This year the boys have had a couple of chances at making some Christmas crafts. I love doing crafts...but not when my house looks like a bomb went off! So this year the house is in better shape, and the craft supplies came out. After seeing how much fun the boys had, not to mention how serious they were in planning their creations, I felt bad that it has been so long that they had free reign to be creative!
We went to a craft fair and the boys had a blast! I only wish we were able to spend more time there since it was a short fair, and we got there late. I planned on taking pictures, but after pulling out my camera to snap the first one of the day I got that lovely little message "no card" flashing on my screen. Sigh.
It has been unseasonably warm here, and yesterday for the Christmas parade it was a whopping 75* out! The parade was fun. The boy's whole reason for being there was to see how much candy they could walk away with. The baby was in love with every dog that went by....please, NO, not *another* animal lover ;-P We got home, hot and tired.
But there was some work to be done. We have started pulling up carpet. We seem to have a serious mold problem in our house. The carpets are not the cause, but I can assure you they are only adding to the problem. Since that is something we can actually work on, that is what we did. I was quite surprised by the amount of work Jonah did! That kid really and truly worked and worked and worked until the job was done! He moved furniture in and out, he pulled up staples, threw carpeting out the window, vacuumed, etc. The other boys helped as well, but here and there. Jonah was like the Energizer Bunny! One room done, as far as the carpet up. I have a bunch of things I want to wash before putting it back in the room. I need to find my diffuser, I had just seen it somewhere, so I can start diffusing Thieves oil.
Praying we will slowly start to see an improvement in how we are feeling.
