End of the Year Catch up

I find it pathetic that it has been over almost two months since my last post. And it's not like I haven't had things to post about. So I'll cram it all into one just to catch up:

Bromley is getting bigger and into everything. Having a puppy with kids is much harder than when Callie was a pup.

In anticipation for the new Tinkerbelle Pixie Hollow Games movie, Camryn and I made a fairy house!

I'm happy to report not only does she still play with it but its still in one piece!

Fall clean up of the yard was actually enjoyable this year. Dylan was a big help and the leaf piles were fun for the kids and the dogs!

I got a job!!! I'm working as a paraprofessional at the middle school in town and I love it! Never have to worry about missing out on anything with the kids because I only work they are in school. It's the perfect balance for me.

Thanksgiving came and went because we jetted off to the Bahamas the following morning!

We had a fabulous vacation and much needed family time. It was great to be together and the resort was amazing. Lots of laughs were had and lasting memories were made!

Came home and immediately had to get into the holiday spirit. We got our tree and decorated our house the day we got back. I scrambled to fill their stocking advent calendar (Dylan already pointed out we had missed a few days while away.) I threw together a Christmas card and began the hunt for the perfect gifts at the lowest prices!

We entered the local gingerbread contest with kits we decorated in less than 30 minutes and Camryn came in second for her age group. The entries were pretty impressive and next year I plan to bring my A game.

John and I hosted our friends' annual ornament swap. Good times had by all!

My nephew was in his first live production of "It's a wonderful life." We are enjoyed seeing him in the spotlight.

We baked breads for all our teachers, made cookies for Santa and pretzelies to bring to school.

The countdown has come to an end and we are all anxiously awaiting Santa's arrival. Tonight will be spent in a wrapping marathon and tomorrow we will be tracking Santa's flight around the world.

Regardless of the chaos and exorbitant amount of money spent, I'm looking forward to some QT with the family during the holidays.

Well that about sums it up....

P.S. My New Year's resolution is to blog regularly, so stayed tuned for a detailed account of my week off with the kids!!
