"They keep telling us that Christmas is right around the corner, but which corner is it?" Aware of the joke, and fully on board to continue running around like mad, Henry suggests,
"I'm not sure, but how about we go check all the corners upstairs?" And just like that, those three hyper bodies bound up the stairs to continue their search for Christmas.
She's right, you know. Christmas is right around the corner. Feeling a little bit of rush myself, I want to update the good old blog here with some of the activities we've enjoyed this season.
About a week ago, we went with our friend Peggy and the Cordingley family to Willard Bay to see the Christmas lights. Of all that we've done, this probably stirred up that Christmas spirit inside of Mom the most. Cuddling up with the kids on a freezing cold night, in a horse pulled wagon, to look at a spectacular display of lights really brought back that Christmas magic.

Holiday crafting is a new tradition that Eliza and I have been dabbling in. When the other kids were in bed, she and I busted out my new friend, the hot glue gun, and got to work on a few 'homemade' gifts. We spent two nights together doing this and as cute as our projects turned out, it was an even better reminder that the best one on one time I have with her is when the other Fleglets are asleep.
"And please bless Eliza to do a really good job reading at school today. And please bless all her snacks when she eats them." It really does make my heart happy when my kids remember one another in their prayers.
And finally, a few 'randoms' to add because these photos make me happy; except for the fact that I'm short on Henry pictures. We'll have to remedy this!
