The kids are officially on Christmas break as of this Monday. My ambitions for the week are (I hope) reasonable. My only plans:
Monday - Wrap Presents and Sort
Tuesday - Visit nursing home to deliver gifts and play piano. (kids)
Wednesday - Make chocolate covered stuff
(The kids are playing "poor family", and they're having such a good time I don't want to make them stop. They're begging and bartering for shillings, then using them to buy weapons, fabric etc. to improve their lot in life. Oh, and they keep asking me to buy pets. (Apparently I'm the shopkeeper.) I don't know how to explain that pets are kind of a luxury item.
Thursday - Have our Christmas here, pack for trip
Friday - Drive home for the holidays.
Can't wait to see everyone this next week. We'll miss those of you who aren't able to make it down this year.
Merry Christmas from me and the crazy squealing kiddos. And Art. He's at work, but his Christmas vacation starts right after lunch today. (Yea!!)
