Scenes From Christmas Break

Christmas Break could pretty much be summed up like this... lots of relaxing, sleeping in, naps, eating, etc.  I still can't believe it's over - we've been trying to get back into the swing of things this week - eating healthy, working out but Tatum has been sick so we're taking it slowly.

We did a lot of playing - Tatum was loving his new toys and Derek and I both had fun testing them out too.  I did a big playroom clean out too and we now have a big box of baby toys in the basement since Tatum doesn't play with them as much anymore.

Lots of big family dinners, small family dinners just the three of us, nights with friends and just going with the flow - what Christmas Break is about!

We went to Disney on Ice with some friends for a birthday party and the Mickey lover our little boy is was very into it with all the action, lights and music.

We have a family football pool (which thanks to Clemson I won the pool!) so we usually get together a night to all watch together with a bunch of family - this year we went out.

The library had a little NYE countdown party for kids a few days before New Year's Eve that Tatum enjoyed and one of our best friends also visited for the night for take out, drinks and chatting.

We went out NYE but didn't get a single picture!  It was fun but as Tatum gets older, next year I definitely want to stay in with him.  New Year's Day was centered around the Penn State game - we had a viewing party and despite the loss had a nice day.

And last but not least, we took down Christmas.  I'm so sad to see it go but having the house clean and tidy is nice.  We do still have our living room tree up and will probably take that down this weekend.
