Unfortunately I've had some trouble sleeping the past 3 nights... I keep waking up in the middle of the night and having trouble getting back to sleep. Or like the other day when Zach and I each were awake at 6am or so and couldn't get back to sleep, which ended up being a bit nice actually since we just sat in bed talking for a while before getting out of bed, but it's also not a good pattern to get started with already.
This morning we were up by about 8am, Jen and Daddy came downstairs soon after. Zach made pancakes for breakfast, and then they went to the store for some goodies before we all then took off to check in on Jessica and Jonathan's cats and then go into Geneva. Luckily the sun came out today, for the first time in a good week or so. We walked around old town a bit, then stopped by the Christmas market downtown and then did a bit of shopping. We had plans to have a few friends for dinner at night, so we headed back home around 5 and started getting ready for the evening.
We quickly tidied up the house, I made corn casserole and Zach got the chickens and some potatoes and carrots cooking, and then Cathy, Cary, and Sara all got here soon after 7pm. Dinner turned out great, and then we had the "bouche de noel" (a traditional yule log cake) that Cathy brought for dessert. It was a fun time, I'm glad we decided to do this for christmas eve.
Now I think we'll have to call Mom and then it will be bed time. Merry Christmas, everyone. =)
