It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas…

But we need to get through D’Arcy’s birthday, our anniversary & the TIANS Conference first!

Last weekend, my mother came over and we tackled the Christmas decoration of the guest living room and the dining room.  We put trees up in each and decorated the mantles over the fireplaces.  The kids were so excited to see the decorations come out of the attic and were disappointed when we told them that our own decorations won’t go up until into December!

D’Arcy’s birthday is on Friday and I told him that we’ll have dinner together as a family to celebrate.  I also told him that his gift will be an “extra special cake” that the kids & I are making for him.  Evan is the only one so far who knows what it’s going to be since he’s the only one who can keep a secret!  Sarah thinks we should make a runner and Olivia thinks we should make him a refrigerator cake!  (It’s neither of those things if you’re peeking at this Darce!)

We head to Halifax on Saturday for the TIANS Conference.  Back in the Spring, we received a gift certificate from a special guest, so we will mix business with pleasure and go to Gio’s for dinner to celebrate our anniversary a night early.  We tried to go there in the summer, but they were closed.  I’m really looking forward to a wonderful grown-up dinner and I think I’m going to have a hard time choosing what to have; everything looks so delicious!

In the meantime, I have to pack, organize, clean, etc. to get ready.  My mom will be taking the kids to an Advent Celebration on Saturday, so I’ve offered to send enough safe egg-free cookies to serve all the kids.

Back to the kitchen…
