Merry Christmas!

Phew!  I don't know about you guys, but I am exhausted.  I spent yesterday cleaning, and rather than feel good about it, I now realize how dirty my house was and I don't know how I am ever going to keep up with it when I have two kids!  Can anyone else relate?

Anyway, Merry Christmas Eve!  I am excited to have nothing more trying to do today than to whip up a few little things for Christmas dinner.  The rest of the time I will be sitting on my couch!  We plan on going to a candlelight Christmas Eve service tonight, and then spend tomorrow in our PJs for as long as possible.  :)

Wherever you are, I hope you have a wonderful Christmas!  You all have been such a wonderful (and unexpected!) blessing to me this year.  

I am taking some time off from blogging while my husband takes some vacation time, too.  But, I'll be back when he goes back to work on January 5!  Of course I will let you know if any baby news breaks (Get it?  Breaks?  As in water?  Wow, I must be really tired.) between now and then.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

Maybe Santa will bring you a maid.

Kris said...

Oh yes I can relate. I've felt like my house has gone into a downward spiral every since #3 was born last February. I'm still trying to recover!

I hope you have a Merry Christmas, a new baby and all other good things!

Merry Christmas...your house looks beautiful! And, I am sorry to report that it is nearly impossible to keep a house clean with 2 little ones. Mine are 2 and 4 and I have had to accept the fact that the dust bunnies will hide behind all of the toys. Best wishes for an easy and speedy delivery. Enjoy the time with your family.

Angie said...

Merry Christmas and enjoy your blog break!!

Our Complete Family said...

Carrie~ the table in the post below looks great! Everyone will love having you as the hostess with the mostest girl!
Our house is a wreck, too. It's harder with more than one kiddo, but oh my the blessings of babies far outweighs the dust bunnies~ you'll be o.k. sweetie!!! ;)
Enjoy the family time over the holidays!
xo, Les

Davene said...

Merry Christmas to you, too, Carrie!

It's been wonderful getting to know you through this blog this year. It's a gift to me!

I hope your search for the perfect baby name goes smoothly. Jeff and I had that same dilemma with our third son, but now I adore his name and can't imagine him with any other.

Enjoy your family time, and I'll catch you in the new year! :)

Jo said...

Wishing you and your family a very Merry Christmas. Relax and enjoy some time with your lovely family.

Fondly,

Hope you had a wonderful Christmas! I can totally relate to the house cleaning. My house used to be spotless, buy since becoming a mom it's not so spotless...I actually find myself "spot cleaning" more than deep cleaning. It's my constant challenge. Hope you enjoy your time off with your hubby! I'll be keeping an eye out for the "breaking" news:)

Sit A Spell said...

I hope y'all had a wonderful Christmas! We had a fun day, but today is all work...getting ready to head south to see family. It will be almost 60 degrees down there; I can hardly wait!
Take this time to relax and enjoy as much as you can!

Just caught up with all of your posts. My, what great decorations! Your house is beautiful! Loved the pic of your daughter and her Daddy dancing. So cute.

Sounds like you're almost ready to deliver with the cleaning you've been doing. My sister did the same thing before her daughter was born. Her water broke right after she finished cleaning the floor. She was worried about it as we hustled her out the door to the hospital. :)

Hope your Christmas was Merry and Bright! Wishing you a healthy and prosperous New Year! xxoo

Marie said...

Oh your Christmas decor was gorgeous! I loved everything. Hope you had a very merry Christmas!!

Rhonda said...

Queen Bee,

Remember this: "The days are long, but the years are short!" Go look at my blog to see what I'm talking about. I have an 18 year old MAN as my first born and a new baby! Believe me, your babies will be packing up for college TOMORROW. You can clean your house then...Who cares about those messes?! Let 'em go!

Hope you had a merry Christmas! I have found it impossible to blog much with all of my family underfoot so I can relate to your *sabbatical.*

I look forward to your renewed posting and to hearing an update on the baby status.

Happy New Year!

Happy New Year! I just had to check and see if you might have posted during your break with "breaking news", but none yet, eh!

Best wishes to you and your family for 2009 -- it's gonna be a great year, isn't it!
