This year the Christmas Parade in Butler was moved from the day after Thanksgiving to the Saturday before. At first I was like - really?? But the weather was BEAUTIFUL!!! I have not enjoyed a parade like that in a long time! It was so much fun and I am glad when Uncle Joe texted me first thing in the morning - I did not just say - no... we were not planning on it. I am so glad I went! We met my Uncle and Aunt and two cousins down at my Grandmas house and walked to Main Street. It was sooo nice! The kids had a great time. I think Wyatt had candy in his mouth from the min the parade started till it ended!
Sunday was Wyatt's Birthday Party with his momma. We had a small party. Just my parents, Tamara, Jim and Nicole and Then Marxville. (I love Marxville - just sayin) We had a really nice time. Wyatt had a Backyardains Party but when we went to order his cake he insisted on a Cars Cake. Which was cool. He LOVED IT! All he wanted to do was drive the cars on the cake road. He did NOT want us to cut it! lol Man it was a mess. But we ordered a big enough cake and - gasp - I let him! ha ha. Hey - your birthday only comes once a year. (in my case I decided to go down to every other... will that stop the gray hairs???)
And today we decorated for Christmas... wow I musta left a lot in my old house by accident cause I had a few things missing. I told Alyssa that whatever we are missing - we will just move on and get/make new. Can't do anything about it and we still have a lot of nice things. :-)
We like to get real trees but this past year we got a small Christmas prelit after Mr. Wyatt pulled the Christmas Tree over on himself 5 or 6 times! I usually leave the tree up a little bit after Christmas but last year come Christmas day - over HALF the ornaments were not on anymore! He got so used to the tree being on top of him he would just sit and wait for us to get him out and not even cry! So little tree again this year. Which works well cause I have a smaller place now.
It was a nice weekend/day today. Busy... but fun!
