Got Kids??

Well, the holiday's are over. Presents unwrapped, decorations put up (if you're lucky), and things are starting to get back to normal. My question is, what to do with all this stuff?
We have 3 kids, our oldest just turned 4, our middle child will be 3 in February, and our youngest is almost 6 months old. So we got A LOT of stuff for Christmas.
We hosted Christmas Eve at our house this year, for the first time. For about 3 days, our house (at least the visible parts) were cleaner than ever before. Now, 2 weeks after Christmas, we are living in C.H.A.O.S. all over again (for the non-Flybabies reading this, CHAOS is Can't Have Anyone Over Syndrome). So what to do.
I am interested in all ideas. How do you find time to clean, cook, spend quality time with the kids, quality time with your significant other, run errands, keep up with laundry, and all the other things that come with being a mom. Please, I am begging!! I love the FlyLady site, but it just is not working for me (or maybe I am not working hard enough...because the site makes it seem so simple). Our house is constantly a wreck, I am constantly behind on laundry, dishes, general cleaning....
Any and all advice will be more than welcomed.
Thanks in advance.

with love,
