daybook ~ December 21st

Outside my window ...
it is suuny, but cold.

I am wearing ...
my usual sweats and a t-shirt ... we aren't going anywhere today.

I am hearing ...
Silent Night - sung  by Celtic Woman

I am going ...
to try and get my house cleaning done today so that I can enjoy doing some baking this week.

I am noticing that ...
I need a new plan for organizing the kids' rooms ... our current plan isn't working very well.

I am thinking ...
that this week is going to fly for me and drag for the kids!

I am reading ...
Washington's Lady by Nancy Moser.

I am creating ...
a couple of sewing projects for the kids ... hopefully I will have pictures to share soon.

I am remembering ...
Christmas traditions from my childhood that I would like to share with my kids.

I am thankful for ...
electricity and central heat. 
Ours was out for a little while last night and it didn't take long for our little house to get cold.  I may be just a little spoiled!

On my mind ...
trying to make this week fun and memorable rather than hectic and stressed.

Words that I am pondering ...
Luke 1 and 2. 
 It may seem trite, but I don't want to get so caught up in celebrating tradition that I just read story and forget that this is so much more.

From the kitchen ...
LB has been begging to make and decorate sugar cookies, so we will fit that into the other things we have to make like cheese crackers from a new recipe from a friend at church and probably kind of cookies the boys can help me make.

Around the house ...
mostly just the usual cleaning and laundry to be done.

A few plans for the rest of the week ...
a little more shopping to be done, but nothing too pressing.  We will spend Christmas Eve with my family at my parents' house and then spend Christmas Day at home.

One of my favorite things ...
the time spent getting ready for Christmas morning after the kids are in bed on Christmas Eve.

A picture to share with you ...
LB's favorite Christmas gift ever ... her doll Maria.
