I make lists of how I will spend my afternoons after work, my days off, the weekend, and somehow...I never accomplish anything that I set my mind to doing. This includes blogging or heck, even logging into Blogger! Needless to say, I am in the process of reading and catching up on a month's worth of blog posts. I have only managed to read the last two weeks of blogs so far.
I am getting together all of Max and Harper's old clothing, shoes, and toys to sell in another consignment sale. I did one in August and we made some really good money. So, hoping to make even more in this February sale. The only problem is that these sales take a lot of my time and energy. I spent last Monday and Tuesday of my Christmas break gathering and tagging everything. Daycare really saved me on that! They were closed Wednesday through Friday last week so I knew being productive the rest of the week was impossible. I love those two munchkins...but I can't do anything!
Let's see...Christmas was fun. To see their faces and smiles, to hear their giggles, and to see them play was fantastic. However, two 1 1/2 year olds are exhausting. Naps were missed. Tears were shed (they cried some too), baby fights were had, and food was thrown. But we survived. One thing to be thankful for at the moment is that neither have caught the nasty influenza that seems to have infiltrated the area. Gosh! I hope we don't have to face that illness!
Here are some Christmas pictures:
|Opening gifts in his SuperMan cape, of course!|
|She got a Frozen cape|
|He was loving the whole paper|
|She loved strutting around showing off her presents.|
|Playing in their kitchen Santa brought them|
|We kept our tree in our basement so they really didn't get to see it much!|
|We bought a potty. This is in great hopes they may be ready soon!|
|Loving the chair|
|Santa brought us Frozen! So why not eat breakfast at our new table and watch it for the first time?! We have now seen it about 5...going on 500.|
|I wish I got a better picture of his dapper outfit that day!|
|Baby cousins are so much fun!|
|I love this picture of reading time before bed! It is one of my favorites we have ever captured.|
|Waiting to see Santa|
|They were so happy...|
|Until we set them on the big guy's lap!! (This picture is priceless!)|
|Really great family picture...|
|A tad better! All in our corny matchy-matchy KC shirts!|
I am working on a couple other posts so hopefully I will get those marked off my list this week. I go back to work Friday...we will see!
I hope you had a very happy holiday spent with those that love you and that you love.
