:LIFE: Recovering from Christmas...

Gaging from the activity of my own favorite bloggers, I can see that I am not the only one for whom it has taken a bit of time to get back on track after Christmas.

Christmas can be especially rough on a kid...

This was her at about 10:00 am Friday morning. She did wake up shortly thereafter, but this was certainly past her normal sleeping time.

We certainly had a busy few days. Our Christmas activities began Wednesday afternoon at my parent's house and church at 5 p.m. Then, we went back home for a wonderful supper of prime rib and way too many other very tasty items. After our meal, the unwrapping of gifts commenced.

Kaitlin takes the expression of her excitement very seriously.

Santa made his annual stop at Grandma & Grandpa Pechous' to drop off Kaitlin's Christmas Eve pajamas. No siting again this year, though. That guy sure is sneaky.

On Christmas morning, Santa didn't disappoint. Kaitlin woke us up at about 7:30 a.m. with a very excited, "Mommy!! Santa was here! Santa left presents under my tree!"

He also cleaned his plate of cookies and shared his milk with Rudolph. It also looks like Rudolph liked the special feed we left him.

He also left a special note just for Kaitlin. (It is now safely tucked in her 'treasure box'.)

I bet you never saw a child so excited about a one egg frying pan. Well, this one-egg frying pan is the perfect size for Kaitlin's new kitchen (post and pictures to follow).

After we finished opening presents at home, we headed to Grandma & Grandpa Paulson's for lunch and more presents.

We spent the rest of the day watching movies and playing games. It was a great couple of days...

It took a couple days more just to get everything put away and back in order at home, but I think I'm finally there and it is time to start SCRAPPING!!!
