Another Friday night, another pizza night. It really is such a treat to look forward to our pizzas each week. E had several bubbles in his crust this week.
After we ate, we watched Christmas Chronicles 2.
On Saturday morning, I took E to get his flu shot.
Then we cleaned the entire house. It was our goal to get the Christmas decorations out so we needed to tidy up and dust/vacuum. Q hung up his sock by the fireplace.
After a few hours of cleaning and lunch, the boys and I joined our neighbours for a walk. Meanwhile Dave went for a run and did a few more things around the house.
It was a beautiful day.
We were gone for 3 hours! So you could say we were a bit tired when we got back. I made some noodles and potstickers for supper. We got the decorations up from downstairs and the boys put up the trees in their rooms.
On Sunday morning we started decorating. Q and E put the Christmas story booklets into our advent calendar.
We took a break from decorating to watch our church service.
E lit the first candle of Advent. We don't have an actual wreath, I just plan on adding a candle each week.
After lunch E went to play with the neighbours (outside) and I took Q to pick up my order at Staples (with a quick stop at Starbucks of course), and then we went to a playground. It was not in our neighbourhood but I had driven by before and it looked like something fun and new.
And what a surprise, we ran into one of Q's friends, who also does not live in this neighbourhood so it was a chance meeting for sure. They got to play together for awhile and I chatted with her parents.
We went home, the kids watched a bit of TV, and I did our meal plan and grocery order and then we got supper ready. We also watched one of our favourite holiday shows, Mr. Bean!
E selfie while I was upstairs with Q.
We watched The Mandalorian and then it was a pretty early night for us.
