Fall 2012
[learning to live a perfectly imperfect life]

Holiday Preparation

We've had holiday decorations unpacked,

and outstretched arms.

Balancing acts on chairs,

and delicate ornament placement.

We've had fun with photos,

and tree admiration.


(don't be too impressed... it was the pre-made cookie dough, and the pre-portioned cookie dough at that)

and book-reading.

We've had obsessions with Scotch tape,

(you know wrapping presents is much easier with the end of your tongue sticking out a bit.)

and name-writing practice.

Tree decorating,

and belly-laughs at Mom singing "Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer."

We've had successful lessons in teamwork,

and not-so-successful lessons in even distribution.

Moments of feeling a sense of accomplishment,

and moments of feeling togetherness and love.

We've had playdates with friends,

and sticky glue-covered fingers.

We're as ready as we'll ever be for Christmas!

Hope everyone has a great holiday with family and friends!
