Post-holiday sugar coma

Second to Christmas, I am now enjoying my second favorite time of year. The post-Christmas, I ate too much, feelin' the love of all my family and friends, I don't have to work vacation.

OK, it probably ties the summer at the lake vacation, but with indigestion instead of sunburn.

Its nice, while its freezing or snowing outside, or, like this year, doing both, to be able to sit in your warm house with your over-sugared children and just...be.

Because we had some pre-holiday holiday get-togethers and because we're heading out of town tomorrow to do a holiday thing with Hubby's Dad and family, we stayed in our PJs yesterday while Hub's Mom came over for brunch and then decided it was proper attire for the rest of the day. We catched Wall-E (gift from Santa!) and How the Grinch Stole Christmas (the movie version) and ate left-overs and cookies and played with new toys.

Today is more of the same - after they get up from their naps we'll probably head out to run errands, but there's no stress. No rushing. No urgency. I love it...

Do your kids sit in boxes and buckets and baskets a lot? There are several of these photos around your blog are there not?

Glad you had a lazy day, we did too - kind of, if you count buying bedroom furniture and trying to spend vouchers with a 6 year old lazy.

We have some after-Christmas money to spend. And today it's supposed to get up to 70, so we may just venture out! I agree, no rushing is great.

I LOVE post-Christmas! Love, love, love. I don't want to sound like a Scrooge, but GAH...we haven't stopped since Christmas Eve and finally...FINALLY...there is no where to go expect to the kitchen, bathroom and back to the couch. *Breathe* Ahhhh.

I, too, love that little lull right after Christmas. It is the best time of year, for me. And your boys are too cute.
