And what a great morning it is.....sun is shining, birds are chirping but most importantly the kids are still sleeping ( gotta love school holidays). And how are the school holidays going for everyone? Personally I haven't had a lot of time to spend with the kids as i've been at work and of course hubby has been away at work for the whole holidays as well so the kids haven't been doing much at all......makes them appreciate going to school more I say.
What kid doesn't love mexican? I can honestly say I haven't found one yet.
