We go today to pick up our Alex and tomorrow to pick up our nephew Brandon. Brandon will be here until Wed Night and Alex will be here for a full week. I'm so excited it's always a joy to have either one of them here, and now they'll both be here at the same time. Plus, Alex will finally be able to talk to Little Miss on the webcam, an event that Little Miss has been looking forward to for a long while.
Acer's fourth birthday is coming up in just over a week, on a Sunday. For some reason I got an idea in my brain and ran with it; I decided to have him baptized on the same day. Despite the thought that we'd celebrate Acer's birthday's quietly and his family days as a larger celebration, here I am, planning a large celebration for only four days before Christmas.
Acer's school has a Santa shop, with gifts from fifteen cents to ten dollars. Yesterday we sent Acer off with his list to buy for and a specified maximum amount to spend on each person. He came home with his gifts in sealed and labeled bags and seemed quite happy about it. I am quite sure that he was very actively involved in choosing them because .... They all JINGLE!
Sorry I haven't been posting as often lately, I just haven't had the extra oomph to do it after coming home from work and dealing with the could outside. That, combined with my house being in total disarray from the painting means that I just haven't been spending that much time on the computer at all.
We're all okay, Little Miss is okay, we're just playing the waiting game now.
