It Went Too Fast!
I get so excited when my kids are out of school for a week. I don't know why, because now that they are older school isn't the only thing that keeps them from home. They have friends and activities and if that weren't enough, time just moves so darn fast!
I did get to see more of them than usual. I am glad I enjoyed it because with the last two weeks of the semester and finals, I probably won't get any quality time with them until they are finished!
I miss when they were little and this time of the year was just magical for them. Now, they help me decorate and for some reason that just doesn't seem as much fun to them as they thought it would be when they were little! They would try to help me, bless them. It was fun, I wanted them to be a part of it and have the memories, but now that they are actually more useful they are less enthusiastic about it! It went from exciting to work. We don't decorate as much as we used to but my sister has moved back in to her former house on our street and I have teased that she makes up for it.
She has five kids ages 15, 13, 10, 8, and 6. They are the Smiths, but for the next few weeks we have renamed them the Griswalds. Christmas Vacation is still one of my favorite movies. They were worried about having too much, but when you have kids I don't think that's possible!
I am adding to my Etsy shop while trying to make it look like Christmas here. My Thanksgiving sale is still on through tomorrow with 15% off each item. I have added 3 new pieces. I thought they all three turned out really pretty especially the earrings!
