Staying In

Today I was very brave.

After picking up Blondes from school I ventured to Target with all four chickies in tow.

I prepped the older girls and reminded them about staying near me and being helpers. I reminded them that we were only going to exchange an item and get small gifts for their teachers. I knew that we wouldn't be able to handle much more than that.

It ended up being fine - other than Roo absolutly refusing to let me put Rosie's car seat in "her spot." We made it out in 30min with gifts, very little whining, a baby still fast asleep, and no tears.

A Christmas Miracle!


I'm really fine with chilling at home these days though. Christmas music, cinnamon candles, advent pockets to open, stockings hung, treats and fresh oranges on the counter, nativities around, packages arriving at the door, and a twinkling tree make home a magical place these days:

Plus being home means we get to do things like make wish lists.

ps. Christmas cards will be out this week. Yay! They turned out so good considering we did the pictures ourselves self-timer style. I miss you April and Mandy!!!
