I've already made my first batch of home made cinnamon rolls and delivered some them to some special friends around town and about to start on Batch Number 2 for my BIG, FAT FAMILY. I finished knitting all of Lila Kate's hats and am almost finished knitting Olivia's blanket. OH...and I have also started a FUN NEW PROJECT (I know...as Hubby would say, "Just what you need...another project!"). I am keeping an ART JOURNAL! I'm actually not stressed out right now and I must say it feels good. Now, saying that, things could change at any moment, especially with 13 people staying at the same house AND a new baby to be born any time between now and the 26th. That's the UPDATE, y'all: Sarah's due date if the 24th (That's TOMORROW!!). She will go in to be put on a monitor to make sure the baby is OK and not under any stress. If everything is OK and she does not go into labor by herself, the doctors will induce the morning of the 26th at 5:30 a.m.
Pioneer Woman's Recipe. You should definitely TRY IT!
Tonight Caitlin, Kevin and Holli will be getting in and tomorrow the FUN WILL BEGIN! Everyone else will filter in throughout the day and early afternoon will find us attending a Christmas Eve Service at our church, followed by our Annual Cookie Cook-Off. I know that this time is going to fly by so quickly that it will simply take my breath away. And that is why I am determined to STOP. Take a deep breath. RELAX. And ENJOY THE MOMENT. Because these times are what is important in life. When everything is all stripped away FAMILY and the MEMORIES made with them is what is really important in life. I hope you enjoy your time during the holidays and make the very most of it.
