Yay - Almost December!

Oh, how I love the Christmas season. The Christmas carols have begun already on all the radio stations, and that really puts me in a good mood. I'm almost finished my Christmas shopping and the Christmas cards are all sent! Now it's just time to enjoy the wonderful season.

The kids are doing wonderfully. They both like skating class though neither can quite stand on their own yet.....they'll get there soon hopefully! Josh is doing really well in swimming class and speech therapy. Kaia is enjoying ballet class and reminds me at least daily that she is a Ballerina. The problem is, this ballerina doesn't even know how to get off the ground though, so it makes it hard to do the ballet jumps. Mind you, she THINKS she is getting off the ground when indeed she is just getting onto her tiptoes. It's really cute.

Last night we had Tim's work Christmas party in Kitchener. It was great to finally meet some of Tim's coworkers and put faces to names. The food was yummy too! We had a nice time but we're a little tired today. It's not the best of ideas to have a party on a Tuesday night an hour away from home.

Little by little I'm getting more used to this working/Mom/wife thing. It's crazy how I am going continually from morning to night.....but I wouldn't change it. The kids just LOVE being at daycare with all the other kids and every morning they are eager to get there. My mornings start at 6am when I shower, get ready, get the kids ready and we're at daycare by 7:15am and I'm at work by 7:30am. I'm SOOOO lucky that Quyen feeds them breakfast......when Josh starts J/K in the fall I guess I won't be so lucky!

We have decided that we aren't sending Josh to the Christian school. There are various reasons, but it mainly comes down to how far away the school is from our place....also factor in cost and the fact that the public school by our house has a great reputation....we just feel it will be a good fit for him. He already has some social issues with his shyness, and so he will already know several kids at public school so that would make the transition easier for him. So, prayerfully, we have made that decision. He is enjoying Sunday school every week (as is Kaia!) so that is a blessing!

I'm such a BAD Blogger!

Well, since we've gotten back we have just been soooo stinking busy and I haven't updated our blog. When we got back from the cruise I fell a bit ill, it was a bit of vertigo I think. Then we fell into Halloween where the kids were Dora and boots. They were adorable and had such a blast!

Then we've had ballet, swimming, and skating classes to keep us busy, not to mention work, church, Christmas shopping and life!!! We just have so little free time right now. Josh also is starting speech therapy next week so we'll be juggling alot until the end of the year. Such is life I guess!

Work is going well for both Tim and I and the kids are continuing to do fabulously. They love being at their home daycare and I enjoy being at work. We still haven't completely adjusted, but we are getting there.

Right now we are looking into sending Josh to the Milton Christian School (which is a private school) for juniour's a big decision, so please pray for us that we will make the right decision. We just love that the teachings are Christ-centred and that the teacher/children ratio is really low.

Well, that's it for now. I'm in the process of working on our Christmas cards so watch your mailboxes :)
