Stitches and Broken Bones

Happy Late Thanksgiving and with the way I'm getting around to blogging I might as well say Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

Things are crazy. Brian fell at work and broke his collar bone in three places a few weeks back. So he will be off of work for about a month. At Christmas. Which is bittersweet. I also have two weeks of at Christmas, but darn if the money wouldn't have been nice!

And last weekend my William who is four, decided to split his lip open and get four stitches. He took it like a champ though. I was totally amazed!

I am done with my Christmas shopping. Wrapping is 90% done, decorations are all up. But baking hasn't even started!

So until next time.....Stay busy!
