We're stockingless

Now that the turkey has officially been devoured we can get ready for the jolly fat guy to come.  I am a firm believer in waiting until Thanksgiving is over before pulling out the Christmas tree.  Call me bah humbug if you must.  
Since Thanksgiving has been over for 3 days now and all the leftovers have been polished off, it's time to pull out the red and green decor. Oh wait, we can't.  It's packed in places that are unreachable at the moment.  We warned the kiddos there would be no tree this year.  Nowhere to put it in this tiny apartment.  That's fine.  We just improvised
A paper tree plastered to the wall.  Quite impressive if I do say so myself.  
The kids are fine with no tree.  Nate's fine with no tree. I'm fine with no tree.  So tell me, why did I almost start crying when I realized we wouldn't have our stockings this year?  Nate's mom makes the cutest stockings.  Everyone compliments them when they see them.  What is Santa going to do when he comes here and can't find the stockings?  I'm sure he will improvise as well.

Nothing to blog about

So I feel like I'm in a funk.  Nothing to write about anymore.  It's not that there's nothing going on....wait yes it is, there is nothing going on.  Our house is still going extremely slow.  So slow.  No pictures to post because nothing is really happening with it.  I'm trying to be patient.  I know the builders are extremely busy, but man I was hoping we would be in this year.  That's not happening.  It's out of my control.  I'm trying not to let it get to me.  But we should have a roof by the end of the week.  Woohoo!!
I just sit around this little apartment and dream about having clean carpet and a pantry to put my cereal in.  One day.  
I keep thinking the kids have to be doing something crazy I can blog about but they are actually being normal.  Or close to.
I was a little hurt today when Baylor decided to draw a picture of me.  Here it is:
Can you see it?  I hope you can see it.  I'm raising a little Picasso here.  I asked him what the bumps were and he told me they were my fat belly.  Thanks for the confidence boost little buddy.

So that's it.  That's all I've got.  2 weeks of no posts and this is the best I can do.  Sorry to disappoint.
