I’ve got nothing here today but sick kids and tons of guilt over all the holiday “fun” that we still haven’t gotten to and need to get done in eight days or ruin my children’s lives forever. Okay, that might be a wee bit dramatic, but that is just a glimpse at my inner dialogue.

Yesterday I attempted to take more pictures of the children, somewhat successfully. This photo was begging for a funny caption. Everyone put on your thinking caps and the best caption will win a non-existent prize of my choosing. Oh yeah, I am generous like that.

    Hmm for a caption, how about “Mom’ll put you guys up here too if you don’t turn around and smile, Quick!”

    Merry Christmas, and I love love love the mantle and wreath.
