Move over Rudolph!

My mom came for the weekend and stayed till yesterday so I am just chillin out today. She washed and folded and put away all the clothes, cooked enough food for us to have lunch AND supper until we leave for my sister's on Sunday, and a whole hodge podge of other little but important things! I got most of my Christmas shopping done, bought some major things for our new house, finalized ALL the paint colors for the new house, had a security system installed, got estimates on flooring, wiped down all the kitchen cabinets in the new house, and even managed a date with my dear husband some where in the middle of all that! Is Christmas Eve really just a week away? Doesn't seem possible. But I think Santa's reindeer are ready to fly!Uncle Frank was in the area and came to visit one day last week. James and Audrey stayed in his lap most of the time listening to him read stories. The rest of the time Audrey was showing him how good she can walk and they both sowed him how to dance to the reindeer! It was precious and Audrey followed him to the door when he was leaving and wanted him to pick her up. It was obvious they didn't want him to leave! You know he loved that!

When we were at my cousin's a few weeks ago, they stood at those doors for 30 minutes watching their cousins play. It was toooooo cold for them to go out so the boys brought their puppy up to the windows so James and Audrey could see him. They went nuts, banging on the windows and laughing at the dog. It was great! Now what you've all been waiting so patiently for...........

Do you remember the first time you roller skated? Weren't sure about how to stop. That's what Audrey reminded me of when she was walking toward the camera. Gracious! They are so precious!

Glad your Mom came left you better than she found you. Moms are like that.

Christmas is going to be so magical with the children up and about and acutely aware of the goings-on. Hope your trip and your Holidays are perfectly stupendous, 'manda.
