We finally picked out a tree this past weekend and spent Saturday putting up decorations and re-working the living room around where the tree was going to stand. Our little house feels crowded these days with 2 growing boys at home for the holidays. We have craft projects a-go-go, all the papers from school to sort through, Lego that trickles it's way from the bedroom to the bathroom to the living room, and the instruments have made their way out of the closet and into the open for frequent 'concerts'. We are having fun all cozy in this little house of ours, reading 'the Chronicles of Narnia' and 'Harriet the Spy', watching all our Christmas movies, making sugar cookies, and doing some knitting. Just the sort of stuff I've been dreaming about doing over my holiday.
