Saturday was relaxing and I didn't get a thing done! I took Dyl to a birthday party and Zoe and I went shopping for some shoes for her. Poor thing, we just bought her some new shoes, but she kept saying they were hurting so I took her to Stride Rite and when they measured her foot we discovered that she had grown 2 sizes in shoes. Yes, I think that makes me bad mommy of the month. Thankfully a friend of mine had given me some of her daughters shoes which are the right size and now new shoes are on my to do list along with pants that go past her ankles and shirts that cover her belly! After we picked Dylan up we headed home and did some quick cleaning so we could buy the tree on Sunday.
Finally...Oh Christmas Tree, Oh Christmas Tree...Sunday was the big day! It started with church where Dylan had to practice his musical for next weekend. They practiced through Sunday School and the second service so we didn't get out of church until after noon. Usually we attend the early service and are home by 10:30 so this kind of threw our day off. After church we headed to a new Mexican restaurant that had the best fried ice cream that I have ever had! We did try some burritos, tacos, and chips too, but the fried ice cream takes the cake. Then it was off to Landis Tree Farm. This is where we have gotten our tree for many years, at least since Dylan was 1. Every year they take your picture and then when you go back the following year you can find your picture and take it home. I'll have to see if I can scan in some our pictures from the past cause it is neat to watch the kids grow. They also have hot cocoa and cookies, which you can see from the pix are the kids favorites. I usually have them take our picture with the tree on our camera, but forgot so you'll have to wait for the tree picture when it's all decorated.
Such a busy weekend, but filled with good things!
