The most wonderful time of the year

Things seem so crazy right now. I don't know if it is because of the holidays or just because life is life or just a combination of both. The house is a royal mess and we are going to be celebrating Christmas Eve here with Hubby's family. I think his brother and their family may even be staying with us overnight sometime this week (I usually don't find out until they are on their way down).

So there is a little stress there. The good thing though, is I am done with everything that has to be done for the holidays, with the exception of cleaning the house. I'll probably just do it the day before everyone arrives.

K has started this thing that he only wants me, "nowandnowandnowandnow."

For those of you who need translating that is, "Now and Now and Now and Now and Now."

I know a lot of it has to do with me giving in, but sometimes, honestly it is so much less headache if I just pick him up. The funny thing is that half the time I tell him that I can't pick him up usually because of my back, and the next thing I know he is in my arms. Though, I think I should consider myself somewhat lucky. Many kids don't want their parents to cuddle with and I know he won't want me to do that forever.

B will be out of school for three and a half weeks starting this afternoon. I am excited yet, I don't know exactly what we are going to be doing during that time. I know we will figure something out. He really wants to go to the snow, so maybe we will have a snow day. The last time we took B to the snow I actually took him out attempting to teach him how to snowboard. We will just have to give it another try this year.

As far as the knitting goes, I have one sock finished and two almost ready to have the heels turned.

I started another Jaywalker when I left this one at my parent's house. So in addition to this one and the twin that is being worked, I have one that I am working on as my travel project.
