Wow! Where do I begin? Here's the I-may-only-get-a-few-minutes-to-write blog post:
Malachi is now 24 days old... unbelievable!
My Mom had 2 weeks to visit and it's already over (insert sad face here)
(Malachi as Baby Jesus in Bethlehem LIVE!)
Our church's production of Bethlehem LIVE! had 5,347 visitors this year - Malachi was baby Jesus for 7.5 hrs in total and only missed 2 tours because he needed to eat... he did great! There's a great radio broadcast featuring this Winnipeg treasure here.
CLOTH DIAPERS (started over 2 years ago) ARE FINISHED!!!! This was a huge team effort. David cut, measured, purchased materials and got up early in the morning with Abigail so I could sleep. Mom spent many many hours sewing (including a couple of all-nighters!), also watched Abigail and Malachi so I could rest and even stitch ripped out my I'm-so-tired-I've-made-the-same-mistake-twice mishaps. Mom also purchased mis-measured (the few measurements I made) supplies and late night snacks. What started over 2 years ago is finally done and I don't see myself sewing any more diapers... ever!!!
(Late night sewing with my little helper)
My serger that David found at a garage sale for me last summer was serviced as a Christmas present and is up and running!! Now I just need to learn more than the basic function of it.
Malachi's birth story still coming, and might happen soon (now that things are slowing down... a bit)
- We are hoping to move in the new year... hoping we can get into these apartments in February... in suite laundry - hello!
- With all that's gone on this past month, I feel like I've already had Christmas - full of many many blessings!
I'll leave you with a family picture outtake...
... FAIL! (Twila, we need you!)
