Hey hey, and welcome back to a glimpse into my week. Life has been a doozy lately with Claudia going through a phase of wanting all my attention, all the time. I have tried to just embrace this phase of life and be thankful that I have the opportunity to watch her grow and learn and become a little lady. Shit, it’s a challenge though.
She has been wild, dabbing and ridding her tricycle and playing Little Mama.
We did a lot of fun school lessons this week, learning about Arizona. The kids love this state project we are working on. Previously, they couldn’t really see past Texas or Mississippi.
Harper is absolutely obsessed with cooking and baking, so I have started to let go of a little control and let him in my beloved kitchen, mostly with free reign. He decided to do cupcakes this week and they were delicious! The cleanup wasn’t so fun though.
Quentin and Claudia helped me make my first roasted chicken (come back tomorrow for more about that experience) on Friday. Then Saturday, we went to tour a possible wedding venue (now marked off the list). In the evening, our friends came over to have drinks and dinner with us. We had so much fun. Lots of laughter.
On Sunday, the weather was sunny and perfect and Claudia wanted to play outside. So we played in the driveway and ended up rolling out mats to lie down and soak up the sun. After nap time, we went to a holiday parade. We were so freaking late and parked a couple of miles away. We were too late to get a good spot for viewing. Quentin and Claudia took turns on Stuart’s shoulders. I held Claudia on mine a little, but it was hurting with her dancing on my shoulders. She’s a mess. We enjoyed getting into the spirit of the season for sure!
Now onto Thanksgiving! I can’t wait to have a good and hearty meal on Thursday and enjoy a long weekend together as a family. AND PUT UP MY TREEEEEES!
How was your week? Are you in total holiday mode yet?
