Busy working mom, just trying to juggle family and work, and constantly trying to keep God in the center of our life, and find and create balance in everyday life. I'm addicted to Diet Coke, thrift stores, and spray paint. This blog is a mix of family and amateur home decorating on the thrift. Glad you stopped by!
Meredith is really getting into Christmas. Each year, she understands more and more. Will...well, he is 18mos, and just likes to rip the ornaments off the tree.
I bought Meredith a small Christmas tree. I gave it to her before I could buy any of those mini-ornaments. But she went right to work decorating that tree!
She really did all of that by herself. The girl has an eye for design :)
M has not liked Santa at all since she was little. So when the pre-school had Breakfast with Santa the other day, I chose not to be there when pictures were taken. I thought she might do a little better without me, and thought maybe peer pressure would be a good thing. And I was right. The girl sat on his lap and told him what she wanted for Christmas. I couldn't believe it. Just a few weeks ago we were at the mall, and there was NO line for Santa. And she clung to me even when Santa was at a distance. So when I saw this picture I almost cried.
Now all she talks about is Santa and she wants to go see him again. She said she wanted to call him, too. So I called my brother and asked him to be Santa. I gave her the phone, and said Santa was on the line, and her eyes got as big as saucers. She talked to him for a few minutes. (all while me and Mike were laughing at David) All she keeps saying is that she wants a baby doll.
Now for Will. Well...to say that he is a 'fraidy cat is an understatement. I'm not sure what's going on with him. To be 'all boy', he is scared of the most non-scary things. But him and Santa don't get along too well
