Only time will tell what I will do with my newfound free time. What I do know is that I will continue to try my hardest to enjoy this short period when I have kiddos home with me who want to be around me. Even on our most overwhelming days, they always know how to put a smile on my face and close the day out with love and a snuggle. That is a treasure I wouldn't give up for all the time in the world.
We are in the heart of cold and flu season. With three active kids (two of whom are in school), a lot of germs go through our house. With those germs come many fevers. Many, many fevers.

They say there's no place like home for the holidays, but for us, the magic of Christmas is not lost when we don't wake up in our own beds Christmas morning. The magic of Christmas for our family is cousins piling on each other like puppies, Grandma baking too many cookies, and aunts and uncles bantering. Santa still finds us, and we get to share the excitement with our extended family. We may not have Christmas at home, but it's our holiday tradition, and it's special to us. Christmas may never be at "home," but home is when we are all together.
