With Christmas bearing down, the blog has taken a back seat. Preparations for the 24th and 25th have pretty much been completed. Our colds seem to have run their courses, we're in the merely sniffling aftermath.
Our Christmas cards were sent out this afternoon, so they'll actually be arriving during the season of Christmas (and not before). I'd like to say it's because we're so liturgically correct, but it's more due to a late-scheduled photo shoot of the kids.
While Shelley is away tonight at a high school reunion of sorts - a traditional gathering on Christmas Eve eve - I'm home with the kids and wrapped some presents tonight.
Kai is sleeping somewhat regularly now: asleep shortly after 7 p.m. and up at 6 a.m. He will squawk intermittently through the night but is able to settle himself. The other night Shelley had 6 consecutive hours of sleep and was a bit unsure of what to do with all that rest.
Rei has not ventured onto the potty since garnering herself one Rosebud chocolate and special sticker. She requests diapers and we're not prepared to press the issue. Here's hoping she decides for herself that big girl underwear is the way to go.
So that's where we are these days.
