I hope everyone had a great week. Thanks for checking out my weekly series, Week in Review, posted every Friday. Enjoy a recap of how the week went down, and tell me about yours.
1) What’s gotten my attention this week?
My friend tagged me in the comments of this SNL clip about what Christmas for parents is like. It’s spot on.
2) What post should you check out?
For a laugh check out Family Sends the Most Awkward Christmas Cards for 15 Years. Too funny!
3) What’s been going on this week?
We are getting ready for Christmas and the kids’ winter break. I have to give a shout out to my dad and step-mom for getting the kids a play set for the backyard and my wonderful husband for putting it together in December.
We made a visit to see Santa that turned out to be the funniest one yet. The baby was okay with it. This is as close as my son would get. My daughter wouldn’t even get in the picture. They were excited beforehand though.
4) What’s going on this weekend?
We are continuing our annual holiday marathon of family celebrations with Christmas 2 of 4 and 3 of 4. When my kids were younger this was very stressful. Essentially we were taking 2 toddlers to not-kid-proofed homes and off their schedule. Also, before my son was diagnosed with autism we didn’t know why certain things were so difficult for him. A tide has begun to turn though. The two bigger kids are now at an age were things are more manageable. We are actually enjoying the holidays instead of just getting through them. I guess I’m a recovering bah hum bug mom.
5) Did you miss this post?
Book Reviews: Beartown, Before We Were Yours, Agatha H. and the Airship City Check out some book reviews to see if there’s anything you want to read over the holidays.
6) What did my kids create?

Thanks for reading, and I hope you have a Merry Christmas!
