It's Beginning To Look A Lot Like Christmas

I have been MIA from the blog for a week, or so.

Just when you think things should be settling down for a long winters slumber, it picks up.

The Boy has started basketball. We played three games last week.

The Short Chic had her first dance recital.

My day job has also been busy. Back to back straight weeks of training.

Plus Christmas decorating and shopping.

I am a tired Momma!

{please excuse the flash photos. I am too tired to get the tripod out to take night photos}

Both of our Christmas trees are up. Maybe not fully decorated but they are up.

The Advent Calendar is counting down the days. The Short Chic and I are in a daily race to see who gets to flip it from one day to the next. {I let her win...most days}

And the stockings {all five of them because Miss Medical Student arrives soon} are hung by the fireplace. Yes with care! I saw this cool thing on Pinterest, where you take two stocking hangers and a curtain rod and hang stockings from it. I love it!

To make it feel more like Christmas, we got our first snow today. If you want to call it that. A dusting really. But it caused all kinds of havoc to the drive to work. Maybe I am not ready for this winter thing. I think the actual truth is, I am ready for it to be winter and if I am going to go through the hassle of winter driving, I want more than a dusting. I want to be able to go sledding and make snowmen.

And then I come home tonight. Ready to crawl in my bed and sleep the  night away. But before I do, I check the mailbox and guess what I find.....

Our first three Christmas cards of the season! I can not tell you why, but it brightens my day, puts a smile on my face, and makes me feel all warm and fuzzy!
