Lots of snow melted today
AE_DecemberDaily2013PromoThis Monday was the day where I felt how the stress of this season catch up with me, I got a few things done around the house, I rested a bit – but most of the day I was grumpy and sorry for my self. It was not pretty. In the evening as we sat down in the sofa (so LOVING having a sofa to sit in – it’s really been too long without one!!) I saw the light from the computer on MT’s face and remembered that we still needed a photo from the day. I might feel a little bit out of sorts, but MT was so happy –> he had no homework to take care of, not until next year. He has been happy about that for days – still are!

As I write this, I feel so much better, I’m working on being totally OK with not getting everything done like I want to and how we usually do things. I might not have the kitchen finished (= my mom’s things packed and our stuff put where I want them) or room to think (or move) in the bedroom (it is filled to the ceiling with boxes, looking forward to move a few of the furniture into other spaces once those spaces are empty) or all my furniture in working order (there are still one sofa up and tables stowed together, I might get some of it moved – but for sure not everything – before the holidays rolls around). BUT I will celebrate it with MT and with our extended family and we will get things in order eventually – and that is what matter when I think long and hard about it. And, honestly, celebrating Christmas is most of all about a little child that once was born that hold the hope of the world. (and very little about clean kitchen, baked cookies and gifts wrapped beautifully (although that is fun things as well, off course!)).

One of my favorite Christmas songs:

December tradition

AE_DecemberDaily2013PromoLast year we gifted both of MT’s cousins a visit to a great indoor swimming pool with us + going out for pizza afterwards. We went with one of them this summer and on Sunday we went with the other. Yay! I think they both had some fun. MT did for sure. He loves any visit to the swimming pool, but the perk of bringing one of his favorite cousins along was sure something he really loved. Makes me glad.

I did not take lots of photos, the day was such a wirvle wind of happenings (I do have a couple more that I won’t share here for privacy reasons), but this is a little peak into our day.

Thanks for coming by.
Do you have a December tradition that makes for extra happiness?!

Farm House | DecDaily day14

AE_DecemberDaily2013PromoI love Saturdays. They’re my favorite days, even on those where I’m not feeling all that good as I wake up.

Mostly because I get to sleep in and goof around for a while in the morning. But also because that is the only day where both of us are at home. We tend to do a few things together; eat, talk, watch a movie, walk in the woods, take photos and more!Β In the early afternoon we visited my parents and ate leftover dinner, after MT had spent an hour outside playing in the snow.
