Christmas? Already?

I am SO not caught up in ANY matter of speaking!
The Thanksgiving break was good - would have been better had I not had to bring home a bunch of school stuff to work on, but good.
I had a booth at Novemberfest. That sucked. I only got 4 orders. Don't think I'll make that same mistake 3 years running (ok, I'm a slow learner!).
Trav's sister & her family were here for the break. That was nice. We haven't seen them since Sept. when Caleb was blessed. We are hoping they can come back for Christmas!

We are trying to survive here. I had parent teacher conferences tonight & tomorrow. I haven't left work before 7 pm for 3 weeks running now. Yes, I get mother of the year award! Travis got laid off 2 weeks ago. I can't believe how little work there is around here. We're hoping he can stay busy until Christmas and then if need be he can go work in Rock Springs driving truck in the oil field. Not our first choice, but better than losing our house.

The kids are all geared up for Christmas. I'm stoked for a longer break! I really need to spend some time with my kids! Speaking of which, we're going to Manti this weekend to get our Christmas tree. Should be fun. I'm guessing I'll get to stay at the farm & Trav will get to take the kids up the mountain with his mom and dad. Should be interesting anyway!

I keep looking at everyone's blogs and thinking what cute pix they have posted. I do have Christmas cards with pix on them to get sent out. It's just a matter of finding the time to address 50 envelopes! Guess I'll have to print my address list out and take it in the car over the weekend!

Hope you have a great week!

Oh Misty!! I'm sorry it is so crazy. I wish I could help out. . . I am having stresses, but they are mommy stresses (you know, baby not sleeping, daughter potty training). I like your new background - it is very cute and festive.
