Here's where we finally took a winter break! Instead of taking the week before Christmas off, we are taking the week after. That week is usually anything less than restful. I thought the boys would enjoy some time to enjoy their gifts. I know some folks take 2 weeks off at Christmas. Instead we will take another break coming up in February. I'm trying to take more regular breaks instead of ending so soon like we did last year.
This is my mom's idea of Christmas chocolate. Ha! She was more excited to see my reaction than to see the kids' faces. I have never been able to stop her from being generous. I just let her now. Someday I'm sure I'll be the same kind of Grandma.
