little gifts [858 - 885]

Hello and Happy Monday! Can you believe Christmas is less than one week away?! How did this happen?! Where has the time gone?! How do the days just slip through my fingers faster and faster each year? Goodness sakes.

This week I have plans to make some candies, help a little three year old decorate a gingerbread house, play with friends, and soak up every last day before Christmas that I can. I love this time of year and am trying to enjoy each bit of it and soak it up before it's gone and we have a whole year to wait for Christmas again. hah.

I'll start this week with some little gifts and be back tomorrow [probably ;] with some stories from my weekend. eeesh! Anyhow, here we go . . .

858. walking inside our warm home after a long, slippery, and treacherous trek to the airport

859. laying down two utterly exhausted boys for bed

860. two boys resting heavily against me

861. a friend who sends her husband and daughter to my house to fix an ever chirping smoke alarm when Landon is away

862. all the presents wrapped and tied up with string, resting under the Christmas tree

863. a surprise package on my doorstep
