It's time for a "Currently..." link up with Anne at in residence. I'm a little sad that Anne is taking a (completely understandable) hiatus from this link up in the new year. I will miss it. I might have to go back and blog some of her past prompts since I really only started linking up about a year and a bit ago. It looks like Anne started "Currently..." in April 2014 (or so) so I have some catching up to do :) Anyways, on with this month's prompts.
Edited to add: Anne is going to continue the link up in January (YAY!!!) while taking a break from reading all the blogs (again, completely understandable. I didn't write much at all on the blog the year Sam was born, and he was my first child.). Thank you Anne!
Predominantly, I am feeling so very grateful. Rachel got vaccinated last week and it's such a relief to have that process started.
We were also able to have our walking of the labyrinth at church happen in person and I cried so many tears of joy watching the kids be able to partake in this meaningful tradition again.
I'm also feeling simultaneously excited that we will get to see Rachel perform Nutcracker in person this coming weekend but at the same time, I'm also a little overwhelmed by everything we need to do to help this happen.
Last Friday night we watched a Hallmark movie and addressed our holiday cards. Our family either sends out our cards in a timely fashion or super-late, like February or March! I'm thrilled that this year we are sending them in a timely fashion.
Since we don't have a range hood in our kitchen, it's very easy to set off our fire alarm when cooking. Thus, Dave grills the latkes outside. It was amazing to step outside on Sunday afternoon and smell the latkes! And they tasted just as good as they smelled.
Well, I'm not wrapping anything but Dave sure will be! We went shopping for a few hours on Friday afternoon and completed almost all of our Channukah and Christmas shopping. For the past couple of nights, we've just thrown the kids' gifts into gift bags. However, Dave will have to do some wrapping over these next few weeks. And, in case you haven't figured it out yet, I hate wrapping so I make Dave do it all!
So that's what's up with us for December. And I realize this is a bit of a repeat of my last post (which you can read here), but so much of what is happening right now makes me so very happy and I just want to savour it all.
