A groggy good morning to you!
I woke up at midnight last night to the sound of Mira laughing and followed it down to the living room where she had turned on Netflix and built a blanket fort. I forced her back upstairs and eventually got her back to sleep. She has dropped her nap, but the past few weeks has occasionally fallen asleep in the late afternoon, which makes her not tired at night, so she doesn't sleep well, and then she falls asleep late afternoon again. I know from experience with Ina and Cora that this stage doesn't last forever, but it isn't so fun while we are in it. The coffee just doesn't seem strong enough this morning.
Last night Dan walked in the door from work and told everyone to put on a coat and shoes and we walked about a mile from our house to place with better views to see the Christmas star. Usually I am the one rallying the family for a walk, so I loved following him out the door.
While our view wasn't amazing, this picture is so cool! I can't wait to show Ina when she wakes up this morning.
Cora spent half of the walk home on my shoulders and the other half pretending she was a lion cub getting ready to pounce on Ina. We made it home in time to eat a delicious dinner made by Nonnie (sausage, potatoes, and cabbage!).
I am hoping for an incredibly efficient work day today and thankful that the sun will start shining a bit more each day.
Have a great one! <3
