  1. Happily our LR looked much the same…a few more chairs…family is big.

    It cleans up easily! THIS is one of my fave days, however…making chicken noodle soup…wearing cozy clothes…just doin’ nuthin’ and everything!

    Peace to you!

  2. This is a great picture. I imagine that everyone is in the kitchen sitting down to a big breakfast together. :)

  3. LOVE it! that is exactly how mine would look except for my cousins are clean freaks!! thank the heavens.
    but i love that picture. christmas mess is the best!

  4. It’s exactly what mine would have looked like if we didn’t get a blizzard and 20+ inches of snow! Today they finally lifted the “no travel” ban which was put in place on Wednesday. I suppose mine will look like that as soon as everyone can make it out of their driveways!

    And for anyone curious, I live in Brandon, South Dakota–which is 10 miles away from Sioux Falls, SD!

  5. HA!! That’s hilarious! That’s exactly what my pre-cleaned-tidy-all ready for company family room looked like at approximately the same time of day. Then I took the green garbage bag, got it all tidy again just in time for more family to arrive and open more gifts…..then did it all over again.
    Yet we think the house has to be spotless before company arrives.. HA! Who’s gonna notice??

  6. Did you sneak in my house and take a picture yesterday?! I had to do a double take b/c I could have sworn that was my house! Good times! Hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas.

  7. MAN! I forgot what it is like to have little ones. We didn’t have hardly anything mess because my son got an IPod Touch and a few things from his aunt. It was a very nice Christmas at my house:)

  8. Mine looked very similar to yours. I got it cleaned up by Fri night though. I can’t stand all that mess. I brought it allup to their rooms and then got those cleaned up and organized today. :)

  9. 10:37!!! It took us hours to open our gifts. Not because we had that many, but because we have a 5 yr. old who has inherited the careful opening the present so he can save the wrapping paper. And we open one at a time and the kids want to play with each gift. THEN, our living room looked like that.

    Now, our living room is completely devoid of anything. Including the rug. We are taking advantage of dh begin off work and are replacing the carpet with wood floors. Wish me luck ;-).

  10. Fun times! My son’s family room looked like this when the 2 “perfect” grandchildren finished opening their gifts. The iTouch gifts were in their stockings and those were the hit of the morning!

    Hope you’re feeling good again ~

  11. That is one of the most awesome photos I’ve seen all year! I believe it shows how amazingly blessed you and your family are.

    Our family room looked much the same on Christmas morning! And although today we are still buried in all the ‘Christmas mess’, I am so incredibly grateful that we have an amazing home to celebrate in, an income to afford the gifts and a family to share them with. We are blessed indeed!

    I hope you and your family have an incredibly New Year!

  12. you nailed it. That is pretty much what it looks like after our Christmas too. I just wasn’t brave enough to capture that part of Christmas in a picture. You have inspired me. Maybe next year I can be braver.

  13. I love it! Mine looked pretty much the same! And I love your to-do list, I’m on the same page – so much to get through and so little time though :)

  14. Exactly the same! Chaotic! Oh, by the way, my daughter got the same Fancy Nancy book. Love those!

  15. Love it!!!

    It’s 3 days later and my family room still looks like that..minus the wrapping paper.

    Teresa coudlnt’ have said it better though…

  16. Ha ha! My family room looked remarkably similiar, and with all of our post Christmas traveling, it doesn’t look much better yet! :)
    Hope you are feeling better, my friend. Happy New Year!
