Merriest of Christmases!

Don't be worried!! I am OK!

However, I HAVE become the world's lamest blogger.


(however, as opposed to the boredness that is what I write, you MAY prefer the silence. I digress)

It is Christmas Eve Eve!

It has been sooo busy, what with all the prep and programs, and millions of things Kyns had going on with school, and all that is a kindergarten Christmas. She actually missed her last 2 days of school because of a snow event. It was like 2 inches, but here in southeast VA that IS an event!

This year I did almost all my shopping online on Cyber Monday. (Does that sound creepy to anyone else? .. maybe) Between Target and Amazon I did pretty well. Target gave me a bit of a headache by sending me emails regarding a few bargains that ended up out of stock and unavail.. and then some that were set to ship nail bitingly late. But, it was MUCH better than dragging out a 5 year old and a 5 month old and driving an hour out to get caught up in the mix of a crowd. So, I'll take it. :)

Luke is 5 months old, and rolling everywhere! And he is SO close to sitting up unassisted. He can do it on the floor, but not somewhere soft like the bed. And is adorable. If you know how I can post a video, let me know. His laugh is ah May Zing. And only his sister can get him going good. In Example, the other night, making oreo truffles, he was in his bumbo and she was dancing on the kitchen floor. Hilarious.

See all the nothing I am talking about.. to avoid talking about the what I am talking about. (did you get that?)

B got into the Pastoral program.

House on the market January 1.


Like, I said. Merry Christmas!

And finally.


Thanksgiving was amazing.

I nailed the turkey. The biggest one EVER. and all the Thanksgiving ETC was good as well. The fam was there, minus the Father in law and stepmother in law. Missed those two! And of course we ate too much, the kids got too spoiled and then there was a nap. Legendary Thanksgiving day.

We are SO blessed.

Still no official word from ABC but B talked to the student liaison we have been in contact with and he said he thinks we will have the initial acceptance in the next week.


Initial Acceptance Defined- Acceptance pending vaccinations and deposit.

Double Eek.

So I am glad we talked Pitts into Christmas decorating early since we are pretty positive this whole thing will come into fruition. Back to work, today. I love my coworkers- they really make me smile.

Not as much as Mckynsi.

She went to the Santa Shop at school yesterday and came home with all sorts of thoughtful fodder. I love that kid. Much like her Mother, it kills her to keep a surprise a secret so we all got our sweet gifts last night. I got a bracelet with a heart that has a frazzled angel on it. And a pencil that smells like cinnamon. I am the luckiest Mom. Ever.

We went to Williamsburg on Friday. We stayed with some friends. As usual, Williamsburg was beautiful and we took the ferry-- always so fun. The only sad part o the holiday was the loss of our Nanny Peggy.

She lost her battle with cancer and is now at home with our savior. So happy/sad. Kyns is taking it a bit hard, but we are making it.

It seems like there was SO much I wanted to update you on.. but I guess I can catch up when I remember. Hope you are well, also.
