Ok so I know I haven’t been around for a while. Life happens…
This past weekend had been pretty busy for me. Had some shopping to do and it had to be done before my MIL came to pick us up for dinner to celebrate our son’s birthday on Saturday. So I was exhausted by the time I got home and fell into bed after wrapping the gifts I needed to wrap for the potluck on Sunday. I know it is pretty early to do Christmas stuff already but it was the only time all of us (my friends and I) could get together before the holidays.
We did a Secret Santa for the adults and one for the kids. Who knew finding a gift would be so hard. I don’t usually have to shop for young children as mine is almost a teenager and the boy my son got has specific likes. Who knew it would be so hard to find something dinosaur related that was age appropriate for a 2 year old and was under $20. We did manage to find an awesome felt dinosaur kit, which my friend’s son absolutely loved.
My son and I spent almost 3 hours Saturday at the mall looking for 2 gifts after spending 2 and a half hours watching Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows pt 1. He wanted to see it for his birthday gift. Then dinner at 6pm with my MIL made for a busy busy day.
Sunday we got picked up by my friend and her two boys. My son wedged himself in between the two carseats in the backseat and didn’t look very comfortable. I should have snapped a picture *lol* It was an hour drive out to our friends house who was hosting the potluck. There were 6 adults and 9 children running around the house causing havoc. It was a lot of fun though. We managed to get all the children wrangled together for turkey lunch and then gifts were opened and yummy desserts served.
I was very proud of my son for being very well behaved. Not that he isn’t normally but he does have a tendency to complain after so long but he didn’t make a complaint at all. He kept an eye on all the little kids making sure they weren’t getting into trouble and he wedged himself back in between the carseats on the way home without a complaint as well. :)
I haven’t been feeling well the last few days. I have been in a mood and so exhausted it isn’t funny. I have pretty much come home from work and passed out. Have been sleeping quite a lot so I just haven’t had a chance to come on and post. So my apologies.
I did want to share a pic of the ornaments I made for each of my friends. I love crafting and haven’t done it in a while so I got the bug. I usually make clay ornaments out of salt dough but I didn’t have the time or the materials I needed to do those so I went with something else instead. I think they turned out pretty well. I am proud of them. Hubby actually gave them a thumbs up and he usually hates my homemade stuff. *lol*
Well I think I am going to head to bed and see if I can get some sleep. I hope to feel better tomorrow. I have just been in such a funky mood lately. Can’t seem to shake it :(
Happy Thanksgiving to all of my American friends. Hope your turkey was delicious. Hope you survive Black Friday and get some great deals. <3
