It's the Busiest Time of the Year
There will be much mistletoe-ing. And hearts will be glowing. When loved ones are near. It's the most wonderful time of the year.
And what makes it wonderful is sharing time with family and friends.
The holidays always make me think of family and this is one of the only pictures I have with my brothers and sisters all together, at least the seven of us all together. We had it taken for Mom and she was so happy. After all, she'd had nine kids and there aren't any pictures that exist with all of us. Maybe because Mom and Dad never owned a camera. Photos were few and far between. Any photos we had were always taken by friends or other family. So, this is a special picture.
And, today is a special day. It's Tammy and Steve's birthday!!! They aren't twins but that's a strange phenomena in our family: people share birthdays. My husband and I share a birthday and two of my kids share a birthday, plus my brother and sister share a birthday. Strange...
Anyway, I'm planning a party but it's hard to squeeze parties in at the holidays because it's a crowded calendar this time of year.
It might be the Most Wonderful Time of the Year, but it's also the biz-biziest-time of the year ;)
There will be last minute buying and parents a-sighing
as they rush to the store looking for "just one present" more. . .
Wednesday, after work, we went Christmas Shopping at Pioneer Place, then Nike Town, then Michael's and after that we went down Peacock Lane and off to Palio's for hot cocoa and that's just the tip of the iceberg. The holidays are rolling in. . .more like a tornado than a soft breeze but
I hope you're having a fun-filled season.
