I don't know about you but I find the holidays exhausting. My family celebrates both Hannukah and Christmas and my youngest is a December Baby. Even though I usually have all my Christmas shopping done by the end of November, I find the month of December to be especially crazy.
This year I have spent weekends on planning Juliet's 1st birthday party, decorating the house, sending out Christmas cards, wrapping presents, getting new products into production, and we have yet to get a Christmas tree. That's on the to do list for this weekend. It feels like there is no down time.
Don't get me wrong, I love this time of year. I love decorating the house and now that Ainsley is older we can all get excited about Santa's visit. This year, I will be getting my tonsils out too so I will either get more rest due to this surgery or it will make the whole month seem even more hectic.
Add some sick children into the mix and I look forward to a more relaxing January. Maybe a few snow days are in order so that we can all stay home for the day and hibernate.
