Merry Christmas

MERRY CHRISTMAS to all of my friends!

Starting tomorrow, I'm going to be UBER busy!  Suffice it to say, I won't be around to do any posts.

Our home is looking a lot like Christmas right now.
Even if it doesn't feel like it.
Is it just me, or has the season snuck up on everyone else, as it did me.

Among the Christmas pretties, this is what the rest of my house looks like.


Sink full of dishes, even though I've already done then about four times today!
I can blame it on Christmas baking but my sink isn't usually one of those that you find empty.
There are usually dirty dishes of some sort in it.

Yeah, this is from cookie making.
And the computer was for recipes, blog hopping, you know all that stuff.
That glue gun - crafting.
Christmas cards on the counter - THAT NEVER GOT MAILED. 

Amidst me doing other things, the kids get to destroy my house.  This is a small 2x2 foot section of my living room.  I'm not crazy enough to show you the rest of it.  Let's just say, the kids like to bring ALL of their legos, army men, guns, books, hot wheels, pillows, you name it, to the living room.

We usually do a power sweep through before dad walks in the door from work, but it doesn't last long.
Like the kitchen sink, there are ALWAYS toys on my living room floor. 

And the kids' room.  Here is Parker's!  He likes to pull all of his toys out and not put them back.
The good thing is that if I help him, he does like to help clean up.
I'm lazy and tired tonight though so his room stayed looking like this until tomorrow.
At which time, we'll be swamped with Christmas, gifts, guests, yada, yada, yada.
It won't get cleaned I am sure until....Sunday.  If I feel like it.
I'm just being real!

Oh are two crafts that I worked on today too!

LOVE my SUBWAY ART from Makia Creations!

This holds a 4x6 photo with the aide of a miniature clothes pin.


{there might just be a  tutorial in the near future for this project}

There you have it!

I pray that you all enjoy the season and don't forget the reason!

I too almost always have dishes in the sink. Or around the house because I carry cups do my kids. I have them pick up 5 things in the living room before I let them play. When I say just 5 things...they don't mind. Isn't that funny? Connor is the worst about picking up. Go figure. THE BOY! HA! Sage is only 2 and she doesn't mind.
Love the crafts you did! I will have to get the craft from you and just keep it for next Christmas!
