Things are going well. We're as busy as ever keeping up with the kiddos and all their extra activities. On my busiest days I make 6 trips a day running kids around. Yes, they're busy kiddos and that makes for a busy mamma. I've been doing pretty good at keeping up with them. We've gotten into a good routine and I'm learning how to manage my energy and I'm learning when its time to stop.
A couple of weekends ago my brother and his wife came from Nebraska for the weekend. I was SO excited for their visit. They have 2 little girls that I adore and I want to spend all the time with them that I can. We had a wonderful weekend! The weather was beautiful. We didn't do anything very exciting. Mostly just hanging out at my moms house visiting and playing with the kids. It was fun to have all the cousins together. They spent hours and hours playing in the sandbox at my parents house. The kids (and my parents house) were constantly covered in sand.
While I was recovering I spent way too much time watching Netflix and not enough time reading. I did finish one book though, (Mrs. Lincoln's Dressmaker) I really liked it. It was an interesting perspective on the presidency of Abraham Lincoln. The next book I'm reading is The Last Letter from your Lover by Jo Jo Moyes. I adore Jo Jo Moyes. She's one of my most recent favorite authors. I'm going to try to spend more time reading and less time on Netflix in the future...(please, ignore the fact that as I type this I'm watching an episode of Everybody Loves Raymond, yep, on Netflix). I can't read and type at the same time.
While I was recovering (toward the end when I was feeling a little better) I decided to create a few scrapbook pages...just for fun. I don't remember the last time I created a project just for fun using the products and theme that I wanted too. It felt so good! I'm going to make it a priority to do that more often. Here's one of the projects I created. I used lots of brand new goodies from the Paper Issues store. This project primarily came from the Gramercy Road line from Gossamer Blue and the Crate Paper Open Book collection by Maggie Holmes. I think these collections are adorable! I loved working with them It's a different color palette than I usually use but it was fun to do something a little bit different.
- Do you send out Christmas cards?
- If you do send out Christmas cards do you make them yourself or do you buy them premade?
- If you send out Christmas Cards do you include a photo(s)?
