They started putting up the roof on Mom and Dad's house yesterday, it's looking good. Here in the farmhouse we started decorating for Christmas. Lights and greens and music... it's starting to feel festive around here. I have also started sewing some Christmas gifts and preparing others. We do very little retail purchasing if we can help it. The kids are also working on ideas for their ornament swap ornaments. Tonight we will set up the creche and maybe watch a Christmas special on Netflix. The kids are very excited for Christmas and our upcoming trip to CT and to moving into their rooms when my parents house is finished, quite a month coming up!
I am a stay at home, homeschooling mom to 3 crazy kids, and wife to a husband who puts up with us all. We have a 120 year old farmhouse we are sure will take just as long to renovate, a one acre garden and too many animals! I am trying to live a slower, simpler life without being dependant on material things, and teach my children to live in a manner that is pleasing to God. Our adventure is challenging but rewarding, and I wouldn't change it a bit.
