I hadn't intended on taking a break from the blog this Christmas, but it appears I have. To all who have stopped in after seeing the display at the Park of Lights, first, thanks and second, stop back in. I'm not usually this absent. Promise.

We've had a few snow days, a school Christmas program, school parties, a 7th birthday and bowling party, a family Christmas with my new step sisters and brother and all their kids, Festivus, a trip to the ER to get a piece of wood out of Kady's eye, working the entrance gate at the Park and now finally Christmas Eve. We're worn the heck out. I have oodles of pictures - the most exciting of which are of Festivus where my husband donned a g-string made of candy necklaces - which I'll post Friday when I've had a chance to catch my breath.

In the meantime, I'll share a picture of my kids tonight in the shirts the dogs caused them to get weeks before Christmas because the stupid chewing beasts shredded the package when the mailman left it within beagle-reach:

Because nothing says Merry Christmas like skulls.

Love the shirts. That's exactly the kind of thing Tim would have me put our kids in for Christmas. He bought a onesie with the word "CRAP" across the front of it for Charlie to wear in our Christmas card photo. The photo that we never took because, really, who has time for that crap?

Can't wait to see the candy thong. Sounds like fun.

Merry Christmas!

I loved the look on your face at the bowling alley. "Isn't that the diva??" LOL! Priceless!

They are so gorgeous and healthy looking, even if they do have skulls on their tees. lol
Tomas got a skull tee too, and Mia, she loves to wear her dress that has skulls aswell as love hearts on it... just too trendy :)
Your life sounds as busy as ours here, I guess it is when I have 4 kids and u have a husband...adding one more, lol
