About Me

My photo
I'm a work in progress. I'm a mom to two, soon to be three, awesome kids that have taught me things I didn't know I needed to learn. I'm married to a kind and handsome man that I genuinely love to be with. I like to be around interesting people and enjoy learning from others. I'm quirky, energetic, have a glass that's usually half full (of wine) and am spontaneous when it fits into my plans. My life is much slower than it once was and even though I sometimes miss the old days, I never take these new days for granted. So, I've given up alot of things in order to give more of myself to my family ... and they better appreciate it. I mean, I expect nothing in return for my selfless love.

We went to Hensler Nursery today to cut down our Christmas tree! Besides Mazie getting backed into by the horse and wagon, tripping over the tree cart and getting her finger smashed by some older kids; besides Freya crying in the field and shaking from the cold; besides all three kids melting down and crying on the way home ... it was great! Nate said we won't be driving an hour away to get a tree next year.

We had to rearrange the living room a bit in order to fit the tree in (they ALWAYS look smaller before you bring them home) and I 'bout hyperventilated. I have a difficult time adjusting to things being out of place ... I'm better than I used to be, but it still bothers me. I wish it weren't so ... Nate is good at keeping me calm and focused. Focus ... Focus ... Focus ... poor Mazie is just like me ... so sensitive to her environment.

ANYway. We sat around the tree and sang Christmas carols before bed. It was so sweet and made the temporary tree decoration chaos worth it. :)

I just have to tell you... we had a very similar experience last year- even went to the same place! We were trying to decide what to do this year since there aren't any good places close to cut. I was so torn, how can we NOT go cut our own tree?! Matt surprised me with a tree he picked up at Marsh this morning, and although I've went and cut my own tree for as long as I can remember, this year it was perfect :) I don't think we ever would have gotten one otherwise. Some years, you just go with the flow with little ones :)
