Let me just start this post off by saying this has been a very busy month (who am I kidding? More like a very busy six months) for us, as I'm sure it has been for many of you as well. So this is sort of a catch up post, a there-I-jotted-it-down-post if you will.
Last weekend was like every other weekend this month in that it was crazy busy. We had children getting over sickness, birthday parties, two Masses, I could go on and on. But one of the prettiest events we went to this past weekend had to be the hot air balloon festival. Of course the food was overpriced and we were ill prepared, but the entry fee was reasonable and totally worth it.
Seeing this many hot air balloons up close was really something! And Fritter and my dear husband took a short ride up in a tethered balloon.
We had a really nice visit with my mom while she was here. The kids love being spoiled by Grandma.
What is a little Christmas preparation without making cookies?
I love this time of year. It makes me smile every time I get a Christmas card in the mail. Ours will make it out sometime before Christmas (I hope).
My girls are both very funny girls. There is always some amount of hilarity going on in this house.
Our Christmas preparations are in full swing. There are boxes and bags and little pieces of string here and there. It all just adds to the excitement, right?
