Why is it that Christmas seems like it is a while away and then once it is here you start saying, “I can’t believe it is Christmas already!?” Well, that is how I feel this week. I also had the thought of “Wow, this is probably going to be the easiest Christmas I will have for a while too.” Starting next year I will have double the gift buying, double the hiding and sneaking, double the projects and double the wrapping. I hope I can handle it, I hope I can try to be the same Mommy to one as I am to two.
I also started thinking that I will have double the excitement, double the cuteness, double the love and joy of sharing such a wonderful time and the Love of Jesus.
So I’m soaking this Christmas in. By this time next year everything will be such a blur and I will be trying to find my footing with two. So I’m going to spend extra time with Big and Little…..uh, right after tonight and my last things of to do’s.

I have been with Little Man a lot this week so…
When Little is sick and he is still as sweet and silly as ever.
That it seems he continues to be a “good boy” more often.
That he takes naps still.
That it is so cold out that it is some what of an excuse to curl up and be lazy.
That I have a great boss that allowed me to bring Little in when his school closed so I wouldn’t have to use my PTO.
For technology to allow me to work from home so I wont have to use my PTO.
