Time is drawing near....

Only a few days left before St. Nicks makes his annual visit to these three very excited folks!

The last few days have been great just being with them and doing stuff like playing games, hanging out and not feeling like I have to rush anywhere. I vowed last month to let each child pick a special activity they wanted to do with Mom for a day and I stuck to it. Last weekend Mckenna and I went to the mall shopping and then out to dinner, last week Quaid and I went to movie together and yesterday Aydan and I went ice skating.

Today my pottery "buds" came over for some lunch and Julie used my pug-mill for her porcelain scraps. As always this was fun just getting together to talk shop. In the afternoon, I glazed my last special order for the year and this evening I enjoyed the couch all to myself and a documentary about fashion designer Valentino. Yet again a great creative mind with a strong cantankerous personality and absolutely no business sense. People like this always make me feel better about myself.....if you like stuff like this, rent it - very enjoyable.

Such an enjoyable day!

You are a good mom! What a nice thing to give each kid some mommy time alone. They look soooo much like you! I know it must be wild around your house on Christmas morning.
