When Matt got home from work we decorated the sugar cookies together. They are yummy.
I had been trying to figure out a way to display our Christmas cards when I came across this idea online, so I thought I'd share. It works great.
This week I've been working really hard at getting Ethan on a schedule (eat, awake time, sleep... every three hours), and it's been going great. I've been doing the Babywise thing. He has been taking 4 naps a day that are 1.5-2 hours, and sleeping about 6.5 hours at night (from about 9:30-4:00), then another 2.5 hours and waking up at 7. I have a feeling he may start sleeping 8 or 9 hours soon (at least I'm hoping). He's definitely more happy and pleasant now that he's getting consistent and sufficient sleep. Plus I'm a happy momma since I'm feeling more rested :) I am loving these naps, I'm able to get so much done during the day now. It took a few days for him to get adjusted to the naps, but now he's doing great.
Tonight we're going out for sushi with my brother. We're going to his favorite place in Riverside. Matt and I haven't been to this place yet. Matt's brother Dan flew into town from Michigan last night and he'll be here for the week, and then his sister and her husband and four kids are coming in on Sunday. The whole Hekman family will be here for Christmas, it should be a good time. Christmas Eve my mom and brother are coming over for our usual appetizers and gifts, and the Flores Family will be stopping by too. I'm ready for Christmas now... the gifts are wrapped under the tree, the cookies are baked, and my house is clean :)
