Long time, no see. Merry Christmas!

So it’s been an incredibly long time since I’ve updated here. All kinds of things have happened since August. A family member’s severe illness, husband becoming self-employed, car issues, you name it. Quite frankly, it’s been a nightmare.

And let’s not forget the identity theft.

We’ve been through the ringer and hopefully 2012 is going to be a much better year. I’m planning on it anyway.

So far the lil’ munchkin has learned a great deal. He’s still behind on his speaking skills and we’re not really sure why. So we’re encouraging him as best we can and since they can’t find anything wrong with him, well, it’s just the way he is. He’s getting there though.

Currently we’re making an alphabet book. With all the chaos of the past few months we couldn’t really follow any type of schedule so we’ve been fitting things in wherever we can. The result? He knows most of his ABCs, knows some of his numbers, his colors, is drawing, and plays school. He still says he’s bored sometimes so we fill in as we can. He’s also learned to spell one of his favorite words – Book.

Next year we plan to use Sonlight for his preschool. A monthly payment plan will allow us to get what we need and it’s relaxed enough that we will easily be able to work around anything like a health issue. I like that everything will be in one box. I showed munchkin the catalog and he’s in love. We don’t have the room (or money really) for a lot of Christmas decorations. Not what is important anyway. But Boobear and I made one. We had a good deal of fun. Today we made sugar cookies for Santa and he’s all excited about watching Santa’s progress on Norad.

Here’s a picture of our little tree and snowflakes on the wall, complete with bug stickers:
