It's That Time of Year Again!

It's hard to believe it is almost Christmas time.. Over the past week or two we have been trying to finish up our Christmas shopping and settle down. I love Christmas. I love the excitement of going downstairs to see what Santa brought, seeing everyone's smiles when they open their gifts, and everyone just hanging out. Hope everyone has a safe holiday and a happy new year!

Take Time..

to appreciate what you have!
This time of year can be joyful and happy, but stressful and gloomy to some. We all are running around frantically trying to get last minute gifts, trying to cram for exams, wondering why the kids won't just cooperate for one day, and so on... but, the best thing about it all is that we have those worries! Thank God for another day, even if it is going to be stressful at times.
When things get tough, then that is when you have to believe even more!

Mr. Talkative

This week with Jalen has really amazed me. Over the past week, his vocabulary has grown to the point he suprises me with some of the things he says. Earlier in the week, he told me something was soft, which I had never heard him say on his own before. He truly amazes me on how quickly he picks up on things!! He is gearing up for Christmas. He has a Christmas movie with Elmo and has been watching it non-stop. I just finished wrapping up his gifts, so we can see how many times I have to re-wrap them before Christmas. :-) Hope everyone is doing well.
