Hustle & Bustle

There's a date marked on the calendar for Jared & I to finish up our Christmas & stocking stuffer shopping. We're looking forward to a night of ice skating with our Jett man. I've got blank canvases sitting in my craft room, waiting for little painted hands & feet to transform them into crafting masterpieces. Our 2012 ornaments have been carefully chosen. My worn & tattered sugar cookie recipe has been dug out of my recipe book & my pink stand mixer is calling my name. I've already made one batch of homemade cocoa mix {taste tested & approved by my sweet friend, Amy} & there are still homemade marshmallows to be whipped up. We'll visit Santa in the next week or so. I'll sit down & plan out a menu & place settings for Christmas morning breakfast. We'll watch Frosty The Snowman at least a hundred more times.

And if all of that isn't enough to keep us busy this holiday season, well then....

our big move is sure going to!

That's right. We're moving! Yep, right smack dab in the middle of the Christmas season.

It's crazy. It's busy. It's hectic. But we're making the very most of it. As the Christmas gifts are being dropped off the Fed-Ex truck, labeled boxes are being loaded onto moving trucks. The best part? It's all set to the tune of John Denver & The Muppets.

We are so looking forward to this new chapter in our lives. A home that's a hop, skip & jump from all of our family. The Smalltown, USA we have always dreamt of bringing our children up in. A house big enough to grow in. We are excited.

Even if it does take the term hustle & bustle to a whole new level.
