Ron and I spent New Years Eve in Otsego with our friends Eric and Jen. We've gone to each others' homes for the past few years, taking turns with the hour long drive. Well, Ron and I actually were more tired than anything, and decided to crash there that night. The next day was the family Christmas party for Ron's side, so we picked up the kids from my parents and headed over. Lucy had been up since 6:00 AM (that's early for her) and then of course didn't get a nap. We got there are noon, left around 4:30, and Lucy fell asleep somewhere between Grandville and Hudsonville. We put her in her bed when we got home, and she stayed asleep (despite an effort around 6:30 to wake her up for a while). I did change her into PJ's and she went right back down, and didn't get up until the next morning at her usual time! So, essentially she slept from 4:30 PM to 6:30 AM! I don't think she ever slept that long, even as a baby.
We've finished working on the fireplace surround, and to make a long story short, it is painted white. It looks nice, although it might need another coat or two. For tonight, I am done.
Tomorrow Ron goes back to work... and I am back on my own with the kids - which I was used to before, until I was spoiled for two weeks with his help. Ahh... I better head off to bed!
