Christmas has come and gone, the last couple of days feel like they have flown by, I keep willing them to slow down so we can enjoy them before school begins again next week, but so far no luck.
Christmas we were lazy all day, just enjoying the day, our gifts, and time together. It was heavenly. To make things even better the snow has not stopped falling since Monday.
We made a big turkey dinner for Christmas day and loved having Rob's sister and her family join us.
Rob surprised me with a Kindle Fire, but the real miracle is that I let him surprise me, it was hard not to check the order history on Amazon to see what he bought, but I did it.
The first book I downloaded was Gretchen Rubin's The Happiness Project and I am really enjoying it.
I am taking notes and I am excited to start on my 2013 resolutions.
Yesterday Rob took Hunter and Samantha to Sundance to ski while Hannah and I stayed home. She painted and I brought some order to the mess left from Christmas. Samantha later left to sleep over at her cousins while Rob, Hunter, Hannah and I made Rice Krispie trains and watched Brave.
I have enjoyed not having to go anywhere or do anything these last couple of days, hopefully January will have many more days like these. I feel like I have been running since the first of November and it is great to have all of my obligations out of the way and a clear calendar ahead.
The plan for the next two days looks about the same, the snow is still falling and we don't have to go anywhere. We are going to snuggle up inside, watch movies, make turkey noodle soup, and I am going to catch up on all the unedited pictures on the computer.
