Good morning! I don't know about you but my alarm went off way too early this morning. Instead of working, though, I wanted to write a little here first.
James turned 12 yesterday! TWELVE. Oh man. Can't believe it. He had his two best friends over last Friday for a sleepover and a visit to Rockin Jump. They all had a lot of fun and were exhausted when we left.
Yesterday morning he woke up early to open his presents and then sat in front of the tree and started on his new Minecraft Lego set. This year for Christmas he is asking for Legos, Nerf Guns and books. (well, and a laptop and a headset with microphone but those aren't happening.) :) It feels like the end of Legos may be near but who knows? He just discovered the Minecraft ones and really likes them. Anyways, it was all very sweet.
I got our house mostly decorated last week, it took forever, and we still haven't done the ornaments on the tree. I think we will after school today. Patrick told me he likes it all, it looks cozy, but he thinks he likes our Halloween decorations a bit better...just all the little stuff I set around. That made me happy. I know the kids appreciate it but it makes me feel good that he does, too.
Yesterday I went into Nick's room to help with gingerbread house decorating. I love being around that much candy!! :)
