Back to School?

Yes, for my little four year old! He'll be starting school for the first time just after the holiday. I just can't believe it is already time for school. I know he's ready and I think I'm ready but here it is regardless. To help me cope, I knit. I found an adorable pencil case pattern from Debbie Bliss and I am knitting two. One for his dear friend Ms. L and one for him. I just hope I can get them done before the bell rings! Do they have bells in preschool?

Crazy Christmas!

Once again time has flown by and I am left wondering what day it is today. Perhaps it is because my boys (4 &2) continue to keep me up at night rendering me nearly unconscious the following day? Or maybe because I am 4 months pregnant and cannot find the extra time this go around to sleep? Or it could be that it is 3 days before Christmas and I still need to buy gifts, wrap them, assemble a jungle gym for my monkeys (again, I mean the boys), blah, blah, blah... I know everyone feels this way during this time of year, but it is still loads of fun. I love getting my sweaters out for the few short weeks we actually might need them here in the desert. I love knitting until my hands are numb and I cannot find another person to knit for. I love baking a new batch of cookies everyday until New Year's. I really love being pregnant this time of year so that I don't need to worry about a single pound I will undoubtedly gain. And when the whoosh and swirl of time and emotions this holiday season is finished and I am looking toward 2010, I think I will be grateful that I filled my days with sweets, yarn and toys!
