High Five for Friday

This week has been a little crazy with trying to finish Christmas shopping, my boss being on a cruise all week so I was in charge of the school and working long hours.  However there were several highlights that made it so much better!

1. My secret santa at work dropped this little guy off for me at the beginning of the week.  I named him Owen and he makes me happy! 🙂

2. One of my parents brought me a gift for Christmas yesterday.  It is a bottle of perfume.  I thought it was so sweet for her to think of me.  🙂

3. One of my favorite Christmas traditions in Charleston is the Festival of Lights.  I haven’t been in 8 years since we lived in Utah but now I’m home and of course I wanted to go!  So we loaded up yesterday and headed to the island to see the lights.  We rode the carousel too.  🙂 I bribed Brennan to ride it with pie.  That boy loves some pie.

4. We drove through the lights, walked Santa’s village and rode the carousel.  We ended the night by roasting marshmallows and drinking hot chocolate.  It was Jaxon’s first time to go and Brennan hasn’t been since he was 4.  I loved spending the time with my boys.

5. Tonight is my office Christmas party.  I’m so excited for tonight.  It should be a blast.  Definitely going to round out my week nicely.

What traditions do you look forward to every year?

1.  On Saturday we attended Jaxon’s first cub scout Christmas party!  He is so excited to be part of scouts after waiting so patiently while we attended all the fun things for Brennan while he was a cub scout!

3. On Wednesday, the kiddies had a half day so J’s teacher had parents come in and make gingerbread houses with them!  I thoroughly enjoyed hanging out and giggling and building, getting messy with my boy!  I just love him soooo much!!!

Merry Christmas Ian!

5.  And last but certainly not least, Ian got his Christmas present early!  His all time favorite comedian, Gabriel Iglesias, came to the Performing Arts Center here in SC last night!  I bought Ian tickets and we made a night of it!  It was a great show and I laughed harder than I have in a long time!  Merry Christmas Ian!

So tell me what was your week like???
