Titus

Just wanted to post a couple more photos of my little man...... and his big sisters....



7 year old Elizabeth is so excited to have a baby of their own.... (not just a cousin)



8 year old Emma says "he's cute and precious".....





5 year old Sophia is pretty pleased with her brother....she is just no sure about not being the baby anymore.


all 4 kids....

an active little boy....


I love the look on Rob's face....and the good shot of Titus' hair

The little girls are at our house yesterday and today....we'll take them home before bedtime tonight since Lana and Titus are now home

In other news.....I've had terrible cravings for sweets this week. I haven't had to deal with this kind of craving before...at all. I've not given in too many times, but enough that my weight loss has slowed. WI is Wednesday and as of today I am at 212.0 ....down from last Wednesday, but still not as low as the Wednesday before. It is also hard to find time to go on the treadmill since it is the last crunch before Christmas.

I babysat for Kathryn's day home for 2 days last week, then Saturday evening we went to the girls' Christmas Play and 'had a baby'. Since then, the girls have been here. Because of these things, I am a little behind on gifts that I am making and I still have 3 or 4 to buy.

On the positive side, in the midst of all that extra activity, I managed to reorganize and clean 2 "pantries", a large cupboard, and a small cupboard....giving myself just a little more counter space on which to serve dinner for 20. In my kitchen, even a little more counter space is priceless.

It feels good to have more order in my home. Because of the other rooms that I have "decluttered" and reorgaized over the last 7 months, it will be a breeze to go through the house on the 24th and make it "company ready"......

I hope you are finding joy in the holiday rush and not stressing about things that do not matter!

Be good to yourself - do not totally deprive yourself, but do not over indulge, either. Find the balance and have a wonderful Christmas!

Likely won't post again until after the 27th (my last 'company' day)....talk to you then!

I plan to declutter my home this new year as well. Maybe I should scour your site for some tips??
