Gabe slept until 8:30! The kitchen was clean before he woke up. What a nice start to the day.

I sorted through piles of things- organizing, putting away, etc.

Gabe took a nap from 10:30-11:30. I sorted through piles of laundry- washing, folding, etc.

Had lunch with a dear friend I don't get to see often enough. We ate Mexican at a place I hadn't tried before, laughed, shared and caught up.

Did a bit of grocery shopping.

Got our first Christmas card of the season and wondered if there would ever be a remote possibility of our family card being the first one of the season for someone. Probably not.

Made my grandma's Kale soup.

Took a trip to Target.

Ran to Marvin's to buy our Christmas tree. We did a "tree rescue" again this year. We check the trunk and make sure the tree looks healthy, but we don't open the netting until we get home. It looks like we got a pretty tree. The branches are still falling out. We'll see in the morning.

Watched Elf while we ate the Kale soup. Grant had some hot chocolate and we all had candy cane oreos.

Everything did not get done. I still have piles to sort through. I still have laundry to wash and fold. The kitchen that was clean this morning is not clean anymore, but it was a good day.


  1. Kitchens never stay clean...
    and really, that is OK...
    they just need to be wiped often enough to be healthy.
    Sounds like a good day!

  2. Sounds like a great and busy day. Amazing what you can get done when your baby sleeps late. I can't wait to meet him. So many reasons to plan a visit.
