Gratitude for the present moment and the fullness of life now is the true prosperity.
― Eckhart Tolle
Getting pumped for Christmas! I always get so excited waiting to give the kids their gifts that I can hardly stand it. I have gotten the family DVD done, my year end photo book done and ordered, gifts bought and wrapped...mostly. I love this time of year. Today I am doing a bit more decorating with my mom and then going on a cookie baking marathon. I love my tree, the music, the smells...but mostly I love how I have been far removed from everything else lately except for my own home and family. October was so crazy and hectic. I will never do that to myself or my husband again. I missed so many little things and time goes too quickly for me to do that if I don't have to. But in November I had to be down a while for some personal health reasons and that time shut in really made me enjoy minding my own business basically! But there is work that has to be done and I enjoy that too, I just will never over extend myself like that again. HAHA that has to be my resolution for 2013. Say NO! Put your own home and family first!!!
Just wanted to post another favorite of mine from 2012.
They look like such shifty people...or a band. I love it. Truly one of my favorite shots of the kids ever. It was Seth's 7th birthday party and our aunt had gotten him and inspector outfit while I had gotten them 80's retro neon sunglasses as party favors. This one has to go on the wall.
