We had a busy weekend, starting with two different Christmas parades Friday night. Although I don't have any photographic evidence, Emma's marching band played a few Christmas tunes at the Grandville parade, while Josie's dance/cheer team performed in the Greenville Christmas parade.
On Saturday, the girls and I headed to our A-frame cottage while Chris joined us later that evening. When we arrived, we spotted a series of boats racing across the ice with special blades. If you look closely you can see a group of people standing in the middle of the lake. We actually watched them skating out to the center of the lake!
The girls were eager to test out their ice skates so when Chris arrived, I had him drill into the ice to confirm that it really was deep enough. Sure enough, the ice was nearly five inches thick in front of our cottage.
Soon after, he was busy clearing off the ice and the girls were in ice skating heaven.
Although we've been dreaming of a more elaborate fireplace, it's not in our budget right now and so we found a small electric fireplace for the A-frame downstairs. Isn't it cute? The wooden wreath is an estate sale rescue.
Like everyone, I've been busy decorating our house for Christmas and I'll be sharing some of my favorite Christmas estate sale rescues later this week. Christmas hugs!!
