Wow, I can't believe that we're almost into the second week in December! It's been chilly here..45 degrees! (I know some of you are saying, "That's nothing!") Yes, I realize that, but to me, that's cold!
No, we haven't trimmed our tree yet, we're usually late at putting that up because of work schedules and what not, but I am faithfully writing out my Christmas cards and have even played a Christmas CD or two. Now, some of you may enjoy sending out Christmas cards and writing them, but I do NOT. haha. To me, I don't want to just say "Merry Christmas", so it takes me a looong time because I personalize every one! sigh... It's just not in my nature to be surface-y with my Christmas cards. I applaud those of you who can!
This will be Garrett's first Christmas! I know it'll be fun keeping him from pulling all the ornaments off the tree and unwrapping all the presents....the joys of an 11 month old! We are so blessed by this sweet little man though. He is getting so big! he has exactly three teeth, and I know this not just from seeing them, but feeling them on my arm, or hand, or shoulder...he bites!! Garrett will be one almost two weeks to the day after Christmas!
Oh how this year went flying by, and what a joy he has brought to our lives. It is the hardest job and one that brings so much happiness. I cherish every day with this sweet boy. He is such a gift from God.
