Twelve Twelve Twelve


I wondered what today would be like, kind of expecting it to be special being 12-12-12 and all. Like something was going to happen.

Well, I dropped Ivy off at school and went to the store for dinner and more sugar cookie supplies, ran home to put a roast in the crock pot (it was incredibly delicious!), and then back out to finish up some Christmas shopping. I don't even remember all the stores I made it to before picking Ivy up and taking her along with me for more errands and present-buying. We came home and I straightened the house and finished up some knitting and the last of the gifts to send to family. We're going to be here-home for Christmas, not back-home, it's our first time away. Our first time wrapping and sending off presents to make sure they arrive in time.

12-12-12 was quite a productive day, I might have even set a few dreams and wishes off into the air. And I feel like something is going to happen.


  1. how are you feeling about not christmasing back home? excited or bummed?

    i still can't believe all 4 are in school at some point during the day. OMG.

  2. So glad your day was so productive. And I'm lovin' Carter's new hair cut.

  3. I'm with Ari - I can't believe all 4 are in school! I can't imagine (and won't be able to for a while) what that will be like :)

    Christmas without family is definitely hard, but honestly it is fun. We have been able to start our own little family traditions and do our own thing. It is fun. This year I have decided to do a Christmas Eve potluck brunch. We've invited friends and neighbors over and it will be a fun way to start the day. We will see how many people come though, I don't know how many people are like us and aren't going anywhere for the holidays.

    Still wish we were neighbors...I would love to sit and knit wit you.

  4. When I read your posts about moving and the changes that have come with it, it reminds me SO much of when we moved to LA. We spent our first Christmas here too (partly because I had a newborn!). And we will stay here again this year. It's just easier that way and I kinda love our small, little Christmas as a family of 5, with our own traditions, etc.

    Hope your dreams come true. :)
