The Aftermath of Christmas.

Am I the only one who feels sad Christmas is over?  I wish we had more Christmas Eves!  They are the best!  Christmas Eve and Christmas day were everything I hoped for.  They were perfect, surrounded by family, everyone in cute holiday outfits, lots and lots of yummy foods.  I hope that yours was fabulous too!  Like so many other families my kids were spoiled by Santa and family.  I honestly feel they may have gotten a little too much, but its just once a year.  I am super grateful for the gifts, but its the love you give your children that means the most.

One of the best parts of the last few days have been my parents visiting.  I was able to see them for four days, everyday.  It was sooo nice not only for me, but for Amira and Gia.  There is nothing like a grandparents love.  They are gone now, back home in Vancouver.  Hopefully we will be visiting them next weekend for a few days. 
The day after Christmas is a wild time for kids. They have finally talked mommy and daddy into opening all the toy boxes of torment.  Why are toys packaged so damn hard into the box?!  My littles received so many gifts I actually put some up and away in the closets.  They wont even know, plus I really want them to appreciate the presents.  My next project is going through both of their rooms and donating all the things they have grown out of and don't play with anymore. 
Look at those smiles.  You'd never tell that both of them are sick again with horrible colds and coughs.  We woke up this morning to Gia throwing up on Amira.  So lovely.  I was able to catch some of the vomit in my hands.  Mom Problems!

Thank you so much for reading.  Much love, Linzi

  5. How fun! My sweet girl is sick as well (I'm pretty sure she has the flu) so Christmas was not as fun for us as it normally is. Looks like a fun mess :)
