Friday.  Thank you.
I survived my first week back in the office after eight weeks of maternity leave.
It actually went really well. 
I was telling John Wayne that I crave routine and I love being back in our routine. 
He called me crazy.
My Mom is watching both of the littles.
Bless her.
I thought her week had gone relatively well too.
But I just talked to her.
She just changed five diapers in ten minutes.
Maybe my first week back will be my last.
Now onto a few phone photos of our week.
Now that our cards have made their way to the mailboxes of our friends and family, all of my blog friends can see them too.
I'm really happy with how they turned out: family picture on the front, pictures of the kids on the inside and GW's birth announcement on the back.
Last Saturday, I stayed up into the wee hours of the night and got the cards ready to go in the mail while everyone else in the house was sleeping.
The Little Lady showing off her new Christmas PJs.
They say "I've been good ALL year."
That's debatable...
We've been having "movie nights."
The Little Lady loves this.
We get out lots of blankets and pillows and make popcorn.
Would you look at this...the Little Buckaroo is trying to steal our popcorn, or pop pop as the Little Lady calls it.
Santa has been regularly making his way to our house in a big brown truck.
My home office looks like a UPS warehouse.
And just because...
Have a great weekend friends!
life rearranged

Changing five diapers in ten minutes is the least of Grandma's worries! We've had a good week too!
