So, this is pretty much the latest....

Wow. It's been awhile since I posted!!

I'm just so busy these days.

Sam is doing well in school. Stu is busy at work. And as for ME...I'm busy being a mom doing mundane mom things.

Of course, that does NOT stop Sam and me from having fun together. Yesterday, due to a snowstorm, I kept him home. I told his teachers that if the storm DID hit, there was no WAY I was going to bring him in. I have NO desire to fight my way through gusting wind with snow blowing in our faces. AND we would only be able to take the bus one way. (Plus, with it being the LAST day before the break, I thought, what's the POINT, anyway?)

So yesterday, Sam and i baked Hanukkah sugar cookies. They're so yummy!!

We were supposed to be hit with even MORE snow, but it seems to have cleared out now AND I think it's trying to clear up. Good. We have more than enough snow now, i think, to guarantee a White Christmas. I grew up with them, having come from Montreal, Quebec; I don't think, though, that even THEY'RE guaranteed one every year anymore.

I'm making my gifts this year...probably a BIT less expensive than BUYING them; the only "purchased" gifts are the ones for Sammy and Stu. But now I seem to be in a bit of a time crunch. I want to get some more baking done so I CAN get it all finished in time.
