Thank God that is over. For reals.
I had those trees down by 10 am this morning so we could get back to our regular drive me crazy days.
We did make it to church on Christmas Eve, which was important to me, but damn hard to pull off since Sammi does not nap anymore and is so exhausted by 5 pm that she literally gets delusional. (She starts crying and mumbling in jibberish and the whole nine yards. Fun.) Our church did a special service for kids this year that was only 30 minutes long and included nothing other than singing and them being to participate in the Christmas story. PERFECT.
I went to Target this morning to score some more of these raspberry pink (they also have red) trees in preparation for the Heart to Heart swap. Just in case you want to join in and need a tree to hang your lovelies on. The one on the left I trimmed to make it more sparse for ornament display. I will soon chop the other one up too, but it takes a long time. (They are $4.)
I will start opening sign ups on Jan 2.
I have also been loading the etsy shop and have a lot more to come. I really am enjoying having something that I can start and finish to keep me occupied.
With that I am looking forward to a new year. PLEASE let it bring a baby who walks (any day now, he is 15 months old today and I do not want to go back to physical therapy with him) and a soon to be three year old who uses the potty. PLEASE? The downhill side of this mountain might be lovely.
