Oh the weather outside is frightful....
... but the fire is so delightful....
oh wait, crap... never mind, I don't have a fireplace, BOO :(
Oh well, I'll make do with layered clothing and extra blankets! Ha!
The weather has been very "wintery", but hey... we live in Minnesota, what do you expect? Much better than having a brown Christmas if you ask me!
This month is literally flying by, I swear. I can't believe it's only 10 days until Christmas!! WHAT? It has been so busy lately, I feel like I'm missing everything. I've been working as usual, but the holiday bustle is in full swing and there is barely time to breathe (let alone sleep)! We had our first Christmas gathering over the weekend at my Dad's and had a nice time seeing everyone. The kids loved opening presents, and I have to say, even though Lila is still too young to really understand what this is all about, seeing the look on her face and watching her take it all in, demonstrates the magic of the season! I can only imagine it gets better!
I'm back to work again tonight and tomorrow, but then I'm off work for a week. Normally, I would be thrilled to have a little "down-time", but I'm pretty sure there will barely be a moment to rest my buns, as I'm hideously behind in my Christmas to-do list. I'm more and more forgetful these days, and I'm trying to play it off as "those darn pregnancy hormones", but honestly, I think I'm just getting flakier as time goes on... Ryan tells me all the time I'd lose my head if it weren't attached. Sigh.
Speaking of forgetting... once again, I'm behind on the Birthday wishes, so please forgive me!
Happy Birthday this month to.... Betsy, Sammy, Alex, Kelli, Amy, and Landree!!!
Ok, I'm going to try to take a nap, then gotta figure out something for dinner.... any suggestions?
