Whoa... what a 2 week whirlwind! The last time I blogged was before Christmas and now we are already into the new year! OK, only 4 days but still...
So here is a quick recap of what's been happening around Life as I Know it since last we met...
Christmas: Christmas was lovely. The present opening commenced at around 7:15am (the first kid was up at 5:15 but we made him go back to bed). We laid around in our PJs all day, played, built Legos, and relaxed. The hubs made a gigantic, delicious breakfast for us...pancakes, eggs, bacon, sausage, hashbrowns, toast, fruit and muffins! It was so good and we ended up snacking on leftovers for the rest of the day. Mid afternoon the hubs started feeling ill, and by 4pm he was flat out sick with a stomach bug. Thankfully no one else in the house got it and it was only a 24 hour bug.
Birthdays: We celebrated Alec's birthday on Sunday and then Tuesday was my birthday. I had to work, but we got some friends together and all went out for a nice dinner. The food was great as was the company, and it made turning 40 a tad bit easier! :)

New Years Eve Eve: Family trip to see the new Star Wars movie!! I think I need to see it again.
New Years Eve: Very low key evening. We stayed home, made BBQ chicken pizza and watched the original Star Wars. The boys made it to about 10:30, then the hubs and I barely made it to midnight. #lifeofaparent #weareold
New Years Day: Off to see the in-laws to celebrate Christmas! After quickly opening presents, we left the kids and headed north to Mt. Tremblant in Quebec for my birthday trip. It was so snowy and pretty!! We ate, shopped, relaxed and went snowmobiling, A wonderful way to spend my 40th! :)

And.... now it's back to regular programming. Although I didn't have a "Christmas break" per se, I did have a lot of days off during the past 2 weeks. It was also nice with Nick on school break... mornings were much more relaxed since we didn't have a bus to catch, and evenings were nice too since there wasn't a mandatory bedtime or homework. In some respects I like being back on our normal schedule, but I also wouldn't mind another few weeks of holiday schedule!
So... what does January hold for me?? You'll have to check out the next blog post!
I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and your 2016 is off to an amazing start!
