December 23rd: Lazy days

Today was such a lovely lazy day!  Alex, Siqi, Eric and I had stayed up until nearly two A.M. playing Agricola, but the kids let us sleep in until 8:30!  Wheee!  When they got up, we had a few random books to enjoy.  A Christmas MadLibs, that Serenity did a few out of with much hilarity, and a Hide and Hug Olaf book and Olaf plush, and a Sweet Smells of Christmas book that I read Maia at least a dozen times today.  It had scratch and sniff parts that she thought was amazing.  I spent pretty much the whole day like this, reading my book, alternating with reading to one or the other of the children.  So nice!

They played a bit of Skylanders and a lot of Kingdom for Keflings, a fun little building game on the X-box.  I cleaned out the post office, and we closed up a few more envelopes.  I replaced them with envelopes for the five of us, which will be our last batch for this year.  It’s been so much fun, and Serenity asked if we can keep the post office open year-round.  So we will have to think about how best to do that.  =)  We were supposed to watch family movies, but I haven’t gotten around to making the yearly dvd  yet.  But I am letting that go and will try to get it done next week when we are off school.

Maia dragged around this giant bag of leftover chips for two days =)  We ate more than I thought we would!
