Weekend Recap - The Little Things

For this week's "The Little Things", I thought I'd share all the random little things we did this weekend.  I feel like life is made up of a bunch "little things", and they are often more fun than the "big things".  This past 3-day weekend was busy, productive, and fun.  We celebrated Valentine's Day in a laid back way.  We exchanged some small gifts and Chris picked up take out :)  On Saturday, my dad came over to help install a new car battery.  And on Sunday, my mom came over to babysit Noah while we were at our cooking class.

^^^ we gave Noah this tool kit and a few books

^^^ I gave Chris the man basket and he got me roses and tons of chocolate!

^^^ I love how Noah is ready to help the guys!  And Noah got to do some "cooking" too while watching my mom make him some scrambled eggs ;)

Chris had off work on Monday because of Presidents' Day.  We went to a make up music class (from when Noah was sick in December).  I love when Chris is able to come with us and gets to experience these things with Noah.  Now that Noah is walking in class, it's completely different from the last time Chris came with us on MLK Day!

After class, we went to my parents' house for lunch and to go sledding (we also needed to pick up our suitcases).  First we took Noah to the retention basin in their neighborhood since it's a medium sized hill.  Chris went down with Noah twice, but Noah didn't seem to like it.  So we went back to my parents' house and pulled Noah in his little sled down the driveway… he loved that!

^^^ waving to us all as he drove by :)  when did my baby become a little boy???

^^^ Real life captured by my dad.  I'm asking telling Chris (for the second or third time) not to throw Noah up in the air.  It scares me when he does it with Noah in his snow suit, since that material is slippery!   He still did it multiple times despite my (and my mom's) requests.

On a side note, my mom got Noah some new shoes on Friday.  We took him to Stride Rite to get measured.  We got him some shoes in the fall and he was a size 4.5.  Since then he's preferred wearing his moccasins all the time.  But now that he's really walking I wanted a hard sole shoe for when we are outside.  It turns out he is now a size 7!  He got a lot of practice wearing them this weekend… Chris has been taking him to go get the mail.  We live in the farthest apartment from the elevator, so it's a VERY LONG WALK!

^^^ embarrassing evidence that when I get home I change into sweatpants but keep my sweater on ;)

I love 3 day weekends!  The time we get to spend as a family is so precious to me.  I want to bottle it up!

Once again I'm linking up with Jess of Sadie Sky Boutique and Ashley of Words About Waverly.
