These Days I am Consumed with Cuteness

I don't know about you, but I've been busy.
Parties and Christmas Programs and time with my family...
And I've been working on decorating for another party coming this weekend.
I am sorta scattered and all over the place, but am still remaining unusually calm.
And I plan to stay this way for a long time.

I have three little people in my life that have been consuming a lot of my attention lately.
I mean, they always did because really is there any other choice?
But sometimes it is by circumstance, not by choice.
And now as I sit here typing, with one daughter crawling on my back,
and another talking to me about Home Alone, 
I tell myself to stop, get off the computer and pay attention to them
by choice.

So, that's what I am going to go do...

But of course I had to leave you with all the cuteness in the world,
so you can see why I must now get off this computer.

This little girl, 3 yrs old just told me yesterday,
"That's Justin Beiber! My Boy."

Ahhhh, life with girls. Of course, I can't say that I haven't encouraged it. ;)

Hello, ladies! If you missed it last week, here's the Mixer's latest big news:

Dear sweet mommas of the Mommy-Brain Mixer,

I have such mixed feelings tonight as I write this! I have decided to step down from hosting the Mommy-Brain Mixer , as I have realized within the last couple of weeks that blogging and all the extras that come with it are keeping me from being the best mommy to my sweet littles and wife to my husband.

Being a mom is my passion, and my eyes have been opened to the fact that I've been slacking in the last couple of months. Not only has this affected my precious family, but it has affected me - I've been unhappy and depressed knowing that my blog life has been so alive, yet my home life has been suffering so!

Therefore, I've decided to give up quite a few "extras" of blogging for now and go back to the root that I love so much - writing. Unfortunately, this means giving up one of my other babies - the Mommy-Brain Mixer!

The great news is - the Mommy-Brain Mixer will continue to thrive!

Sweet, wonderful Jelli from Jellibean Journals has agreed to take over the Mixer and give it the TLC it deserves! Beginning on January 3, 2013, the Mommy-Brain Mixer will take place at Jellibean Journals (the Mixer will take December 27th off for Christmas week). More wonderful news: Cassie from Live.Laugh.L0ve will be staying on as co-host!

Are you scheduled as a future co-host? No worries! You may have missed the email we just sent stating that Jelli is keeping all co-hosts exactly where you are! She will be contacting you as your date draws closer!

The Mommy-Brain Mixer was created with great care and a wild passion for motherhood, and will continue in the same way! I'll definitely be seeing you there when I'm able, sweet ladies!
