Christmas time

Well, Christmas  gotten away from me again this year.  my tree stands in the corner, undecorated.  my decorations half unpacked. I don't know why this happens every year. I get so excited for the season, and then get overwhelmed with everything it brings. Trying to organize parties so that we see all sides of the family. Making sure Lexi has everything she needs for her class programs and parties. Do I have enough teacher gifts? Have I done enough this year? in my mind, the answer is always no. We should have baked more cookies and done more family things. We should have done more to make lasting memories. It's all just overwhelming. Hence the reason I am up at 12:30 am blogging about it.
Speaking of blogging...I know I promised to blog more, and I'm trying to figure out how to fit that in also. please forgive any typos or grammatical mistakes, as this is my first time blogging from my new tablet.  here's a list of what I want/need to do.

*decorate tree
*more lights outside
*make cookies for the neighbors
*put together goodie bags for the teachers
*finish shopping
*wrap gifts
*Christmas crafts with my girl

Surely I can make that happen. 

What are your favorite holiday traditions?


  1. Don't worry so much about what you haven't done. Focus more on the memories that you are making!

  2. True! I did get the lights on the tree last night and the goodie bags made. Perks to having insomnia!
