Life has been pretty busy lately.
The kids spent a week with their Aunt and cousin at the beginning of the month for their cousin’s birthday. They had a blast and got pretty spoiled with love while they were there.
Last week my best guy friend came to stay and help me clean out house. He was a HUGE help. The usual chaos is now tame again. It was super awesome to have someone get up with the kids, vacuum, dust, straighten and do the dishes before I managed to crawl my butt out of the bed every day. My house feels so much calmer now that the chaos has diminished and I cannot wait to get what’s left completed so that it feels all the better! I have to say a HUGE HUGE thanks to my buddy for being generous enough to take a week out of his life to help me out! Thanks Bro!!
Now we are waiting for Mama to come (my Mom). She’ll be here til January loving on the babies. They are sooo excited too. Everyday they ask when she will arrive. Tomorrow night is the Big Day. Emma was up late because she knows I talk to Mama late and she needed the reassurance that Mama would be coming to see her sweet self soon. Now she’s thrilled and sound asleep ready for tomorrow to get here.
Today I finally put our tree together and layered it in lights. 1100 lights to be exact. It’s a glowing beauty. I prefer an artificial tree because it’s less mess to clean up when I put it away. I prefer colored lights to white. To me the candy like glow equals Christmas. Can’t beat it! Tomorrow I am doing some other decorating in the house and Tuesday we will decorate the tree with Mama’s help. The kids are sooo looking forward to that!
We finished up the Christmas shopping yesterday too. I had a few last minute items I ordered. I’m hoping everything comes in on time. Next year I hope to have everything done much earlier than this year.
The rest of the week will be a busy one, filled with family, baking, decorating, present wrapping and gifting. It goes quickly by and can be extremely tiring but is so very worth it. Three days after Christmas brings the JOY of my baby boy’s 10th birthday. I can hardly believe he’s almost 10. It seems like just yesterday that I delivered him so close to the day we celebrate Jesus’ own birth.
I’m praying everyone has a wonderful and blessed Christmas weekend. I pray God blesses each of you and you have all the joy your heart wishes for this Christmas season.
Until next time…
