The Rest of Our Break

The kids had about 2 1/2 weeks off in total, and it's been a great break. I had to work a few days last week, but it's a very slow time for my company, so it was pretty chill for me. Today is going to be tough, as the kids are back in school, and I'll be for real back at work. So let's reminisce about our great break, shall we?

This kid loves puzzles!

I love that we get to spend so much time with grandparents.
Drew is helping Babs wash dishes. {grin}

Trent went to a birthday party over the break for a girl in his class.
This is the INDOOR swimming pool at her house.

Trying to undress at bedtime! #fail

Nothing like a good snuggle at bedtime on the couch. Love when he falls asleep on me!

After Christmas cooperation on a Star Wars puzzle
{It's really Drew putting pieces 'together' and Trent fixing it}

I did get a bestie day with Kristen, so my in-laws kept the kids. Win-win!

Because what better way to watch TV than in your tutu and tiara?

Because duh besties and hearts!

SO excited about chicken and waffles!

So NOT excited about a speeding ticket. Womp, womp.

Brent and I had a good laugh about this. 
Yes, they have beds. No, they don't want to sleep in them.
We even converted Drew's crib into a toddler bed, and she STILL won't sleep in it!

We had a New Year's Eve out-of-town wedding, so my parents kept the kids, and we hit the road for Jacksonville, TX. Lots of great friends were there, and we had a great time celebrating.

All dolled up!

Nourishment like this was MUCH needed on New Year's Day!

We had Drew's birthday party on her birthday {January 2}, but there'll be a separate post for that!

When you skip your nap, this might happen at 6:00...
This might also sum up how we all feel at the end of break!

We watched way too much TV, ate too much junk, stayed up way too late, slept too little...overall, we had too much fun!

I'm glad you got to have a really nice break. I was commenting to Chris on Sunday night that this was the first break I've had in a really long time that actually FELT like it had been 2 weeks and didn't just fly by.
