Later in the evening Brent and the boys set up the Christmas Tree and we all put on some decorations.
I got a little knitting time in here and there over the 4 day weekend. We even went and visited Santa at the mall on Friday evening. It wasn't bad at all. Jacob went to the movies Friday with a friend from school, and Brent, Nathan and I braved K-mart. It really wasn't that bad, but I swear if Santa does not bring Nathan a Whac-a-mole game, Santa beware!!! The child will NOT be happy!
We went out to eat Friday night and Jacob worked on his list for Santa since we were going to the mall to see him. Nathan walked up to Santa and said, "Hey, Little Dude, I want a Whac-a-mole." And that was that!
(my scanner is not hooked up so I took a photo of the photo of Santa)
On Sunday, Nathan and I went to Laurin's annual Gingerbread House party. I didn't take my camera but I'm sure Laurin will post some pictures on her blog from the party. Nathan had a great time, as did I. Chris, Ericka and Donna (Chris's mom) were there too when I was there, so it was nice to spend time with them and Laurin and her hubby. Gina and her oldest son were there for a smidgen when I first got there, but they finished their Gingerbread SHIP and set sail for home. Thanks Laurin for letting us crash your party! I want to do it again next year now! :)
