Distillery Christmas Market

What an amazing weekend! I decided to close the shop Sunday ( yes take a day off finally!) and we decided to go to the Distillery Christmas Market. Lucky there was no line (apparently on Sundays it goes around the block). It costs $5 to get in but only on weekends. It was extremely busy but oh so worth it. There was so much to do and so much to see. London was in heaven which meant that I was in heaven. I was just happy to have some quality time with my hubby and daughter. We had hot chocolate and apple cider. London went on the carousel for the first time. That was a huge hit. We were even given a Rudolph nose as we entered the park which made London laugh very hard every time I put it on. (it would not fit her tiny nose) I recommend seeing the pink trees. The big christmas tree reminds me of the one in NYC at the Rockerfeller centre. Im very happy we got a chance to go, I was afraid I was going to miss it this year, and with London only being a toddler once, I want to make sure she gets to experience everything. Make sure you get down there before they close. The last day is Thursday December 22nd 2016. The Christmas market is closed Mondays but Distillery district is still open. Tuesdays is pets day and they recommend you take double strollers during weekdays (due to larger crowds on weekends). They are open from noon to 9pm (10pm Fridays and Saturdays).

London has changed so much, she is like an actual little mini human roaming around (not a little baby anymore) She likes to shop now, she will pick up stuffed animals, toys, and even clothes. She likes to feed Kevin and I. She even gives us kisses at the same time which is the sweetest thing ever! I am crazy about her #familygoals

I am currently working 7 days a week. Which leaves very little time for me to do anything like, cook, bake, walks, distillery christmas market, etc. I am however extremely flattered and humbled by all the people who come by the store and tell me they read the blog, or tell me they drove down from Markham/up north. Please be patient I have very exciting news coming up and cannot wait to fill you guys in. I am also currently in the process of setting up our online shopping so that ALL of our items can be available for purchasing online. London however is starting to notice my absence. When I get home she will not let me put her down for a second without starting to cry. She will give me hugs and kisses none stop which literally melts my heart each and every time. She won't let anyone put her to sleep but me, but then because she has not seen me all day she tries to stay up. And me being the big softy that I am have to admit I have let me stay up for a few nights past 9:30 - 10PM (normally her bedtime would be 6:30-7pm) The other thing that is happening that breaks my heart is that when she comes to the store during the day she wont want to leave. Once she leaves  its always with her full out crying/screaming. I have actually had to close the store down a few times and carry her all the way home as she will not go in the stroller. I almost wonder if she should come to the store or save her the cry? feeling a little confused. I just love seeing her for that short period so much. Being able to hold her kiss her! I am crazy about her!...okay I am going to stop now.
