Hello! Happy Monday! Hope you had a great weekend! We sure did but busy! Saturday we went to Ariel's swimming lesson than rushed to the Santa Parade. We parked very far and walked a long way, thank goodness for a sit and stand stroller (like a double but better for older kids) We were at the end of the parade route but it was so much less crowded so that was nice. Than we walked to the Forks (which is where the two rivers meet and a tourist location in our downtown) and watched fireworks! One good thing about it getting dark so much earlier is that fireworks are at a good time of 7:30 for little kids! Than the long walk back to the car! One good thing about the long walk is that there was no traffic once we got the car. We heard a lot of horror stories of friends who took the bus (standing out with 3 kids waiting for the bus just to have it drive by as it's full!) and other such stories so I am glad that we couldn't go to the start of the parade route!
Today I have a baby card to share. I have made a lot more baby cards lately but have even more that need to be made! I also have a lot of cards that I need to catch up on the share!
It's a very simple card, I don't know why but it seems that working with PTI stamps bring out the CAS girl in me! Although I really like it since babies are so new and fresh! I am currently waiting for a really good friend to have her baby, she is a few days overdue. She doesn't know what she is having, and she has two boys already!
Yesterday we spent the day at my parents. Chad had an open house basically the street over from their house and we needed them to babysit the kids that evening since we had Chad's Christmas party for work! My parents wanted to buy Ariel skates and a helmet as part of her birthday present so my dad, Ariel and I went shopping for that. While shopping we saw that they had really small skates that would fit Carter so my dad bought that and a helmet for him. And it's a good thing we did. When we got home I asked him if he wanted to try them on since you play hockey with them. Carter sits right in my lap and doesn't wiggle or make a noise as I put them on. The guy at the store told us to let him walk around the house on the carpet in them so he learns not to walk bow legged like a deer. I put the skates and helmet on and he stands right up and starts to walk like it's nothing! He fell a bit but quickly got the hang of it and walked around the house for a while. I went to take them off and he freaked out! Cried hockey for a while. This morning the first thing he does is bring me the hockey skates and tells me hockey! I have since hidden them as I don't need any more holes in my walls! I really see myself becoming a hockey mom, he is only 2 years old and loves it so much already? Ariel on the other hand is total opposite and told me that she is going to dance on ice! I think this week we will be taking the kids skating! I'll make sure to share some photos!
