Another Saturday Report

It was a busy day of running around town as a family. We hit quite a few stores in order to finish up our Christmas shopping. Liam was pretty good the entire time.

We stopped at a furniture store to see if there were any toddler size arm chairs. (We didn't end up liking the armless chair we found last week.) Liam wouldn't try the arm chair out because he was SO distracted by the many balloons adorning all the sale items in the store. He went in circles all over the place trying to get the balloons down. A clerk there even gave him a big yellow balloon but he wanted the green, red and blue ones out of his reach... each time we picked him up he would throw one of his mini-fits. He did enjoy the yellow balloon once we got back into the car though.

This is Liam at noon.
He went straight to his crib when we got home and snoozed for 2 hours.


When Liam woke from his nap, he went to Grandma Rose's house (across the street) to play while Ian and I ran to Wal-mart for some grocery shopping and a few other Christmas gifts. What a joke to try and get in and out of there in an hour. #1 it's a Saturday and #2 it's two weeks before Christmas! We spent 30 minutes just in line to check out!


When we got home, Liam played for a bit after having a ball at Rose's house then took a late nap. He woke around 5-ish and we got ready to go out to eat to a place recommended to us a few days ago. Liam was so cute on our way to Mi Rancherito. He played with his balloon in the back seat and was a delight at the restaurant. Thank goodness!



After dinner we headed to the mall for another couple last resort Christmas presents ideas. We only ended up buying one more present then we went home for the night. Now the main thing we need to get done is a family snapshot for Christmas cards. Everything has to be shipped and mailed out this week! Golly, it's times like these I am grateful for a small family. Christmas shopping, wrapping, shipping would be a nightmare otherwise. It's already stressful enough just getting the few people we do buy for each year!

This is a photo that Ian took of us at the mall tonight.

Love that grin on Liam's face, hugging the balloon! That's the face E makes after she sticks her finger in my nose.

I can't wait to go shopping for gifts and wrap them. Wrapping is the best part (other than opening, of course!)
