Merry Christmas to all, and to all a good night

So I'm laying in bed, using my brand new iPad. Fancy schmancy, I know. Apparently I did something right this year because my awesome hubby thought I deserved this! We had an awesome Christmas this year, aside from the fact that the boys and I aren't feeling well that is. Of course that didn't stop them from enjoying the last few days. Sam must have said "wow" more times than I can count. It never ceases to amaze me how incredibly simple things, are just wonderous marvels to my sweet little ones. Oh to be young again!

I hope you all had a very blessed Christmas and got to enjoy some quality Imelda with family. I know we did and it is something that I love, and look forward to every year. Don't forget the real meaning of Christmas, this year and always. Our amazing Lord sent his son to die for us, so that we can have the most amazing gift there is, eternal life in heaven with Him. Simply amazing, the love God has for us. No matter how selfish and greedy we get, He is still there, loving us more than ever!

Merry Christmas to all, and to all a goodnight.

What we are going to do today

I love Pinterest. I sit on that site for hours,[usually] after the kids go to bed. I was just browsing it while the boys are playing "ice skating" in the kitchen (they are pushing the chairs around to their little table. Apparently that's ice skating) and I realized, I have a board named Christmas is coming. With a few ideas I wanted to try and some recipes to make.

 Well, Christmas is less than a week away and I have yet to do anything on that board. So today is the day! Today is the day I attempt to make cute little ornaments of their little 1 and 3 year old hands. Today is the day I make cute little pretzel snacks, and possibly even some snickerdoodle cookies. OK, so maybe I am being a little over ambitious, but hey I am going to accomplish at least one of these things today!

Wish me luck friends. Are there any cute Christmas crafts, or yummy Christmas treats you have tried and would like to share? I am always open to fun and tasty ideas!

Why I don't blog more...

When I started this blog I was hoping to get into a regular routine, blogging every couple days at least and getting involved with my readers. Then... my computer died. We have no desktop computer anymore, my laptop has no battery and has to be plugged in to be used. I try and go on it often, but it overheats and it only lasts about 20 minutes before it shuts off.

My husband just started school, so he bought a beautiful new laptop. But, of course, he is always on it doing school! The only time I have the chance to get on it is during the day. During the day I have a very energetic 3 year old and a 1 year old that is SO needy, so needless to say I don't get much time to sit at the computer and write to you!

So now you know, if I am not around for a couple days, don't think I forgot about you. Chances are I am busy playing doctor with my 3 year old or getting my 1 year old out of the freezer for the 50th time that day. My oh so exciting life :)
