Yes...this is ALL about me, and mine. Marvellously self indulgent, feel free to tell me how splendid I am, leave comments, nice ones please, I have little kids and teenagers who can do the rude stuff. I am a grandma, to the glorious Joshua, I'm allowed to look frazzled and weary, I earned it. The older I get, the more I see that hanging on and being patient is worth it! They ( whoever 'they' are) are so right when they say you never know what is around the corner, it isn't always an articulated truck! It is vital to make the time for making memories, friends are the greatest treasure, I love mine. I am rich!

Cute poem, mom...not so cute. When people give my kids gifts that are too noisy or messy, they mysteriously disappear and I give them to Toys for Tots the next year.

GLitter pens and BEN 10 Toys - sounds like lots of treasures. Not the fights with H, but the rest sounds perfectly delightful - especially the festive time glee.
The boys are adorable - and glad to see mine aren't the only ones who wear shorts inside in winter, or perform acrobatics on the furniture. What a wonderfully crazy and chaotic and fun and mischievous hous you have! A Very Happy Christmas to you all!
