Santa is coming...

Santa told me he is done wrapping these two little boys' presents!

I can't believe Christmas is in 5 days! Where did the time go? It seems the holidays are coming and going in a flash. Seeing smiling faces from my boys on Christmas morning will be priceless. I really live for their happiness, it makes all the icky stuff seem pointless.

I am hoping we will check out Christmas lights on Christmas Eve night, like my parents did with us. A tradition that never grows old. Santa will surely find his way with the brightest of lights. My 7 year old self remembers those drives like they were yesterday. So much wonder and imagination at that age, I hope my boys believe for a long time.

Let us soak up these last 5 days, and remember what our 7 year old self enjoyed about Christmas.

what's been happening...

hello.  we are still here.  blogging lately seems kind of like a chore.  but.  i know i have to keep going for my sanity and for the sake of my boys memories.  because if i am anything like my sister, i will not remember a lot of them!

  • i was so utterly sad when i heard about the school in CT.  i can't even imagine and i just pray for everyone involved.  my sweet Will is almost that age.  it just breaks my heart.
  • we had a stomach bug last week.  boo.  my sister came right in the midst of it all.  so thankful she didn't run for the hills.  regardless of the bug, i was so happy to spend time with her.  she really is like a second mom to me.
  • the boys and i are going to VA. the day after Christmas to see my family!  i will be traveling on my own, with two little ones, keep your fingers crossed.
  • santa has wrapped a lot and has to get some stocking stuffers.  he is on a roll!
  • the annual let's make Christmas cookies hasn't happened because of said stomach bug.  maybe we will try and squeeze in a batch this week.
  • Will got sick an 2 hours after his school Christmas program.  that was my main goal, to get us through it.
  • Eli clearly is my little rebel baby.  runs, jumps, and climbs everything.  in one week he busted his lip, twice, got a black eye and gave himself an egg on his head.  but, he keeps on going.
  • still adjusting here.  it can be quite lonely.  i wish that i already had friends here.  i think once i can get some clients, then i might feel better about this all.  i just keep telling myself, everything happens for a reason.  there is a reason, Lew got transferred here over GA.
