 😉
My Mom joined us for a morning of swimming, then we had a small lunch at Starbucks:
She is in the “take my photo stage”.
Both girls passed out on the drive home so I started lunch and baking:
I made cookies for Chad’s treat day today 😉 I definitely do not need more sweets in my house these days!
Later we went shopping for a holiday dress for Avery for a couple special occasions she has coming up, the contenders:
Yeah she picked the pink …of course.
I had book club that night but decided to stay home since I was beyond tired and have parties the next two nights – made me sad not to go though!
Onto meal planning. I have no desire to cook these days, I really hope this passes soon!
