we are getting ready for a really fun weekend, but first i want to remember what we did last weekend! i couldn’t even remember the last time i had been to my parents’ house and since the office was closed for moving i took the opportunity to visit high point. we left right after school on friday. we helped decorate the tree, ate lots of treats, saw Grandmommy, and visited old salem! mom and dad spoiled as….. as usual.
it was fun to take the kids to old salem, i always liked going and i had been wanting to take them at christmas time. we had a great time. mom and dad treated us to a wonderful lunch at the tavern and we loaded up on treats at the bakery. my kids ask A LOT of questions. they loved running in the town square.
it was special to stop by the college and academy where grandmommy attended in the 1930s (and jean in 1996 🙂
thanks mom and dad, we love you!
I’m working on a “year in review” post but in the meantime, here are some Holiday photos. Every year I find myself thinking about how I can plan, organize, and do more, but I think that’s just the nature of being a mom at Christmas time! December included track out for Jackson, multiple illnesses for almost all of us, Play dates, advent, trips to the library, museum visits, baking, Christmas movies, crafting, too much screen time, slow mornings, book reading, Christmas music, and way too many treats! We have been merry and yes, tired and short on patience at times, but I’m so thankful for Jesus and family and Christmas!
Right now, I get to sit on the couch with my boy, smell the Christmas tree, watch a Christmas movie and share Christmas cookies! It’s officially track out! I’m so excited for extra time with Jackson and during the best time of the year!
