It has been such a crazy week for me! I don't really know what I accomplished but I was super busy. I have been feeling like a single mom lately, Andy has had a crazy schedule. So I have been trying to bring the Christmas spirit into our house even though Andy is not around much. One of my favorite traditions that we have has a family, is that we let the boys pick out their own Christmas Tree ornament each year. I write their name on it and the year we bought it. My hopes in doing this is that when they have their own tree someday, they can use their ornaments and hopefully bring back good childhood memories. So this year Seth picked out a dog ornament and Isaac picked out a shiny Santa Claus.
The boys had fun putting the decorations on the tree. I did have to move some of them around, they were all put in one spot on the tree. Such fun!! Seth has only pulled the tree down a couple of times. :-) Yes, right on top of himself. I am really glad that we just did a fake tree this year. If a real tree fell on him, I think he would have been really hurt.
It has been very cold here. In the last couple of days we have had an Ice Storm, and a little bit of snow. I can do with out the ice storm, but the snow is so beautiful. I love freshly fallen snow!! The cold has made it to cold to go out and play much. So I have been trying so hard to have Isaac do other things besides watch TV. I do think a little TV a day is not bad, but I really want him to do other things. Today I gave Isaac a bucket of Lincoln Logs(thanks to Jill for the L.L.) and told him to build something. This is what he came up with. I was so impressed with his building skills. I just had to take a picture of it. The sad part to the story is that when Seth woke up from his nap, he did what little brothers do best. He totally destroyed it. Well, Isaac did not handle it very well. He said "mommy I think Sethy needs to go back to bed." That is what he always tells me when Seth is bugging him. Oh, boy I have a feeling it is going to be a very long winter. I am just going to try to make the best of it.
