Even while visiting Grandma, my morning pretty much starts the same: feeding this little guy…
I also made a big veggie omelet for Mom and I to split.
While it cooked the kids played.
It was a nice morning and a fabulous breakfast!
After breakfast, everyone had errands to run except me! I stayed home and finished the Christmas cards…
while Little Bean napped and Little Guy watched one of my all time favorite movies.
Once the cards were done (Oh! And if you are a Hallmark user like me, I found a 30% off promo code: SPECIAL30 – It saved me almost $10!) I headed over the Shutterfly to finish a photo book I’ve been working on.
This is my first photobook attempt. I can’t wait to see how it comes out!
Before everyone came back I made lunch for Little Guy and I munched on some veggies with hummus.
Then it was Party Time!
Little Guy played a classic game of "Don’t Touch the Ground" with a balloon…
…and had WAY too much fun with the party hats.
Of course we had pizza and I had 3 slices sans-crust.
They went to Little Bean. He was quite a fan!
I had a slice.
Plus the 2 bites Little Guy left on his plate. WHY do I do that? It’s a habit I need to stop.
After cake we all had fun opening presents, playing, and chatting. Someone had fun crawling…
…dancing with Dad….
…and standing with me.
Even though we were having a blast, it was time to hit the road.
Little Bean did great!
And Little Guy and I kept busy taking turns playing Angry Birds on the iPad.
Of course there was a car snack involved, but not for me. Little Guy asked if he could open the Sour Patch kids he got for "pre-Christmas."
I said yes and tried one. That’s right.. ONE! I know, I’m impressed too! ;)
When we got home the cat was so excited to see us she even greeted Little Bean!
The house was a mess while we unpacked our gifts.
Mom gave me a new silverware set and Little Guy helped me get organized.
By this time we were already late for dinner, so The husband fed the baby while I whipped something up.
Breakfast for dinner. YAY!
Those are waffles made out of my Quick Whole Grain Banana Pancake batter. One of our favorites.
Dad had his traditional…
and I stuck with just a simple can of soup. Honestly, I was still quite full from the pizza and cake.
After dinner we straightened up, got both kids a bath and sent them to bed almost in time for my new favorite Sunday show obsession: Once Upon a Time. It’s so clever!
Now? Well now I’m watching Iron Chef while snacking on these…
and enjoying a cup of tea.
With our pre-Christmas celebration on Saturday and my Niece’s birthday today, it was an awesome weekend. Now I’m trying to wrap my head around the week ahead. I have a recipe waiting to write-up for GreenLiteBites and 2 Laughing Cow posts to get done by Thursday, I’m behind on Babys1stYear posts, there are 3 BlogToLose chats scheduled this week AND FitBloggin’12 is in full planning mode with speaker applications rolling in and sponsor negotiations started.
Yikes. I better get to bed!
