Christmas time is upon us and we are here for all of it.
On Friday, we borrowed an idea from @mel_larson, someone I follow on Instagram. They do Home Alone night where they order cheese pizza, drink Pepsi, and make ice cream sundaes, just like Kevin. It was so fun. We got our pizza (and garlic fingers) from Maker Pizza, and a large 2L bottle of pop. Q had never seen a pop bottle that was that big and he was shocked!
On Saturday morning we went to pick out our tree.
As I was taking this photo, E said "new backdrop?" for my phone, and he was right!
My Nana Do would have loved this gold tree.
E helped tie the tree to the car.
We did the last of the leaf bags when we got back and then I took Q to swimming. It was his last lesson and then it was cut short because of a pool fouling (ew).
Dave and I each got a workout in and he commented it was like we were at the gym.
Then we went to the Marlies hockey game. Our neighbour gives out free passes for Halloween so a bunch of us chose the same day to go and met up there.
We like popcorn.
And we went out for supper afterwards in Liberty Village.
We were lucky we could do a parents table and kids table.
We tried watching a movie and I could not stay awake unfortunately, but I think Dave liked it.
On Sunday we were at church for most of the day. Regular service, special service for our new minister (where E was participating), and a craft event (more on that below). But we did sneak in a visit to the post box to mail Q's letter to Santa.
And we were able to help Dave with the lights.
We brought our friends with us to church for the craft thing.
So nice to see the lights on the house.
I also went out for dinner with friends on Sunday night. We went Annette Food Market. That place is a gem! The food was delicious and so was the wine we chose. It is always nice to go out to actually catch up with friends.
