Christmas Break Is Officially Over

Well Christmas is over, the New Year is here…….time to return to school.  It’s not that I don’t want to, I guess I could just use another week off.  I had a whole list of organizational,  cleaning projects that I wanted to get done, but due to our whole family being sick this last week…….it didn’t get done. 

But, we did have a wonderful Christmas and New Year.  Here are some photos to share what we did do on our lovely break from school.

We had a Christmas party with our co-op and made some gorgeous Graham cracker houses.

Family came to visit us. I have to say I am very disappointed at my lack of pictures this Christmas!  We had a total of 5 family Christmas celebrations, plus my Dad coming over Christmas morning, and this is all I took!  Sorry Grandparents!

The babies had croup and the rest of us had a nasty cold.

Well despite the sickness and the chores that didn’t get completed, we had a wonderful Christmas.  We are so blessed to have each other and to be together as a family.  I am looking forward to this new year and all the great times we are going to have together!



  1. Love the photos ... such cute little kiddos. I really like the faces on the artwork!

  2. Great pictures. Whenever my kids have made graham cracker houses, they don't stay together very well. Yours came out really good.
