I am a terrible blogger. Unfortunately, being a better blogger isn't going to be my resolution.
So December has flown by, we will have been home for a full month come Monday. What have we been doing this past month. Well, I can't say that we have been super busy. We have spent a lot of time together as a family of five.
On December 11th we took our kids on a train ride to the North Pole. We have done it every year since M has been home. You get to take an hour ride on a vintage train to the North Pole and see Santa. Then you ride the train back to the depot. The kids love it!
On December 14th E had his tonsils and adenoids removed. He had a hard time with the recovery, especially at night. We are now just a little over two weeks since surgery and he is healed and waiting for the ok to eat popcorn again!
We spent Christmas at home, just the five of us. While it was different than normal for us it was nice to have some down time together after the last two months. We spent Christmas day laying around the house, kids playing with their new toys and mom and dad watching the Hallmark Channel.
I returned to work part time on December 22nd and daddy is staying home with the kids for now. S has adjusted very well to her new home and family. While she still prefers to be with mommy she can be daddy's girl when I am at work.
New Years Eve is a great deal like Christmas, the five of us laying around doing puzzles, reading books and watching the Disney Channel.
Wishing you all a Happy and Blessed New Years!
