Another year has come and nearly gone and it's amazing to me how I feel like we just had Christmas! When I was a kid it seemed like Christmas took FOREVER to come and now it just sneaks right up on us. We love this time of year and have had a lot of fun making gingerbread houses, watching Christmas movies for family movie night, driving around to look at Christmas lights and making sad attempts at singing Christmas songs. I swear I know the songs when they are on the radio but when we go to sing them without the radio it's so hard to remember the words.
I am slowly but surely getting finished up with Christmas shopping and trying to make sure all the things from the letter's to Santa have been covered. Tomorrow is the kids last day of school for two weeks. Isaac is excited, Audrey is sad. I'm a little of both. I hate getting up at 6:45 every morning to get them up but am a little anxious for the boredom which always leads to fighting.
Cassidy is officially in the toddler bed as of a month ago. Not such a fun transition though. She wakes up a few times a night and wants out. We've had to childproof the inside doorknob of her room and let her scream it out. It's like having a newborn all over again. She'll be 2 years old on the 30th so I know it's a little early for a toddler bed but she is my only child to figure out how to climb, jump and fall time after time from her crib. Stubborn little thing!
