Christmas Vacation

Greg has had many 60-70 hour weeks at work recently. He also had a whole lot of paid time off saved up, so he decided to give himself a break and take the two weeks following Christmas off. I, as well as the kids, have so enjoyed having him home more. I was also able to cut back on working and only had to work a couple times during his vacation. We have had a phenomenal time living it up during these past two weeks by doing the following:
  • Played Elefun with the boys
  • Watched the entire seventh season of 24 (yes 24 hours worth!)
  • Ran at the gym
  • Played Wii Resort and Greg played a lot of Donkey Kong Country
  • I went to Zumba class
  • Took the boys swimming
  • Dejunked and made a D.I. run
  • Went on a date to see Little Fockers and ate at Cafe Zupas
  • Greg jammed with the band he plays back up drums for
  • Went out to dinner with Greg's Dad Kelly at Buca di Beppo
  • Shopped with our Christmas money
  • Cleaned and organized just about every room in the house
  • Sanded the wood above our mantle
  • Watched Alvin and The Chipmunks with Palmer about 15 times
  • Reupholstered our kitchen chairs
  • Slept in late
  • Cooked and ate yummy meals
  • Shared a large banana split at Leatherbys
  • Took the boys to the play place at our local fitness center
  • Played ping pong

It's been just fabulous! Oh, if there was only a way we could both be stay at home parents... that would surely be the life.
