why can't i be a bear?
Pictures above are of a muddy outing to the playground last week, and of S doing a little crafting.
The snow is really coming down as I write. It looks beautiful, but the roads are slippery and I'm happy to be home. During winter all I want to do is stay home and watch tv/read/craft under a blanket. Unfortunately these two dudes maintain their same energy level year-round, while mine dives to that of a hibernating bear for this season. It is so hard for me to walk around, cold, and get things done during the day. So not a lot gets done. But I think it's enough. We are still eating off clean dishes and wearing clean clothes, so I consider us in good shape.
Nate and I are re-watching 30 Rock episodes. Last night we saw the one where Tracy enlists Frank and Toofer to write his biography. He mentions that one summer he made a Christmas album and then sings this song:
Imagine Christmas wishes, shooting out of your eyes.
A candy cake full of snow dreams,
A stocking full of smiles.
It's a Jordan Christmas!
Then Frank goes, "Oh, I remember that. That video was really raunchy."
That made me laugh. And then I immediately decided I have to do an embroidery project based on the lyrics of this song, possibly only the first line. It will be a Christmas decoration. And it will be perfect. So look for that in about five years.
The advent boxes informed me we are down to single-digits. Nine days to go. I am nearly ready... just a few more things to wrap. What about you guys?
