I know! I have been… well, NOT here! And not on my usual blog patrol either. Sorry I just haven’t had time to check in with everyone, I am missing you guys. It’s gone from crazy to absolutely insane around here. So much stuff (good stuff but big stuff) coming up. I’ve started my own little countdown….
TWO days until my oldest kiddos come home for the holidays!! Tori and Zach will be coming in on the 20th… it’s going to be the best (and the craziest) Christmas ever. I can’t WAIT!!
THREE days until we have our family pictures taken! Yippeee! If you’ve ever had a family picture taken, you know I say ‘Yippeeee’ in jest. Truly. BUT we are having these done ‘professionally’… so I might be sayin’ yippeeee when I see the result 🙂
SEVEN days until CHRISTMAS! And NO, I have not gotten all my Christmas shopping done. But I am savoring this time, anticipating the joy of our Savior’s birth. What doesn’t get done just won’t get done. And that’s okay. If you are usually on our Christmas card list, before you get offended, Christmas cards are one of those things that won’t get done this year. As in all things, my excuse is that I have a lot of kids. That and the fact that my paltry efforts at capturing a picture worthy of actually paying to have printed on a card were, sadly, in vain.
I am, however, considering sending out New Years cards, depending on the results of our upcoming photo session.
……. drumroll, please…….
EIGHT days until I leave for CHINA!!!!! Yes, this IS a surprise. We thought we’d be leaving sometime in January. I am so excited that I will be able to travel with my sister to adopt her precious Cole!! And yes, she is in the process of setting up a site with Joe and Jen, so if you’d like, you can follow along! The link will be posted sometime before we go, promise 🙂
So put another log on the fire, it’s gonna be a crazy end to 2008!
