Oh hey, Friday! - 5+ Ways You Know You Had a Smashingly Successful Holiday

Messy Messy Fail - had some friends come over for a brunch and I didn't let the Cinnamon Roll Cake bake long enough - slightly mushy in the middle still!  However we had no problem eating it still.

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.

I know you are jealous of our groovy rug.  "It came with the frame." - The Burbs

<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!
