I was so proud of myself when December rolled around and I had already started working on projects, checking things off my list, and trying my hardest to not be frazzled when there was a week left until Christmas. Here it is a week away and I am still throwing together projects, figuring out when I will wrap anything, and making plans for who is cooking what when next week. It seems that try as I might, there is always one more thing to be done and I can’t just sit still, listen to Christmas music and sip hot chocolate.
I was proud of myself to have made, ordered and sent my Christmas cards in a 24 hour period this week. There were lots of terrible outtakes.

Somehow we miraculously ended up with this
As the week went on, I spent time at various school events, helping kindergartners make gingerbread houses
and watching my son “perform” . This is while he was supposed to be singing and dancing. He sat and smiled very well.

Today, it rained
So, I spent the afternoon inside trying to finish making gifts that need to be sent like yesterday.
while I made photo tiles, my daughter made random ornaments with glittery scrapbook paper (as close as I will come to letting glitter enter my home) and rub ons.
And now, while my kids watch Frosty, I am going to pretend there is nothing left to do and sit and drink hot chocolate.
Aren’t I festive?
