Hi there! I’ve been taking a little time this holiday season to lay low and regroup and get the master plan together for 2015 so I’ve been rather MIA around these parts. I am slowly getting back in the groove which means I’m back to posting regularly. Did you miss me?!
Christmas Eve we spent making cookies and roasting marshmallows. My husband undertakes this task and the children had a ball.
Christmas Eve after having a few sips of “Santa juice” my husband all of sudden wasn’t feeling so well *insert side eye* I sent him to bed and at 1a started putting together the massive 5 ft. tall dollhouse that we purchased for Addison. After three showings of a Christmas Story later (it ran 24 hours on Christmas Day) at approximately 5:45 I was done. I kind of felt like Clark Griswold at one point when I screwed the walls together and later realized the roof wouldn’t fit on because I put one of the walls on backwards. I had to hold back from drop kicking it like Clark did Santa and those reindeer when he couldn’t get the outside lights on the house to work.
I crashed on the couch because I knew she would be up shortly after I laid down and I was right. at about 7a we had action. We didn’t spend a lot of money on random gifts this year but focused on the few items the children requested and it made for a more fiscally responsible Christmas. We spent the majority of the day at home with family. I laid on the couch and watched movies all day. Totally relaxing.
I hope your family had an amazing Christmas and you are in the home stretch of getting your plan together for the new year.
