I am back to being a bad blogger again. No apologies. I’ve been busy. Christmas time is such a fun but busy time of the year. The other night we drove around our neighborhood to look at lights. Such a different experience compared to years past. Nathan asked why we had to drive and not walk. Well it’s only 20 degrees not 60 out. We had fun driving around listen to Christmas music with the windows open. The wilds made it almost an hour before they were nodding off.
John and I visited Nathan’s class on Tuesday. We made a Christmas snack with the kids. We did the Grinch Kabobs that have been floating around Pinterest. It was so much fun. Nathan lit up when we walked in. I think the kids really enjoyed it. I was thrilled that John was able to make it. Tuesday night I took the boys to see Santa at our gym. They were so sweet. They even hugged him bye.
I went back in to Nathan’s class on Friday to help make gingerbread houses. All the kids made their own using little milk cartons. Nathan’s teacher even gave Logan one to make. All the kids loved making the houses and eating all the candy. I’m sure they were nice and wound up for the rest of the day. Nathan just couldn’t wait to eat his as soon as he walked in after school.
I’m pretty much done with shopping. I have a couple odds and ends to pick up. I really want to start shopping in January next year. I hate how stressed out I get about it. I’m going to try my best to start earlier. I really want to enjoy December next year and relax a little. The wilds won’t be little for long.
John has been traveling on the weekends. It’s been a bit of a bummer but it is what it is this time of year. I’ll take his schedule now over years past any day. I love that most days he eats breakfast and dinner with us. That’s usually unheard of in retail. It may be a late dinner but at least he’s not stuck at a store until 11 at night. I feel very blessed this year.
How’s everyone’s December going? Can you believe Christmas is next week? This year flew by.
