The Last Week
This is the last week for this semester that we have to do the split household thing. I know family is eager to see us and we want to go visiting, and we will. But Michael and I are also just as eager to get some things done here at the house that have been “hanging” over our heads like getting the girls room switched, and setting up the crib for Fiona.
Today there was snow and ice for Dr. Me to head down to Utica. I’m so glad that he got there safely and am praying that there is not too much lake effect snow that Dr. Me and Dad will have to shovel this week. I’ve already resigned myself to the fact that if we get enough I’m going to have to call to have the driveway plowed. My back is still a bit tender from shoveling 3 times last week.
I’ve realized that I never got the gift post updated for Miss F’s needs. So I’m going to be doing that update next.
The girls are eager for Christmas. They have even begun taking any blanket that they can get their hands on and “wrapping presents” with the blankets and their toys. I’m hoping I can catch them doing it and get a picture later today. Yesterday I was nursing and couldn’t get my camera ready in time.
I did manage to get a picture (albeit blurry) of their town that they made from their blocks, yes every last single block. And then they were decorating with the small square ones (Klondikers). It was adorable, so here it is…
I’m trying to get organized. Trying to figure out what we can do for gifts for people that we want to give to, even though we don’t have a ton of money this year either. Yes I know Christmas is not about presents, but giving is important to me. So whether it is a store bought present or something we manage to whip up here at home, I hope to have something to give everyone this year. A little harder when it comes to the kids, but we will see what we can do.
I am also hoping that for next year I can have a setup for pictures for family to see online and now that we have a printer, hopefully be able to get more actually printed out!
Time to get back to my to-do list. Seems like Miss F might stay down this time. 🙂
