It's sure been busy in mine!
As I think over the last few weeks, it can only be recapped with a handy, chronologically organized list, with photos interspersed. Or maybe a chronologically organized sampling of photos, with a list interspersed. I'll let you know at the end which one it is.
A Christmas Program
Hockey practice, in which Matt has to pull the boys off the ice before their toes freeze off at the -10^ outdoor hockey rink!
My company Christmas party
Matt's dad's family's Christmas gathering (that's an awful lot of apostrophes!)
Sleeping under the Christmas Tree
A day at mom & dad's for a Christmas Eve family gathering
A fun, relaxing Christmas Day at home
Christmas with Matt's mom & DennisBean bags and Lion King tickets - they were both kings!
The Hull family gathering
Skipped hockey for some snowmobiling fun
The big bedroom and closet clean-out
The boys play Legos at my work while I try to get some things doneThe cleaning lady only finds one stray - great job, boys!
A family New Year's Eve at Michael's, then the movies (Storyteller)
A fairly lazy New Year's Day, sleeping off the apple cider induced coma
Housework and sledding - not necessarily in that order
A fun evening at Cali's wedding reception. Jane and Cali, you did a most fabulous job! It was great to see everyone.
A meeting to present candidates to fill the open Prosecutor position in our county
Church and Sunday School
The great bathroom clean-out
First day of school - no, wait - SNOW DAY! Much fighting and whining from spoiled brats who are ready for Christmas break to be done already. Then I woke the boys up. A bit of Christmas undecorating, some more sledding, and an Animal Crossing marathon.
Finally, back to "normal". Work and school resume on schedule. And, you guessed it - more hockey.
So, what do you think, was it a list?
I'll tell you what I think - I had a real list. Of things I wanted to do during those 10 days off. Not many things got crossed off. Except for the fun. We definitely accomplished that one.
