Time for Christmas?

Caleb: Is it Christmastime yet?
Me: Well, sort of. It's time to get READY for Christmas.
Caleb: Blink, blink.
Me: I know, let's get out the angels (advent calendar). Do you want to do that?
Caleb: YEAH!!
Me: That way you'll know how many days you have until Christmas.
Caleb (scrunching up his face): I don't want DAYS until Christmas!!

I know this is going to shock you, but things have been busy around here. I know, I know, but it's true. The good news is that I'm all caught up with my grades (for now), today is the last soccer game of the season, and construction is pretty much over for now (although we still have no deck). We also have a new member of the family. Emma is staying with us for the rest of the school year, and can I just say that I should have brought home a seventeen-year-old girl YEARS AGO?! She reads, she plays Candy Land, she helps with dinner, she sits with Nikki and looks for differences in pictures in Nikki's puzzle book. SHE ROCKS!! And since she is currently sitting in a tent made of blankets with my children, I actually get to blog! Yippee!!
