Time to Sparkle Link Party #43

Do you hear that? Listen real close…

That’s the sound of nothing! My kids finally went back to school! Their Christmas break lasted 23 long days due to the crazy snowstorm we had last week, and this Momma was ready for that big, yellow bus to arrive this morning! I have to admit, I’ve had such a fun time playing games, watching movies, and snuggling up with my boys, but it was time to get back to normal.

We had one last hurrah this weekend and took the kids to that awesome indoor water park I told you about last week (check out my insta-pics here and here). My little fishies swam their little hearts out all day long and when their heads hit that pillow, they were OUT! Lots of smiles, laughs, and memories made. That’s all a Momma can ask for. 🙂

Here’s a look at last week’s posts in case you missed any:
