A couple of Sunday's ago, Brian and I left Maddie with his parents and we went out shopping for Maddie's Christmas presents. We hit up Toys R Us and went WAY over budget, but we got some real cute toys for her. She has entered a new toy phase, so earlier in the week I picked up all the toys that were broken or missing pieces and threw them away. Then, I gathered up all the toys that she has out-grown and put them away. (All during the night while she was asleep of course. I don't think she has noticed anything is missing)
While we were at Toys R Us, Brian stumbled upon a train set that he would have loved to have. He has actually talked about wanting a remote control train set, and here, he found one. A Christmas one to be exact. We both looked at it and thought how cute it would look around the Christmas tree. We looked at each other, then back at the train for a few minutes, wondering if we should just buy it. And buy it we did. I didn't really hesitate because he just had a birthday, and he had just found out that he passed his CPA exams. Its official. Brian is now a CPA! It has been something he has been working on forever! We are both very glad he is done!
After Maddie had her bath, we surprised her with the train and she helped Brian put it together.
Lastly, today was the last day of preschool for this semester and we finished it off well with a class Christmas party. They had a craft, book exchange and they got to ice sugar cookies.
