December Days

It has been a minute since I posted. I have been trying to get back into a groove, but it has not been happening. Not much sleeping for me lately and that has led me to having migraines outside of my normal pattern. The lack of sleep has also dulled out my desire to play The Sims and even scrapbook. I made a few pages a couple of weeks ago around Thanksgiving. School was out for a few days, so that meant we were just going with the flow of life and I got ideas I needed to make into layouts. Holidays are probably the hardest for my to scrapbook about. Mostly because now we spend them with our little family and we keep things extra low key. We will share a meal together. The kids and I have a few shows and movies we will watch together and then everyone just does whatever. Christmas is probably the better out of any that we celebrate. I actually like playing with the new toys with the kids. I always try to find a few games that we can all enjoy together.This year will be different since baby boy is older and now understand more.

Last weekend he repeatedly bugged me until I got up to help with decorating the tree. It was cute though. He and his big sister decorated as much as they could and I finished it up. They got distracted with other things, of course.

A year ago was our last Christmas in Wisconsin. I wanted to make it special because I just had a feeling that things would be changing soon.  I bought baby girl a dress to wear for their Christmas concert and I flat-ironed her hair for the day. She enjoyed getting dressed up for the day since we don’t do that very often.

Then, another layout I made the other day focuses on Christmas a few years ago. It was baby boy’s first Christmas and it was when he was an actual sleeper (lol).

Oh how I miss those “baby” times! I may have felt like a milk machine, but life was so good. More sleep, normal dinner time, play time was fun with both kids, and there were even moments of quiet. Now, everything has a bit of chaos. That is life though!

*Note: Both layouts are linked to their gallery posts where you can find all of the items I used to create them.
