We got back from our Christmas celebration with my mother's side of the family about an hour ago. The kids have since been bathed, and jammied, and are now eating a bit of a snack before bed (neither were real pleased with dinner--my family seems incapable of creating anything but bland food, and neither kid likes bland).
So far, so good. Next step: sort through everything, store toys that are too young for the kids, and find places for the rest.
So, my goal of surviving Christmas seems to have been managed. Next goal? Managing to get some of the toys taken and stored. The kids are really possessive. Even of things they never play with.
