A Christmas Sleepover Weekend

I am sooooooooooooo excited!!!  Today I am the featured blogger on my very first link up! LeAnn over at Join the Gossip and Kimberlee at I Have a Degree in This have been gracious enough to allow me to be a part of their weekly link up Monday Morning Gossip this week.  And I couldn't be happier.  If you haven't checked out either of their blogs, or the link up, you should.

So, on to this week's Monday Morning Gossip.  This weekend felt unbelievably short.  I think that had something to do with the fact that I had to go into work for a while yesterday.  When a private high school has their open house, it is all hands on deck.

Friday night, the hubby surprised me with holidays flowers and a date night to the movies.

 We went to a theater near us where you can enjoy dinner, cocktails and a movie.  It is a great way to enjoy a movie!  We saw Hunger Games The Mockingjay and really enjoyed it.  We both read the trilogy and have seen all of the Hunger Games movies.  This one did not disappoint and we are ready for Part 2 to come out!

The rest of the weekend was spent having our annual Christmas sleepover with our nieces.  It is one of my favorite Christmas traditions.  Every year we do something different.  Last year we made ornaments, this year we baked and decorated Christmas cookies. (Stay tuned for the recipe later this week.)

Then we drove around looking at Christmas lights.  There are a few parks by us that go all out.  This was our first time seeing these lights, so we were just as excited as the girls!  (PS - Trying to make pictures of Christmas lights out of a moving car is tough!)

After a dinner of grilled cheese and tomato soup, we snuggled in to watch Christmas movies before putting the girls to bed.  (And then we watched part of the Badger game.  I won't say more than that because I am still grieving.  It was hugely embarrassing.  We had to turn it off.)

Sunday morning we woke up to two little monkeys jumping on our bed.  After getting E (that's me) some coffee, we decorated the cookies we had made the night before (the icing needed to harden overnight) and watched more Christmas movies.

Then it was time for the girls to go home and for me to go to work.  We finished off the weekend with some laundry, cleaning and a nice, relaxing dip in our (finally fixed!) hot tub.  What a whirlwind!  I'm finally feeling Christmasy and looking forward to wrapping and getting a few more things off of my Christmas to-do list this week.  I hope you had a great weekend too!
