"It looks like a sleigh exploded..."

Your house likely looks much like mine does today if you have children and celebrated Christmas yesterday.  To quote my dad's observation from a few Christmases ago, "It looks like a sleigh exploded."  If you’re a mom, you also likely worked as hard as I did in the days leading up to it.  And if you’re mortal like me, you were too tired by the end of yesterday to do very much about the mess that comes with sleigh explosions.  Today is a new day, and hopefully we moms will have the energy to restore order to the scene and figure out where all the new stuff is going to go.  With a to-do-list today that is almost as long as those of pre-Christmas, I will get started on it and leave you with a look at pictures from yesterday of our smiling children.  Some of the gifts that brought those smiles are masking them from view, but I know they're there, and that makes it all worth it.
