Life here has been busy and I'm just wanting to be caught up with the house. There always are so many things to do, but I love it when I feel I'm proactively on top of my home instead of reactively trying to catch up with all that needs to be done. We have been doing some rearranging/organizing these past couple weeks and I think that is what has put me behind. We moved Isabelle back into Jakob's room. We moved the office upstairs. Steve built a shelf in the garage for storage and we moved some items out of our basement storage room. We are hoping to clear that room out enough so the weight set is visible/usable. We have moved other furniture around to accomadate the room changes. It is great to get these things done but it is stressful. I can see all this organization that needs to be done and other household chores get put on the back burner and don't get done. Hopefully I can get caught up this week and be ready to enjoy Christmas.

What a mess!! So much fun though to spend the evening with my favorite little boy.
Of course Jakob did not want to make stars or trees, he wanted to make swords. He showed me how he wanted to put the popsicle sticks together and we worked together with the glue and glitter.
Here is a Christmas Project I did this last week. It looks so great when it is all lit up. When I finished it the kids and I went into the downstairs bathroom, lit a candle, and turned out the lights to see our Christmas pictures glow. Fun time. Love doing projects that the kids can enjoy.

Below is something I saw on Becky Higgins blog and had to copy her idea. I had the "M" so it was only a matter of printing the photos and tying them on. How simple, but I love it!!
