Christmas Greetings!

I figured this is probably the only time I'm going to have to put in a Christmas update as the next fews days look to be rather busy. Tim is working for the day and then this evening we're heading to his parents place to open presents. Tomorrow morning we'll have our first Christmas together as a family with Reuben, and in the afternoon we'll be heading to Chatham to celebrate with my parents and siblings for a few days. Much to do...

Christmas this year seems different for some reason. I think that reason is called Reuben. There are so many times when I look at him and I can't believe that I have a son, and he is it. Yet every time I go to pick him up from his crib and he smiles at me, I love him a little more. I've discovered there is a bitter-sweetness to being a mother. You love them when they're small, and part of you wishes they would always be small, but another part of you is so excited to see them grow up, and you can't help wondering what they will be like when they're older. And you know that deep in your heart, some day you'll have to let them go.

Anyway, as a completely random aside, I'm currently on my third load of laundry, with at least one more yet to do. Strange how even though I now have my own washer and dryer I still put off doing it until the pile overflows the basket and I no longer have socks in my drawer. I'm a procrastinator at heart, what can I say? I always intend to get better at doing things in a timely fashion, (like Christmas shopping), but for some reason I'm always waiting till the last minute. Maybe someday I will learn, but I doubt it.

Here's some pics of Reuben to end off. I hope you all have a wonderful Christmas and the very best of New Year's.

Hi, I didn't know you had a blogger. That is so neat. I'll have to add you to mine so I can remember how to get to your site.
