The Annual Christmas Vortex

I love Christmas.  In fact, I love it so much that it makes me love the entire month of December and all the insanity that goes in to it.  I love Christmas lights and decorations, candles, our tree, shopping for presents, baking special cookies, and now the excitement that goes with Harry’s appreciation of the […]

First Day of Preschool!

I can’t believe this day is finally here!!  I have been dreading the first day of school for quite some time, and it really snuck up on me.  Of course I couldn’t sleep the night before, then in the morning instead of pressing snooze I turned my alarm off, so we had to hustle a […]
