Sophia has the right idea - a Christmas nap!
And now it's today, the day after Christmas. Now what? Yes, the kids are watching "Despicable Me," one of our son's gifts, but after that my husband and I have decided that we all want to get out of the house. (Isn't it nice how parents can decide what their kids want sometimes?) After some discussion, and more drama from our daughter, who did NOT like her brother's idea of something fun to do, we've arrived at a plan: a visit to the local animal shelter to play with the cats (for our daughter, whose first choice, the M.O.S.T. in Syracuse, is closed today - you'd think they did that on purpose just to thwart her), a drive down through the hills of Central NY, and a visit to the Northeast Classic Car Museum (our son's idea, and something we've been meaning to do for months anyhow). A family day out should be a good way to enjoy the rest of the holiday weekend. Maybe we'll go near a craft store I can look in (for after-holiday bargains). Hey, I can hope, right?
