Our Eventful Week....

Since Tatum didn't have school Wed, Thurs, and Friday, we have done some fun things together...

Wednesday, we went to see Santa (you can see pictures in a blog below) and then had lunch with some friends.

Thursday we were at home all day. We played with ALL of her dress up clothes and I think we played with EVERY toy in her room....I should have gotten pictures of her messy room.

Today, we went Christmas shopping. We started at a HUGE crafts fair and Tatum did pretty good except she did NOT want to ride in the stroller, so I had to try to keep up with her, the stroller, and try to shop too. Luckily, my friend Brandy went with me and my sister was there for a bit too, so I had lots of help. I still managed to break a sweat trying to keep Tatum under control. I don't know why I always do this....I think it is because I get embarrassed because I feel like everyone is always looking at me and judging my "mothering skills" (or lack of them). I am sure they are thinking "I have been there too," but during all the drama, I just feel like I am under the radar or something.

Anyway, after the craft's fair, Tatum, Brandy, and I went to Wal Mart and I got basically ALL of our Christmas shopping done. I still have a few more people to buy for, but the bulk of things are done, which feels very good. I also got a small tree to put up this year. I ended up buying one because we didn't want to get the big one down, but wanted to put one up for Tatum. So, I got a white tree and decorated it with pink, purple, and teal balls. It is not complete yet, but when I finish it, I will post pictures. Tatum did so good at Wal Mart and she even helped me pick out her decorations for her tree. I can't wait for her to get up from naptime to see the semi-complete tree!

The GREAT news I got today is that Tatum's school will definitely be closed on Monday and probably more next week. I can't get ANYTHING done with her here and I had made so much progress organizing things, but I feel like our house is a WRECK again! I am a little frustrated since we only have 24 more days til DELIVERY DAY! PLUS I haven't been able to go to Physical Therapy either, so my back is KILLING me!

Oh well, I am definitely gettting some good quality time with Tatum these days. She is getting very attached to me since we are home all day together. I am going to have to figure out something fun for us to do Monday since she doesn't have school. If anyone has any suggestions, let me know!
