Year End Catch Up

Even though I am a terrible blogger these days, I figured I would try and recap all the Christmas festivities before the year ends.  We had a busy month and while it was enjoyable, I have to admit I am kind of glad it is over.  My in-laws left yesterday morning (Chatty cried ... a lot) ... Mr. ESPN went to work ... I think he strategically plans it that way so he doesn't have to help get the house back in order.  All of the Christmas decorations are down and back in the attic ... courtesy of me.  My arms look like I got in a fight with my tree and the tree won.  But it is snugly in it's box in the garage cabinet so I am happy.  So back to the festivities ... warning - picture overload - I am too lazy to separate into more than one post.

  • The girls saw Santa at Boys and Girls Club - with Bia acting her normal shy self.
  • We decorated sugar cookies with Nana

  • We decorated our reusable Gingerbread (plastic) house.

  • The Godfather stopped by for a visit with his mom and sister. 
  • We attended Christmas Eve services and our kids were better behaved than most in attendance (that's what I call a Christmas miracle)

  •  Santa and Grandparents brought lots of great gifts to the family including an iPAD, soccer goal, camera, soccer clothes, Just Dance 3, puzzles, movies, etc.

That's wrap ... time to go play Just Dance 3 with the girls ... I hope you all had a great holiday!!

Hello stranger! Thanks for stopping by blog land even though I am also a pathetic blogger and will bore you with 2011 for the rest of the week.

You all look picture perfect in your Christmas outfits.

I wish my family were gamers because I so badly want to play Just Dance 3. Someone adopt me quick.

I absolutely must have a plastic gingerbread house. That is just genius. Truly.

Dumb question, but do you just wash it off?

It looks like you had a wonderful time with your family. I'm trying to get back on track and back into routine.
