It seems like the holiday rush has once again taken over my life. I am not sure how to make it more smooth and less busy. With working now as well as trying to fit in our traditions and keep up with church events, I think something is going to give whether I cause it or not. Wish me luck. ;)
I went Christmas shopping for the first time last night. We already have our gifts to the girls, but now I am buying for the grandmothers. It's fun when I am actually out doing it, but thinking about it is giving me a twitch in the eye. Tonight is cookie baking and watching a movie while writing our Christmas letter, as well as working on a project for my kids for Christmas. We are making each other gifts this year. (I can't say what it is because my kids sometimes come here and find out secrets)
Our weekend at my brother in law and sister's cabin was wonderfully relaxing and needed. I wondered how wise it was to go for a weekend away when there is so much to be done. But it turned out to be just what we needed...to get away from the bustle and stress for 3 full days! Here is a little slide show of our weekend.
I hope you're not too busy to enjoy the season of celebrating. =)
