I don't know why I'm feeling like it is hard to keep up with my life, but for whatever reason I am.  We were able to have quite a bit of fun this last week.  First things first ....

CHRISTMAS has arrived in the Palmer home!  I love Christmas, love love love it!!!!  Because we are leaving this month we made sure we went early to get our tree.  The problem is that with the move and still having some of our things in storage we don't exactly know the location of all of our Christmas decorations.  We had fun putting up what we had available and figure there will be more ornaments on the tree next year.  We were loving how pretty it all was and then tragedy struck.  Our tree fell down (no idea how) and smashed all, and I mean all, of my breakable (special) ornaments.  I had my cry and will post a picture of the damage after I get them off my phone.

Justin and I have never had a night away together since we had kids.  Some of that is because we really like hanging out with our kids.  Another reason is because Evans needs are very specific that we really need to feel comfortable with who we leave him with.  The last reason is that we have never had the offer from anyone to allow us to go.

My wonderful friend Kristen knew that we were really needing some alone time to re-connect as a couple and she and her equally wonderful husband offered to come to our home and watch our boys.  We quickly took them up on their offer and will be forever grateful!  Justin and I drove to Banff for a night and a day while our boys played with 4 of their best friends.  I'm sure they got into all sorts of mischief but I know they had fun!!!  Justin and I needed that time together.  We ate at a fondue restaurant and then had the best brunch ever created (ever) at the banff springs hotel the next morning.  We loved that time together, THANK YOU!!!!

What a fun weekend. I'm sorry about the ornaments. You didn't tell me about that. I would have cried to. Can you glue any of them together? Love you!

Thanks for sharing the pictures. I love your tree. Too bad about the ornaments... those are the times we have to remind ourselves about what is really important. I'm glad you and Justin were able to get away for the weekend. I had frog legs once. I wasn't too impressed.

I ate at a place like that in Japan! Very cool :) Cute to see the boys hanging up ornaments. I can't wait to have kids when Christmas rolls around. So much fun.
