With two kids born the week of Christmas, a lot of planning is required for the entire month of December. The kids are constantly celebrating ... gifts need to be purchased, wrapped and opened. This was only complicated this year, by them living in two households, but I think we made it work.
They had twice the birthday celebrations, twice the visits from Santa, twice the gifts and twice the fun. They are simply reminded how much they are loved. And, I was reminded how much I am loved too, when I wasn't able to be with them.

And, there is some sense of accomplishment about
completeing one of these Lego sets on my own, with a 4-yr-old!
we decided to pamper ourselves.
Also, there's a great sense of accomplishment when
surviving three games of bowling alone
with a 4 and an 8 year old!!
