Favorite kind of day

We had a great Christmas and New Years. Santa was very good to us this year. But I am so happy to have it past and be starting in on a New Year. I look forward to this year. Especially if I have many days like today. But first, some Christmas photos.

Here is little man (Ryan) on Christmas morning. So excited!

Hannah showing off her "maskic wand and tatoo". (Magic wand and tutu).

All of us on Christmas Day at my parent's house. I think its a cute picture. Too bad I look like my eyes are about to roll back in my head.
But about today:
I love days like today. Blaine didn't have to work and neither did I. We had no obligations other than trying to get control of our out-of-control house and towering pile of laundry. It was too cold to even think about going outside so we stayed in. The kids (who have been sick) are feeling somewhat better today. We all made dinner tonight. Together. My kids love to cook and were so excited that we were cooking shrimp. Our dinner was divine! We had fettucine alfredo with shrimp scampi. We had a spinach salad with poppyseed dressing. And for dessert we had molten lava cakes. (Don't think for one minute that we eat like this every night.) The best part about dinner was that we made it all from scratch and we made it all together. Everyone was happy. No fighting. No bawling. One happy family. At the end of this day I feel content. And very full.

Here is Garrett. Licking the bowl from the molten lava cake batter. Mmmmm....
