Weekend Recap

Friday was a busy day for me and I fought traffic to pick up both boys before 6:00, but I made it.  It was so nice to come home to a beautiful Indian meal homemade by Dave.  He made a lamb curry, and a vegetable curry, and we had rice and naan on the side.  It was hit with everyone.

Then we put Q to bed and relaxed on the couch with wine and popcorn and the Sound of Music. 

After E went to bed, Dave and I watched a couple of episodes of Ozark and stayed up probably too late. 

The next morning we went up to Bloor West Village for their 2nd annual Santa in the Village festival.  We had some free hot chocolate, cookie decorating, a glimpse of Santa, some nice music, and some gifts (for ourselves).

"Get these antlers off of me!"

"Fine, I'll wear them."

"But I don't want to walk around with them on."

"But now that I have a cookie, I'm fine."

Then Dave and E went home to get the outdoor decorations out, and Q and I did some errands.   E helped himself to some apple sauce as part of his lunch.  I did feed him most of it otherwise it would have been a lot messier.

After Q's nap and the rest of The Sound of Music, we headed downtown to see the Bay windows and lights.

The tree at Jane and Bloor.  This started the game of "spot the Christmas tree".

Magical windows at The Bay

This was my favourite one

Then we went into the Eaton's Centre to see the tree.  E says he likes the twinkle lights.

Then back outside to see what was going on at City Hall.  This was the night for the Calvalcade of Lights and there were a lot of people.  We are hoping to come back another night and go skating when it's less crowded.

We went over to Jack Astors at Yonge-Dundas Square for supper.  

E tried calamari for the first time and ate it right up.

Santa has a workshop in the back of the Eaton's Centre, so we stopped for some photos.

A cute little church back there too

We did not stay for the actual lighting of the City Hall Christmas Tree, since we would have had to wait a little while. It ended up being a good call because it started raining just as we got home.  It was early to bed for us after a full day!

At church on Sunday, E coloured in a card for the Out of the Cold bag lunches. 

I did a few errands, including some Christmas gifts, and then I came home and we did some decorating.  Complete with egg nog of course!

Putting the bible verses in each day of our advent calendar.

We had an hour of daylight left when Q woke up so we went down to the park for a little bit.  

It was a busy but heart full kind of weekend, and Christmas is here!
