Tales of December 25th

Well, today was a quiet, boring stay in your PJ til 3PM day.. and I LOVED every minute of it!!  Actually think the kids and hubby did too.  They were all really great today, depsite being trapped inside.  Sometimes it is nice to be forced to spend a day alone with the fam, with no get away in sight.  Played Kinect with the kids- danced and laughed.  Watched Hannah Montana the movie with girls and cuddled on the couch. We only got dressed to grab a quick dinner with some friends and then straight back into jammies.   I did however get a ton accomplished.  Two loads of laundry, dishes clean and put away, decorations down and our home is officially holiday free!!.. for now... at least until Valentines Day arrives. 

Sidenote:  I am obsessed with decorating for holidays (in addition to throwing parties).  I just love how festive it looks and how warm and inviting the house becomes. 

Sidenote #2:  I am also obsessed with taking down the decorations as quickly as possible.  While I love love love the way they look, I just get kinda tired of all the clutter it becomes.  Our house is decorated from Oct. 1- Dec. 25th. (usually after the New Year, but we decided to speed it up this go around).

So, no snow. Yet. Though it has finally started to rain.  Lets see if it gets cold enough tonight for some snow to fall. We enjoyed hot cocoa and smores anyway... couldn't let it go to waste ya know.

That is it from here.  Not much happened today to share. Just a relaxing day with the fam.  Kudos to the kids for their great behavior... well, until the last hour or so.  Guess that means its time for bed!

Good night my friends!
