The holidays are always hectic in our house. It usually starts in October when I begin making presents for everybody. Every year plan on getting presents done long before Christmas and every year I am working on them right up until Christmas or our family get togethers. I enjoy making the presents, so next year I will once again attempt to get the presents done by the beginning of December. This year everybody came to our house, which is nice in most ways (no travel required), but it is a lot of preparation. I love preparing food, so that isn't a problem, but the never ending cleaning is never fun!! In two weeks I cleaned the house 3 or 4 times. My family came in the weekend before Christmas, then my husband's parents came in Christmas and left the following Sunday. They usually stay a couple days, but wanted to give hubby and me a night out without the kids. The night out was great and it was so nice to get out and not have to worry about the kids. We went to dinner and stopped at a couple stores to look for things. Then we had some friends over New Year's Eve to celebrate the new year. It was a good time, but now hubby heads back to work tomorrow.
I'm a SAHM to two active children and have been married for over 10 wonderful years. I love to sew, embroidery, bake, read and spend time with my family and friends. I'm also enjoying setting up some gardens around our new home.
