Our morning started at 4:15am. Calvin had a little procedure this morning - he did great but we are all very tired. I am NOT a morning person; not even a little. 2 cups of coffee and several hours later, here I sit, still tired, still feeling like going back to bed. Oh well. Maybe I'll catch a nap during the boys' naptime. Maybe.
Tomorrow, we will be having our tree trimming party. This is an annual tradition that my parents started with us and it was so much fun, that I knew it was something I wanted to carry on with our family. Andrew and I have enjoyed this celebration of the season as a couple and last year, the boys were in on it a little, but this year, I think they will love it!
Speaking of trees, do any of you that live around here, know a good place to get a Christmas tree? We are interested in going to a tree farm but really don't want to break the bank and I have no idea how much they run. Usually we just go to a tree lot and pick one but with the kids...you know, memories, pictures... :) Anyway, let me know.
We are going to go and get eggnog in the morning at Trader's Point Creamery - I think this is the first week they are offering it. I will also probably make some sugar cookies and let the boys decorate them. And we will have a variety of other snacks and "treats" for our party.
For those of you interested, it's the winter season at the Farmer's Market. It runs from 9am - 12pm on Saturdays. They offer meats, eggs, dairy products, and other seasonal produce etc. Tomorrow will be my first visit to the winter market (I haven't been able to go in several weeks!). If I find anything great, I'll let you know! Anyone else been there, lately?
Well, this is rambling...sorry...I repeat, I am NOT a morning person. :)
