phewf...

I am tired! Thankfully I am on 2 weeks of vacation....not that there'll be a lot of down time but that's ok...I can putter around here in my pj's and I don't have to get up at 6:30am.
I just have to say that now that I have been both a parent and a staff member at school, I have a new found appreciation for what goes on and how many hours of behind the scenes work goes into education and extra curricular activities the school offers!
I am soooo close to being done shopping. Brian and I spent 7 hours yesterday traveling to and from the city shopping. I think I know 4 boys who are not going to know what hit them this year. Not that we went overboard but we just got them some cool stuff...some off their lists and some not! I love knowing how excited they'll be when they see it...it's such a good secret!!
I am doing some wrapping today...have to...running out of room to stash stuff and it'll get spotted if I don't. I am making our home made oreos today...and some sugarplums. We are also cleaning this house from top to bottom.
Christmas tunes are already blasting from the surround sound. The boys are in a pretty good mood, so am I so it should be a good day! Let today be the first day of getting this house in order for when I go back to work next year! That's the plan for the next 2 weeks. As well as getting in some quality family time that we have been lacking since I started working full time. Brian will be home the entire time so that helps too. That really is what it's all about...especially at this time of the year.
In case I don't get a chance to do another blog post before Christmas, I want to wish you and yours a Happy Holidays filled with lots of love and laughter.

Sounds like you're going to have a great two weeks. I will have a good Christmas if the snow stops long enough for traveling. I would like to wish you and yours a Very Merry Christmas and may all your wishes come true.
