This is just the best month for the Nielson family!
We love to celebrate every single day in this glorious month.
We ate the cinnamon rolls I made a few days ago and sat on my bed,
snuggled up to watch Ichabod. It was such a cozy evening!
These days are so different, and I just don't feel like I'm the same
fun mom as I have been before.
I really want to keep up
all the fun traditions we've done, but it seems harder
with fewer bodies around.
I just miss everyone.
I told Claire yesterday I didn't think I was going to do Christmas cards
, and she was like,
"WHAT? You're the queen of holidays and festive things".
I felt bad.
I'll change my mind.
Claire will be home for the holidays, and Jane will be right
behind her in January!
Just when I thought everyone was asleep
and the house was dark and quiet; Gigs came into our room
with his giant scorpion to show us how much he's grown.
I turned on the lights and let Gigs put him on my bed
and I ooohed and ahhed at how much he's grown.
Then he wanted me to hold him, and that's when I said,
"Ok, Gigs, go to bed; that 5:30 alarm comes mighty early."
