I am not sure what my deal was this LAST year but I could not get it together.
We had a hard time getting the decorations out and up.
Then it seemed as though time started to fly by especially once the kids were out of school.
I did get Christmas gifts bought, wrapped, delivered and even helped out Santa for about 2 minutes.
Had an extended family Christmas Eve Party and even got the Luminaries up to guide the way for the Christ child!!
So Christmas comes and it is snowing!! A white Christmas!!
For Christmas dinner we had my brother, his wife and 3 kids from Texas here and my folks .
It was very enjoyable!
On Boxing Day we went to my sisters and the kids had a blast sledding down the mountain to the south of their property. They were outside for more then 4 hours and try as I might we could not get them to even come in for hot chocolate.
A view from my sisters front window--bit snowy. Coming home that night was a bit tricky with all the snow and mountain passes.
My folks ended up with sewer problems so that was a bit of a nightmare with all the extra guests.
Next freezing temperatures, hoping no pipes break, then came the sick kids and husband, YUCK.
My little niece and nephew into the Urgent Care for ear infections, but sewer and pipes at my folk's house are holding! Good News!!
We had a great New Year's Eve Party at the local church hall to save the strain on my folk's house.
My son and husband went Curling at the Olympic Oval to help ring in the new year and I aimed for bed early. Did not happen!
But with all this I did get to see "Les Miserables" and "Lincoln". Very rare for us to go see movies but these were in my opinion very good. I did not even know the story line of "Les Miserables" so it was really a treat to see one man's humanity for others.
School started today and I am for sure not ready...neither are my kids and now everyone is sick again. My son is home from school running a fever. Yippee!!
But I have a good feeling about 2013!
This year I will get it together!
(My only goal!)
Enjoy your day!
