I have a Fun Mama, and that's the kind of Mama I want to be. What she didn't have in resources she made up for in creativity. I want to be the Mama with plenty of crayons, fingerpaint, lemonade and cookie dough. I have sprinkles and character bandages and I'm not afraid to use them.

Today. . .Christmas Edition
Outside my window... it is not cold enough for snow to stick to the ground, but still cool enough to feel like Christmas to me (mid-40s).
I am thinking... that this Christmas is going to be exciting with an almost three year old!
I am thankful for... not being as sick as I was two weeks ago (even though the cough is lingering).
I am wearing... a comfy pair of jeans and a Life Is Good shirt I snagged on clearance a couple of years ago.
I am remembering... that I still have two cakes to bake.
I am going... nowhere else tonight, but to my sister-in-law's tomorrow for dinner.
I am reading... nothing at the moment, but picked up the 4th book in the Forensic series by Alane Ferguson at the library.
I am hoping... that this cough goes away sooner than the doctor predicted (several weeks).
On my mind... the few things I have left to finish before Christmas. Noticing that... little girls get more excited and feelings get more fragile the closer we get to December 25. From the kitchen... red velvet cake, lemon cheese cake, and a surprise cookie (I hope).
Around the house... wrapping paper, shipping boxes and Christmas cards.
One of my favorite things ~ getting photos, letters and special notes from friends and family in the mail.
A few plans for the rest of the week: enjoying the weekend with my little family and my parents.
