We just said goodbye to Dave and Tanya after a very enjoyable visit. We hadn’t seen them in over two months and they hadn’t been here in much longer than that, so it was nice to play host. We took the kids bowling yesterday, which was fun (Justin got his first spare!); Brayden was super hyper and lost interest in the game pretty quickly, but he didn’t fuss or complain, and everyone seemed to have a good time. The boys were pretty excited to get early Christmas presents from our visitors, including a very cool dinosaur egg that should hatch by tomorrow. Awesome.
I made a Greek feast for supper that turned out pretty well, then the kids played some Wii and WENT TO BED EARLY. That last point deserves to be all caps because ever since the time change last weekend, Justin has been getting up right at 5:00 and still not going down until 8:00 or even 8:30. I realize he doesn’t need as much sleep as other kids his age, but the fatigue was starting to show — most nights he’s been yawning by 7:00 and most mornings he’s been super cranky and argumentative. So anyway, he went down at 7:30 last night and slept all the way to 5:30 this morning, so maybe he’s finally adjusting. (You know you’re in trouble when you’re excited that your son “slept in” until 5:30, but whatever.)
