'Twas the weekend before Christmas

And I…..
+ relaxed on Friday as A and I were still getting over our cold. We had takeout, watched movies and went for a drink by our neighbours (in our sweats)
+ treated myself to a mani/pedi on Saturday morning as my nails were all kinds of wrong
+  went C's figure skating exhibition to showcase the littles and all their hard work
+ got dressed up and went with D to a grown up party on Saturday. Every guest had to bring two ingredients and we were split into teams to create different drinks in a competition. Our team (or rather the team I cheated my way into) won with our naughty and nice creations--- heard they were divine. #toooldtomixdrinks #stuckwithwineandclubsoda
+ was so happy my brother and sister in law were able to babysit our kids. 
+ did some baking with my girls and nephew. Those were the softest, cakiest, messiest sugar cookies ever. 
+ snuggled with my nephew and taught him to answer "who's my favourite aunt?"
+ went to a holiday party complete with festive parang, yummy trini food and fun for the kids.

And just like that it turned to Monday and look what I found this morning?
Yeah, my kids are having cookies for breakfast but it's seriously less sweet than a muffin and it's four days before Christmas.

Happy Christmas week, friends! Really is the MOST wonderful time of the year! 

Linking up on this fine day with:

  1. Cookies for breakfast sounds just fine to me!! Merry Christmas week!

  2. I totally have the same conversations with my nieces and nephew - who is your favorite aunt?! LOL Happy Monday! xo, Biana -BlovedBoston

  3. Sounds like so much fun! I love the idea that you each had to bring two drink ingredients to your party.

  4. The grown up party sounds like a nice night out. Hope you have a wonderful Christmas this week!

  5. cookies for breakfast are TOTALLY fine the week before christmas, they have to get their little bodies ready for all of the sweets they are going to eat in the next few days, right! just preparation! ;) so cute!

    if you get the chance, please take the time to check out my blog! have a great Christmas! :)

    So, hi.

  6. What a fun little contest. I hear you on the to old to mix drinks part. Now days I just stick with beer, lol. I like to feel alive the next day and not like I may die.

  7. Love that you sneaked in a mani/pedi for yourself and a party with a D on top of all the time with the kiddos. I swear, your weekends are the best example of managing time for as a Mommy and time as an adult

  8. Mixed drinks- the craziest I get is champs and OJ ;) Cookies for breakfast are definitely appropriate this time of year!
