And All Through The House...

For the last hour, our three kids have been; shooting each other with Nerf guns, running up and down the stairs and building tents in the basement. I told Husband that even though the noise level rivals that of a rock concert, I'm so glad they still play together at times.

Meanwhile, our English Mastiff, Juno, continues to crash despite the clamor, probably since she recently had surgery.

I chuckle when I tell friends and family what our dog got for Christmas, "Juno got a hysterectomy!"

Last week we had two Christmas concerts to attend. Many of you know that I don't post our kids' photos for privacy reasons, but our seven-year-old is here, and let's be honest, trying to find her would be like trying to find Waldo. And I like this photo because it's amazing how first-graders have a hard time staying in one position.

We are hanging out in jammies today, recovering from all the festivities, food and fanfare of the holidays and looking forward to visiting the stores this week to buy more "stuff," for ourselves, this time.

Happy holidays and see you next year! :)


  1. aw Juno is adorable and I giggled myself too!

    Christmas concerts ... I barely remember being that little but I remember the times in high school and we barely paid attention than as well.

    Hope you had a merry holiday.

  5. Sounds like a great time! We got the nerf type gun here too, though my 3 year old just calls it a BLASTER, lol.
    Have fun shopping!! I've been able to get out and get a few steals... always fun!

  6. I really miss those days of school Christmas parties and programs. They were so much fun! Your doggy should be so much happier now!
    Happy New Year!

  7. So glad you made it through the holidays! Looks like a busy, fun time in your household...well, for everyone except Juno! ;-)

    Blessings to you and your family in 2012!
