Saturday was a busy day for us. Leslie and I went to Trims and Whims. Its kinda like a craft show all about Christmas. We where kid free. I dont think I've ever been without kids. I have to say, I kinda missed them. We met up with my sister and mom and had lunch in their tea room. The food is always so yummy. Teachers work it so it was nice to see some of Daltons teachers from years ago. We got a few Christmas presents and got into the Christmas spirit. I think I just might get the tree out.
Brrrr, it was cold. That night we headed to our lighting up out town. They close down the streets and people gather to watch our little town turn into a city of lights. The kids alway have a great time. They sale hot cocoa, popcorn, all those things that light up for the kids and the shops along main street are open.

Its a nice time to see people that you haven't seen in a while. We meet up with friends to watch the lighting and then headed back to our house for dinner and chatting. The kids played and we got to solve the worlds problems, what could be better?
Sunday has been a lazy day for us. I cant remember the last time we have just been plain lazy, and man did it feel good. We watched The Polar Express and took naps, great day. We are headed out to catch a movie tonight, Madagascar. I figured we might as well do something, we wont be able to go to bed until midnight. I hope everyone has a great week.

Sounds like you and Leslie got into the Christmas cheer this weekend. How fun! I bet that light up your town event was just freezing. It has been so cold even during the daytime. Glad to hear you could relax and warm up on Sunday!
