I left my positive attitude somewhere around Dec 5th 2015 and it has yet to return. The neighbors did not get treats. We did not see the temple lights. We did not see Santa at Bass Pro. We made no cookies, not even for jolly old St. Nick. We adopted no families. We barely made it to one Christmas party. I'm just going to forget this season ever happened.
Now I have very mild placenta previa and have been ordered rest and no exercise. I negotiated with my doctor to still teach my yoga classes, but I am now 6 days without getting a solid sweat going. How do people get anything done without the energy boost from exercise?! Without it, pregnancy fatigue is twice as bad. And cutting my classes also means cutting my money.
The struggle is real my friends!
Let's see what pictures I actually took that can misrepresent the month and put it in a cheery glow.
My sister made sugar cookies with the kids while I complained on her couch for 5 hours.
Grammy babysat and made a really cute gingerbread house with my kids.
Birthday presents from Aunt Chris were very well loved.
I made an ewok scoodie for my secret sister gift exchange
J rocked her part in the preschool program
We road the mini train by my inlaw's house. M had his mind blown.
I colored my hair "dark golden brown"
We still made the most amazing Bo Ssam even though the party never happened. Seriously, make this recipe.
Now time to sort through the fancy camera pictures and look for some Christmas morning magic.
