officially Christmas break

Today officially starts Christmas break for EVERYONE in the Power House.
Chris is WFH (working from home) tomorrow and then is off until the new year.

Now if only the weather gets cold enough that the home made ice skating rink they built in the back yard can freeze over!! We have been sledding 2 days in a row, and LOVING IT.

Last night, Ashlyn had her very first friend sleep over. She's had her "best friend cousin's" Malacky, Emma, and Taeya spend the night before, but never a friend. AND it was Kira's first friend sleep over as well. They were soooo cute, and soooo excited. We watched our family remake of Charlie Brown Christmas, had taco's, and the girls played in a strawberry shortcake pop up tent that Kira brought. They also enjoyed playing with dolly's in the bunk bed. They went to bed at 8:30 and at 10:30 I had to threatened to put them in separate beds if they didnt go to sleep. Finally they were asleep and slept until 8am. They had such a great time and they both said they can't wait to have another sleep over. Man, I can't believe how big she is getting, and how fast they are all growing up.

Well, I am tired, and off to dream land
Night all,

Scary, isn't it? Kadi just started with sleep overs this year. Her BFF Hannah trade off on who's house they go to! I was really nervous the first time she was gone from home overnight! But, I think going to Hannah's to spend the night is enough for now! Mommy can't handle her need for independence! I realize I still have a little one left, but before I know it, she'll be ready for nights away too!
