Holiday Weekend

IMG_8780

I started off the weekend feeling sick. I was having trouble working so I went home and went right to sleep. I slept for like 3 hours and then stayed in bed until Heath came home and got me up. I was hungry and half asleep and we ran to Costco for a big cart full of stuff and some food. Then we ran around getting the kids and roommates and Hanukkah party supplies . Then we went to Jon and Briana’s house for a party.

They had made all sorts of great Hanukkah food and we had a great meal with friends. Jeremy was the only Jewish one but fortunately he knew how it all goes and showed us.

After celebrating the kids played dress up and we played board games. I was feeling pretty beat and the kids were tired so we headed out first and got to bed.

I had a good night of sleep. Saturday morning the girls helped me make biscuits.

Heath and Shin went shopping and the girls and I got the house all cleaned up and they laid down for early naps. Then we went to Rachel and Alex’s house for Christmas.

We loaded up a giant box of great stuff and headed to the next Christmas. Heath and Shin tried a little more shopping on the way but didn’t find what they wanted.

We got to Nana K’s house just in time to help get dinner ready.

In the morning the girls made gingerbread cookies.

We hung out for another hour or so and I had another plate of Mexican and dessert and then we headed home. We took Peanut home and picked up some stuff we left at my mom’s and then went home. We put the girls right to bed and then Heath and I wrapped presents for an hour before going to bed ourselves.
