Weekend Recap

Why do weekends go by so fast?!


It was my Christmas party and I took NO photos! Ahhh. We did a locked/escape room (and got out!) then had supper – we were home at 11pm and had a great time!


We spent an hour in the morning making Christmas ornaments which went really well considering we had a one year old helping 😉 Both girls really like crafts right now so I am taking advantage!


Afterwards we went to see Santa at the mall, I had no hopes with Chloe and was right on the money – she lost it.

Two years in a row 😉

My Mom and I went to a market in the afternoon and I found quite a few things!

Chloe in her new shirt – which was made for her 😉

We did not do rest the much of the day – watched Christmas cartoons and relaxed 🙂


It was a really foggy morning so we waited for it to clear before running but at 9:30am we gave up and went out, Turns out we should have done treadmill runs – it was darn cold, the girls were grumpy and nobody had a fun 18km! I was too cold to take a photo even! Luckily all our runs now are over 20km which means the treadmill OR we find sitters for the girls.

We came home, warmed up, dd another craft while Chloe napped, cleaned and then went skating.

It was Avery’s first time on real skates and Chloe’s first time out on the boot skates Avery used to wear. Both girls did great! Avery was skating on her own after 15 minutes and said she wants to go back tomorrow…

And now back to another week!

    I need to get Liam out on the skates again, he didn't have much luck being able to stand up last year haha.

    Offer still stands to take the girls for you 🙂

    I have yet to go to any of our markets, terrible right? One day I will make it!

      I was tempted to get a skate aid that you can push but not sure Avery would like it, she did not want to even hold my hands near the end.
      I might take you up on it in the new year! On cold days we will do treadmills but when it is nice out 30km is better outside 😉

    I love all the things you found at the Christmas market. LOL Chloe's shirt… Abel has PJs that say "on the nice list" and J & I are like, Hmmm – Not sure that's accurate! 😉
    So neat that you can skate outside with the kids!

    The girls out skating is so so cute and that santa photo is hilarious! Olivia slept through her santa photo today but I have a feeling next year will be a whole different ball game! haha
