Weekend Recap

On Friday Ellie stayed for a longer day at school so Summer and I went shopping.
 Summer was asking for a muffie as soon as we dropped Ellie at school. She loves the pumpkin muffies from Panera (I just bought a pan to make them at home). Since it was Friday I treated both of us to one.
We stopped by to wave to Santa and he was nice enough to give her a few things. She was so happy!
I gave Summer a lollipop in Hanna Anderson and she found a spot in the store window to hang out in. Five minutes later she was in the stroller passed out and still holding her pop. So cute and I was able to go into Lululemon and shop and try on clothes while she was sleeping.
Friday night we went to our local tree lighting. We ended the night with ice cream. Summer is telling Nick that she can't smile because she has ice cream in her mouth. Impossible to get all of us smiling at the same time!
Saturday my in laws took the girls for the entire afternoon and Nick and I went shopping. It was so nice to have time to do this together. I have been doing most of the shopping online (why do all of the packages have to come when my husband is at home??). I think we are done with the girls and I just have to get a few more things for family gifts. I really tried not to go overboard this year with playing Santa. I will write another post with their wishlists and mine, too! Nick and I also got a few more things for our yard. He has been wanting an inflatable for years and we finally got a Santa so he is happy. I picked out two reindeer with lights for our front yard. I am loving our street this year. Everyone has really stepped up with Christmas decorations and the girls love it! We were even able to get an early dinner just the two of us.
The girls are checking out our new Santa:
Saturday night we built our first fire. The girls snuggled on the couch and watched Elsa and Anna videos on You Tube (a special treat). We also put on the Polar Express. I went out to get marshmallows and we roasted them, too. It was a fun family night. 
This morning I went for a run, then we all went to a local Farm for a hayride and pictures with Santa. We also got our tree. I was practicing using my camera (I've been getting lessons) in manual mode and forgot to switch it to Auto for a family picture so it didn't turn out well at all since the sun was in front of us. The hayride was such a cute idea. It was decorated for the Holidays, we sang Christmas songs and they took us around the farm to a gazebo where Santa was waiting where we were able to take pictures with him.

Hope everyone had a great weekend!
