This week, we have a break from home schooling. The kids and I have been looking forward to it and plan to use the time to relax, visit with friends and get ready for the new year. I'll be posting more on that later.
Our traditional day after Christmas takes us shopping. Reilly and Dane were blessed to have received some money as Christmas gifts and are looking forward to heading out and seeing what deals they can find on things they may have wanted, but didn't get for Christmas. I normally despise going shopping but have to admit that now that the kids are getting older, it can be pretty fun.
In the meantime, I hope this menu helps to take the stress off of meal planning for you and allows you to enjoy this last week of 2011!
