Has been a very busy three days. The children arrived home safe from college and the house is hopping again. Music, television, phone ringing and food flying out of the cabinets and fridge. Sleeping seems to be high on my son's agenda. If he sits down for more than two minutes he falls sound asleep. Laundry is a mile high in the laundry room and my hubby has retreated to the bedroom to watch the football. It is so great to have them home. It feels like a home again too.
Went to our first Christmas party on Saturday night and it was a bit of a yawn, but we were glad to get home early. We watched "Deck the Hall" with the kids and then they put us to bed around midnight. Today was our nieces fist birthday and it was a good time. Pizza and cake for the children and apple martinis for the adults. Green for the holiday you know!
When we came home we decorated the tree and now everyone is snacking and getting ready for bed. Even Oliver is pooped from snooping in every box that came up from the basement. Each ornament has been lovingly sniffed by him and meets his approval (Not the best shot of the tree. I don't know how to adjust the lighting. I guess I should read the instruction book)!
Off from work tomorrow to hit the stores for the last push to finish up shopping and then the wrapping and baking begins, in between work and three more parties. No knitting is being done and what is finished will go out as gifts. What isn't finished will be done after the New Year and saved for the next year! Maybe that way I can get a jump on next Christmas. Have a great start of the week and take some time for yourself.
