I wish I could post more...

Seriously, where did the fall go?? Or 2011 in its entirety? The year has been a bit of a whirlwind. A wonderful, chaotic, amazing, enriching, trying, beautiful year. For half of the year I barely slept, for the other half I've been trying to sort out allergies with my kids. But, I think I've come out ahead (truth be told I've lost count, but it kind of feels like a small victory to have survived this year?!)

So, exactly *why* I'm not able to update this blog as often as I'd like, you ask? Well, it really boils down to two things:

1. Thing One, and 

2. Thing Two

 These precious little creatures light up our lives every day -- even those days when we are up before the crack of dawn...

They make mundane tasks like taking a bath a true adventure >>>

Their little personalities have exploded and provided many laughs, smiles, and the occasional tears too! They certainly have developed their own sense of style that they are very particular about. Thing Two, for example, has worn Cookie Monster and Fire Trucks almost exclusively for a good part of the year. Gives mommy a good shopping challenge!

The bee hats have also been particularly popular - not quite the pumpkin patch pictures I was hoping for - but certainly captures the spirit of the outing! 

They want to help with everything and have their own views on what 'help' is -- such as using a range of kitchen utensils to set up our Christmas tree :)


So, as much as I would love to blog more, these two things have kept: me running; my heart warm; my eyes wet; my pride overflowing; my coffee cup full. I'm still around, and have a couple of posts in queue that I really do want to get to... after I go and snuggle my boys. :) Happy holidays!
