Time flies when you’re having fun! We’ve had a busy week. I can’t believe it’s Friday already! Last week I was super busy with work, followed by a weekend in Mass, and a fun week of nightly shenanigans. Here’s a little of what we’ve been up to…
Friday: First Snow!
On Friday we had our first snowfall! It has snowed a couple times, but this was the first time it stuck, so Avery went running outside to play before school on Friday. He was so excited and every morning since has been ddisappointed when there isn’t any new snow.
I was super thrilled the snow had held off until now because I had just got snow boots for Avery the weekend before (Thanks Joayn!). But I was also a bad mommy and hadn’t got Avery snow pants yet this season, so I sent him to school with his from last year. They fit, but barely. So what did I do that weekend? I found him new snow pants!
Weekend: Visiting friends in Mass
Avery spent the weekend with his Dad and Grandma in Mass, so I took advantage and made a weekend of it, crashing at my friends Erin & Andrew’s new house. Steve came with me and we were put to work with a couple projects, did some Christmas shopping in NH (tax free!) and played some fun games Saturday night with yummy hot cider drinks in front of the fire. After a nice breakfast out Saturday morning and more helping with the house, we headed off to pick Avery up.
We had such a fun weekend, and it went by too fast. It’s nice to have those adults only weekends, especially since I can help Santa with his shopping without Avery seeing, but I was very happy to be home with this little guy Sunday night.
Monday: Tumble, Lowes, PIzza Putt
Monday night was a busy night! MiMi had a meeting at the house so we made ourselves scarce. Grampy got to see Avery in action at tumble class, then a quick stop at Lowes – these two had too much fun driving around!, dinner and games at Pizza Putt – a fun filled night for all! (Side note, we haven’t been to Great Gram and Gramps for a couple weeks cuz they had a cold and didn’t want to pass it on to Avery)
Tuesday: Girls Night/Santa Shopping
Tuesday I met up with Michele (Mommy of THREE – no idea how she does it!?), and we had dinner and did some shopping. We were so cute driving around our carts with our lists. Avery spent the night with Mimi and Grampy… and all went well until Avery used his pliers on Grampy’s lip… oops.
Wednesday: Avery and Mommy Time
Wednesday nights Mimi and Grampy go to Gram and Gramps (to watch Survivor, so it’s a late night for them and we stay home), so after a yummy spaghetti dinner, Avery and I played toys and did the nighttime routine. I would say it was a great night, until SOMEONE wouldn’t go to sleep. Seriously… still battling bedtime at 3 years old. I spent over an hour putting Avery back in his bed.
Thursday: Family Time
Last night we played and ate dinner with Mimi and Grampy. Avery had fish sticks for the first time in a while and loved them. Gotta put that on the menu more often. We tried again to make it a smooth bedtime but Avery was up many many times. I was busy in the office assembling thank you cards for Avery’s birthday (I know, I know, I’m months late – but I was waiting for the proofs from our photo shoot to send pics with the cards and they came over the weekend), so I kept busy in the 30 seconds between putting him back to bed over and over and over…
Friday: Pizza and a Movie
And today is Friday! We’re not headed to Boston this weekend, so we’re having our usual Pizza and a Movie night at the house. Ask Avery what he likes on his pizza… “Macaroni” (aka, pepperoni)
