Chillin' & A Holiday Playdate

Wednesday, December 28, 2011
After a busy few weeks leading up to Christmas, I decided not to plan any major activities or outings for this week. We have a few things scheduled, but for the most part, our days are free to relax.

Yesterday, we did have a play date with Harper's preschool friends. Since the kids started kindergarten, seeing each other has been tough. With sports' schedules, after-school activities, and busy weekends, it's been impossible for us to get together. The kids and the moms were accustomed to seeing each other 3 times per week. Now, we're lucky if we run into each other once a month.

Our friend Kim was kind enough to offer to be the host. She's got the perfect house for entertaining children; a large finished basement just begging for kids to take over. The kids treated us to the "Disneyland Cafe", a lunch show complete with costumes and food vendors. The girls dressed in costume and performed a dance while the boys walked around selling "food". It was hilarious. So entertaining. The kids should have charged admission for the show. It would've been worth a buck or two.

Emma was dressed up like a chicken at one point.

Harper was sick and stayed home with the Hubs. She was so upset to miss out on seeing her friends. She misses everyone so much.

After the play date, I came home and took a nap!!! I haven't napped in ages. It was the perfect day for a nap; gray and drizzly outside.

I woke and played Wii with the kids. I meant to play for 10 minutes. An hour later I was still sitting in front to the TV with the Wii remote in my hand!

That's my Wii Mii, second from the left. I won!

And my special surprise was that my girlfriend Shannon sent me a text asking me if I had ever seen Woody Allen's "Midnight in Paris". I said that I had not, and she generously offered to drop it off at my house. Yay! I'm going to watch it tonight. Can't wait. Have you seen it?
