My, oh my, we have been busy. And, busy in such a good way. I hardly know how to feel about today. Elated to be back to routine? Frustrated that I was 20 minutes late to preschool? Lonely for adult company? Thrilled for a little quiet while the boys are at school? Tired? COLD? Raring to tackle new things and projects in this new year?
Probably all of it. I'm a complex gal.
And, did I mention cold? BITTER COLD.
So before I get started on the NEW things, here's what we've been up to.
A photo session (I love the out-takes!):
Baking cookies with Daddy:
A lovely Christmas morning:
Playing in the snow:
Oh, it was a good time for sure. I feel like each Christmas with the kids brings a little more balance and perspective and a little less crying and stress. And, while I loved it all, now we have packed away the decorations and are ready to clean house. Literally. We've got plans up our sleeves around here, oh yes we do.
The trick is to get them out of our sleeves and into our lives. But if there is a time to do that, the new year is it, so bring it on!
