Status Update

I'm listening to: "Let it Snow, Baby... Let it Reindeer" by Relient K. Always late to catch on but this is probably my most favorite Christmas album. I always cry over "I Celebrate the Day" but I also love "Merry Christmas, Here's to Many More" and "In Like a Lion (Always Winter). Thanks, Kate, for introducing me!

I'm watching: Criminal Minds (anyone else totally crabby over the end of last week's episode? ugh!) and also "The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe" which is completely making me want to re-read the whole amazing Chronicles of Narnia series!

I'm reading: "Courting Trouble" by Deeane Gist. Well, I haven't actually started it yet but I will soon and I am really looking forward to it.

I'm putting off: cleaning my laundry room. I trashed it pulling out the Christmas decor but it has needed a major overhaul for a while. My sister informed me the last time she was here that I should keep the door shut...

I want to: address my Christmas cards (hope to do that today) and make candy! I have picked out four different kinds of truffles that I want to make and I am really eager to get started. I also have a cookie exchange coming up and I am looking forward to getting some new recipes.

I'm excited about: Jocelyn singing in church next Sunday. This will be her first "performance" as part of the preschool choir. I am already charging the video camera! I am sure it will be adorable. I am also excited about Christmas Eve-our tradition is to attend the service and then do dinner out. It will be a great family time.

I'm thankful that: it is snowing outside, but warm inside. Also, that we have almost all our Christmas presents purchased (I don't have anything for Joel but he won't take long-everything he wants is so expensive!) Also, that our Savior came in the form of a precious, sweet, innocent Baby to live to die for my sins...

What's up with you?:)


  1. Hey Clare - first off, if you can't see the pics on my blog, it might because you're clicking on the link "November snapshot" and they're actually in the untitled post below that one. Just a thought.

    Sounds like December has you adequately busy. If you can post a vid of Jocelyn singing that would be AWESOME!!! Share her with us :)

  2. What's up with me? Hmmmmm.....

    I'm listening to: the sound of the furnace, and Headline News on the TV in the background. Pretty soon I'll have the radio on listening to Christmas music. =)

    I'm watching: pretty much nothing right now since most of my shows are on "Christmas break." The 'ol TiVo box is probably wondering if we've died.

    I'm reading: "What to Expect the First Year" since I am totally overwhelmed at times with being a Mom here pretty soon.

    I'm putting off: my chores today. I'd rather lay around and do nothing. ;)

    I want to: finish getting Noah's room cleaned and decorated today and tomorrow. I also want to get the house more clean and smelling good for our party tonight.

    I'm excited about: the new year, our Broadmoor adventure on Friday night, and our Life Group party on Saturday night.

    I'm thankful that: to me, I have the perfect life. It feels good to be happy. =)
