Moving At A Snails Pace
I think the majority of my family has been in their pajama's for the better part of two weeks.

Hubby and I had great plans for all the things we were going to get done around the house while he was off for the two weeks after Christmas. How many of those things have we actually gotten done or even started?

That would be none. Nil. Nada.

We did put the Christmas decorations away. It's only taken us three days of very slow movement.

Today I had to venture out and buy food. I went to three stores to stock up. The kids were so excited to actually see food in the cupboards again.

The thought of having to step it up into high gear again starting next Monday depresses me to no end.

I really don't understand why we can't spend our lives laying around in pajama's, watching movies, and playing games.

I think this might just have been the best Christmas ever. Less presents. More Jesus. Lots of down time and just being together.

For once I can't wait until next year. I'm not exhausted and tired of the mess.

When I was putting the decorations away I was actually thinking I can't wait until next year.

This has NEVER happened before.

It's taken us sixteen years but we have finally figured out how to have a great Christmas with our kids. We are slow learners.

Better late than never.

Next up. Pictures of our Dance Dance Revolution Marathon. I am really really bad at it.

Sounds like a wonderful Christmas!

I too am feeling a little tired and slow. All the fun and partying ended way to soon for me. It goes by in a flash, but we are looking forward to a brand new year and all the blessings it brings.

Wishing you and your family, Julie, a fantastic and safe new year with lots of blessings!

Well atleast you are doing better than me. I got sick a few days after Christmas and have been not very functional. We usually try to take down everythin on New Years Day, but everything is still up. Hopefully I will get it put away before next week. I also need to go to the grocery fridge is down to condiments!

Well, our decorations are not put away. I would like them to be, but we just haven't done it yet (although we have taken down the tree and a few decorations).

I'm really glad to hear that you had a fantastic Christmas and are looking forward to next year.

Sounds like a perfect Christmas. I am a big fan of pjs and wearing them for extended periods of time! :)

We have been feeling the exact same way! We're suppose to be getting our house ready to sell but, instead, we layed around all day, watching the kids play and watching play-off my pajamas let me note!:)

I hope you have a great week!

That's awesome! Believe it or not, we haven't even taken down the tree yet in our family room -- gulp.

I'm so glad you guys had such a wonderful Christmas! I hope that getting back into the routine of things hasn't been too much of a downer.

And! There is not much better than a DDR marathon in pajamas!!
