My brother-in-law was in town this weekend. Luckily I had the day off on Friday. Before taking Baby Fox to preschool, we had to decorate the cake for BIL's birthday!
Everyone eats oatmeal and frosts cakes during breakfast right? Yep I used canned frosting and boxed cake, it was delicious, why fix something that's not broke?
Baby Fox really wanted to put sprinkles on the cake
He takes his decorating serious
After taking Baby Fox to preschool, and doing Mini Fox's hair in a cute french braid. Okay it wasn't that cute, but I did it, and I am so excited for all the hair styles to come when her hair is a little thicker and longer.
And then doing the "someone is coming over, need to quickly do a 10 minute clean job when it really should be an hour worth of work" cleaning job, we were off to the airport. Everything went perfect, and we were back at home in no time.
Yep he's that tall, he's 13 inches taller than me. I could barely get us all in the picture, haha.
We ate some lunch and then went to pick up Baby Fox from preschool
After nap time while we were waiting for Mr. to get home, Baby Fox colored and Mini Fox just wants to be where Baby Fox is.
Mr. got home and what was the first place BIL wanted to eat at? In and Out of course.
Friday night we laid low and watched Fight Club, have you seen it? I didn't really want to watch it, but Mr. said I would like it and you know what? I was pleasantly surprised. Go watch it if you haven't yet.
Saturday I took Baby Fox to get his hair cut, actually we went Friday after school, but the wait was 40 minutes, no thank you!
|He acts like she's hurting him, but he just kept leaning away from her...|
|The hair trimmers are tickling him|
Then we hit up this home decor store that is basically the size of Costco and it sells everything whole sale. You have to have a sellers license to get in. A friend has one, so she let us borrow it, yay! We did some major Christmas shopping. She had told us that the Christmas stuff goes fast, and that after Thanksgiving most of it would probably be gone. I usually don't like Christmas before Thanksgiving, but well, when you really want an awesome Christmas tree, you gotta do what you gotta do...
|The dislplay we're sort of copying for our tree...it looks really overwhelming in this picture, but in person it wasn't bad.|
Looking at some decorations.
Okay are you ready for the next picture? It's a picture of the tree we bought...it looks WAY bigger outside of that warehouse...crazy how small something looks in a big warehouse!
But it fit in my Mom's SUV, phew, I was worried!
Just us girls with some decorations
Baby Fox could hardly contain his excitment.
|Baby Fox trying to help, but that's the last piece Baby Fox, not quite yet!|
We really stepped up our game, our previous tree was 6 feet tall, this one is 10...perhaps we got a little carried away?
Now to the decorating...we're still looking for the "garland" I put it in quotes because it's ribbon, but we couldn't find the specific one we wanted at the store, so we're trying to find it else where.
After naptime we hit up our favorite Mexican place, yum! Then Mr. and BIL headed to a movie from dinner.
|I have no idea who that lady in the back is|
Sunday was pretty low key, we started things right with a quiche. Yum!
It needed to cool a bit, and Mr. really wanted it, Baby Fox was holding him back.
We decided to go with it and started decorating the house...my house is full on crazy right now, decorations everywhere! This was just the beginning. I keep telling myself, it gets worse before it gets better, right?
Baby Fox helped put up Christmas lights outside. He could no contain his laughter, he thought it was just the best time.
Mini Fox wore this cute little number all day. Mr. dressed her.
Kissing her little doggy
Before naptime everyone went swimming. Don't worry they just went in the spa, too cold for the pool (it was about 60°).
Mini Fox loved it!
I didn't take any picture, but I made potroast for dinner, and my parents came over. It was a great way to end the weekend. Until next time BIL!
and just cause they are cute.
Hope you had a great weekend! Hopefully most of you have the week off. I'm taking Wednesday off, and REALLY want to take tomorrow off, but don't really have a good reason to...so I guess I'll go to work. Boo.
