Project 365 {week 50}

I know I complain about how busy we always are.

But in truth, we live such a blessed life.

This week Eddie told me, “Mom, I love books.  They make me happy.”

And Cort finished college.

And Charlie sat on his booty by himself for the first time.

And I soaked in my boys despite all that is going on in our lives and in the world.

This was our week…

December 9: Making presents for the Grandmas and Grandpas

December 12: I am getting increasingly frustrated with postpartum hair. It's growing back, but now I have sprouts that stick up EVERYWHERE.

December 14: Our new tradition of visiting Santa and then going out for dinner. And yes, Santa made me sit on his lap. He was a naughty Santa.

December 15: Cort's graduation party with family. I was so busy this was the only picture I took: Eddie and Jack mesmerized by technology.

I have many posts bumping around in my head about the weekend’s tragedies elsewhere in the US.

But I haven’t separated myself from the anger and sadness enough to write about them clearly.

You will probably see my thoughts on them here and over at Borderless News and Views.

I will probably post about my faith this coming week.

And I have a sponsored post by BlogHer this week too full of Christmas goodies.

I also need to tell you about the Santa visit in my detail.

And of course on Saturday I will bring you another recipe.

Things will be serious and fun and downright ridiculous around here.

You know, like usual.

Hug your family.

  2. I’ve hugged my little and not so little babies a lot more this weekend. Like you, I can’t seem to form coherent thoughts about what happened on Friday. Thinking about it makes me cry. Your boys are adorable, as always!!! xoxo
