This weekend went by in a flash!
Our original plan was to stay home and work on the kids attitudes (they have been having a few issues lately) but miraculously they made a quick adjustment, which meant we got to go have some fun:)
I was SO glad they did because this was the first year we were able to go to our small town's Christmas celebration!
There were carriage rides, crafts, lunch, cupcakes and all the kids got 3 gifts each!!
It was amazing to see what the community club puts on for the town kids... I have said it before and I will say it again, I LOVE my small town!! The people are amazing and I am happy to belong here:)
They also had over a dozen bikes that they raffled off. Each kid was given a ticket and they could put it in for which ever bike they wanted. We didn't expect to win anything, but we stuck around until the announcements and Baby C won!!!! He was SO excited:) Lucky Boy.
After that was over we headed to a local tree farm with some friends to get Christmas trees.
I was pretty spent from the day, so I let Daddy and the kids pick a tree while I took pictures and nursed the baby. They did a really good job!
We spent the rest of the evening having dinner with our friends, so we didn't have time to set up or decorate the tree. We got the tree up Sunday morning but had lots of chores to get done, so the kids waited until the sun was down to decorate!
They sat patiently while Daddy and I put the lights on and then got busy putting on the ornaments. Luckily there was only one ornament that they broke and it wasn't a special one:)
