To anyone who "does" Christmas several times each year, you're my hero.
Tomorrow will make Christmas #3 for us and...
This is the first time my Christmas celebrations have fallen outside of December 24-25. We've basically been Christmas-ing since last Friday. We kicked it off with my awesome mom and dad, pictured below.
If we all look a little bleary-eyed, it's because we stayed up all hours playing Wii ping-pong, bowling, and snowboarding.
Aside from Wii-ing and eating a lot of food, we did a mini-Christmas play. I couldn't resist this pic of our pretend "Mary."
Thankfully, as my mom put it on Wednesday, "Wii go home!"
I am now sleeping again, and I've also regained use of my left arm.
Which gave me all the energy I needed to barely scrape by, in time for Christmas #2. We had a great day today with a wild and wacky bunch on my hubby's side.
I absolutely loved all the yummy southern holiday food, and the noisy, full house of people milling around, taking endless pictures, and reminiscing over endless memories together.
If my kids look a little bleary-eyed, it's because they are so stinkin' tired from opening thousands of presents.
Hopefully they can bounce back in time for Christmas #3, which starts tomorrow morning.
I thought I had enough for this year.
Until we got home tonight and put our kids in bed. I set our table for a cozy Christmas breakfast, arranged a few things around the tree, and breathed a big sigh.
I can't wait to soak in a quiet day with my precious kids and to relax with my hubby, who has been working his tail off and helping out with the kids.
Christmas #3 might be just what I need to recover from 1 and 2. Stay tuned for more pics later...except I won't be in them.
I plan to be behind the camera, in my pajamas!
