I've felt super spacey today. I'm having a hard time focusing and holding on to thoughts. I should probably just go to bed. But there are a few things I'd like to remember and write about now because if I don't then they'll be gone.
I made a select few Christmas cards this year to send out. After I addressed them, I was sad I didn't have one for my Gma and Gpa Clark. I have one for all the other gparents (greats to our kids), but not one for them. Every time I drive up Center Street in Orem, I feel the same way. I miss them. It's strange knowing I won't ever sit on their couch again or venture down into the basement with its vibrant green carpet. I miss their smiles and their hugs.
E is lots of fun. He built various creations with our tissue boxes about a month ago. Yesterday when I was prepping dinner, he asked if he could play with the spice carousel. I set it on the table for him and he went right to work getting creative. Such joy.
We had a great time hanging out with PNTHK while they were here. E and H were fast friends and got crazy together pretty quickly, as young boys are wont to do. I loved seeing them hold hands as they sang "Jingle Bells" on Temple Square. H was singing the Batman version while E kept repeating this line over and over: "Jingle bells, jingle bells, all the way to Bethlehem."
We rode frontrunner up to see the lights. It was such a warm night that I was in shock. It was really crowded but we still had a good time.
Well, I better get to bed. Merry Christmastime. It's getting more and more fun each year to decorate and anticipate holidays with the kids. E and H have loved the lights on our tree and have loved "decorating" our home for Christmas.
