Hello, I hope everyone had an amazing Thanksgiving and a good St. Nicks day. It's been a while since I've been on here. It's a busy time of year. I'm not very good at keeping a schedule to blog, that will have to be on my New Year's resolution list. I've had quite a few projects lately and I realized the other day that I probably only put on somewhere between 30-50% of what I do on this blog. Boo. I wish I could share everything with you, but I just don't get how mothers do that. How do you have time to actually do work/project/craft, take step by step photos of it, edit the photos, upload them online and then write a blog about it? Like every day? When you have kids? I don't get it. It's not possible for me to, I'm not wired that way and I'm trying to accept that. But I will always strive to be better and do better, because I AM wired like that...so the battle continues.
We had a nice Thanksgiving at my house. I carried on my favorite Thanksgiving tradition. I rolled out my giant bean bag out of my office, parked it in front of the TV and watched the Macy's Thanksgiving day parade curled up in it, with my favorite little guy. When I was a child I use to bring my plastic blue bean bag from upstairs and do the same thing. Things are just a little different now because my bean bag had a serious upgrade. (This thing barely fits though the doorways!) And now I get to share my beanbag with someone special. I am so very blessed to be able to do that, and everyday is like Thankgiving for me because I am constantly thanking my maker above for all of the blessings he gives me each day.
As far as St. Nick goes. I am completely baffled by this. St. Nick didn't come to my house growing up, so I have no idea who he is. My husband has simply told me that we must put little gifts in our stockings on December 5th. I do, and I don't question it, but I really don't want to. I think that Santa is enough of a stretch for me as a parent and why must I convince my son that there is another Santa like character that comes in December? I don't like it and it feels wrong. I've been meaning to google the whole tradition and see if I can make sense of it, but I haven't found the time. If anyone wants to explain to me their version of St. Nick in the comments below, I would love to hear it!
What are some of your Thanksgiving and St. Nick traditions?
