time to quit hybernating

For the Thanksgiving holiday we drove to see all our family in North and South Carolina. The day after Thanksgiving we went to Myrtle Beach with my little sister Joni and her boys. It really wasn't warm enough to play in the water, but what's a mom to do? My sister Christie wanted to know what my house looked like all decked for the holidays: Nothing fancy. Niel and I are very likely going to be closing on this house in March. Yea! Our first home, and we won't even have to move! One of my favorite gifts I have given for Christmas this year was this book to Niel, N., and W. and as part of the gift, I gave my promise to take them all out to the movie with popcorn and drinks and candy! I have already read 173 pages of 268 to them... it won't be long. Cinema 8, here we come!

I made W. a super hero outfit for Christmas. N. fell out of her bed in the middle of the night last night. That top bunk blunder has my little girl sleeping (per her request) on the floor tonight and maybe many nights hereafter. Everything "food" came from a straw for her today. She likes it when we say "Aww, Nan, you poor thing". (Sometimes when W. gets hurt and I say that to him, N. gets pouty and says, "I WANT TO BE POOR!") I'd say she's poor now.
