I don't usually let women in my kitchen!
Since we don't have any contact with anyone on either side of the family, no worries about last minute visitors, traveling around from location to location, or last minute changes in plans.
It's just us and the kids and we don't even have to change out of our PJ's (which is half the fun of the day!).
The other half being playing with the kids new toys when they aren't looking!!
