Yes, life has been busy around here!
I've been busy filling Christmas orders...
Spending time with Dad and the girls while Aaron was gone on business...
(for some reason it's always been quite the task to get my Dad to smile for pictures...can you tell?!)
Cleaning "lipstick" (a.k.a. blue marker) off Clara's face...
and getting things ready for Christmas.
Ahhhh....Christmas. It is right around the corner! And so is the arrival of our little one. I closed my shop up over the weekend for this very reason. As a mother of young children,it is very important for me to keep my life balanced, especially at this time. I mean, I'M HAVING A BABY IN LESS THAN 4 WEEKS! Wow. I cannot believe it. I cannot wait. I'm so looking forward to meeting her. A new little daughter to add to our growing family. I feel blessed.
So, now you know why I haven't blogged for a while.
But I'm very excited about some things I've been working on lately...I'm making most of the girls' presents for Christmas this year. I'll have to share a few of them with you later this week. Let's just say I've been keeping my sewing machine busy, and the wood-burner nice and hot. Oh, I love this time of the year!
I hope you are all well!
p.s. check out this pic of Clara and Avery while scouting out our Christmas tree. Is that the peace sign I see?? Where did she learn that?? (Actually, I think she learned it from Naomi--gotta love that one, right, Yumiko??)
Life is good.
