The week between Christmas and New Year's is always one of my favorites - at least since I work for a place that is always closed for that week. You are trying to relax, put toys together, eat more and hunker down.
However, my kids are a little tired of being together every moment for the last week, so some friends coming over is a welcomed distraction.
And the inaugural skate on the backyard rink. My biggest kid did NOT want to come inside - he could have been out there all day.
We have a few more days of this blissful existence before the return to the regular schedule. We'll try and enjoy every minute of it.
