2018 Wrap-Up

Hello Friends,

So we’re all wrapping up another year. In a few short hours the celebrations will ensue and we’ll usher in 2019. Before all that, I want to take a minute for some well-wishing.

To the D³ readership, I send out a sincere thanks. Your support means so much to me. Keep the comments coming, and tell all your friends to subscribe! Seriously though, without you all I would just be talking to myself. I’ll continue blogging another year, and am planning to add video content as well. You should see us pop up on some of the other socials too. And I know, more pictures of the girls!

To my family, you were the first supporters and continue to be the closest to our family unit. I respect your input and appreciate you sharing your own family stories, both the struggles and triumphs. Thank you for all you do.

Let’s welcome 2019. I’m hopeful that we’ll figure out how to be kinder, smarter people. At least, that’s where I’ll be aiming. Be safe tonight, friends. Enjoy your celebrations and make it home to your loved ones safely. We’ll see you out there!

Welcome Holi-daze

Hello Friends,

I started this post on December 7th, just after Winterfest wrapped. The delay shows how fast our December passed. What happened to this month? Is that your experience as well?

I was so excited to share our holiday preparations. We brought home our tree, our first live one (thanks, Nelly!), the Friday of Winterfest. A Fraser Fir, it has served us well. The needles are coarse, so they clean up easily from the hardwood, and it hasn’t been that much of a pain keeping it watered. The branches are good and sturdy for the ornaments, and it is so much fuller than our fake tree. Overall, a good choice for us.

Another part of our holiday prep is our Elf on the Shelf (EOTS). Yes, like so many of you, we host an eight-inch tall snitch for the month of December. Does she help keep the girls in line? Eh, not so much. But “Evie” has been haunting helping us all this month and holiday spirit abounds.

And school events? Wow, let’s list those: Winterfest, Santa’s Workshop, Christmas Program, Pajama Drives and parties in general kept the girls busy. Busy, yes, but fun too.

The girls arranging their wares

So this has been our holiday season. The girls are another year older, they are smarter and a bit more squirrely. Wife and I have to be more careful and more creative to keep them off the Santa trail. Thankfully, they “get it” more with the holiday stuff this year, so it’s been fun. Just one day yet, welcome Christmas!
