It has been a fun week (minus the awful illness that went through our family mid-week – I’m trying to focus on the positives!). First off, it was Jason’s and my 19th anniversary yesterday. I bought us tickets to see Mary Poppins Returns at Alamo Drafthouse for lunch. He likes Mary Poppins and I like the Drafthouse, so it was a good crossing point between our very different enjoyments. He said the movie was great. I said…eh, it had its moments. That’s about the best you were going to get from me, haha. But it was a fun date. Afterwards, we had some cookies and milk at home, and got the house ready for my siblings to all come over for a gift exchange since not everyone will be here on Christmas itself. The whole day was low-key and exactly what we needed right now, especially with everyone getting over illnesses.
There were also a lot of other busy-busy Christmas-related things this week: a candy-making party at my cousin’s house; a Christmas-cookie-making party at our house; watching Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer; fireside night at my dad’s house; and this afternoon I’m attending a Tran-Siberian Orchestra concert with Stephanie and her family.
I’m taking the few days off the blog until it’s time for end-of-year wrap-ups. The boys are off of school and we’re all about to start into our multi-Christmas party mode. I’ll likely still be on Instagram since this is about my favorite time of year, but the blog can hold its own for a bit. Merry Christmas, happy holidays, and all that jazz, everyone! See y’all soon!
