So I can barely keep my eyes open at this point...only and hour and half of sleep last from (Sunday night is not cutting it for me.) I am not complaining by any means, I feel so blessed to have been able to go one such a great trip with my hubby. I can tell you that as I type this I am counting down the minutes until I can deposit my sweet children in their own beds so mommy can run and dive into her own!! Today (yesterday as you read this) was such a great day with us all. We put up our Christmas tree and got all that squared away...laundry all done...house clean still...amazing huh!!!....lots of hang out time with the kids and I even made a whole bunch of chili!!! I learned very early in my day that I needed to stay in the upright and moving position or I didn't have a pray to make it through my day. For me I just didn't want to simply "make it through" my first day back, I wanted it all to happen with an honoring attitude. It's no one's fault that I am exhausted so I wanted to be very careful about my attitude towards everyone as I went through my day. I also wanted my children to know how glad I was to be home with them again...not be grumpy at them all day. So I am happy to report that with tons of prayer and slowly putting one foot in front of the other, we made without any "grumpy" episodes....Whew...I know that was all God working cause I just to crawl into bed and sleep away my exhaustion....but with my four kiddos I thought better of it.....even though Caleb was so cute and kept insisting I just go lay down and take a nap. In Caleb's words, "Mom, I will just keep Zach here at the table drawing....when he runs out of paper I can get him more. Julia can just watch her Elmo movie and I will keep an eye on her too, no problem Mom." Of course I thanked him for the offer, and then went about my business.......Well, no school work was accomplished. I knew for everyone's sake we could only take on so much our first day back home.......Really that is the least of my worries today........so that's the skinny on what is happening around here...in case you actually care!

BTW: Totally off the subject, but I wanted to let you know about a couple of other things we are doing this year for Christmas or things we have done in the past when it comes to donations and organizations we support this time of year......I am planning that for Wednesday....My hope is to start in on vacation photos (probably more than you want to see) Thursday........and then at the end of the week with a new GIVEAWAY!!!!
