first I'd find out how much I'd have to keep out for taxes. I'd just pay off the vehicles and blow the rest. Kids would love one of those swings that both can ride on, a zoo pass, new clothes for all of us. New work boots for daddy. We'd only have a mtg payment if cars were paid off. would make life so much easier.
My hubby and I would pay off our debt and then we'd hire a lawyer to handle all this legal crap we're dealing with (we're trying to move overseas to Australia) and make our move. Then we'd probably put a down payment on a house in our new country and start our new adventure with the kids :)
pay off car loan, get out of cell contract and switch to walmart mobile, start CD savings for both kids, pay rent a few months in advance, get hubby better vehicle...
These are just a few things I would do but its really hard because 25k does not go as far as you would think.

I would donate some to my favorite charities that help the "helpless", and put some away for my son's college. Give some to the churches that have helped me 15 years ago. Put some away for emergencies. And pay off any bills we may have.

kiss my student loan good bye ! do a little dance ! then I would kiss a good chunk of my line of credit which was spent on renos to accomodate our Little one goodbye ! do another little dance ! then start stashing the money would have spent monthly paying these off into an account and go visit the husbands family in the states :)

pack a bag and take a vacation BY myself. I'd go to a beach somewhere chill for a week no phone, no internet no work no school and i'd worry about everything else when I got back.
then i'd be responsible, pay bills, pay off hubby's car, trade mine in put some down on student loans and put the rest in savings

Go on a date night with my husband!!!! Our last date night without our daughter was on my birthday last October...and before that it was before we had our daughter back in 2009!!!! And then of course...pay some bills....like rent for a whole year.....that would be amazing. Great question :)
