So it is official. The Holidays are exhausting. We arrived home on Friday night, just tired. I have a few pictures of NH but not nearly as many as I would have liked. We are hosting a small New Years Eve gathering so we have been quite busy preparing for that. It will be nice …

We celebrated Christmas this morning since we will be in NH for the actual holidays. Rather than lug the large things to NH we decided that we would ask Santa to come to our house a little early. Aly had a great time with opening the gifts, she opened everyones for them. Brianna just loved …

We have been talking to Aly about Santa and everytime she sees Santa she gets excited. I don’t think she grasps the whole concept of Santa but she has been soooo excited about Christmas. She does get the presents piece. Yesterday I picked her up from school and she had a present wrapped for Mom …

I will post some pics tomorrow but I figured I would say that I survived the flight with Aly and Brianna by myself. It was not as bad as I had imagined that it could be. Thank you DVD player, Dum Dum lollipops, and M&M, I am forever greatful.

Even though we leave for Iowa tomorrow, we have been decorating for Christmas.
