Weekend in Review (Holiday Edition)

 Friday night we had some friends from Seth's soccer team over for Roland's homemade Tom & Jerry's. I wasn't sure if it was going to turn into total chaos with 9 grown kids in the house, but everyone had a really great time.

 Saturday we had back to back sports in the morning. When Seth was recently asked to be on a basketball team I was a bit nervous for days like these, but it worked out really well and Seth loved every minute of it. Thank you to the double grandparents who came and supported Seth through both games on Saturday. He loves all the cheering in the stands.

 Saturday night we headed to SYR and went to Lights on the Lake. We haven't been since Leah was in diapers so she really enjoyed it. Seth kept us entertained in the back by singing to us.

On Sunday Roland took the kids skiing and our timid little Bean wanted to try the lift without Dad AND she was successful. I am so thrilled for her and she is so proud of herself.
This week is full of play dates, sports, Seth's concert and dinner out with friends. Bring on the festivities.

The Adventures of our Elf...Cody Charlton

 On Sunday morning the kids awoke to our elf being held hostage by some angry toy friends. It appears that they are angry by the fact that Cody brings the kids daily treats in their advent calendar so they are trying to get revenge on the poor little elf.
Sunday evening Roland decided that the elf was probably uncomfortable after being taped to the wall all day so they snuggled under the heated blanket.
 Monday morning Cody left his toy friends some treats, BUT then... 
 He toilet papered our Christmas tree.
I think our elf needs a TIME OUT.
Happy Monday and have a wonderful week.
