Weekend before Christmas

So who's ready for  Christmas!? Our weekend was a lot of fun but a bit of running around and last minute stuff as well as our travels begin very soon (on the 27th). Friday started with a play date when we  met our friends, Dani, Wren and Raven for a little Indian food and a lunch time dance party.

Both girls took very long naps ( and maybe Mama also as she went our with some girlfriends the night before) and we spent our evening eating takeout, watching (part of) a christmas movie and wrapping a couple presents.

On Saturday, D had to go to a last minute meeting

(but got some love before), so the girls and I headed out to this birthday party for A's classmate. We headed to a birthday party for one of A’s classmates and the local indoor playground. Everyone had such a great time especially the little ones releasing all that pent up energy with lots of running around.  However, the birthday boy’s dad was not there. He (a young, non smoker) has been diagnosed with Stage 4 lung cancer and was at home resting. My heart went out to this awesome family who still chugged along celebrating their son’s birthday and I pray for health and peace for them. I must say though it affected me for the rest of the weekend L

These smiles melt my heart!

We had some friends and their kids over on Saturday night for a little play time, parang and Portuguese food. Amra, Sean and their kids will be in Trinidad around the same time we will be there so lots of fun to be had in a few days. Our other friends Will and Andrea also stopped by for dinner so a good time all around.


I'm not going to lie. These little ladies pose better than their mamas. #owningit.

A yule log for dessert does a good party make


Whup, whup!

On Sunday, we all slept in and then spent a pretty low key day baking, doing laundry, cleaning up and chilling.

I watched the Best Man’s Holiday. Maybe it was because of the birthday party and the family’s situation the night before but I bawled my eyes out thinking of the many families at this time of year who are dealing with illness and loss.

Anyways….. my kids got jingled!

And then we headed out with our friends Jenn and Alex to an adult caroling party.  It was pretty cool as there was a live band, an eclectic mix of people and some really cool music. 

Our kids hung out with their baby sitter and had their own pizza pajama party… Guess who had more fun?!

Lots to do this week including packing, last minute Christmas errands and a long awaited visit to Santa!
