What to Do During Naptime?????
Well, this is what we did during Ben's naptime today. We put up our Christmas tree!!!! I know I am little behind most people but I was concerned with Ben trying to pull it down on him and while that may still happen I couldn't let my girls down. Elisabeth informed me the other day that "We are the only ones not getting ready for Christmas". Our town really does it up for Christmas. The lights start going up right after Halloween. It is so neat to see the little town where we live lit up for the holidays. I do have to admit putting up the tree made me a little sad. I firmly believe that you need to listen to Christmas music while you are putting up your tree. We were listening to an Amy Grant Christmas album with I'll Be Home for Christmas on it and it occured to me that I won't be "home" for Christmas. This year we are staying in Minnesota and not traveling back to see our families in Kansas. I am looking forward to starting traditions with our family but will miss the extended family get togethers.
On the knitting front, I working on various projects at once and not making any outstanding progress that warrants a picture just yet. I did start a sweater for Elisabeth maybe I will finish by Christmas but probably not.
