Update before the Christmas Shananagin'

It has been too many weeks since I posted - I guess that is just part of this time of year! So, since I posted last, Jeff and I went to visit our project in Gibson's, Kim and Sven's place. Construction is comin' along, though it is funny that, as the designer, you see more things that could have been done better or should be fixed than you just appreciate how cool it is.

Otherwise, Jeff and I also went to his work's Christmas party a couple weekends ago where the inept Valet company actually had our car stolen! Yup, 2 cars and 4 sets of keys were taken under their watch, and our car happened to be one of the victim's. Well, long story short, our car was found! It is still sitting in forensics at the Police Station while we drive a rental with the 2 new car seats we bought, but we don't really mind since the rental is newer, fancier and an automatic!

Christmas Eve is tomorrow (!) and I have edited my to-do list to be more realistic and not completely disappoint myself. Next year, I am starting Christmas preparations in October. I should go to bed now since it will be another rough night - Max's fever was up to 103.7 today, so I sure hope he is alright.

Regular life stuff has been going on the past couple weeks, like Callum and Max getting bigger, cuter and smarter. They play amazingly well together and especially love wrestling in the crib and having a bath together. If I ever get upset with Max (like when he smears his blueberry breakfast on my white shirt!), Callum is quick to remind me, "he's just a baby, Mom". My 2 year old is scolding me.
Max has also managed to get his legs coordinated enough to crawl in the forward direction! And he has finally popped his first tooth, well, his 2 bottom teeth, actually! What a big boy!

Here's a pic someone took of Jeff at work - you know, inspecting stuff and making sure people do what he wants - he sometime calls himself a babysitter, actually.

Myself, I participated in the Festival of Nativities last weekend, playing the part of a singing shepherd in a group variation of God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen.

So, it is now officially Christmas time and I will stop blogging so Callum and I can set out our decorations and maybe tomorrow we will go get a tree! How is it that this time of year always sneaks up on us!
