We spent another long morning in PJs (which you know I love J), just playing this morning. It was great family time! Following the lovely lazy morning, Big Brother had another ride on his bike today. It was cold but he didn’t mind at all. After his bike ride he took a moment to hit a few tennis balls. Daddy pitches the ball to him, and he basically hits the ball as far and as hard as he can. The smile on his face when he hits a big one is priceless.
When baby woke up from her nap, we did venture out to the mall, with a quick stop at Michael's Craft Store on the way. I had a great coupon for 50% off one item; however, I did not make a purchase because I was pretty determined not to spend in there. The Christmas shopping wore me out.
We left the few items that needed to be returned at home for another day, probably a good one to do without kids for those lines. Our main purpose for hitting the mall today was to search for a birthday present for Lil Sis. Her birthday is less than 1 week after Christmas. It is going to be an adjustment for us. My due date for her was Christmas Day, but fortunately she didn’t put me through labor then.
We found a cute card.
Boxing Day definitely got us! It is funny how after all the Christmas spending you can still manage to find reasons to buy something the very next day. I must say I am excited to try out my purchases. Stay tuned later in the week to see how well the whip cream cake does or does not come out...
What does the day after Christmas look like for you? Any shopping involved?
