The last of our Christmas guests left this morning and I am busy getting my house back in order. I have a trillion loads of laundry to sort and put away. I need to organize my daughter's toy haul in her bedroom, wash my floor, throw away all the leftover treats (this one will be the most difficult) and come up with some sort of dinner plan that doesn't include cocktail wieners and crescent rolls (which is about what I have left in the refrigerator - so let's add get to the grocery store to the list!) Mr. Fantastic is back at work and I am here with my three children - 4 extra children (make that 5, someone else just came to the back door) and almost 3 feet of snow (and ALL the snow gear that comes with it)
Here is our last week in pictures:
Santa came on the firetruck:
I made a rockin' veal goulash with dumplings for Sunday dinner:
The kids received emails from Santa:
I wrapped, and wrapped and wrapped and wrapped.......
My parents came and we went to Christmas Eve Mass:
Everyone came over for Christmas Eve Dinner:
Sorry folks... too tired at this point to take pictures!
Some of the McAlindins came and we had a BLIZZARD (Oh, and another dinner was served):
