{weekend rewind}

 This weekend was a chilly one! Started off with an AWFUL drive to Edmonton Thursday night with Dad and Jeff for John's memorial Friday morning. The roads were terrible plus it was snowing and dark. So glad they did the driving and I hid in the back seat. We made a change of plans en route and went and stayed with friends in Edmonton instead of going to the lake.
Delainey & Cruz had a sleepover and stayed back with Gramma as Justin had to work. Thanks again Mom.
On our way home Jeff and Dad stopped to help this guy stuck in a snowbank. We knew we had a long trip ahead of us and still they stop to help others. Love these guys.
 {Unfortunately he was out of gas too!}
The drive home was much better until about an hour from home and then it was SO slow. I was a ton of help.
Had dinner with Mom and Dad when we got home and then headed home for a quiet night.
 We got a wee bit of snow. Thankful for this strong snow shovel-er, brave dog walker & chauffeur this weekend - Delainey and I stayed very warm.
Saturday afternoon we had Nixon's 2nd Birthday party - pirate themed!
Crystal again did a great job with the decor and snacks.
Birthday boy enjoying cupckae #1.
And #2.
Our attempt at our annual photo with the birthday boy - nailed it.
Saturday night we put up the upstairs tree - a little Mickey Mouse Christmas Carole watching - she prefers the Grinch. 
We watched Elf while we finished the tree after Delainey went to bed. Then hockey. Of course.
Baby Nadeau was born on Saturday too! Can't wait to meet Marcus Everett soon. Congrats Blake & Karen.
Sunday we did some Christmas shopping and hoped to go "visit" Santa - meaning just look at him and show Delainey so she doesn't totally freak out when we go for her real visit but he didn't arrive until noon {slacker} so we'll have to try again another day.
Sunday evening Mom, Dad & Nana come over the watch the Grey Cup and have dinner. We had a great visit with them and I can honestly say I watched maybe 5 minutes of the game. :)
Hope everyone had a great weekend and stayed warm!
