Oh my goodness, how is Christmas only two days away? I wrapped 98% of the presents yesterday (a few still haven’t arrived), so I know we’re ready for the big day even though I still feel like we have so much to do. Yesterday we took the kiddos to see Santa. It’s so much easier visiting the man in red when you know your kids aren’t going to scream when they see him.

Liam and Harper also joined us and omg, so cuuuuute.

Santa 2018

Merry Christmas to all of you who celebrate!

Coming Soon

As you all know, I’ve taken a break from blogging. I took a break from ALL writing, actually. I was really, really burned out and needed some space from my keyboard! The good news is that it worked – I miss writing and have started putting down little stories just for myself. I’m looking forward to blogging again and I’m going to go back to regular (as in, more than my Sunday posts!) blogging in January. I have so much to catch everyone up on. It’s been a very eventful year, in good ways and not-so-good ways.

Last-Minute Gifts

~If you have a bookstore nearby, Max Einstein: Genius Experiment is an awesome book to give to kids who love science.
~Anthropologie has 30% off EVERYTHING today. They have tons of great gifts to give to holiday party hosts. With some items, you can buy online and pick up in-store. Woot!

Happy Sunday and Merry Christmas, Happy Kwanza, and Happy Holidays to everyone!!!
