One last look...





We had a wonderful holiday. The boys were ecstatic that Santa came and dropped off gifts. They have been playing non-stop with all of their new loot. (Especially the Leapster2 and the Dyson vacuum cleaner.)
I've managed to put all of the Christmas decor away and clean out drawers and closets, under beds and anywhere else I have to put their things. Goodwill bags are packed, giveaway bags are packed, and storage stuff is ready to be set in the garage. Whew!
We've got one more round of holiday celebrations now, as Mr. Dunbar's brother and family have arrived.
Hoping you all had a good Christmas and are enjoying eachother and your new things.

Wow - you are so on the ball! I was just wondering when I wanted to start taking Christmas decor down and decided I better clean up from our Christmas eve party first. ;) Have a lovely day - and love your new little text on the left side of your blog!

Too bad we aren't closer--we could invite each other over to our "bare" homes! It feels wonderful, doesn't it? I love when it all comes and love when it goes! Your photos are amazing -- that one with Bogey's fanny is award-winning. And Monkey looks so grown up all of a sudden!

Your wrapping paper is so cute. My Christmas decor is packed away already too, and we also filled many bags to take to goodwill and make room for the new. It makes me feel a bit guilty actually to see how many new things my kids got.

Can't believe you're done packing it all up. Want to come here? I love the Christmas morning hair - we all had that look. Enjoy the rest of your celebrations.

I'm just like that... While the kiddos play, the day after, everything gets cleaned and put away. I need the sanity!! LOL
