I am really not good at posting on the weekends. :) I'm just not conditioned to thinking about posting on the weekend. And I do try to stay away from the computer on weekends as well.
So what did we do this weekend? Well, to start, on Saturday I was thankful that I got to spend the whole day with my husband and daughter. We had pictures with Santa Claus and we cut down our tree. A first for me, I had never cut my own tree before. Well, technically Anthony cut down the tree, and Zoe and I watched and took pictures. Pictures? Yes! There are pictures. I'll share them online on Wednesday I think. I want to get a little more decorating done and then I will be happy to show off.
Did Zoe cry when we went to see Santa Claus? Yes she did. I think it might have been the beard and glasses that threw her off. She isn't used to seeing men with glasses and beards. But we were visiting a really nice Santa and he was patient and kind. He took the time to "make friends" with Zoe, and eventually she was comfortable. So I think we got some great pictures of her crying and smiling. We shall see. I get those in about two weeks!
On Sunday I participated in a local group yard sale. It was all Mama's from my Mom's group place. I was thankful to meet some new mom's, maybe make some new friends and I managed to sell a few things too! But mostly I was thankful to the mama who sold me a brand new, still in the box My Pal Violet at half the retail price! I'm excited to have this toy for Zoe, as I have heard from so many other parents how much their children love this toy.
So what am I thankful for today? That it is a nice balmy 58 degrees outside and during my lunch break I took an extra long walk! That should help keep the weight off....especially with all the tempting candy at my desk...hehe.
