Getting Back To Normal But Then Christmas Hits….

It feels so good to be home and getting back into my routine. Between my week in California and then our week and a half in Florida, I was only home for about 6 days the past 3 weeks. If you didn’t know, my weeks run Wednesday to Wednesday just like my husbands work schedule. It’s easier to keep life in balance that way.

We began out Christmas decorating this week and the house is looking fabulous! Of course, the kids want to decorate more outside now that we live in a neighborhood. I do not really want to try to get on our giant house to put up Christmas lights so I am thinking up simple alternatives that will keep them happy but also make the yard look festive too! When we are done (In about a week) I will make sure to share it with all of you.

It is also the time for our Elf, Felix, to make an appearance. That damn elf will be the death of me. His first day back, I forgot to move him and Delylah was very upset that he didn’t move. That is not the first time I have forgotten to move him and I’m sure won’t be the last. Our elf is usually very mischievous. I think I’m going to change that this year. I really hate leaving his messes around all day and then being the one to clean it up later. He’s going to be a good elf this year….maybe.

The past couple of years, I have been done with Christmas shopping by now. This year, I haven’t even started yet. With our vacation and my trip to California, Christmas wasn’t a thought in my mind. Now I better get on it because it’s coming and it’s coming fast! 25 days! Where did the year go!?

Are you ready?

Happy Thursday My Friends
