*****Random Things*****

Oh how time flies when your having fun. I can't believe that its December already and my little girl will be experiencing her first Christmas. I remember last time this year I was so excited and happy to be pregnant but yet so scared of giving birth and going through that whole experience. I was so scared all the time that I would dream about it and think that I was going to die from the pain of birth. Little did I know that my little one would come out via c-section and the pain would be barely there.

Flash forward to now. How exciting life becomes when you have a little one to care for. Who wakes up each morning with a huge smile on her face and smooshes her face into yours giving you her baby kisses. Now the hard part is trying to figure out what to get a 7 month old for Christmas??? hmmm.

Well I have decided that this year I am not going to make anything handmade for gifts like I usually do. This is simply because I don't have the time and well I have way too many projects that I have started and have yet to finish, so to start a new project would be INSANE! I still need to decorate the house and put up a Christmas tree so I know that is going to take some time. Time which is limited when you work 40 hours a week and then come home and want to spend time with your family.

I hope that everyone is enjoying December and not worrying about all the things that aren't done or can't be done. Just enjoy it! The weather has cooled and a new season is here.

I read a quote somewhere on a new blog that was inspiring to me, the blog is Enjoying The Small Things. This is my new favorite blog!! but she writes that "It's not about the wood floors, No. Life is about love and truly experiencing the beauty we are meant to know". If you read this blog this lady's second daughter was born with DS and she didn't know until she was born. Her blog is truly an inspiration on life and welcoming what is given to you. But the whole wood floor thing got me because I hate my ugly tile floors in my house, just like she does, and they drive me nuts, but to think that that little thing would bother me when there is so much to be happy and thankful for. That to be annoyed with something so stupid as tile floors is ridiculous because memories aren't made on wood floors or tile floors, no they are made with experiences and love and laughter and everything else that is life.

So I write to babble on and give some inspiration to someone out there. It could be worse, it could be better, but it is what it is and just enjoy it for what its worth!

P.S. Maybe my dad will read this and not have an argument with my mom about the cost of paper towels versus coffee filters. :-)

Ok, for some reason I missed this one post. I love it. This is what Joey and I have realized in the past year. There is no point in wallowing in your self pity because you can't keep up with the Jones'. Simplify your life and take pride in what you do have, not what you want. Thank you for the refresher at the start of what can become an overwhelming season!

Enjoy your first Christmas as a "family". It is the start of something amazing. Don't forget to make your own unique tradition that Hannah can pass on to her children. Happy Holidays Patricia
