Holiday hiatus

As you can tell, I've been taking a break from blogging for the holidays. The abridged version of our festivities is as follows:

Christmas Day was awesome from the gifts (both material and spiritual) to the prime rib dinner. I especially gave thanks for the five teen angels who made a wrapping paper mess of the living room and squealed with delight at their presents (both given and received).

Christmas Week was filled with challenges and triumphs...more later on this...but the triumphs outweighed the challenges.

Dad's birthday (12/30) and New Year's Eve/Day were spent away from home. We headed to New Hampshire in search of snow fun for a few days...we've enjoyed:
  • sledding, 
  • ice skating, 
  • swimming in the pool,
  • snowball fights and fort-building
We even rang in the New Year outdoors with a fire pit just for us! It didn't feel cold as we:
  • sipped hot chocolate, 
  • toasted marshmallows, 
  • ate S'mores,
  • played light up frisbee,
  • threw snowballs
We stayed up late last night, banged pots and pans at midnight, and drank sparkling cider. Today we slept in, ate too much, broke our Screenless Sunday rules, hung out in the Recreation Center, and generally were lazy. It felt good. We'll head home tomorrow and I'll get around to posting pics and details of our adventures. In the meantime, I have to go referee a ping pong match between my kids...then I think we'll have the rest of those S'mores.

Happy New Year!

As usual love your blogs. And the idea of screenless Sundays!

Mmm, S'mores. Been so long since I've had one of those.
