Back to Life…


8 Christmas celebrations.

1 New Year’s Eve Party.

6 movies (5 rentals, 1 in the theater).

7 days of sleeping in past 8 am.

2 sick kids

Countless gifts.

8 books read.

2 nights that the kids actually got into bed within an hour of their bedtime.

More laughter, loves and enjoyment then I can count.

And that, my friends, was our past 10 days in a nutshell.  The Bean was sick on the 22nd and 23rd, but thankfully rallied by Christmas Eve so we could have a fantastic night with my family.  Christmas Day was spent at home for the first time ever in the 13 years the Hubs and I have been together.  Family came to us and we had a wonderful afternoon watching the kids play.  The rest of the week was a blur of parties and dinners and family and friends- just like the holidays should be.  Our only break came mid week when Scorch got sick- thankfully with a much milder version of the stomach bug the Bean had.  On the days he was sick, no one got out of their PJs- old ones were simply traded for clean ones after showers .

The Hubs and I both had last week off from work – so we had 10 days at home together where neither of us had to work for the first time since our maternity/paternity leave when Scorch was born.  I kept looking at him all week saying how nice it was just to have this time together- clearly we’d make very good lazy rich people.  The kids, bless their hearts, finally learned how to sleep in past 6 am, so most mornings we weren’t out of bed until 8 am which is such a luxury.

All in all, these past 10 days were absolutely, incredible wonderful.

I hope you and yours had a blessed holiday season!  2012 is going to be a great year- I can feel it!
