Enjoy!

That's how I felt today after finishing the shopping, Santa was not in today for a photo with Vivi, Dylan argued over everything and was just a smart mouth, Jacqui needed to runn all over to see friends and then.....I cooked for 4 1/2 hours getting tomorrows dinner started, tonights supper and I still need to bake 2 pies. Then I had to fix a gift gone wrong that I was making and Vivi wouldn't let anyone hold her except me. Is it bed time yet? Happy Holidays to all of you and your!
