Today was a lazy day.

I woke up late this morning, much like I do every morning. It's hard to convince yourself to get up if your two month old insists on sleeping in until 9:30 at the earliest every morning. I got Olivia and myself clean, and then decided it was a day to clean big.

Instead I came upstairs and ate, then when Olivia fell asleep around noon for her afternoon nap. I went to sleep with her.

I was awoken by Ellie, calling around 2:30 to let me know she and Andy would be coming over later this evening. Yey! Except, I had yet to clean anything. So, I gathered up my Olivia, and took her to the kitchen and began my task at hand.

Olivia helps me wash dishes.

I washed the mountain of dishes, and it took forever. I've been Christams shopping and running errands all week, and I don't have a dishwasher. If I don't do them for two days even if we don't eat dinner at home, they mound up pretty quickly.

It's snowing like crazy out there, too. That might have had something to do with my sleepiness. I'm not sure. But it sure is beautiful, and it came with perfect timing. The Stagers were able to make it into town for the holiday without fighting the storm, and it's going to stop before Christmas Eve, so those last minute items can still be picked up without the fear of bulldozing every curb on the way to the mall. Also, it's beautiful outside, and it should be sticking around for Christmas day.

So, maybe if I'm brave enough, and Olivia's little cold is gone, I'll take my sweet Thing out in the snow on Christmas day for some pictures. If I do, I promise to post some of the good ones here for you all to see.

That's all I have for everyone on this lazy day. Merry Christmas, everyone. I hope you get everything you want, but you only want what you need.
