I love these days between Christmas and New Year's.
Here's what it's looked like around here the last few days:
:: mornings for sleeping in.
:: kids staying in their pajamas all day.
:: dishes piling up like there's no tomorrow.
:: me trying to maintain tidy and order.
:: a run in the sun. (so great to finally be out again.)
:: games and puzzles and noses in new books.
:: bed and breakfast overnighter in the big city.
:: dinner and a movie (Lebanese + The Secret Life of Walter Mitty = GOOD)
:: afternoon outing to Trader Joe's and an Indian market.
:: and talk about a big sigh of relief. Eliza's mural (we estimate she's put close to 300 hours staying after school and working on it on Saturdays) at last coming to completion. We are so proud of not only her artistic talents, but most especially for her complete dedication and vision in seeing this masterpiece through to the very end.
Way to go Puppy-Love!!
