On The Second Day of Christmas, My True Love Gave to Me …

The gift of another baby … kidding, but who knows, the possibility always exists.  In fact, Maddy loves mommy’s “because they give us new babies”.   I love the Christmas season.  I love it for so many reasons, but one of the top ten is that we take a break and just hang out. 18 year olds to 1 year olds kick back and hang out.   We play with our new toys (most of which are in the extreme realm) and simply relish in having to do nothing.  Dan, Me and our kids are some of the luckiest people we know, in that we don’t have to cram months of together time into 2 weeks of Christmas break because we homeschool and we and our kids are together every single day.

What do the KelloggShow peeps do during Christmas Break, so many of you have asked??  Well, as you know, throughout every year we are in the river, on the mountain; hiking, biking, boarding, camping, rafting, kayaking, climbing, caving … you name it we are out there doing it.  It keeps us alive, it keeps us healthy and young spirited.  It keeps us engaged in living.  But, during these two weeks of our staycation we, like everyone else, retreat from our daily lives.  For us that means we kick back, eat tons of yummy treats, read, color and play enough PS3 to last an entire year, which is great cuz throughout the other 50 weeks of the year the kids are OUTSIDE kids!

From our Home to Yours, Merry Christmas!!

  1. I got so excited when I read the first sentence, only to grin and smile at the second. We spend our Christmas doing all sorts of things we don’t get to do throughout the year, like bonding, biking (FL, warmest Christmas in the past 8 years) and being “crazy”. You guys spend your Christmas doing things everyone does year round! Love it! Christmas Blessings to you and yours.

  2. Celebration of life everyday is what you give me. There is no ostentatiousness in anything you do. You don’t throw money around, you don’t focus on the material things, your family just lives their life and I am so inspired. Further people tend to think the twelve days of christmas start around the 12 or 13th of December. Apple was giving away free apps throughout Advent in honor of the twelve days of Christmas. Laughable because it’s so wrong.

  3. Susie,

    I sometimes read the buzz. I get tired of the gunsels and don’t read it for a while.

    I see your post and went and voted for Grady.

    Keep it up. I admire you and Dan for what you do with your family. Don’t let the cowards get you down.


    • =)) thanks a ton!! My mom instincts roared over there, but really … who cares? A few of them are just a bunch of whining babies. Thanks for the words of support, I’m sure Grady will appreciate them as much as we do!!
