I can't believe Christmas is this week. THIS week!!! How is that even possible? And no, I'm not ready.
But enough of that. It's Monday and that calls for a weekend recap. I took Friday off and it was glorious! I absolutely loved spending the entire day with my little man. We went to Target. We visited his old nanny. We played. We snuggled. It was awesome. As a full time working mom, days like that mean the absolute world to me and I cherish every second. I love this little guy more than I could have ever imagined.
Saturday we spent the morning playing together. I got my run in while Camden took his morning nap. After that we just hung out and played and got things together to head out for the rest of the weekend. Our first stop Saturday was my parents' house. We all just hung out and played for a couple hours before dinner. After dinner, we headed to the North Hornell Fire Department to see Santa and Elmo and a bunch of other characters. I have got to say - I was IMPRESSED with Camden. He absolutely LOVED Cookie Monster and Mickey - he even wanted them to hold him. I mean, who is this kid?!?! He even sat on Santa's lap....we didn't get any smiles out of him but there was also no tears so that's a win in my books. After that, we headed to my sister's house to watch the parade go by. The fire trucks were LOUD but Camden didn't seem to mind. In fact, he loved watching the parade and seeing all the fire trucks with their lights and their sirens. After that, I nursed him and we headed back to my parents for the night. Sunday Camden slept in until 7:20!! We got up and headed out to breakfast with the family. After breakfast, we headed to Matt's family's annual cookie bake. My mom, sister, and nephew joined us this year and we all had so much fun!! The little guys especially loved frosting (I mean eating!) the cookies :) And check out the special cookies Matt made for them <3
By the time we got home, we were ALL exhausted. It was early to bed for ALL of us after such a fun but exhausting weekend! Now we just have to make it through a few days before heading into another crazy weekend. But I cannot wait for Christmas with this little dude - it's going to be SO much fun! <3
