Christmas Party & Other Weekend Scenes

Happy Monday!  These Christmas weekends seem to continue being full and fun.  Friday night we had our annual neighborhood Christmas party and it was a blast.

We left a good amount of time open on Friday to set up so we wouldn't be rushed and then had a great time eating, drinking and being merry with friends. 

We asked everyone to bring a few things for the local food bank for us to drop off this week and we ended up with a bunch of toys for Christmas and food!  A few of the boys dressed up as Santa and elves so that was also a highlight! 

Saturday was rainy and cold so we had a total lazy, by the fire, Christmas movie day.  It was so relaxing and we all loved it.

Saturday night Penn State was playing in town so we joined my family to watch the game.  It was past Tatum's bedtime but he lasted two periods and slept the whole way home + going right to bed when he got home.  He loved running around the box.

Yesterday we had a morning train ride with Santa - more on that tomorrow but we all enjoyed it despite the terrible weather.

We finished off the weekend last night with a gingerbread making event at our country club with friends.  I "made" Tatum's house for him and he had fun running around with his friends.

It was a great end to a festive weekend - We all got into Bingo, enjoyed the food and being together.  Tatum went straight to bed when we got home!

I can't believe there is only one more weekend until Christmas!  


  1. Your neighborhood party seems like so much fun - I love how you have such a tight knit group there! I had a lazy movie day on Friday and it was lovely, too. Sometimes the weather just calls for it. :)
