Hello dear friends! Thank you for the sweet advice. Things seem a bit better now. John and I slowly decorated for Christmas this week. Taking something else out of the Christmas box each day seemed like Christmas morning to John. I'm so thankful for his sweet excited spirit. Children really do make Christmas don't they?
We've danced to Christmas music, drank hot chocolate, played in the snow and generally taken it really slow to allow Arthur (and myself) to recuperate. I think Arthur is better although since he is generally a fussy baby it is rather hard to tell sometimes. He is eating better so I think that means he's better.
I've managed to craft and create where and when I can - pulling John into it as well, cutting, pasting, playing with felt and wool. Crafting and creating is such balm to my soul I just couldn't do without it.
I made Arthur a sweet little bonnet since the typical hats seem to just fall right off his larger pate. Unfortunately no pattern and none coming soon - pattern writing is not in my time allowance right now.
I had better run... the little ones are tucked in their bed and there are a few more things I need to do before I stop for the night. Snow is falling now - snow upon snow and I'm looking forward to watching it a little as I create with a steaming pot of tea to keep me company!
Talk to you all soon!
