Wintry airport afternoon

14 December 2018

Chris’s phone can take some great pictures, and I’m awake and pregnant in the wee early hours of the morning, so I’m sharing some from yesterday.

This pregnancy I often spend around an hour awake in the middle of the night, which I’ve sometimes been using for some productive portugu√™s Book of Mormon reading. And other times I use that awake time for less productive instagram/amazon browsing.

Tonight it shall be blogging.

Yesterday was a good thankful Thursday. Apollo and I saw our good friends at story time at the library and went to lunch with them. Then Apollo got to play outside at two sisters bakery with the toys, and in his new coat! Unfortunately I had to haul him away from there with some kicks and screams, but after that came airport time with Chris.

Chris has been working on thawing the airplane out so he can go make some instructional flying videos, but it’s a lot of inefficient work to try and heat it up when it’s been so cold and snowy.

I picked up some $1.50 hot chocolates at the gas station on my way, and Apollo and I wen to the airport with him while he worked on that. It was nice to just hang out and watch Apollo be excited about watching airplanes. That boy loves things that go.

It was pretty chilly out, but it is so nice to have some wintry weather. We’ve had plenty of soggy, rainy, gray days thus far, so having snow on the ground makes a big difference. Seeing the sun and some blue sky yesterday was also much appreciated.

We need to eventually figure out how to enjoy some sunshine and warm weather each winter for a little bit. Need to find some Hawaiians who want to house swap for a month or so during mid winter. :)

Christmas is soon and I’m really really enjoying Christmas time and all the magic and traditions that come with it.

TIS THE SEASON!

Christmastime can be so magical. I love this time of year and all the lights and music and giving and love.

We went to the nutcracker faire, which is always a festive occasion. And when we came home, after cleaning up our messes, we did our 1st annual December box! Chris and Apollo and I all got some nice gray PJs and the lego advent calendar. Fun fun. Another good idea for the December box would be a new Christmas movie and maybe some good snacks, and I could use some good snacks right now. I want white cheddar cheese-itz haha. We’ve got a lot of new Christmas movies to watch though, thanks to Mom last year and Barb’s video close out sale this year.

It has been so fun singing Christmas songs to Apollo and teaching him and Mary and angels and baby Jesus. What a joyous time of year!

PS I am so annoyed with freaking dog hair and it’s driving and it’s driving me nutso.
