Life has been crazy, busy at my house to say the least.
I have been cleaning, purging old toys that are neglected, and baking.  
(ella's gingerbread house from last year)

I was talking with a friend about how when we were young it seemed
as if Christmas arrived so slowly, 
but when you have a million presents to buy/make and food to prepare...
as an adult you could use a few more days. 

(below are pics of the kids from last year... haven't taken pics this year.  guess i better get on it!)

I am always ready for Christmas once September is over. 
I really could skip Halloween.
But, once the special day is here...
the wait is always worth it. :)



  1. Awww, love the photos from last year!! Hope you are not too stressed about all of your Christmas to-dos! :)

  2. oh my goodness I completely agree with you.. it's different when you're running around everywhere trying to bake, clean and shop lol :)
    I've been MIA as well.. tis the season I suppose! Have a wonderful Christmas :)

  3. I know what you mean about the busyness. My hubby and I travel during the holidays, and it's always hectic getting ready for our trip!

  4. Holidays are so Crazy!! But all worth it for how happy the kids are!
