I only have three photos this week, and both of them crack me up.
Andrew made this Rudolph with his Rainbow Loom! Yes, it's completely made out of rubber bands, and has a little paperclip inside it to make it stand up. Andrew amazes me. He asks me first if he can go on the computer for the tutorial, and then I see him working for awhile, and then he has some new crazy bracelet, or in this case, figurine. I really wanted him to keep it and give it to me for the tree-what a cute ornament, but he is giving it to his teacher. He promised he would make me something later.
About an hour into yesterday morning, I heard a crash. Yes! It happened. I put the tree up, so it's my fault.
All I could do was laugh. I don't know why it is so funny to me, but it just is.
I told Jeff I was thinking about leaving it like this till December 26.
It has been a doozy of a week ... Janey is cutting quite a few teeth all at once-she has been sleeping awful, short restless little bits, and I can't put her down for a second. It has to hurt like heck, but oh these teething weeks...they aren't easy ever.
It was a scrambly-type of morning with the kids, and then this happened.
OF COURSE it happened.
When it rains it pours.
I find since I've had Janey, that my "skating through life" days (those easy, everything goes right, I'm all caught up, ahead of the game days) usually fall one after another with much less frequency than they ever have before. Some new surprise always bursts into the scene and can throw me off kilter.
I have also found that for that reason alone, I strive more than ever to keep my life as simple as possible.
I hiked this baby back up and used a screw driver to wedge it into the stand. Nothing was broken, mostly because there is nothing breakable on the tree. Or in that room. Or in the entire house. :)
