with all of the above looming i decided to take a break from the internet.
no blogging. no facebooking. no pinterest. no message boards.
...ok- that's sort of a lie. i did do all of those things, but minimally. just to stay current (it's amazing how much shit goes down in 1 1/2 week's time).
the husband & i both had the same days off so we spent all of it with our girls. & holy crap it was fun. they're both at a perfect age, 2 &1. everything is new & awesome to them (except broccoli. i tried.) & this was the first year alex actually "got" Christmas.
no matter how much i tried to drill the whole baby Jesus thing home, she still thinks Christmas = presents. but that's normal, right?
the kid loved presents. loved looking at them, opening them, giving them, taking them- everything.
so much in fact that she still asks me for presents on a daily basis.
"mamma, i have present?"
"uh, Christmas is over kiddo. here, have a popsicle."
popsicles = better than presents.
we kept it simple in the bird household this year.
a couple presents for each other & some stocking awesomeness.
fun little things for the girls & 1 BIG present to share. a pretty kick ass teepee. i might actually like it better than they do.
i know telling you this without pictures is like someone saying, "LOOK! there's BIGFOOT!" & you get all stoked to see only to realize that you don't have your glasses on. damnit.
but i'll get pictures up later. because as usual, it's busy time.
i shot a wedding on the 31st & i've got 1500+ pictures to edit.
plus today = first day back to work. oh, & it also = hi. i'm sick.
yes. sore throat. fever. headache. chills. nausea coupled with ravenous hunger. all that neat stuff.
but moving on.
i'm looking forward to getting back into the swing of things.
i've got a pretty sweet Mary Kay giveaway coming your way plus a 25% off promise for those that don't win. yay- mom stuff! and non-mom stuff!
i think i equate Mary Kay with mom because that's what my mom used. & i was forbidden to touch it. but there were so many pretty pink bottles that my urge to explore them got the best of me.
and i got spanked.
but we're all grown ups here now. so we can touch whatever we want.
alright. now i have to figure out a way to get home & not go near my children in any way to avoid sick children...
