Oh how I wish I had the time like I did last week to sit down and write our story! Don’t worry, I’ll be back with more…hopefully tomorrow. And I’ve pulled out some pictures that I just need to scan. I am hoping to finish the story by our anniversary, which is Friday, so I better get crack-a-lackin’!
I should have known that the last week of school would be crazy! Quick run down of the week so far:
-Monday: Remember to send Logan to school with a gift for the gift exchange and a stuffed animal for…okay, I have no idea what they were for, but I’m sure it was cute and fun. Make cupcakes for Connor’s birthday celebration at school (I actually did that Sunday, along with making 3 huge batches of caramel corn for teacher appreciation at C’s school); pick up Chick-Fil-A for Connor’s birthday lunch, take time to have cupcakes in his class, spend a few hours in the afternoon helping a friend in need (and the things I learned there could be a blog post all in itself. I’ll just leave it at this: it really is so much better to give than to receive, and I am humbled by the blessings I have in my life.) And of course, the regular stuff which makes a full day by itself!
-Today: Make to the mall exactly when it opens to pick up a few things, go to playgroup, go to Connor’s class Christmas party, swing by the grocery store, pick up Logan and Camryn from a friend’s house, take the boys to get haircuts, and finally make it back home at 4:30. Dinner, bed, and make cupcakes for Logan’s Christmas party.
-Tomorrow-Bible study, Winter Luncheon at C’s school (that will make 3 days in a row that I’ve been up at the school), Logan’s Christmas party, but then…ah…a bit of rest. The crazy week is over. Well, until Friday when we plan to open some Christmas presents, and Saturday when we are having a little birthday celebration for Connor. And of course I am so hopelessly behind on laundry and house cleaning that I don’t know if I will ever catch up.
It’s been crazy, but I really do love it! Christmas spirit is in full swing around here. I still need to take some pictures of our Christmas decorations. Soon…
I know the blog has been totally picture-less lately, so I’ll at least post one. I took Camryn to this garden on Saturday to take some pictures. She was not cooperative at all…I made the mistake of getting out the stroller, and she just wanted to be pushed around. We ended up taking a little walk for awhile, and then it got cold and dark. So this was the best picture I got. Shortly after this picture, she started crying and the fruit snacks came out which brought her momentary happiness, but it was pretty much over by then. I was bummed! She looks so cute in her red Christmas dress. I’ll have to try to get some pictures of her in it another day.
Okay, in the time I spent writing this, I could have written more of our story. Oh well. Look for it tomorrow!
