Mid Week Recap - Adventures With Ellie

Mid Week Recap

8 days people 8 DAYS... yeah I'm freaking out! Although I must say I did pretty good yesterday with my oldest and the baby at the mall oh yeah I was brave and went out. Now to wrap the things I got. Although truth be told I am so horrible at wrapping! Anyone else?

Well last week I had said I would share a bit of what this weekend was going to be about. First off we started the weekend with our Gabrielle having her first reconciliation which is another step for her to get to do her first Communion.

We are so proud of her as she is learning more about her faith each day more. Learning how beautiful the love of our Lord is and what it means to trust in him. I love that she is curious and asks many questions and has a beautiful heart. I could not be more proud of our girl.

The next day we were able to head to the Jones Beach Holiday Light Show. I saw it had come back after 7 years and knew we just had to go and take a look. It was 2 1/2 miles of Holiday lights  they also told us of a radio station to tune into as we went along. Sure the wait was like 1/2 hour as they let cars go in but worth it. Another thing crossed off our bucket list!

I took loads more pics but these are a few of my favorite. It was fun to see all the animated lights they also had. If you are near Long Island I say go check it out. They will be there until the 4th of January.

I'm so looking forward to just enjoying the weekend and the rest of the Holidays. I'm actually in the work in planning my big girl's 8th birthday! I can't believe she is turning 8 in less then 2 weeks.

She already told me her request and I'm working on it!  What about you are you ready for the Holidays? Have you started wrapping gifts...That reminds me I need to go make some bows!
