Merry Christmas!

Things are just winding down for the day.  The kids stayed up late to play with their new toys from Santa, the dishes are done and the house is about as close to back together as it's going to get tonight.  Which is not very far. 
The holidays are a lot of work for me...and for most, I presume.  The days leading up to the big one can be frantic and very long.  But at the heart of everything - the reason I want to do it all - is the joy on the faces of my boys on Christmas morning.  Along with the family traditions that are making lifelong memories for them.  I'm looking forward to the upcoming week of school vacation - no homework, no alarm clock, no sports.  Just having time to enjoy all the new fun stuff we have to play with. 
I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas!
