I feel like I still haven't joined the real word and I'm a bit lazy with the whole family on vacation. I'll get there soon...I promise.
Our favorite gifts were a karaoke machine which I see getting a lot of use and will have me wondering what I was thinking when I hearing Call me Maybe for the millionth time. I'm kidding, well kind of. I love and that it makes them happy. I also have to admit that I may have belted out a tune or two with them even though I can't sing. Now that I teach kindergarten I've left that at the door. I sing everything now.
The other was our magic kit. They are both amazed by their own skills. I love that they are so proud when they get the trick right.
These two are the best gifts I've ever received. I can't imagine life without them...even when they're making me crazy. It was a perfect holiday full of family visits and wonderful memories.
Next up we will be ringing in the New Year with the kids. I don't even remember what going out to celebrate the new year is like. We'll be eating pizza bagels and toasting with sparkling cider long before midnight but I would not have it any other way. I also found this super cute printable for the kids and it has been updated for 2013.
