simply lovely day

It is Christmas Eve and I will be heading into the office in a wee bit.


Those office days however make me appreciate the days where I don't go into work even more.

Here's how Court and I spent one of those days recently. He calls them Mommy days...

and I call them simply lovely days.
We went tobogganing in the park with a couple of his friends until his cheeks were bright red and then walked home for some hot chocolate.

We hit the library for books...

and maybe a movie...or two.

We dragged our big bag of books across the street to the bakery...

where we admired the decorations...

Court ordered his favourite monkey bread...

and he asked me if I got a picture of him "eating the boob".

We read some of the books we had picked out. I drank my pot of tea.





We are going on a little holiday...a little french get-away...with family!  We will be spending our time after Christmas in a cabin in Quebec...and I do imagine a few more simply lovely days there will do this mommy good!  I will be off-line until then...

Merry Christmas my sweet friends.  What a blessing you have been to me this year!

Hugs and kisses...or should I say grosses bises!
