Well we are back from West Palm Beach. We had a great Christmas. It was 80 degrees and sunny and I loved it. It was 40 degrees, rainy, and everything was dead when we left and it was just as ugly when we got back. Sigh, I had started thinking about my garden and painting the railing on my porch. I got to see an old friend and was so happy to see her(psst, Lauren that's you!). We got all kinds of great loot. I think our toy bin doubled, groan. Does anyone actually keep there kid's toys organized? We will probably never try to do an all night drive again. We thought the kids would sleep through the whole trip . That was until we stopped for gas and turned around. Three pairs of wide grumpy eyes greeted us and two thumbs were being vigorously sucked on to no avail. They stayed awake till 4am before nodding off! Not happy campers. The 12 hours on the way back in daylight went much better. I am a loser because I didn't take pictures but I'll get some from my Mom and post them soon.

Thanks for the shout out!! Seeing you "in your element" with your kids was a treat for ME. I appreciate your wisdom and friendship- no matter how far between our visits might be.
Happy New Year!

I sympathize with the heaps of new toys. It's fun to see the children get excited over their new things, but the toys do begin to take over the upstairs! My concession to organization was stowing many of the kids' old toys in the attic and buying a 3-drawer plastic storage bin for the new stuff. Just jam it all in there!
