Just a quick update, as I haven’t blogged in a while. Thanks for all your supportive comments on my last post. Things are on a pretty even keel here these days. No big meltdowns, not major incidents - just our steady, regular efforts to maintain routine and consistency in an unpredictable world.

Tonight we are going to the Christmas Concert at Lucas’s school. Then on the weekend Jama has her Christmas pageant, plus we need to get our tree up and go see Santa. Next week is the last week of school, so I have to get my butt into gear with making the teachers gifts! I have them all planned out, and I have most of the supplies, I just need to sit and craft away. I really like crafting though, so it’s not a chore, it’s just finding the time.

I still haven’t decided what we are giving the boys for Christmas. It seems all they want is video games, and I don’t want to give them that. So I am waiting for inspiration. I am running out of time though! I am sure some great idea will come to me.

If I don’t make it here again before the end of the year, I wish you all the most wonderful of whichever holidays you celebrate!

You're right. Video games is a no-no especially for the youngsters nowadays. I suggest you give them educational toys or those that will enhance their knowledge like mind-games. Or might consider toys that will exercise their body like skipping ropes, and the like...This is good for the young and the young-at-heart.

Well glad to hear that you are back and making posts. What are some of your boys' hobbies? What do they enjoy besides games, if anything ;) Maybe I can give you a few suggestions
