Weekend Recap

First, my sister came home Thursday night so the girls and I stopped in to see her Friday morning. It's so nice to have her home for the Holidays. We haven't seen her in 6 months and won't again for a while, but I don't want to think about that... Friday evening we went back to my parents to decorate their tree and have dinner. We do this every year and each time it takes less time with all the kids helping.

My Dad helping Summer hang some ornaments. She is proud of herself!

Saturday morning I tried my first hot yoga class with my sister and sister in law. It was great! I got a great deal with Groupon for a month of unlimited classes. I plan to go a few times a week. Lately my body just hurts and I don't feel as flexible. I think the yoga will really help. Then, I did a few errands and in the afternoon we had my nephew's first birthday party.

The girls looked pretty in white!

Sunday morning I felt motivated and went for a run. A 1.8 mile loop around my neighborhood with a big uphill at the start. It was tough. I stayed inside the rest of the day. It wasn't planned, but Ellie was going out in the afternoon and Summer seemed tired so I tried napping her three times before 3:00 to no avail. She finally went to sleep after Ellie left for the Nutcracker. It was her first time going and it was a special day! My brother and I gave our parents tickets along with Ellie and her two cousins for Christmas. Everyone was dressed up. Ellie wore a dress we bought at Carter's, which I love. I wish we bought it in more colors! I snapped a few pictures in front of our tree.

While Ellie was out we hosted my brother and his wife and two other kids and my sister and her fiance for dinner. It was just a casual dinner, but as we were setting the table I realized we are short on our glasses. I have to get to Crate and Barrel to restock. We ordered Indian take out- my first time trying it and it was better than expected. It was fun just talking and laughing around the table for a couple of hours. 

Here is a picture of our table with our tree in the background.

We really don't have any plans until Christmas Eve this week. Lots of wrapping to do, a play date with friends this afternoon, and just enjoying the Holiday. I will be back later with a house tour of our Holiday decorations!
