I feel like I say this every year but really, December already?
With an Autumn packed full of newborns and family photo shoots, we’ve been hustling through the weeks and approaching the Holidays (Thanksgiving and Christmas) at full speed.
I am so glad we slowed down for a week and enjoyed some time with Jay’s family in Virginia and Florida this past week.
Driving to Florida, even with stopping in Virginia, is way overrated. I think without kids it would be no problem but with one little girl who cries in the car unless someone is holding her hand or unless she is asleep, it is torture.
Disney this time of year made the torturous road trip worth it though. It really was a magical visit that both kids enjoyed. I have added photos to my personal Facebook but I will share some here when we get back home. You can see the excitement in their eyes and smiles.
We are currently a few hours from home, I wish we could just time warp and be there already. I can’t wait to snuggle our cats, do laundry, sleep in my bed with my pillow, and get back into our routine.
The next few weeks are going to fly by and soon it will be Christmas. I have a handful of photo sessions to fit in before Christmas and a handful of completed sessions to get in the mail.
And throw in a CF check up and a visit or two to the feeding and swallowing center.
My brain can’t handle it all. Looks like I will be spending some quality time with my planner.
Nathan’s medication and treatment routine got out of whack while we were on vacation. We forgot his Zyrtec, sometimes didn’t wait a full 30 minutes after giving Prevacid to feed him, and sometimes forgot his bactrim. I feel guilt but can’t wait to sterilize everything and get back on track.
And as for Christmas preparation, I don’t feel unprepared. We will probably go pick our tree next weekend and then after we decorate it we can relax and enjoy the twinkling lights. We are not going overboard with presents this year since our trip to Disney was a huge part of their Christmas presents.
