It's been a great day so far, and I'm so thankful for this break from school. Being at home all day with my kids feels like such a luxury! We did some Christmas shopping (I think we are thankfully DONE) and I have dinner in the crockpot so the whole house smells yummy. (Mexican Chicken Soup - a new recipe - I'll let you know how it turns out.) I've been wrapping presents and watching movies and then (brace yourselves) cleaning. I know. The mind reels. But ignoring housework for three months has consequences.
