We had a great holiday weekend – although we had to end it with sending daddy back to Taiwan which is very sad. But Thursday we loaded up the car and headed to Enumclaw to have TGD at my parent’s house. Greg and I are very lucky because our families get along wonderfully and we get to have a lot of holidays all together at one time – and Greg and I don’t have to drive around a lot. Zoe dog also got to go which was her first trip out of the house since her surgery – she was psyched!
We had a great TGD with the most fabulous food and company!
That night Fiona and I spent the night along with my sister because Friday after TG is our traditional Christmas cookie making day!
This year we got aprons for all of us (inspired by Tami =) and Fiona loved the pockets in hers! She helped some but most of the day she wanted to follow “papa” around the house and play outside with him. I think the two of them had a great time. We baked around 937 cookies that day and man WE WERE EXHAUSTED!
The next day (sat) we were going to get up and go see Santa before Daddy leaves for Asia – but the holidays had caught up to us and Fiona was having a hard time. She cried and she whined and she wanted stuff and then didn’t want it. Poor girl…she was so tired too and just crawling out of her skin but didn’t know what to do about it. We had family friends in from Portland too so we scrapped going to see Santa because we wanted a good visit with them and headed over to Greg’s parents house.
As usual we a great visit with Goren and Susan, Olivia and Natalie. Natalie was great with Fiona and wanted to show her all sorts of things and played with her like a champ. Fiona loved following her around and seemed to think it was all pretty cool. We stayed for awhile until lil’miss just couldn’t anymore. When we got home we started setting up the Christmas tree and Fiona went to bed early.
Today has been a pretty mellow day and Fiona is relieved =) She was happy to go down for a nap and went down about a hour earlier then normal – I’m sure it feels good to be in her bed again. Hopefully we’re right back on track. It’s so hard because we want to do so much with her but there’s only so much that little ball of emotions can take!
We’ll see santa when Dad gets home and our chances are better at a good visit =)
