1. We did a whole lot of nothing. LOL After 4 days of celebrating Christmas plus the weeks previous full of prep I was so tired and worn out. My husband was back to work on the 27th so the kids and I just lazed around most the week with no plans and no schedules. It was great! New Years was uneventful too…everyone but myself and my oldest son had gone to bed way before midnight. :( What a bunch of party poopers!

    BTW…I love the photos you shared. The ones of your kids on Christmas made me think of all the Christmases I had growing up in a large family. :) I have 5 siblings and Christmas was always magical…it always brought us all together in a special way.

    • Sounds like the perfect relaxing break to me!! I always wish I went to bed before midnight on New Years Day ;)! I like big families too! We had a good time! Thanks Patti! You are one of my regulars…thanks for always leaving a sweet comment! I have noticed!

  2. I ended up going into labor on Christmas later on in the evening, and having my son on December 26th at 2:30 in the morning! It was so nice to sit back and enjoy Christmas eve and day with my two little ones, then bring a new little one into the world, and have my husband home for a week. We kinda just soaked it all in, relaxed a whole lot, played with new toys, and enjoyed each other’s company. It was perfect, my favorite Christmas season yet.

    Thanks for sharing your pictures with us, the photos of all of your kids together brought a smile to my face. I like to see big, happy families. :)

    • Yay! That is the best Christmas ever! So glad you had so much time to have the perfect Holiday and then be able to have a great recovery time with the husband home to help. That makes such a huge difference…especially with two other little ones under foot! Congratulations on the new baby!

  3. amy- I laughed out loud with the photo in the pantry at Shelly’s house. I have emailed Shelly a few times and always think of kristin chenoweth (and i tell her this). Loved the front entry rug (looks vaguely familiar). My son and husband are headed to SLC area for a tennis tournament and then up to see friends in Park City. Thanks for the inspiration and laughs. Happy and Healthy New Year! xo, [email protected]
