I can't. I don't know where the time has gone but I would like an extra week back. I don't think we're quite ready for Christmas here. I haven't been very full of holiday cheer yet and I've done absolutely zero holiday baking. Our Christmas decorations are at a minimum since I'll just have to repack them in a short time anyways. We've been so busy getting things ready for the big move that we've neglected Christmas shopping for the most part, although we did try to go on Saturday and it was complete chaos at the mall so we basically walked in and turned right back around.
We had another large snowfall today and I'm glad that it looks like we'll have a white Christmas at least! Brendan was having a rough day today so I took him out in the snow to help cheer him up. It worked for approximately 2 minutes. He enjoyed the falling snow and trying to catch the snowflakes in his hands but his good mood quickly turned sour.
I don't know what made him angry but even his dad's arrival didn't cheer him up completely (don't you love the bed-head). So we've been watching lots of Curious George this evening to keep him happy. I think the poor guy must not be feeling well... just in time for Christmas!
But it appears that candy canes also work in cheering him up. Although if you don't open it fast enough for him, he'll let you know.
