Two for [Monday]

I am officially on winter break (read: without childcare) until January. I am going to try to enjoy it. Today we went sledding and made homemade pizzas. With pizza, the messier it looks, the better.

I will be dedicating Sunday, December 27th to this task, including actually making it an electronic file. And sending it out, shortly thereafter. Enough excuses.

My kids are having a moment of peace right now. Those moments are rare.

I am going to aspire to post two pictures a day. Probably not so many words.

My mom is giving me a lot of clippings about simplifying and deep breathing. Little does she know that I'm already there.
