Today this sweet, sweet baby is six months old. Six months! And his handsome papa is celebrating his own birthday.
We are almost ready for Christmas. I have completed most of my ambitious list of handmade gifts. A few things were scratched from the list and that's fine. I got the things for our extended family finished, which had a hard deadline. My own children will receive one less gift apiece on Christmas morning but I think my list was too ambitious, and there's always Three Kings Day for those final things.
I'm feeling considerably more relaxed today, having finished what I really needed to last night, which gives me today and tomorrow to just relax and enjoy the time with my family, reading our favorite (as well as new to us) Christmas books and baking some more cookies for Santa. I promise, once everything has been gifted, to post photos of everything here. I'm pretty amazed by how much I actually accomplished!
I wish you all the merriest of Christmases, full of peace and joy and full hearts.
