So- my bro informed me yesterday that I haven’t blogged in awhile. alas. And since I have no creatively amazing juices flowing, I think I’ll make this another randomania…starting with my new favorite Christmas music. A few weeks ago I bought a lot of new songs and was mostly leaning towards the folky, artsy music but Pentatonix snuck into my list and I love them.
Thanksgiving was wonderful. We had a full house for a week and seriously it was magical. Having a lot of our close friends together at the same time for a holiday is super special…it does help that they are all in the same family. We just named our son “Regan” so we could belong to the Regan family :). hehe So, now I am recovering…by laying on the couch a lot and wiping a baby’s nose a million times. I’m so tired we haven’t even gotten our tree yet- it’s rather appalling to me that we will just barely make the December 1st deadline for Christmas decorating.
I would like to publicly announce that I might be almost finished with Christmas shopping. Yet, it’s soooo hard to stop myself…Josiah is so easy to buy for and perhaps because Regan is so young, I don’t feel like I need to make their gifts “even”. Last night I showed Bart an electronic fish in a bowl and lamented that I couldn’t get it because we’d already gotten Jos a guitar, stuffed animal and a doctor kit…his response- “just get it- it’s $15…that’s like two lattes” HA. I have already decided that Josiah will get his swishy when it arrives- don’t want to overwhelm the kid on the 25th.
Yesterday I was lamenting that there are no drive-thru Starbucks around me and it’s my one complaint of New Jersey. But today my husband has a breakfast meeting near one and is bringing me home a mocha in between clients. I’m so lucky…delivery starbucks is one step up.
I promise Christmas and house pics sometime in December. I still haven’t taken a good Christmas card picture of the boys…so that should tell you how behind I am.
Can’t wait to see my parents and sister in less than a month!!!
8 days until my birthday. YESSSSSSSSS!
