You have such a long break, Kristy!

Yes, I can see how that would be a huge benefit of having teens! My boys seem to need to be entertained all the time. I'm working this week so it has been a bit of a challenge. Larry is home, thankfully, but I hear "MOM!" about a zillion times a day. Landon isn't used to having the boys home either, and he isn't so thrilled about it! He's used to being the king of the jungle while they are at school! LOL!

Let's see... they spent their Christmas money yesterday. We'll spend New Year's Eve with my parents. I'm guessing they'll hit up a movie or two at the dollar theater and we'll go to the jump place too. Other than that, not much else to do! The older boys received electric scooters and they've been outside a bit trying to get the hang of those (Brrrr!).

It would be really hard trying to work with all the boys home.

They can be a bit needy while I'm working, that's for sure. It works well when it is just Landon and I at home because he knows our routine and how things work. When the older boys are here they just bicker and fight the entire time and somehow forget that I am working. However, I do get up super early to try and get as much done as I can before they wake each day. That really seems to help.
