So . . . this week has gone fast.
Monday Travis was off so it was like a continuation of the weekend. We chilled at home all snug as a bug in a rug.
Tuesday morning Tyrion and I were off on a shopping extravaganza with my friend Sara. I pretty much completed all my Christmas shopping and it feels soooooo good to have it done! Anything I couldn’t find while shopping I ordered on Amazon after I got home. I’ll be getting a few packages in the mail throughout the next week and that’s that!
Since Wednesday evening we made a date to bring my grandma and her husband dinner and hang out I put everything together Tuesday night. Wednesday was going to be busy and I simply wouldn’t have had time to throw it together the same day. I made my favorite lasagna. Let me tell you, it’s a little more work than normal, but it is hands down the best I have ever made. I always get complements whenever I bring that dish.
Wednesday Travis was off again and and it was Christmas photo time! I know, we are super late this year. Thankfully the place we got our photos done, Tot Shots, also does a photo package with Christmas cards included and they should call me today or tomorrow and let me know they are in. Not too bad for last minute .
They were super good at getting Tyrion to smile. He can be such a stinker and tries his hardest not to smile when strangers take his photo. He didn’t stand a chance this time though. This lady was well versed with kids and had Tyrion smiling the whole time.
I can’t believe how grown up he is looking. Gosh time flies!
I would hands down recommend Tot Shots to anyone in the Spokane area. Super easy to work with and reasonably priced.
Our session went quickly and within an hour we were out the door and off to grab the food and take it to Grandmas house.
My grandma Judy lives about an hour north and thankfully Tyrion slept the whole way there. We arrived about 3pm and hung out until about 6. We don’t make it out to see her often enough, since it is a bit of a drive, but we had a great time and will see her and her husband again in one short week for Christmas at my parents!
Today is laundry and list day. I’m cleaning and doing laundry, and in-between that I’m trying to figure out my baking schedule over the next few days. Travis has a work potluck on Monday, I am making cookie platters for a few of his coworkers and some neighbors, and I can’t forget everything I’m bringing for Christmas.
So far it’s –
- Flame Crafted Ham from Fred Meyer (Easy peasy)
- Thumbprint cookies
- Crescent apple tarts
- Broccoli salad
Can’t wait for our Christmas feast. We are also having prime rib and roasted leg of lamb! All that, along with lots of other yummy salads, stuffing, and desserts.
As far as the pregnancy front goes, I’m doing great. Still only at a three pound weight gain at 12.5 weeks. And with all the holiday goodies I’m okay with that. I’ll jump on board the healthy train come January, but for now I’ll be enjoying a little extra sugar and all things nice since it is the season for it right?!
I’m off to load the washer. Have a great Thursday!!!! One week from Christmas y’all!!! Are you ready?!
