The tree is down and most of the other stuff is put away. Dusting and vacuuming and sweeping and mopping need to occur. Desperately! Presents for my 'rents need to be wrapped. Run to the store needs to be made. Kids need lunch. But Nachos need to be eaten before I have the energy for all that. Ahhh Salty Chip, Salty Chip!!!

Back in Colo

We returned home about 11 last night. Nice to be home...no Great to be home. Spent most of today unpacking and doing laundry...and then Ava said her throat hurt. I looked in her throat and it looked like she had blisters on her tonsils. Justin took her to Urgent Care so I could continue to unpack and do laundry here at home and although her strep test came back negative the dr. gave her amoxicillin since Mallory had it almost 2 weeks ago.

We plan on celebrating Cmas with my parents on New Year's Eve, but if Ava is still illin' we will bump it to Friday.

Mo has been parked in my lap -- every time I sit down she is right there.

Ava and Mallory had their dance recital last night. We videotaped it and will bring it up there for Christmas so whomever wants to can watch it. My dad took some videos on his camera which I have posted here...

Ok, I can't seem to post any more...but will try in the morning.

So I took my last antibiotic last night and after the girls' bath Mallory felt warm and was shivering. 102 fever all day...took her to the doctor and it's strep. Poor kid...although she doesn't seem as miserable as I was.

The girls are writing their holiday cards to their teachers. I bought seasonal foam stickers they are decorating them with as well. I've got our pictures already, so need to start our cards this weekend.

I am definitely making Chex Mix again this year... Nichole- you better eat it with me when we are there (if you are reading!), but I still need to figure out what else to make- sweet-wise. I only want to make a couple...3 at the most...different kinds. Don't want to go OVERboard. Oh I know one of them has to be chocolate and sprinkle dipped pretzel rods. Ok, that leaves me with 2 more...ideas?

Tomorrow is Justin's work's party for kids... Hopefully they are both ok to go by then. ***crossing fingers***
