just a little behind

So, this is what I did today while the kids napped...


I've been wanting to take down our fall decorations and get started on the Christmas decor so badly, but since we are leaving for California on Saturday, I've been busy preparing things for us leaving the kids with their grandparents...not to mention finishing our Christmas cards and other have-tos, like MOPS stuff and a few other Christmas cards I designed for some friends. I do have to say that I am proud that I had my priorities straight because all the things I had on my "to do list before vacation" are now officially crossed off. I can spend the day finishing laundry, doing some last minute packing, and I think I might even have some time for putting up a few more Christmas decorations.

Although I am feeling anxious about leaving the kids, I am also getting super excited! I plan on having one or two posts ready to go next week automatically, so you'll still be able to catch up on a few things that I've been wanting to share. I also might try to post some pictures of our trip while we're in California. We'll see...

Hope everyone is enjoying the holidays! I'm a little sad that we'll be missing out on a full week of Christmas fun that I could be doing with my kids (and enjoying making some crafty things, too), but I know this will be a memorable time for me and my husband. I can't wait to experience Christmas at Disneyland. I'm sure it's nothing short of amazing!!

And, lastly, I've read so many fun blogs that celebrate Christmas all month long with a fun activity for each day (big or small), so this year because of us being gone, I've decided that when we get back, to help continue my love for the holidays, I will be doing 12 Days of Christmas with my kids. You'll just have to check back in to see what that means. We return on the 13th, which means there are 12 days until Christmas. Could it be more perfect?

Have a wonderful trip! I know how stressful it can be to say NO to the things you want to do (like decorate for Christmas) and do the things you have to do (like packing, yuck!). :)
