What are you waiting for?

Did you have a lovely Christmas? We did. Christmas Eve we headed down to Riverbank to spend the day with my cousins, aunt and uncle, mom, sister, dad and all the rest. It was nice to do that once again. Kids of course had a blast and the food was yummy.

We came home opened one present (our jammies) and read the night before Christmas.

The kids headed for bed and hubby and I took a short nap. Hubby was up before me and I got up around midnight. I finished up wrapping, stuffing, cleaning and preparing and hit the bed about 330 am. I thought for sure I would get to sleep till 9 ish...Ha! It use to be I had to wake the kids up but not anymore! I made them stay in their room till about 545 and let them get up. The unwrapping commenced and all was right with the world.

My bike was my very fav Christmas pressie. Kids got pretty much everything they asked for from Santa.

Now the day has gone already and we have a whole nother year to wait for it again. I always feel sad once its over. Seems to go so fast.

We also made gingerbread houses, went caroling and made a few ornaments.

This month was VERY stressful. At one point wasn't sure where or how Christmas was going to work out. I left it in gods hands and I have to say he provided. I love my family and even if there wasn't one present under our tree I would've been thankful we were all together, safe, happy, and healthy. They are my everything (husband and kids) and I am truly blessed.

I have Christmas decorations to put away, totes to organize, deadlines to meet and my girl cave is a huge mess! I have a whole week to do it in (not to mention I am sick). Do you think I can do it? I hope so.

I also have SF pics to share, Christmas shopping, and thrift store finds. Till then.

Love the jammies and bike! Sounds like you had a wonderful Christmas minus getting 2 hours of sleep. I would have made them wait until at least 6:30. What a nice mom you are!
