Weekend Recap

Another busy weekend in the books.  On Friday night I picked up both boys and we went to movie night in the gym at E's school. They were showing Incredibles 2, which we have seen before, and serving pizza and popcorn.  They brought their shark sleeping bags and settled in.  I sat along the side in my camping chair.  Q did so well, he sat and watched the entire movie and it was well past his bedtime. 

My friend and I had brought the same salad to eat for our own dinners.  Great minds think alike!

Meanwhile Dave was at the Raptors game.

I was up bright and early for barre on Saturday morning.  It was such a good workout with lots of '90s tunes to keep us singing along.

After I got home, I took the boys up to the Bloor West Village Christmas festival.  We got some hot chocolate and participated in the ornament making and cookie decorating.  Then it started raining so we scurried home (doing a little Christmas shopping on the way).

Dave was cleaning up the leaves when we got home before they got too wet.

Then he worked on the shelves he is making for the living room.

Q had a nap, E watched some of Indiana Jones, and I went to the grocery store.   When Q got up, we headed downtown.

It was our plan to see the windows at the Bay, walk through the mall, eat supper at Jack Astor's and then go back to City Hall for their cavalcade of lights - the lighting of their tree and live music.  However we never made it back there, just had dinner and went home.  We were not mad about it.

The soldiers from FAO Schwartz (I think).

We went inside to check out the FAO Schwartz pop up shop.

And then walked into the Eaton Centre.  I love their decorations. 

Dinner at Jack Astors.  We went here last year and it was a success again this year.  Plus we had a reservation this time so no wait.

Making friends with the table next door.

On Sunday, we all went to church.  E did the liturgy, and then sang with the junior choir, and I was the lay reader. 

Dave and I headed out to Canadian Tire and Home Depot for some outdoor Christmas lights, and I did some wrapping.   We don't have any eggnog yet but an Irish coffee is a good substitute. 

To cap off our weekend we met a bunch of our neighbours at the Marlies game.  One of our new neighbours was giving out ticket vouchers for Halloween so we decided to pick a day when a few of us could go together.  Although I don't think I watched a lot of the game, it was really fun and the kids enjoyed themselves!! 

Some fun in Marlies Alley before heading to our seats.

We ordered a pizza on the way home and ate that quickly before tucking the boys in bed.
