December Already?

I cannot believe the last time I blogged was September 14th!  I have no good excuse other than we have been crazy busy since moving.  I really don't even know where to start.  We love our new house and more importantly we love you new neighborhood.   Today Maiya asked me what I wanted for Christmas and I told her that I have everything that I have ever wanted and she just looked at me confused.  I told her that all I wanted for Christmas was for our family to live in a neighborhood with lots of kids and friends and we have that now so I don't need anything.  She said "Aww, but I want you to have a present under the tree!"  I though it was pretty cute!

The kids are doing great!  They both love school and are doing very well.  We are in full swing of the holidays.  I am room mom for Maiya's class and I was so nervous at first but I am really enjoying it.  I also love that I get to volunteer in Andrew's class once a week and that is a lot of fun and very rewarding. 

Andrew celebrated his sixth birthday last month.  We had a party with his new friends and I think he had the best time ever.  He tells me all the time how happy he is that we moved here because of all his friends.  

Our house is fully decorated for Christmas including outdoor decorations.  This is the first time we have actually done outside lights and the kids were so excited to help.  Now I just have to get my Christmas shopping done.  I did venture out for Black Friday and that was fun, but a lot of what I need this year wasn't apart of the sales, but nonetheless is was fun to get out there. 

In the even that you don't hear from me until after Christmas I want to wish all of my friends and family a very Merry Christmas and A Happy New Year!  I hope that your lives are blessed and full of love!  I know mine is!
