A lot of baking going on

Our Nate

Yesterday was absolutely fantastic.
The weather was warm for this time of year.
Had Nate to the Doctor for his weigh in... 19lbs on the dot... We are so happy about that.
He has grown so fast.

After the Doctor we came home and baked the afternoon away, we baked lots of peanut butter cookies and 2 apple crisp.

Kelli made the most delicious shepherds pie, She is becoming quite the little chef they hung out around here until about 8.

After they left Hubby and I had I quiet night in he watched his TV and I worked on my knitting.

We were going to seal the windows today... but the weather is supposed to stay mild for awhile. Boomer thinks it will get up to 20 Celsius that is 70 Fahrenheit on Friday.
So we'll be putting that off for another day.

I'm thinking about getting the outside Christmas decorations up
What do you think is it too soon ?
I am always the first one on the block with them up and the first one to take them down.
