much needed break.

{inspiration for this idea here}

Happy 2010!

It has been so refreshing to spend the past two weeks almost completely unplugged.
So good to just do... nothing!
We were rarely seen in anything but jammies.

We love totally soaking up Christmas.
Christmas music.
Christmas stories.
Christmas movies.
Christmas baking.
Christmas crafting.
December 26th is always so depressing.

I think we are all pretty sad that tomorrow is back-to-school.
Lounging all day vs. Piling grumpy kids in the car at the crack of dawn?
I know what I prefer.

But, here we are. Back to reality.
And ready for a fresh start!

Here are just a few highlights of our time off.

{thanks again for doing our card, Mel!}

We had those same ornaments and my daughter was wearing those same PJ's on Christmas morning.

Twins! ;)

How the heck did Camden grow up all of a sudden?!

And does someone have to be related to you to keep in touch these days?

I miss you! And I demand to see those children before they get ANY bigger.

Looks like you guys had a great winter break. Happy New Year!

While the early morning and back to school routine was daunting today, I have to say, it feels good to be back on track. Of course, Luke has a fever and threw up. is quiet, and the house NEARLY empty, and there is something nice about putting away the stockings and starting brand new.

But yes. The 26th? SO depressing, although I think I hit an all time low on New Years DAY.

Glad to move on...

Happy New Year, gorgeous!!!! Can't wait to follow your talents through 2010!

So glad you're back - and so glad you get to soak up all that Christmas is, in your jammies with your family. Your pictures are great - that Camden is such a doll! And I love your cards. xo

I know.. it is hard to go back to the grind. I miss the open-schedule and waking up whenever I feel like it. Back to reality. When is summer coming? Love the Wizard of Oz Pez???? Fabulous. Best movie ever.
