Post Holiday Quiet

It has been a crazy few days with lots of visiting, presents and excitement. It was wonderful and it can be a magical time especially watching my girls get into the spirit of the holiday. It was funny to see as we all came down the stairs for the first time at Christmas that my dog Sonny ran to his presents and couldn't wait. Before the kids even opened one he had ripped open all of his. I guess this shows that everyone loves Christmas. My girls got in on it shortly after.

I love the holidays and being able to spend time with my extended family but it has been so nice to have a little quiet too. Things can get so chaotic at this time of was nice to have a simple weekend on our own after running around on Christmas Eve and then having our own guests. Gillian did finally agree to let me get her haircut. I know you're wondering...let? isn't she four. I like it short and she likes it long but I think it's starting to grow on her. Maybe that's the wrong choice of words since it is a haircut but I love it!

Twas the Night Before Christmas

It was a busy night full of cousins and presents for the kids and being with family. I'm up late as usual and I'm enjoying the quiet in the house thinking about the excitement that the next day might hold.

I decided it was time to venture into the world of blogging and see what I thought. When I decided on the name for my blog which is my girls and me at first I thought of my daughters and then I thought about my dear friends. I am surrounded by girls with the exception of my husband who I love just as much but just couldn't think of a creative way to get him in there. Maybe I'll change the name later.

I should try to get some rest and share more about myself soon but for now I'll leave you with this quote I came across “When you are a mother, you are never really alone in your thoughts. A mother always has to think twice, once for herself and once for her child.” -Sophia Loren This is so true. My girls are always on my mind and in my heart.
