Snow, birthday party & a date night!

Saturday was a very busy day at the Maxwell house. Nick had to go into work from 8-2 to work on preparing a comprehensive review for CATS testing, and we were going to a Tree-Trimming party that night and I wanted a new shirt so I had decided that me and Bailey would go to the mall. Shana graciously offered to go with us so I could actually try on clothes!! (Thank you!) By the time I got ready and got Bailey ready there was a little snow on the ground! So I decided to take Bailey outside before we left.
She wasn't quite sure what to think about it :) Then off to the mall we went. She did so well up until the very end and she was starting to get sleepy. I was finally able to find a shirt, yay! We headed home, Bailey sporting her new hat and mittens.
Then it was home for a short nap and a quick lunch and then off to a birthday party. I worked with both Eric and Rebecca at Lowe's, they got married and now have a beautiful little girl named Brynlee Reese who is 1 today, happy birthday Brynlee! This was the first time the girls have been around one another. Another friend, Brandi, was able to come and bring her little boy Cameron who is 18 months.
Then it was back home for another nap and time for me to get ready for our night out! Justin and Shana came over to babysit (Thank you!).
This is a picture of the house where the party was...it's amazing! Especially at night with all of the Christmas lights on.
It has been in their family for years. People were stringing popcorn and cranberries to hang on the tree, and kids were making snowflake ornaments out of paper to hang, and we all helped decorate. The food was great and so was the company. At the end of the night the only people still there were all the teachers who had 1 & 2 year olds at home :) Here is a picture of me and Nick...this angle kind of makes me look a little dumpy :(

Hey now, no dumpiness in this picture! I still love how that shirt and little jacket went together, and how it looked on you. Thanks for thinking of us for the babysitting job- as we said before, anytime!
