A really great Christmas!

Hello all!

I hope everyone is recovering nicely from all of the festivities! I always love the Christmas season but am always glad to see it come to a close as well. Our house was very successful this year in that we all got most of what we were hoping for and extras that we didn't ask for but still were glad to receive. That is a great bonus! My favorite gift this year came from DH. He got me the most beautiful royal purple bathrobe. It is the softest thing I have ever felt! DH got an insulated hoodie from me along with some hand cream that is super spectacular if you are someone whose fingers tend to split in the winter. It healed all three of his split fingers in less than 12 hours!! He was thrilled! And DS got a Razor scooter that he was soooo excited about. He hasn't stopped scooting since he opened it.

With all of the snow we've had, I haven't driven anywhere in almost two weeks! Needless to say, I'm going stir crazy! Today is the beginning of the great thaw though, it's supposed to get up into the 40's. The roads are looking better and we're in desperate need of some food staples like milk, eggs, and produce so we are venturing out for the first time in a long time. I feel like a hermit and am super glad to be emerging from my cave. I might even peek at the clearance Christmas items and see if there are any deals too good to pass up.

I've already taken down all of the decorations with the exception of the lights outside because those are still frozen in most places. It feels nice to have the house back to normal.

Hopefully everyone is well and enjoying what's left of the season! For now, I'm off to take a shower and head the the store. Wish me luck!

Our tree is down, too. I was so ready for things to look like their normal chaos instead of normal chaos with tinsel and bows.
