I’m somewhat sad tonight. It’s 5:30 pm on the last week-day of our Christmas break. I know we’re all ready for the structure of a set routine again next week, but I’m not ready for life as we knew it in the fall to zoom back in and take over again. Not at all.
So, for fun, I thought I’d recap what we did do over the past two weeks so that when I think of everything I didn’t get done and wanted to, I won’t fret. I didn’t waste the entire two weeks playing Scrabulous on Facebook.
We began our break with an electrifying experience at The Magic House. Here’s Chloe about to try out as a fly girl for Spinal Tap:
Hung out with cousins:
Made lots of cyber gingerbread houses:
Decorated a tree and wrapped a bunch of presents:
Gave each girl her own copy of The Jesus Storybook Bible in her stocking:
Hung out with more cousins:
Celebrated Maddie’s birthday:
Went go-cart racing with Craig, Katie, and Millie:
Prepared and participated in two Sabbath meals (and made my first homemade turkey pot pie ever. Yum!):
Enjoyed our new cubby-hole/coat-rack my dad built for me for Christmas:
Experienced my girls’ first time to stay up for the turning of the new year (they don’t look tired AT ALL, do they??):
Swept up a lot of confetti the next day:
Bought, separated, and rebagged a lot of meat:
And played my fair share of Cash Cow on the Webkinz site.
I suppose that’s a pretty full Christmas break, never mind that I didn’t touch my scrapbook stuff even once (and I was going to “catch up” over the break…). I want to give Katie her baby book as a birthday present for when she turns 6 next month. Yes, I’m *that* behind.
So, I’m signing off of Christmas break. Until next year (or at least until Spring break…) Life as we knew it resumes.
