Christmas Break

I hope everyone had a good Christmas. We did. It was just really nice. We didn't do much, just stayed at my parents house and then came home Christmas night. I sleep so much better in my own bed.

I got a lot of really nice things. I know it's not about the presents, but it was a good year for me! The kids got a lot of fun stuff too. Overall we just had a nice time and now Christmas is over! It went so fast. It almost seemed like any other day that we just happened to throw in opening some gifts and cooking a turkey. But no, it was Christmas and now a new year is upon us.

I do feel a little out of sorts, just because of the Christmas break. Public school keeps my sanity in tact! It's like Saturday everyday of the week, and that's my hardest day of the week, because I have all three for an extended period of time. But we'll make it through, and really they've been doing well. I've been able to sleep until 9a.m. the last two mornings. Madi makes breakfast for her and Kyle and Mason just hangs out in his bed playing. Yes, I kind of have a little of a mess to clean up when I get up, but it's worth it to me. She knows how to start the DVD player, so they watch a movie and are generally pretty quiet. And things like that I know will only continue to get better the older they get, because they will be able to do more and more for themselves. I'm trying to get Kyle to become a little more resourceful. He wants everything done for himself! And I just cant.

Anyways, well that's what's going on around our house. Hope y'all have a great rest of the week; what's left of it!

First off, LOVE that picture of youin the red vest, you look GREAT! Also, glad you had such a wonderful Christmas all around. It IS nice when they can do at least some things for themselves. We have finally gotten Ty to turn the tv on and to his channel and make his stuff at night so all he has to do is open the fridge door. He gets up around 6 so its nice to not have to get up with him! Olivia on the otherhand sleeps or sits until we go get her! SOOO nice! Hope to see you soon. We are stil at my family's house in Arlington but will be back Sun.

I'm ready for school to start again, too!!! Never thought I'd say that - Taelor starting school was hard, but I'm ready for her to return.
I'll get another post up soon. Trying to figure out how to download pics from my new camera!!!

I love this line " public school helps me keep my sanity." LOL! That should be on a list of quotes. :) Today is our last day of vacation and I must admit the routine will be nice again. I'm lost without bell to bell schedules. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
