Christmas - 4 down, 1 to go...

So, Christmas has been a very, very hectic time around here. We have had, so far, 4 Christmases (party at my mom's with my dad's friends from college on Sunday, opening gifts at my mom's on Monday, Santa dropping in on Tuesday, going to Milwaukee to see Stan's grandmother on Tuesday) and have one left - Christmas in Joliet with Stan's family, but we hold that one off for New Years day.
We'll be having our traditional New Year's Eve party that's not a party. Everyone with kids is invited to come and bring the kids with. We'll eat pizza and snacks and watch movies all night. If I can get things together (ha!) I'm going to try to clear out space in the basement so the kids can vanish down there and play. The girls best friends that are twins are coming so they are over the moon.
I am soooooooooo looking forward to school starting again and going back to work. I miss my routine!

We're 5 for 5

Kid #3 succumbed yesterday. At least we'll have all the fun of puking over before Christmas and I think the girls will all make it to their Holiday Party at school tomorrow.
I am tired, but actually slept through the night (well, 6 hours of sleep!!). I could use about 30 more, but that will have to wait until tomorrow night. I am off now (6am) to go to the 24 hour Wal-Mart for some supplies that I forgot for the girls craft for tomorrow and then hopefully the post office opens early and I can get some flat rate boxes to finish my Christmas shipping...

'Tis the season

For the stomach flu! It's running through our house right now, which explains why I am up at such a crazy hour (2 am). I started it off last Friday, Hannah followed on Saturday, Stan yesterday and Sarah about 1/2 an hour ago. Sigh....only one more kid for it to run through. At least we should be done before Christmas...
