And To All A Good Night (Or Morning If That's When You Read This)

Oh look, I have a blog!
It would seem that I had forgotten that small fact.

My life has been one eternal round of projects and lack of sleep.
Since before my little sister's wedding almost two weeks ago, I haven't been to bed before 2 am and it long ago caught up with me.

This morning I tried to put a glue gun in the fridge.

Here's a picture of one of the projects I've been working on:

I've done one other one but already gave it away for a birthday, and I have two more to do before Christmas.

Before Christmas I have a quilt I want to finish for Em, another project to figure out how to finish for my brother and his wife, and a top secret project I've been helping my sister with.

I gave myself the deadline of having my Christmas cards out by Thursday - I guess sleep can wait another night.

And as for our girl ...

She's not spent even a minute sick this winter -
She spends most days wandering around the house opening as many doors as she can-
She giggles a lot, for no reason-
Her love for Mickey Mouse Clubhouse has reached new depths-

She woke up from her nap yesterday and was still a little bit grumpy.
She and I snuggled for a few minutes and then she spotted the remote control.
She got out of my lap, walked over and picked up the remote control, and brought it back to me.
She looked at me and then looked at the TV.

I turned the remote on and the minute the TV screen turned blue she squealed and started bouncing.
She gave me the biggest grin and then settled back into my lap to watch Mickey Mouse come up over the hill.
Once that part is over she is happy to wander off and find whatever mischief she can get into.

I can't believe Christmas is in a week.
It was exactly a year ago this week that we were taking Emily in for open heart surgery.
I can't even begin to express how grateful I am to be home, chasing after my busy little girl, instead of in the CICU of the hospital.

I'll be back to write a Christmas post, but after that I'm taking a little break to soak up the love that fills my home every single day.

Aww it's adorable how excited she gets over Mickey. Kind of like how excited Chloe gets whenever she notices the gate for the stairs isn't up.

You're so crafty! I'm very impressed. But I must say, that darling of yours is even cuter!
