I can't believe how fast life is moving. December
Please, December, I beg of you....s l o w d o w n.
We traveled to San Francisco for Thanksgiving this year. 17 people under one roof for 5 nights and no one even moved into a hotel. There were threats (believe me, there were), but we stuck it out and lived happily and closely with one another. We had an amazing time.
Many thanks to Dec and Lorie for putting up with us. They were gracious hosts and made us feel as though we were staying in a 5 star resort. Declan even risked his life frying a turkey for us.
The boys miss their cousins, and are still adjusting to the withdrawal they are feeling without them. It's especially hard to be without the family princess, Miss Madyson.
Goodbye, California. Until next time.
My house feels warm and inviting and smells of pine. My two favorite things to look at are this-
The tiny tree that sits in the corner of our family room, and proudly displays all the ornaments my little men have created over the years. It's the best thing in my house. Seriously.
As a side note, I am starting a new holiday contest. I am sending a prize to the person/family who sends us the first Christmas card. The only rule is, it must come through the mail....I like to keep things old fashioned. Better hustle. I'm anxiously awaiting.
And one more thing. I want another puppy. And I'm not up for hearing crap about it from my husband, my Mom, My Dad, my brother, or anyone else who is opposed to my animal addiction.
There. I said it. It's no longer a secret.
I haven't felt this free in years.
