I have a confession to make…Andrew and I took down all of our Christmas decorations (including all 3 trees and outside lights) on Friday, December 23. I know. I put the decorations up at the beginning of November and remove them before Christmas day. Here’s why…we left Friday afternoon for my mom’s and knew we wouldn’t return until Christmas night, so we wanted our house clean and “mess free” so that we could enjoy Andrew’s day off on Monday. I am sooooooo glad we did it. Yesterday, was Shull Family Fun Day :). (Not take “down the decorations day”!).
The 4 of us showed up at the mall at 9:45…we had some things to exchange (something I bought my Grandmother for Christmas was broken in the box, so I had to get that rectified at Williams-Sonoma ASAP!), we walked around and then ate lunch at The Cheesecake Factory. My kids were so good at the mall. I mean, they were seriously super, super sweet and easy going the entire time we were there.
After lunch, we came home and the kids napped for 3 1/2 hours while Andrew watched a movie and I blogged stuff…did laundry…just messed around the house. When they woke up, we went back out to eat (I know! Mix and Match Mama was off yesterday too!) at Manny’s in Frisco for some Mexican food. Then we all went by Starbucks where Mommy and Daddy had cappuccinos and the kids had a cookie. It was cold and drizzly and we enjoyed every moment of being cozy together.
I love Shull Family Fun Days!
