The Countdown is On!

Oh no, not the Christmas countdown. I can't even begin the Christmas Countdown until the Mission Countdown is COMPLETE. So, I'm looking at 9 days until the big guy reports to the MTC. Essentially, that leaves 7 days to get everything done. I'm not even going to post my to-do list, but just know that it's crazy long. So, I will probably be pretty scarce until after Christmas. I hope I can post in order to document some events. But that may not even happen.

Yesterday was my #2 son's Christmas Choir Concert called Canticle in Carols. I forgot to take any pics or even attempt to record a song. I just soaked in the beautiful music and the peaceful Christmas spirit.

Tonight we have a super fun FHE (family home evening) planned with my family and some cousins. We are going to Crazymama's to decorate Sugar Cookies and write letters to Santa. Then we are planning to attend a short concert at the Temple where #1's alma matter is performing. After that, we'll go back to Joobs' to warm up with some hot chocolate.

Speaking of hot chocolate, E. just came toddling up to me with some packets of instant Cider that she scavenged from the cupboard and said "Cocoa?" Too cute! She's not a quick talker and this is probably one of her first 10 really clear words! So, of course, I quickly made her some cocoa. I love her tiny voice and sweet talking!

We have another concert tomorrow too! Sade tried out for a solo, had a call-back, and got the part! She has a lovely voice and some serious potential as an awesome vocal performer.

Another concert (Sade's orchestra) Wednesday, plus Young Women's! Visiting some friends (VT) Thursday! and our Ward Christmas party at Church on Saturday! Big B #1 speaks on Sunday, with an open house afterwards! Then leaving early Mon! Holy Cow! Could life get crazier? I'm sure it can... and praying it doesn't. HUGS to all!

Christmas is crazy and busy enough even without sending off a missionary. Good luck with getting everything done.

Although I always want pictures of everything, it's sometimes nice to forget the camera and just enjoy the moment. Sounds like that's what you did for #2's concert.

I'm thinking of you.
