I am having troubles posting pictures, but I thought I would give you a bit of an update on my weekend anyway. Even if I could post pictures I wouldn't have any to show you because Elise is currently on a weekend getaway, to Swift Current, with Josh. I got to do FaceTime with them before supper tonight and it sure was cute seeing that little face smushed up to the screen as she gave me kisses! She seems to be having a blast and I hear she is on her best behaviour for Auntie Nikki, Uncle Caleb and little cousin Samuel!
I sure miss those two when they are gone but this weekend is a crazy one! On Tuesday however, everything comes to a grinding halt (well, except for the piles of marking I will have to do!) Ahh, as much as I love teaching it sure will be nice to have a couple months to spend with Elise and get ready for a new little bundle to arrive.
I can't decide of two months feels like a long time or just a little. I'm already feeling ready to burst, but then there is a big part of me that is happy to keep things just the way they are for a little longer.
Elise always seems to get a big burst of energy an hour before bedtime. Tonight was no exception. This little girl has been racing around the living room, throwing toys for the dogs to chase, climbing all over Jack (who has been especially lazy tonight,) and getting into just about everything!
I hope this means a good sleep tonight!
The last time we were at the grocery store Elise brought a box of fruit loops to the cart. As far as we know she hadn't tasted them before but she was sure convincing! We compromised and bought her Fruity-Ohs (the cheaper brand.) how could we resist? She's just so sweet!
We got a surprise visit from my brother Steve tonight. He is working tomorrow close to Kindersley and all the hotels were full so he got to stay in Eston instead!
It's hard to believe it is December again! When I look outside I can believe it, but when I look back it feels impossible.
It has been just over a year since Elise had her last surgery. The one I refer to as: the surgery that made the crying stop! Last year I didn't decorate. No nativity scene, no tree, no stockings or advent calendars, not even a little snip of holly. I was exhausted and really not feeling very jolly.
This year just feels different.
