Its almost Christmas! Its been crazy and I’m sure you are feeling it, too. At this point though, I’m restfully sitting in a La-Z-Boy while watching the news and Silas play with blocks. I can say I’m fairly relaxed now, but at this point last week I was a crazy lady trying to get everything ready for the school parties, Christmas gatherings, and sending out our annual card and the many gifts to our friends and family that live far away. Its over and I’m grateful that I’m standing on the other side.
Here is a peek at our week . . .
Christmas came and landed in my dining room.
Here’s our crazy week . . .

I realized today we have 17 days till Christmas! I hope all the presents I ordered this week come in on time.
Here’s our week . . . .
Planes all lined up along the airfield.
Christmas Eve haircuts courtesy of Mimi. Silas was done after 30 seconds and was only soothed by a sucker which lasted about a minute. Can you see the tear under his eye?
Well, good morning. How did you sleep? I slept well knowing this would be on my plate this morning.
Wouldn’t it be easier to get out of bed if you knew this was in your future?
This past weekend we made our last trip of the year – the beach. My sister lives there and we won’t be seeing them this year at Christmas so we made the trip to celebrate early.
I love Daddy/Kid shots.
Here’s the past week . . .
Brooks had just returned from seeing his first movie at the theater. He was so pumped he couldn’t remember anything about the movie.
We got our Christmas tree last night and I’m truly excited for Christmas to be just around the corner. Last year, I was in a funk. I now know it was a bit of postpartum depression. This year is different. I was just as excited as Brooks when we picked out our tree. And as the boys, picked out one ornament to put on the tree (Silas could only handle one before he had a melt down) I got a tinge of excitement. I started to remember putting up the tree with my sisters and mom. I usually wore the tree skirt and danced around the room to Amy Grant’s latest Christmas album. Christmas was my thing (I would like to think it still is).
