Well, we got a few days off from the visiting family, as they stayed at the mother-in-laws house for a few days; now, we're back to the chaos that is my vacation. With an additional three kids running around it's a bit loud around here (you have to go outside to make a call, and it's cold out there!)
Anyway, I've got the solution for the stress of the season. I bring in Mr. Gingerbread Man!
