|Every day, maybe 20 times, Kjel pulls Merit into her lap like this. Most times, Merit screams her head off. Ha.|
The problem is that blogging isn't part of my regular routine. I don't have a "Blogging Time" time set aside each day. Gotta fix that because I am heartbroken over the chunks of time that my journaling and blogging was simultaneously scant. Whole sections of life, gone! Ah, the travesty.
Anyway, here are some little things about December that I want to remember.
- Today was a snow day. I love snow days. We had so much fun and I will post about it soon, but two things especially delighted me today. The first was that Gage and Kjel independently asked for "Jammie Days" and I of course agreed. They don't want or ask for them often - both of them are very good at getting up and getting dressed in the morning. But when it's stormy they always want to stay in PJs. So cute. The second delight of today was coming downstairs after I'd gotten the babies down for naps. Gage was in the bathroom, and Kjel was in the kitchen, singing her heart out to The Twelve Days of Christmas. There is NOTHING, I repeat, NOTHING as darling as my little four-year-old soprano belting out, "FIVE GOLDEN RINGS!" at the top of her lungs. All alone. In the kitchen. With her safari animals surrounding her.
|Gage has worn this Santa hat EVERY DAY in December!|
|My brother sent us this AMAZING box of meat, cheese, and treats. Want to know something? I ate ALL THE TREATS. I told my kids they could maybe have some later, and then I ate every one! Sometimes I am disgusting. ;)|

Merry Christmas to you! I checked my blog stats for the first time in years a couple of days ago and became so curious -- who ARE you? I am sure we are friends, or would be if we lived close to each other. Maybe we are family or already good friends. Maybe you knew me in high school or college, or know my husband. Or maybe you just randomly found me and became interested in my life. I don't have HUGE readership, but I do have very consistent readers, and I would love to know who you are and how you are. How are you? Are you having a good December? Do you celebrate Christmas? Do you have children? Ha. You don't have to answer that. Just know that I'm thinking about you, and hoping that you're having a great day!
