It must be the holidays or something because I am feeling the busy.

Congratulations to Rebecca Irvine, who won Jana Parkin’s beautifully illustrated book “What Think Ye of Christmas?”. It’s available for sale through Jana’s site if you’re interested in getting your own copy.

Clark rode a sled down the mountain in our back yard and crashed into our house with his head.  He got a concussion, and after the CT scan, we discovered he also had a skull fracture.  His guardian angels must have been working overtime that day because, other than the big shiny black eye, he has managed to come out of it unscathed.  It could have been so bad.  I’m so glad he’s okay.

Matt took Natalie to urgent care tonight, and (go ahead, take a guess . . . . ) she has ANOTHER urinary tract infection.  Only she got this one while she’s been on antibiotics for over a month, so ???!?.  I’m assuming this means back to the children’s hospital we go for more testing.  Oh yay.

Over on Cocoa’s blog, she has an excellent download available.  I used it to create a one-page document with scripture readings for every day of December– Christmas Advent calendar style.  You can click here to download it if you want a copy.

Things get crazy, but I love Christmas time.  It’s for lots of reasons, but partly just because I love Jesus Christ, and I love it when the world pays more attention to Him.

I had my annual exam with Dr. Ladyparts today and survived.  I may or may not have held back tears when I got weighed.  (I don’t have a scale at my house and I really did not want to know.)

If I could create a fictional character to really put my heart into this Christmas, it would be a laundry fairy.  Sorry, Santa, but I have real needs.  And most of them require wands and such.

Can we make a little December pact?  You have permission to ignore my blog.  And so do I.  I anticipate a significant slow-down in blogging to compensate for the acceleration of so many other things. We’ll still love each other next year, right?
