And then there were ten

Ten days till Christmas, and I have been losing blogging steam, and just steam in general. My plan to rest before the holidays has pretty much fallen by the wayside, as rest usually requires sleep, and sleep has been hard to come by. But we're plugging along. Today's advent calendar activity was supposed to be for the kids to make Christmas presents for some relatives, but it's been moved till tomorrow (or this weekend) when it doesn't seem quite so daunting. Hopefully Tegan is feeling a little more festive soon, since she's been been spending quite a good portion of her days being, well, grumpy and unpleasant. She's indescribably amazing and funny and beautiful and I love her, but I just had to announce to the world - or my two readers in any case - for the sake of total disclosure, that she's sometimes a grump, as of course we all are at times.

Still, we're having fun as we move closer to Christmas. The past two days I've been playing with my own new toy, my phone, when I can get it out of the hands of the kids (who are absolutely loving all the free games I've been downloading)

And just to end on a happy note, here's a random, token picture of a (cheerful!) Tegan, snapped by one of the boys yesterday:

Just a week and a half until Christmas morning.

Oh my heck Jen look at those CURLS! Amazing!

The grumpiness *has* to be a girl thing. It has to! Ashlyn's the same way, so loving and cuddly, sweet and funny...

...and GRUMPY!!

Holy cow there are some days it really tries my temper. Ethan tries so hard to be patient with her, but there are some times he can't even handle it so he closes himself in his room to get away. Our poor girls, they mean well. They are just trying to get the hang of the emotional roller coaster being a girl is!!

Hate to burst your bubbles, ladies, but Joshie can be the biggest grump (and that's putting it mildly) that I've ever seen. Ain't a girl thing, but oh how I wish it were b/c then my house would always be pleasant! ;)

Add to that a nasty cold, and we're all grumpy. But better now than at Christmas right? Here's to happy days to come for all of us!
