On Christmas day Celeste couldn't sleep (just like a kid!) and was up at around 3:30 a.m., asking if Santa had come yet. I told her yes, so she rushed out to see what Santa brought her. She opened her presents, saw her bike, exclaiming "Santa brought me the bike from mom's office!" She had accidently discovered it a month prior, we hoped she'd forget, but I guess not! She went back to bed after that, and opened the rest of the presents when we all woke back up at 8.
She is very happy with all her gifts, planning when she will wear certain outfits, alternating playing with all of her new toys, trying to sneak bike rides in the living room. Unfortunately there is still too much iced over snow to take her to the park :(
Well, my dinner is almost done, so I better get to it, I will try to post some pics later-XO

1. While most people wouldn't pick moving to be at the top of their list of the things they loved for the past year, it is definetly mine! Buying my first home was scary, was depressing at times, and is the best thing I've done this year! I have a home of my own for my daughter to grow up in, at a price I can afford. It is something I never thought I would be able to do with how exspensive homes were just a couple of years ago.

Celeste is at her Dad's this weekend. I'm bummed she couldn't build the snowman family with me. She wanted to make one sooo bad this past week, but the snow didn't stick right. Hopefully she gets to make one at her Dad's!-XO

I am finally done with all my Christmas shopping, and I am fairly confident I have enough left in my budget to ship my out of state family's gifts. Celeste is working on a giant poinsettia to decorate for her homework this week, she is pretty happy to be back at school with her friends she missed over the November break. I have finally run out of Thanksgiving left overs... glad they lasted so long though, really helped to not have to go grocery shopping until today. I've been kind of lazy since then though, just playing on the computer :) --XO

I got the soaps from madhattersoap.etsy.com today. They are Christmas presents for some of my family, and they smell delish. Hope everybody loves them as much as I do! The stress of the holidays must be getting to me... I feel my wallet getting lighter and my headache getting bigger.

And of course, my miss Celeste was simply lovely as a snow princess! She was so cute when she was trick-or-treating, she kept saying "I loved that house" everytime we left a house. There were a couple that scared her and she clung to my leg "mommy, come with me". She got three whole candy bars, and filled up her little pumpkin bucket in an hour. Then we went home and passed out candy and watched scary movies. All in all it was a nice evening, not bitter cold, and we had a great time!

Down a winding hall, and sniffling under her covers was my sad little girl.
"What's wrong?" I ask.
"I-I just was helping. (Sniffle) I didn't mean to break it mama" and she burst in to tears.
Poor thing thought she broke the egg. I am always adament about her not handling the eggs, and she wants to prove she big enough to, and CRACK!

Today we went thrift store shopping for some cheap jeans for Celeste to grow out of way to quickly. As I picked her up to put her in the shopping cart, I realized I can barely do so. It is only a matter of time before I can't carry her anymore, and then she really won't be a little girl anymore. It is so wonderful to see her grow up, but brings tears to my eyes to know she isn't a baby anymore. I feel I didn't do enough to remember it. With the divorce I got nothing, just some baby photos on a CD. Everything else is a fading memory, and it makes me miss my little baby. XO
