So after I was surprised to learn that I was getting off work early, I made the trek home and let the kids know that we would be putting the Christmas tree up. The Friday night after Thanksgiving is when we put up the tree and we have gotten more and more into letting the kids do it.
Well before the kids could start grabbing the ornaments, T and I had to take each and every light off of the PRE-lit tree. That was not fun. Well we finally for them off and we finished the tree Saturday night. Lights on...Check. Ornaments on....Check. C4 grabbing almost every ornament off the bottom of the tree...Check.
We also got a visit Friday night from our newest family member. The ELF ON THE SHELF arrived at our front door. The kids named him Elfie. And Starting Friday night Elfie made his way around the house. Breaking out of his box, to sleeping his first night atop the front door and then into some of the kids toys and then making his way to the Christmas tree. This morning he had planted himself by the front windows so he could watch over the kids as they do their schoolwork. Elfie sure does know how to get around and I will give you updates on him from time to time.
Saturday the weather was decent enough for all of us to make a trip to Grant Park in Atlanta. For those of you that know MckMama, the whole family was down in Atlanta for the Thanksgiving break and she had a photo shoot. Well T, I and the kids didn't take part in that but we did spend a lot of time with MckDaddy and their kids playing at the park. The kids had so much fun playing together. They ate snacks, climbed trees, played tag, and they just really had a great time. It was a good Saturday to talk to a friend and to see how much the family had changed and grown since last year when they were here. We then went out to eat in Little 5 Points, which is a "Well Lit, Well Populated" area in downtown Atlanta with another couple Raechel and Ryan and their 2 kids. Sorry the well lit and well populated area was a inside joke. It was funny for this bbq place we went to to see us (6 parents and 11 children) walk in. The kids ate, laughed, played and had a fun time with each other. I asked the C's if they had fun playing with their new friends and they all said yes and C3 even gave me this piece of info "They didn't use naughty words". I thought that was to cute. So to Big Mac, Nuggey, Small Fry, Stellan and Flurry, you kids were so polite and fun to be around and thanks for playing with the C's and they look forward to playing again soon.
So thanks again to MckDaddy and the kids for making time to meet us at the park to have a fun filled afternoon. The C's enjoyed it and so did T and I. Hope to see you again next year.
So on to Sunday. Know what happened? Well besides the kids all being a little under the weather and us finally packing up the rest of the summer clothes and T getting her Ebay on......THE FALCONS BEAT THE PACKERS!!!! Yeah baby, 9-2 and 6-0 in the Dome. I love my Falcon football. So while T was busy making mega money on Ebay, I was busy cheering on the Dirty Birds. I did manage to do some laundry while the game was on.
The picks were 1-1 this past weekend since Bama....well they LOST, to put it politely.
It is going to be a good week. Watch out for posts about Elfie. You just never know what the crazy Elf is going to do next.
