The Adventure Starts Here: Five on Friday

Five on Friday

I finally felt back to normal this week.  I'm feeling better again and Noah and I are back to having play dates and running errands.  I'm so glad to have one normal week before the craziness of Christmas starts.  Chris is officially off of work for the rest of the year starting today.  He will still have to check email and maybe do a little work each night, but it will be so nice to have him home every day!


I'm sure many of you have seen a few variations of this picture on Pinterest.  I've wanted to do something like this with Noah ever since he got the Little Tikes car for his birthday.  We finally did it this weekend and Noah thought it was pretty funny to have a tree tied to the top of his car :)


We love doing crafts around here.  I decided to keep it really simple this Christmas and found some foam Christmas shapes and a bunch of stickers at Michaels.  I've been doing a craft a week and Noah loves decorating them all with stickers.  So far we've done a tree, a wreath, and a stocking, and next week we will decorate a gingerbread man!


There have been some construction vehicles (or what we call diggers) in the parking by our community pool for the last few weekends.  Chris took Noah to see them a while ago, and he's wanted to bring me back with them for a while.  We went over this past weekend and got some pictures of Noah with his current obsession!


I love sending and receiving Christmas cards.  In our apartment, we had this card holder.  However, Noah would be all over the cards at the bottom, so we decided to get a new one this year.  Our old one can hold more cards, so I think when Noah is older we will go back to using that one.  But for right now this one is perfect!


Who knew putting lights on our bushes would be so much work!  As I mentioned last week, we found out we didn't have any outlets in the front of our house outside.  Well our electrician finally came this past weekend and installed a few.  We decided that since he was there, that we'd have the outlets hooked up to a light switch inside our house.  That combined with how our foundation is meant that it took over 6 hours and required a hole to be cut into our wall.  The hole was patched and my dad came to spackle and re-paint and now we are good as new.  And the lights look great too ;)
