Back in the swing of things

We have just come out of  a good 5 days of sickness. Cough, cold, fever. Both boys still have coughs but I chose to send Anders to school today because he didn't have a fever. It turns out that having two children who are sick and needy makes for a messy house and now I am sitting here trying to figure out where to even begin! Chris' mom is coming in the day after tomorrow and we will celebrate our first Christmas of the season. It should be fun but all I can think about is "how in the heck am I going to get everything done?" So today it's going to be a "put things away" day. Tomorrow is going to be a deep clean day. Friday will be a last minute shopping day.

While the boys were home sick I made a paper chain (with a little help from Anders) for our Christmas tree. Chris really likes the way it looks thank goodness. =) It was fun to just sit and make something out of paper and I plan on making a few snowflakes as well. They remind me of some of the Christmas's that we had growing up with some German girls that lived with us. They made some beautiful paper decorations that looked so old fashioned and simple.
I will post a few pictures when I load them onto the computer. Hopefully my next post will just be pictures!

I loved (LOVED!) the sweet, simple and natural Christmas decorations in Germany. To me, that is how it should all be, and I was glad to see that in a shiny, plastic world there are still places where they like to make things out of paper, wood and pinecones.

So sorry your kids have been sick, and that you have so much to do. We had a fun time seeing you and skyping with Anders, though! Looking forward to more of that next week, if it works out for you guys.
