|Excuse the mess here!|
The kids both had a blast on Sunday, opening their early presents and spending all day fighting over them. They were thoroughly overwhelmed, and both declared it bedtime at 6pm! The countdown is now on to when we visit my family - 16 sleeps! We always use sleeps when we countdown, as Bubba seems to understand it better. Word on the street (facebook) is, snow has fallen where my family live, and more on the way. I really hope it sticks around!
I do love Winter. I shouldn't love it - high winter is when insomnia peaks, I suffer SAD until February, I am reminded just how 'alone' we are from our families - but there is something magical about it. I have only ever had 2 really bad winters where nothing made me think life was worth living for, which is a pretty good record given my amazingly poor history of being happy any longer than a couple of months at a time.
Oh, and my crochet-mojo has gone AWOL. Again. I may also be about to break my no-baby-knits rule.
'Tis the season!
