Week 5 was kind of a wrap up week with the Christmas activities. The girls had their final visit with Santa at Russ' work.
Marissa chatted his ear off.
Emily refused to make eye contact.
We did however find the perfect Santa for Emily. Our local Moes was hosting Mickey and Minnie Mouse! As soon as I saw the flyer I knew we HAD to take her. She greeted both of them with hugs and posed for MANY pictures. She even went back to say goodbye after we finished eating.
After 3 years of her strong dislike for all things Santa it was so fun finding one she loved.
Remember Marissa winning the Christmas card contest? I received this earlier in the week. I think I will frame one and use it as a Christmas decoration. I am not even joking about that.
We had a date night. Our obligatory date night "usie" never was taken but Russ did snap a picture of me before we left.
Yes I am a dork. But when you rarely get out, a night out will do that to you. We went to Russ' company Christmas party which is always a fun filled night.
This past weekend was our annual holiday baking extravaganza. Yesterday I linked up for a Christmas treat and tacky sweater post. I kind of thought my "tacky" sweater was cute.
Here are a few things Bob was up to this week. He had a lot of fun this year, I am kind of going to miss him when he "leaves" tonight.
We also made ornaments but Marissa swore me to secrecy since hers is a present for her daddy :). That girl is so sweet, such a big heart. She lovingly wrapped her presents in shoe boxes tied up with anything she could find. I love that she wants to give and understands that you don't have to spend money to give someone a great present.
