I’m just coming up for air after a ridiculous Christmas season and a month of sickness in our house. From broken ankles (I have a real problem descending stairs gracefully), to chest infections, to stomach viruses, we’ve really run the gamut of illnesses.
Christmas Day saw Adlai the sickest he’s been in his thirteen months. It was heartbreaking as his mama to see him so drowsy and unable to keep any food down, and I hated every minute of it.
That said, Simon made a turkey that would’ve made my grandma cry, and brussels sprouts that made me like brussels sprouts, so all was not lost. Also, we got some awesome Christmas presents, and this post is all about that!
Here’s to a happy and VERY healthy 2012!
This sweet canvas my brother-in-law made me for Christmas. He’s making one for Simon, too, so we can hang them side-by-side in our room.
This Super Adlai cape my friend Emily made. Simon has a matching one, but I haven’t managed to snap a photo of him in it yet. Look at this though! So cute. And those chubby legs ain’t too bad either.
This perfume Simon bought me. It smells like roses, but better. I’ve wanted it since 2007. (I have a never-buy-anything-for-myself problem.)
I bought Simon the box set of the films, and the past week has been completely consumed with watching them. Last night we finally watched the final one – the only one we hadn’t seen yet – and now my life feels empty and lacking in direction. What am I supposed to do with myself?
I know exactly what to do with myself. And it includes laundry and dishes and making nice meals for my boys.
And maybe reading The Hunger Games trilogy.
