1. Clara was sick... again! She spent the latter part of the week with a mysterious symptom-less fever. Well, unless you count being really pitiful as a symptom. It was nice to get to spend some alone time with her, but it was a bummer that she felt so crummy (and we had to miss work).
I did my best to pretend I was a legit SAHM by doing the following:
(1) wearing workout attire even though I wasn't working out
(2) going to Target (wherein my child REFUSED A FREE COOKIE SAMPLE... obviously sick)
(3) watching Gilmore Girls on Netflix during nap time
Fortunately she started feeling better on Friday, but was still pretty clingy throughout the weekend :o/
2. Sugar Land Farmers' market - Yes, Sugar Land has its very own farmers' market, and even though it is pretty small (and surprisingly lacking in actual produce?), it's not a bad way to spend a Saturday morning. We hit it up this weekend with the Olivers, and the highlights were (a) the stand selling kettle corn, and (b) the fire truck on display.
You can tell by our attire that we weren't exactly planning for a photo opp, but we ran into a friend and couldn't pass up a rare picture of all 8 of us!
She was not drunk, as this picture would suggest.
Firemen featured in calendars often don't wear shirts. My fireman opted not to wear his pants.
Not sure why, but leaning to one side or the other always results in lots of giggling. As does watching mommy and daddy dance.
We're doing our part to keep Amazon in business and the twins are loving it!
Just watching some Mickey Mouse Clubhouse with Davis- Avery was busy practicing her walking skills and avoiding her destructive cousins/brother.
4. Pecan Grove Christmas lights - There's a neighborhood in the area that goes all out with Christmas decorations every year and we have an annual tradition of driving around to check them out. (I even devoted a whole blog post to it a few years ago!) This year was no exception, and although there was an increase in whining from the crowd in the backseat, there was also an increase in cuteness thanks to repeated "Ho Ho!" coming from the backseat whenever we spotted an inflatable Santa.
5. Cookie exchange - Two of my friends and I have been hosting an annual Christmas cookie exchange since 2010. It is always a blast, and most importantly, it is super low maintenance. I always fail to take pictures, for some reason, but all you need to know is that there were about 30 people there and each of those people brought 3 dozen cookies to share. So, basically an event for wannabe diabetics.
Aren't we festive?
So there's my list of five. Feel free to share your own!
