The Wednesday Write Up

-This time of year is just plain crazy. I'm exhausted from staying up late trying to get Christmas orders done and it hardly seems like I'm making a dent in the list. To add to that, we are preparing for our annual trip to New Mexico. I'm totally excited to see everyone but I am absolutely dreading the drive. Who wouldn't be though. Fifteen some odd hours in the car, each way, with a three year old and a one year old. I'm cringing at the thought of it, so I just won't think about it. See, all better, not thinking about it.

-Preparing all these animals for me being gone is quite the undertaking.  I think I'm ready though. Feed is purchased and piled up, two round hay bales delivered, dog house made, heated waterers and stock tank heater working. I am so lucky to have a friend that will come over twice a day to run dogs, feed animals and collect eggs. Thank you Jessica, without you I don't think we'd be able to go on trips. Ever. Seriously.

-Greta is blossoming into a little girl. She's growing her personality and it's just adorable to watch. Her newest thing is waving nigh night. If you say it's time to go to bed she grabs her blanket and waves to everyone (including the dog). It just melts your heart. She's finally starting to cruise the furniture while walking. She gets up behind a chair and will push it around the hardwood floors. Wesley started walking at 15 months, she's probably going to be more like 16 months I'm guessing. Which is fine, I'll miss her little crazy crawl she has when the walking starts..

-Wesley's first Christmas program is approaching. His preschool teacher has been teaching them all sorts of Christmas songs in preparation. He sings them during dinner, while playing and even during bath time. It's freaking adorable. I can't even imagine how cute the actual program will be. We're hauling Grandpa and Grandma along. Can't wait.

That's all that's happening around here. Hope ya'll are staying warm!

I want to go to Wesley's 1st program. Can I whine again about being so far away. Maybe he can sing his songs while he's here. Can't wait to see you all.
