This weekend really did feel like Winter! We had one of those weekends (weather-wise) where you just want to curl up on the couch, watch Christmas movies, and drink hot chocolate. We did spend some time at home but I do like to get out and do things. Saturday evening, Nene came with us to the Mall and Avery rode the Carousel and played in the large playhouse and then Scott and I went to dinner with friends in the city at Reef. It’s nice to live outside the city away from it all but then be able to hop in for some fun! Sunday morning we relaxed and then took Avery to go ride the Choo-Choo train at the Galleria. We haven’t really prepared for cold weather so I needed to pick up some things for us to stay warm in now that I no longer fit into my normal tops and Avery has grown out of everything she has. As an extra bonus, A got to pick out her own Godiva chocolate truffle which was really cute because she knew exactly which one she wanted. This is so like Avery. She is very decisive.
On another note, we were at our house (the one under construction) on Saturday and she told Scott she wanted to go fishing pole. Scott took her fishing the week before so when she saw the lake behind our house, she remembered.
House Update: We are planning to move in three weeks so hopefully the house will be very close to complete. I will be soooooo relieved once everything is done. It has been quite a journey and a ton of work. More than anything, we are just super ready to finally get there and settle in. Everything is being trimmed out at this point. These pics are from a month ago.
