Wee-Kend Fun.......Its Really Real. For Real.

How do you determine what a good weekend was?

If it is Monday and you say it was a good weekend cause no one died, then you may have to rethink your weekends.  If Monday rolls around and you say to yourself, I changed too many shitty diapers then you may need to change your diet, or your kids depending on who is wearing the diapers.

My weekend, know how I am claiming that this past weekend was a success?

We put up Christmas Decorations, a Christmas Tree, and Ornaments and they are all still standing.  A 2yo that cant keep his hands off the tree managed to not pull it down.  A 4yo that loves to touch the ornaments and sleep with them all, didn't pull the tree down.  Two older brothers that want to wrestle around the room couldn't knock this tree down this weekend. Winner Winner.

Saturday, we went to the local tree farm. We decided that this year we would do the real tree thing.  Our first real tree since the kids have been born.  This was maybe the most awesome display of keeping it local that you can have. I mean buying your Christmas Tree from a tree farm that is 10 minutes from your house, doesn't get more local than that.  The kids loved this.  They got to run through the rows and rows of trees, we had smores but the fire pit and they got to see the guys, cut our tree, shakes our tree and then wrap our tree. To say they were excited was an understatement.  We got home, I cleaned the stand and C1 helped me bring it in. As soon as we put it in the stand, all you could hear was...

.....Can we decorate the tree? Over and Over and Over.

We saved the tree decorating until Saturday night when it was nice and dark. We had already set up the stuff outside and then we put the lights on and then it was time.

The C's went to work decorating with ornaments of all kinds. From Ugly to Nice, Old to New and the only ones that didn't stay on the tree....the ugly ones that T took off.

We also had some antic from Elfie this weekend. From sitting on top of the fridge to bringing some friends along and climbing his way up to the clock on the wall. I am wondering when he is going to get all crazy on us and have his wild parties like he did last year.

I have come to the realization that anytime we have tubs to move or get out of the storage room, I am going to hurt myself. I can go to the gym and lift hundreds of pounds and not be hurt, but lift some faxing tubs full of Christmas shit or clothes and I can move half my body for the next two days. Right now, its my right arm and right side of my chest. I cant flippin move it. Its like I'm paralyzed.

Rain came in yesterday and pretty much all day long we had some kind of wind and rain. Its has rained all day today and there is a chance of.......that's right, there is a chance of snow flurries tonight.

Kiss the Baby

We tried to get our tree over the weekend but because of the rain the tree farm was a lake. The farm we go to we get to cut it down ourselves and drag it to the car. Or at least thats what we let the older girls do last year. They loved being able to help out.
We got snow today.... I hate snow!
