My mom just left this morning and we are all a little sad. She came down after Thanksgiving to help with some of that "frosting" stuff I mentioned before, like deep cleaning and Christmas decorations. It was wonderful having her here and I am thoroughly enjoying my sparkling clean house and Christmas decorations. We also got our new bookshelves put together and organized and even had time to make graham cracker houses with the kids. Have I ever told you how awesome my mom is? I have? Well... I'll say it again anyway. My mom is AWESOME! I love her so much!
