Spinning Clock....

It's December already!
It's amazing how fast this year has flown by.  How fast paced life becomes.
Our Little Man had his last basketball game last night.
We decided to go for pizza after, and I asked him "So what's next?"
He just looked at me.  And then he said Christmas and showing cattle.
Mr. M and I spoke of how we are too busy most of the time.
This week alone it seems like we are trying to do 100 things at time.

I am doing some finishing touches on decorating the house.
I need to finish Christmas shopping, which is a chore when you have no idea what to get!
Mr. M and the babies will be home for two weeks with me for the end of the year.
Our Baby Girl is leaving the single digits, with her birthday the day after Christmas.
One of our nephews turns 16 on Thursday.
The oldest turns 18 at the end of the month and was just accepted to Black Hawk.
And then before you know it we will be celebrating a new year.

I would like for things to slow down a LOT.
I don't enjoy my babies growing so quickly.
I don't like the fact that our family dynamic changes so much.
My people around me grumble at all the photos that I take, but one day they will enjoy them.

So for our part we try and embrace every single minute.
To do as much as a family.  And with our friends.
To embrace the good things in life and let go of the bad.
Life's way to short.  Live in the moment.

Oh so true they grow up so fast keep taking those photos.
My sister has a birthday on the 26 also.
Take care and family time is the best time:) B
