While I showered and dressed yesterday, the kids hung out in our bed and watched something on TV. They love cuddling in our bed, as you can see, and wanted their pictures taken. For some reason, when I take Caden's picture lately, he smiles so big his eyes are completely squinted shut in the picture. I don't know why, but it is hilarious to me. While I thought CeCe was also on my bed, I discovered her in the bathroom going through the drawers for treasures. She ended up smelling of Clinique Happy all day long. At least, some version of Clinique Happy, but since it's been in my possession for years now it doesn't smell quite right!
I am overloaded with school work right now. I have several papers to write as well as a few presentations to put together plus a ton of reading to catch up on. I've been sick all week, so I have had a hard time motivating myself. I am feeling a little better today, so hopefully I will make some progress on all of my projects.
I am not sure if I've shared with you yet about any of my Christmas projects, but for today I'll show you our Jesse Tree. Well, I'll show you the beginnings of a Jesse Tree. If you follow the links, you'll find some information on what it is. It is basically an advent tree, but it's a really fun way to do it. I am working on making a bunch of cute felt ornaments for ou
r tree. They're so fun and easy so far! The kids have really been into Bible stories lately, so I think this will be a fun way to show them what Christmas is really about. I know this isn't the best picture, but it does show a few of my favorite ornaments. The manger, the coat of many colors, the stump and the tent. I can't wait to find our trees this year, also, because the kids are super excited about Christmas. They don't remember it (at least, I don't think they do) from last year, so this is really fun this year for them to be excited about all the lights, and trees and decorations!
Well, I'm off to read more "Lost in Translation". Have a great day!
