At 6:45 tonight, Isla announced, “I ready to go to bed!” and trotted back to her room. Poor thing- we have had a really busy weekend. So both kids were in bed, asleep by 7:45. Whaaaat?
Jack had a half day on Friday. I picked him up from school and we headed straight downtown to see Santa at Neiman’s. I refuse to fight the Northpark crowds to see Santa (and I’ve heard he’s pretty grouchy anyway), and the Neiman’s set up is so great. No lines and the photographer is REALLY good at getting the kids to smile.
On Friday night we met the Wallaces and the Hartgroves for dinner at La Calle Doce and then took the kids to look at Christmas lights. My fave is this house on Southwestern (between Hillcrest & Preston):
Cuties!! They had so much fun:
On Saturday night my parents watched the kids so we could go to Brian’s firm’s Christmas party. I even managed to sneak in a Drybar appointment (at the mall- not so smart) AND get my nails done beforehand. ALSO- I won a Visa gift card at the party and we ended the evening with Cards Against Humanity. Sooooo… kind of the perfect day.
And finally, we spent pretty much all day at my parents’ house today for an early friend/family Christmas celebration. Totally did not intend to hang out there until 5:00, but it was such a fun day that we just stayed… and stayed…
So all in all a great weekend! I’m pretty excited about this week. With Jack in school 5 days, he and Isla don’t get a ton of time to play together. I love that they’ll have the next 2 weeks to hang out and just play without school or activities. (I may change my tune in a few days when they’re screaming at each other and fighting over toys.)
Off to enjoy my super quiet house! Night!
