Tidy Victory - we got the house cleaned up so you could actually see the dining room and kitchen table tops - that's the REAL reason we invite people over, i.e. forced clean up. :)
In celebration of such a lovely holiday season this year, I shall make a list of 5+ ways that you know you had a smashingly successful holiday. I will include pictures where appropriate.
<One> Your kids enjoy watching their new toys CHARGE UP as much as they love playing with them.
|"Buddy, what are you doing in the bathroom?"|
"Mom Mom, I'm waiting for his eyes to turn green."
<Two> Your husband is EXCITED to go shopping with you to purchase/return/exchange gifts (sans kids).
<Three> You didn't feel like a complete sloth when you realized you literally stayed in your pajamas ALL DAY LONG. How easy to get ready for bed now!
<Four> You gained AT LEAST 7.5 pounds.
<Five> Christmas threw up (see previous post A Teacher's Christmas Vacation Goals, goal number 4) in your finished basement and you are at peace with that.

<Six> You've been eating Christmas dinner leftovers since Christmas and they still taste PHENOMENAL.
<Seven> You've been eating Christmas cookies since Christmas and they still taste PHENOMENAL.
<Seven.five> You are already planning your Christmas card for next year! :)
I hope everyone had a lovely holiday with your friends & families and welcome to the new year - 2015 here we go!
New year - new jams!
