The Aftermath...

Our Holiday was wonderful.  Low key this year, no traveling just our family enjoying our time together.  Dinner at my aunts and a visit to the newest baby in the family and back home.  Yesterday was spent at the hospital, as most of you know the baby business doesn't shut down for the holidays so I went to work.  Now Greg is back at work and today is the day...I must deal with the "aftermath".  There was much rejoicing, crafting, playing, building, sledding, singing, dancing and music making around here over the long weekend and not much tidying up. 
New Legos need to find new homes...yes there were plenty of hand-made gifts this year, but there were purchased gift as well.  Lego is huge around here right now for the boy AND the girl.
Christmas packages need to get in the mail...yes that's right, I habitually don't get things in the mail in time for ANYTHING!  It is a terrible flaw that I would love to change about myself...but alas, here we are as always.
Our new globe needs a special spot that hasn't been decided yet.  My sweet children bought this globe for me this year, and they are extra proud!  I've been wanting one forever and they decided to make it happen.  How lucky am I?
I'll spare you all the REAL aftermath, the vacuuming that's been ignored, the dishes that haven't been done, things like that.  Instead I'll leave you with what I WANT  to be doing right now instead of getting the house in order.

Has anyone sewn from this book yet?  I'm so excited to get started!  I've got a whole wardrobe in mind...My sweet honey is too good to me.


  1. Oh yes the lovely aftermath!!! We can strategize together on how to contain and reorganize it all. I got a bread machine and artisan breads book that I am dying to use!!!

  2. Merry Christmas Angie!
    You know, I think this was the first year in many years that I have NOT bought Legos! I didn't even realize it until I read your post.
    I'm not a seamstress,but your book looks lovely.

  3. Yay! Sounds like you all had fun! We have some new lego here, too! And a couple of parcels yet to send as well....oops. I love your new globe! So beautiful! Good luck finding homes for everything...that is always the challenge here. xoR

  4. O wow! I really would like a globe lamp. Your a lucky lady :)

  5. Ask your kids to do the dishes. Get them to help you around the house. I'm sure they would. They love you.
