It’s Monday morning. The kids are back at school. The house is quiet. And I’m having my second cup of coffee. Want to join me as I sort through some Christmas vacation pictures?
This was our annual family picture by the tree. A friend saw the picture on face book and made the comment, “Short trees are for old people. What’s up with that...I see the stand!" My defense? There is something to be said for a tree you can:
a. Carry one-handed,
b. Decorate before the attention spans of the kids expire, and
c. Light with the one strand of lights that still works. :)
I like to think I've gotten smarter in my old age, lol!
Looking back over the last two weeks, I have to say, our Christmas was really nice. We did not travel east. So I missed seeing our families who live in Pennsylvania, Maryland and Delaware. But we had extra time to relax, which was a gift since we were passing around the flu.
As it turned out, it was a LEGO and Soccer kind of Christmas, with each person finding something to be excited about. For the little guy, mostly LEGO, for my older two, it was soccer jerseys, cleats and video games.
I’m so glad that the boys have each other to hang out with. And that they all have interests in common. None are too old for a good LEGO battle, nor too young for a history channel original. Though I wouldn’t mind if there were less of the second! Lol!
Greta kept making her way into pit pictures. She is the most easygoing dog we have ever had. And we are loving having her in our family.
This was part of the LEGO Winter Village Post Office set—which had topped my little guy’s wish list for months. This house even lights up! They didn’t have things like this when I played with LEGO!I’m so thankful to have snagged it in a lot on EBay for an awesome deal before the prices skyrocketed. What would I do without EBay? (I mean, BESIDES clean my house? Lol!)
I have lots more pictures to sort through. But I should probably get a shower and at least attempt to tackle some cleaning. Maybe you can join me tomorrow to sort through some more! I have pictures of the blizzard, the zoo, our soccer games, and even some of our snow sculptures. Till tomorrow!
